It’s Kids Clothes Week Fall 2013!

Today I’d like to share some clothing I made the past few days for my son. I purchased the SewFab pdf sewing pattern bundle last month (the sale is closed now) and have been trying to make new fall/winter clothing out of the pattern bundle.

Fall t-shirts / undershirts done!



Hi friends,

Is the weather cooling down in your area? Here in the south we still have high 80+ to 90+ degrees almost everyday, but you know it could drop suddenly.  I start organizing my son’s closet recently and couldn’t find enough long-sleeve shirts from last year, therefore I stopped the projects in my hand and made some long-sleeve shirts for him.

The pattern I used is from Ottobre Design,  6/2012 issue. I like their patterns! Although I own two issues of Ottobre Design only, and maybe made only four or five designs out of their 40 designs per issue, the garments fit my son quite nicely (most of the time).  For this particular long-sleeve t-shirt, I only adjusted the sleeve seams a little bit.

Back to routine

Hi friends,

It’s been quite a while since last time I wrote something. Now I am finally back to my normal life. Kid is back at school earlier this month, and I got myself more “me time” to sew and create.


This is his new backpack. His old one is still nice and good, but just too small, not enough space to hold his nap towel/pillow, etc. So this time I made sure it’s big enough. The material is a nice waterproof nylon from my friend, I love the print! I don’t know what it is called, but she got it oversea. The lining is rip-stop nylon from my stash, it’s water repellent (not waterproof though). I also added red piping to the backpack front. The pattern needs a few more tweak though, but overall I like how it came out.

This summer a lot happened in my small world. My kid and I took a month-long trip across the country to see my parents, and also to overseas in two different countries for a family event and see my in-laws, relatives, and friends. It’s fun meeting relatives and friends after so many years (some of them I didn’t see more than five years!), and at the same time it’s super tiring. My husband joined us in the later part of our trip, and we made home safely after 15+ hours of international flights. Now the summer is over, I want to remember all the happy moments and leave behind all the sad parts.

Recently I focus more on creating items for my Etsy shop and also spend more time on machine embroidery. I will share more on upcoming posts.

Have a great day!

Western day outfit

My son’s school celebrated Western Day about two weeks ago and kids were encouraged to wear western outfits on that day for the school event. So I made him this look (shirt, scarf, and hat) 🙂

Spring closet- baseball henley shirt

The second item I want to make for my son’s spring clothing is 3/4 sleeve henley shirt.

I started with the basic raglan sleeve t-shirt pattern I have been using (I will share this some other day.), shortened the sleeve length by 1 inch, added the front placket. The rest is similar to making a raglan t-shirt.
