Mix n Match Dress Pattern

I love this dress.

Although if I made one in these bright colours, I'd never have the nerve to wear it.


Maybe blues and greens?

I'll have to keep an eye out for fabric that would go well with this pattern.

Biker Wrap Skirt Pattern


I'm really into wrap skirts, but I've never gotten around to making one.
So I'm on the hunt for some easy patterns to try for next Summer.

Not sure why this is called a 'biker' wrap skirt, but it's very cute, and I can't wait to try my hand at it.

Recycled denim baby bib

Recycled denim baby bib tutorial
Absolutely love this tutorial on how to make a recycled bib.
I have so many scraps of retro fabric lying around {from before they were retro} and my old jeans have just kicked the bucket.
Perfect combination!

Denim covered 3-Ring Folder

I absolutely adore this folder cover.
Wish I'd thought of something like this when I was in high school.

And I know there's not much sewing involved, but I love it, so I had to post it here. ;)
