I'd like to take a few minutes to showcase our new Girl Size Adalynn Dress pattern. All of these pictures were taken from our fantastic tester team, and they really did their part in helping to make this design the best that it can be.
This post is very picture heavy, but worth it! We needed another place that we could look at more of the creative shots taken of the Adalynn Dress and the little...

My Onesie Pattern got a face lift

mammacandoit
It doesn't take long to know that I have had a few babies. And after having so many, I have come to know what I like and what I don't like in regards to clothing. Onesies are a main staple for me. My babies live in them. Whether it is for extra warmth in the winter, or a quick outfit in the summer, I need to have a onesie on my baby.
I don't think that I'm alone in this regard. When I first...

Ruffles ruffles ruffles | Rosie's Ruffled Legging pattern

Rosie's Ruffled Leggings. Can a sewing pattern designer have a favorite design? Well, let me answer that question by a bit of history trivia.
Did you know that Charles Dickens, one of the most prominent authors of all time, had a favorite book? It was 'David Copperfield'. Charles said that he favored the book so much because it most resembled his own life, and it was a pleasure to write it/read...

It's getting really cold here in Michigan. And we happen to live in the snowbelt, so it's even colder than normal michigan temperatures. My littles have a plethora of summer clothes in their drawers still, but I needed to get something a bit warmer, for fall and winter wearing.
That's when the Cowl Neck Pullover Pattern was created!


The most exciting thing about this pattern is that it was my first...

free bib pattern

Lets face it, keeping baby faces clean is a full time job. Keeping their clothes clean doesn't have to be though. OK, maybe that's not true, cleaning baby clothes is definitely a full time job; but keeping drool and food off of them can be a bit easier. That's where bibs come in.
Baby bibs are really a necessity when it comes to making supplies for our little ones. They can be pretty expensive to...

Maternity Shirt Pattern | Ruched Sides

mammacandoit1 comment
Since the knowledge of my current pregnancy, I've been looking for and haven't been able to find many maternity shirt patterns. Much less ones that don't look 'tentish'. Lucky for me, I love to design! So I created a fantastic ruched maternity shirt pattern.
When I started this design, I knew that I wanted the ruching to only be in the front. I don't want every angle of me to look pregnant, and...

Two Size AIO Diaper system

mammacandoit
Recently I was asked to make a new diaper design. Diapers are always my favorite patterns to work on, so I eagerly took the opportunity!
My client wanted an AIO cloth diaper. That's "all in one" if you don't know. All in one simply means that you can literally take it out of the washing machine and put it on your baby. Nothing to remove, nothing to add, nothing to pin or snappy. An AIO is literally...
