Celebrating my Boy.

I hear it over and over again. It’s so easy to find fabric/patterns for little girls, but very difficult to find cute, fun stuff to make for boys! Well, someone out there listened! I’ve been enjoying Celebrate the Boy month over at Made and Made by Rae and it finally got me to lay aside […]

Theming, Bags, New Mama Sets and More

Something I’m super excited about is carrying through the ‘think liz.’ theming throughout all of my sewing. BauerDesign is a great vendor on etsy who makes custom fabric tags. My brother-in-law surprised my sister-in-law with fabric tags for Christmas for her sewing creations and I fell in love with that idea! Kelly was great to […]

Felt Mr. Potato Head

A Sewing Saturday (and Sunday)

I haven’t sewn anything since Jude’s Kimono two days before he was born. That’s about 2 months now. Quite sad if you ask me. Well, we had another SEWcial this past Saturday, Jason and Jude had a ‘Daddy Day’ and I got to sew with the ladies! I took this opportunity to catch up on […]
