Calvin Cargo Pants - Momma Quail Patterns

My friend Amy from Friends Stitched Together is having a pattern tour for her Momma Quail Patterns and I gladly joined in.  I love her aesthetic and attention to detail with the clothes she makes for her boys, so I knew her clothes patterns would be well designed and stylish.  It was hard to choose just one to make, but in the end Bean needs more pants so I chose the Calvin Cargo Pants.

Wear to Where - Coffee Shop

Guys!  I've been waiting what feels like forever to share with you this Wear to Where tour hosted by Wild+Wanderful and Gardening in High Heels!  It is such a fun and original idea and I'm honored to be a part of it.  The idea was to take several places or situations and then have sewing bloggers AND fashion/style bloggers post an outfit they would wear for the occasion.  It's a melding of worlds and so far the tour has been a lot of fun to "watch."

Festive Felties - One Thimble Issue 9

Issue 9 of One Thimble (*affiliate link) is out and packed with loads of goodies!  The theme is vintage circus and the patterns are adorable, but the first thing that caught my eye in this issue was a little Christmasy felt project by Molly and Mama so I grabbed my felt and jumped right in.

Dia De Los Muertos - Sugar Skull Kitty Redux

How quickly is autumn slipping away?  It feels like it just started and yet Halloween is upon us!  Luckily the weather here should stay fall-like through most of November so I still have time to enjoy my favorite season.  There are so many fun holidays ahead and one that we didn't celebrate growing up, but has become something I really look forward to is Dia De Los Muertos or the Day of the Dead.  November 1st is set aside to honor and remember with celebration those who have passed. Melissa from Rebel & Malice is hosting another Dia De Los Muertos tour and I'm happy to participate again this year.

Pencil Skirts All Around

Jocole is having a Fall Blog Tour, and I thought it'd be fun to use both the Ladies and Girl's Knit Pencil Skirt patterns to make Bean and I a few simple skirts for fall.
