Monthly MashUp (7) Reveal - Johnny Bond

I hope you had a great weekend and had a chance to pick up your Johnny Bond MashUp patterns.  The mash-a-long will start tomorrow!  And now for the big reveal....


The Johnny B Good Hoodie from Shwin Designs and The Bond Top by Beatnik Kids when mashed together form this easy-wear hooded top with a functional bib and placket.  This top is perfect for boys OR girls!


The hood and bib use a woven fabric so of course I had to use the new Pandas in Paris double gauze from Imagine Gnats.  Those pandas slay me.


The body of the top uses a knit fabric so I chose some organic cotton striped jersey from Kitschy Coo.  That fabric is so soft to the touch that I was actually jealous of Bean when she was wearing it the other day, hehe.


Have you done a MashUp this month?  Add it to the InLinkz (*affiliate link) LinkUp below.  The mash-a-long starts tomorrow, but feel free to add ANY MashUps you'd like!

Invisibility Cloak - Happy Harry Potter

In honor of Harry Potter's birthday (July 31st) Rae Gun Ramblings is running a two week long series celebrating everything Harry and the series kicks off today!


Bean is really into make believe lately so I immediately knew I wanted to make an Invisibility Cloak.  She doesn't really know about Harry Potter yet, but I cannot wait until she's old enough to enjoy the book series.

Wreath Lacing Card Ornament - Christmas in July

With the heat of summer in full swing, it's hard to think about Christmas being just six months away.  I've always loved the Christmas in July theme so when I heard Deb from So Sew Easy was having a felt ornament series I jumped right on in.


Bean has been pretending to "sew" everything lately (I wonder where she picked that up?) so I thought a lacing card activity would be fun.  This Christmas Wreath Lacing Card Ornament is a great felt project for young kids.
