Grands Room


Wilderness themed room



During the remodel, hubby and I decided to make one of our bedrooms a room for the little guys(aka grands).  With four daughters, we are thinking we will have several grands and thought bunk beds would be a good way to sleep several.

Christmas Pajamas


Last year I decided to start a new tradition, Christmas Pajamas for the grands.  Right now there are grandsons so the youngest two - ages 1 and 3 are getting these cute Santa on a horse.  The fabric came from Fabric Fairy

This exact fabric looks sold out but they have some other cute prints.  The pattern came from
 Kwik Sew Sewing For Toddlers.  When I started this tradition last year, I included a book with the pajamas.  I am going with one of my daughters' favorite authors, Jan Brett.  The loved the story and the illustrations.  This year it is The Hat


One of our girls is engaged to a nice young man and he has an 8 year old boy.  I made him a pair of flannel pj pants from Kwik Sew Sewing for Children and the flannel is from Joann's



That makes all my Christmas sewing complete!

Rayon-Silk Bomber - McCall's 7100


Mood Fabrics' Rayon Silk Velvet bomber jacket using McCall's 7100




   I love the look of a bomber jacket and started thinking about fabric and something for the holidays.  My thoughts lead to the hot fabric right now, velvet and I headed right over to Pinterest for ideas.  I was on track as I saw several velvet bomber jackets and I knew I had my Christmas look.  My fabric is Mood Fabrics Sultan Red Soft Rayon-Silk Velvet, which is available in 7 more colors.

Dropje Vest



Dropje Pattern available at Indiesew made with Mood Fabrics wool and plaid flannel for the lining, quilting the two fabrics.

The Dropje Hooded Vest from IndieSew is a "I just love this so much" pattern.  Then a concurring thought is why did it take me so long to make?
