Boys! The reason patches were invented. (Okay, so I actually have busted the knee out of a pair of pants within the past year, but that was an accident.)
Anyway. I like patching pants. It gets a little artsy. Sometimes.
Here is a sampling of some of my patch jobs:
My boys old super hero shirts became quite disgusting. SO… new ones!
Five easy steps for your very own super shirts!
#1 Buy compression shirts. Yes, I know any color other than white would hold up better, but I LOVE white.
#2 Iron double sided glue paper(bought in the same section with interfacing) to the felt color of your choice. Black for today’s shirts, because I thought it looked nice with the gray topstitching. Continue reading
I bought this navy polka dot chambray material a few months ago. Chambray looks like denim, but is a light-weight linen finished cloth. Most of the “denim” button down shirts you buy are actually chambray.

First off – My grandma’s begonias are gorgeous! I wanted to get their pictures there, but the sun was beating down too heavy.
So, I made some shorts for the boys for Independence Day. Why? Cause my mom always made us Fourth of July outfits, and I have to do everything my mom did. Duh! …Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, you know. Continue reading

I bought this nautical fabric thinking I was going to make myself a blouse with it. The fabric had such a nice feel to it. Upon a closer look at home, I decided the print repeated itself too often. Since I didn’t want three boats stacked on top of each other on the front of my shirt, I changed my mind and made pj’s for the boys. Continue reading
The husband always tries to talk me into buying, instead of sewing, my Easter dress. I always tell him no. I take pride in stressing myself out. Okay?! Continue reading
This is my sis, Jaleta. She is leaving at the end of the month to serve a church mission. The chalk drawing of Christ was done by one of the missionaries here.
Her skirt is by the same pattern as the post https://lauraluscreations.wordpress.com/2015/02/09/test-run-skirt/ … but this one gathers 1 1/2 the waist measurement. I think this is more flattering than what the pattern recommends, which is more than double the waist measurement.
Quick little puppy dog printed flannel pajama pants made roughly by New Look S0722.
Pertaining to the details of how they were made: First and foremost, you should know that these pajama pants DO in fact have a crotch seam, as shown above. Very important. Continue reading
