Crafting Con - Dr. Horrible

Have you heard of Crafting Con?  Maegen from Mae & K and Amy from Friends Stitched Together joined forces earlier this year to add a little more geekiness to the internet.  And when they asked if I'd be a part I was excited to join in on their Villains theme for October.


Bean has been obsessed with listening to Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long Blog for a few months now, so when I mentioned Dr. Horrible she was super excited to wear the costume. Though he is a villain (his goal is to join the Evil League of Evil), you sympathize with his character.  Bean hasn't seen the movie, so she doesn't totally get the whole theme, but she loves the songs and insists on listening to it in the car all the time which is fine by me, cause I love it too!

Head on over to Friends Stitched Together to see more of Bean in her Dr. Horrible costume.  Spoiler Alert: The costume is reversible cause he gets to join the league and his costume is different once he's in.

Marbella Dress

During the most recent Selfish Sewing Week, I decided I needed more dress patterns for myself and specifically a fancy-ish going out style.  As luck would have it, Kennis from Itch To Stitch was testing her Marbella Dress (*affiliate link) and I had the chance to join the testing group.

Pumpkin Coasters

I'm really excited about Halloween this year.  Bean is into anything "spoooooooky" lately so we've been having a lot of fun preparing for the big day.  Since she's only three years old, her idea of spooky is relatively tame so I've been sticking to pumpkins, jack-o-lanterns, and black cats.

Signature Look - Project Run & Play

It's the end of yet another season of Project Run & Play and though I cut it close this week, I've managed to sew-a-long with each theme.  It's always fun seeing what everyone in the sew-a-long creates each week.
