The Cowl Neck Pullover

mammacandoit

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

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...

Recently I was asked to design a reversible baby romper for baby boys. Cute baby boy clothes are hard to find patterns for, so I decided that I was up for the challenge. Elijah is still leary of modeling for me, but I did snap a few adorable pictures of this process so I hope you enjoy it!

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...

Sewing to avoid Human Suffering

mammacandoit
I've been struggling with conviction over the things that I buy. Almost everything that we purchase in the USA originates in another country. Just because it's in another country, doesn't necessarily mean it's been in the hands of a slave or person undergoing unfair treatment (Definition: A person or child who is forced to work and/or paid less than what is required by government regulations in...

Reversible Jumper Pattern for Big Girls

Elizabeth Singler
Everyone has a baby jumper pattern out there....but what about a big girl jumper pattern? Any kid that is over the age of 4 doesn't have homemade clothes anymore?
That kind of makes me laugh a little because when babies are small, the only time that you can sew is at nap-time. However, when a toddler becomes more of a kid, nap times becomes a thing of the past. Yet, the kids are more able to take...
