Adult Moccasin Pre Sale


So I love these moccasins! I can't stop making them and have quite the collection!


I have ordered two sheets of rubber soling for the moccasins, and I thought it would be fun to have a special pre-sale offer while we wait for the soles to arrive. That way I can make up the moccasins while I wait for the soles to be delivered and then attach the soles to the moccasins and send them off to be enjoyed by other lovely people, AND offer the moccasins at a great price! Deep breath!

These will be available for the special pre-sale price of $95 on the first 6 pairs ordered. After that the moccasins will be available for $120. So if you are looking for a great pair of handmade leather moccasins, at a great price, quickly head over to my shop and order a pair!

Where has the time gone?!

Wow! I didn't realize how long it had been since my last post! So what have I been up to? Lots. That's the best I can do to sum up the last 10 months. Lots!

Life with three growing boys is busy, it is now summer and we are spending lots of time outdoors in nature, at the beach, riding bikes etc…

I have begun a new craft that I have been wanting to learn for FOREVER and I am so excited to share it with you.

Moccasins!!!






This purple pair (that looks blue in the photos) I made from a leather jacket, because I am all about upcycling/recycling


Just after I decided to start making moccasins, a friend of mine, who is moving across the country, decided to give me two HUGE bags of leather!! 


Then a couple of days ago my sister in law found some olive green leather pants at a garage sale and picked them up for me. It's in the stars! I am meant to make moccasins. Also, I really love making them. I love that I can work on them anywhere. The black pair I made while I was watching my kids play at the park. 

I am just searching for soles, and then I will have these lovely mocc's available in my shop as made to order.

Hope all of you are enjoying your summer! Best of wishes to you :)

KCWC Day 2 Fall 2013

And this is why I have nothing for day 2! No she is not mine! I am taking care of her while her mom is at school. It has been exhausting, and by the end of the day I want to fall into my bed and sleep for two weeks straight.

As well as the baby (who just turned three months), I am also doing a 30 day fitness challenge. I work out everyday normally, so I didn't think it would be a big deal, except I have to wake up super early to get it in before the baby arrives. 

Not that I am not loving having a baby in the house, because I do! Especially a girl. Or that I am not loving my challenge, because I feel so much stronger. I just feel like I have no energy left at the end of the day to sew:( Oh did I mention the baby never naps! Maybe short stints while in my arms, but otherwise, NEVER! So sewing during the day is not an option. She is the sweetest, despite never sleeping, and spending 6-8 hours crying. We just love her. The boys are so loving with her.


Anyways, I thought for today I would share a few of my plans for KCWC. The stripy suit material and the electric blue cord I was telling you about yesterday are going to become W Pants.



And these I want to make into some fun PJ pants!


Well, the baby is here, so I have to go! Have a great day!

PS Blogger is giving my a hard time today, which is why everything is a bit wonky.

KCWC Day 1 Fall 2013

Day 1 of KCWC is here and I actually completed one piece! Yay! I really didn't think I would. It may be the only thing I make this week, because I just don't have time, or energy to sew these days. I will share more on that later.

Here is what I made:

Jasper is in need of hoodies. He has grown out of the Urban Hoodie I made him last year, so I made a new one. This one is also from a thrifted t-shirt. It isn't often I find XXXL t-shirts at the thrift shop that are awesome! So this was a total score.

Jude decided he wanted to be in the pictures, which is not common. They are so sweet!

This is a size 7. It fits perfectly.


We picked this skeleton up at the dollar store yesterday (why exactly is it called a dollar store when almost nothing is a dollar?) and Jude insists on bringing it everywhere with us.

A new hoodie just in time for the cool weather. 

The boys found some cute mushrooms on our morning walk. I have never seen these ones before. 

I had big plans for KCWC, such as new zip up hoodies for the boys, as well as pants, vests and PJ's. You should see the amazing blue cord I found at the thrift shop! It's electric blue. I hope to make it in to cords for Jude at some point. This week may not work out though.

Have a great week!

Rope Swing

This rope swing is the best! We made a special trip just to swing on it this weekend.





We really lucked out with the weather! What an amazing Thanksgiving Day. I am grateful for all the love I have in my life.

KCWC Ideas

Another season of KCWC is just around the corner (Oct 21-27 to be exact), and it is time to start planning! I have skipped the last two, with the excuse of being too busy, but the real reason is I have been to lazy, uninspired and unmotivated, but I am determined to make my kids some clothes this time round. They have grown and are in desperate need of new clothing!

Now is a great time to pick up some patterns during the Sew Fab Sale. 26 patterns for $29.95.

With being so "busy" I have not had time to whip up any of these patterns to show you how wonderful they are, so I have borrowed from other talented mamas to show you what a fab deal you will get!

Fancy Pants Leggings by Titchy Threads, Sewn by Carla


Green Point Cardigan by Hey June, you and mie


The Skinny Jean by Peek-a-boo, Mama Says Sew

Just a few of the great patterns you will get when you purchase your bundle.

Will you be taking part in the Fall KCWC? What are your plans?

Welcome to the Fall and Winter 2013

Over the past several weeks a lot of behind the scenes planning has taken place to bring you this newest bundle of ePatterns from many of the top established and up and coming online sewing pattern designers.  The result is a bundle of 26 PDF sewing patterns that you're going to love! For one week only, twenty-six pattern designers have come together to bring you 26 of their best PDF patterns, valued together at well over $2oo.oofor the incredible price of $29.95!!!  That’s over 80% off of the combined retail value!  Plus you can enter to win a dream of a giveaway with several prize packages from some of your favorite online fabric shops!

If you’ve never sewn with a PDF pattern before, let me tell you how great it is!  After downloading your pattern instructions and your pattern, you will print out the pattern itself, creating pattern tiles, if you will.  Simply tape the tiles together to create the full pattern!  At that point you can cut out the size that you need and pin the paper pattern directly to your fabric, or you can trace the pattern size that you need onto sewing paper or tracing paper and cut it out, saving the paper pattern for later when you need to sew another size.  Pdf patterns are so convenient because you can print them out as many times as you need!
