A few things to make this Summer!

First we found a house! I am so excited!!! It is a 3 bedroom (possible room to add a fourth) and it has 2 living rooms!!! I am super excited by that since our current living room is quite tiny. I don't have pictures yet but hopefully soon, we still have to go through some paper work so I guess there is a chance we won't get it but we in contract and its at the title company so we're close (crossing fingers)!

A few things to make this summer:


I am loving this simply adorable gift idea on make and love it! How cute to add on a onesie and the carseat toy actually looks like something I might make, lol!





You guys I'm dying over this adorably cute outfit on Project run and play! I love their series especially for cute boy ideas but all their kids clothes are usually so cute! Plus I get to vote on my favorite so that' fun ;0)



These dinosaur stuffed toys are pretty fun looking and its perfect Summer activity for kids who may be bored or tired from all the outdoor play in the sunshine!





This Bomber Jacket is a free pattern for a size 2T jacket (with the option of buying up to size 12), I think with a boy or gender neutral fabric it would be cute for boys or girls!




Shorts are simply needed in the summer and these cute baby ones are pretty easy to make and has a free pattern so be sure to check them out!





Need some shorts for a bigger kid? these are a free pattern sizes 18 months to 4T and just what your kiddo needs to lounge in or play!




Summertime and messy projects seem to go hand in hand at our house and this Art Smock will keep your kids covered! I love how easy it looks to make but how professional the finished product is! Go here for the free pattern!


Be sure to follow me on Pinterest for more cute stuff!

Teal pants for the win!

 Parker is 2 and finally growing! His doctor told me "Hes going to be short, sorry there is no other way to put it." I figured he might be since he was my smallest and is still the smallest in his Church nursery class. Now though he has grown a good inch maybe 2 and his pants are all too short.

 I used Dana's Kid Pants pattern again with my modifications except this time I only used 1/4" seam allowance to make them a bit bigger and used the right size elastic, oops! I didn't realize before she used 1/2" instead of 1' and it does make a HUGE difference!

 I haven't been sewing as much lately and I miss it. But on the other hand its also been kind of nice to take a break and see that my interests and life has evolved a lot since starting this blog! I'm still here and I will keep posting but I may pop in and out more sporadically than before (who am I kidding? I've always been that way, haha!)
 
Homeschooling has been going great but we are ready for a Summer break. Plus we may be looking for a house soon and I am SO excited but also very scared of change! I LOVE our yard here but we are renting from my mom and really want a place of our own. I'll definitely keep you posted!

6 Free patterns for boys!

My boys and I have been taking a lot more breaks in schooling, life, housework, sewing and everything to do anything away from being inside! We have been getting cabin fever and its almost summer which means we feel done homeschooling but we have a few more things to finish up before that can happen so I thought I would pop in and share a few new free patterns I have collected!


Some patterns listed will need a size chart to help with sizing. Go to my Free patterns for boys page to easily find the size charts I use.

This is the Baby Harvey Tee, isn't it so cute?! It comes in sizes 0-3 months and looks perfect for summer!



This romper is the cutest! It is so hard to find a boy romper and this one looks perfect! Its size 0-6 months, Check it out here!

These Rocker joggers are simply awesome! They come in sizes newborn to 6x and are very professional looking pants or shorts! The pattern is free but it will take you to a shopping basket page and ask you to put in a price, the blog says that no pay is necessary but if you wanted follow them by email or facebook that would be appreciated, it looks like they have quite a few great free patterns so it would be worth it!  

I hope your spring is going well and we'll see you soon!
