I've been whipping up a bunch of fun triangle bags, they're so fun and super easy! Natalie wants to learn how, so we're gonna make a video tutorial. Subscribe the Pin Cut Sew YouTube channel so you don't miss it 🤓
Other moms are hogging the pool umbrellas (like, their stuff is using the umbrella, but their bodies aren't -- I know, first world problems 😂) so I am sitting in a small chair under the shade of one palm branch, like Jonah, reading this @miymag and it is so full of good ideas! But I probably won't make any because moving is such a time suck 🙈Does anyone else think the biggest inconvenience while moving is that everyone still needs to eat?? For realz.
I just uploaded our video tutorial on how to make emoji eye masks! Totally kid friendly sewing. Visit our YouTube channel, Pin Cut Sew or click the link in my bio for the blog post. Enjoy! #kelbymonster
I finished my second #blackwoodcardigan out of a rib knit from @girlCharlee 💕 I underestimated the fabric requirements and then got a hole when I had to remove the pocket (rib knit is not the easiest to sew, it turns out). Luckily, I had some purple rayon jersey that exactly matched the color (whaaat?!) and made some wider seam-to-seam pockets to cover the hole instead! Whew, I'm glad it worked out because it's really cozy, I love it.
A super old pattern from @mccallpatterncompany that I used to make all the time and decided to pull out again for this dreamy lightweight jersey. It's actually a pajama pattern, but I won't tell if you won't. 🙊I have a favorite method for applying neck binding to knits that I use pretty much every time and I think I'm going to film a tutorial for that soon, what do you think?? Pattern is M6848 and fabric is again from @girlcharlee 💕
These two make a good team. 👯 I have one daughter starting a DIY YouTube channel (details coming soon) and one daughter starting a photography blog (email@example.com). I'd like to think I inspire them just a bit. 😁In other news, we signed a contract on a Utah house today!! It's a great house that needs the perfect amount of updating, which is our favorite thing! We've been coming up with all sorts of great ideas for it, we're all so excited.
I made this rib knit tank last week by copying a tank from Old Navy (that shrunk to obliteration 🙄) and I just realized it will go perfectly with either of the new rib knits I just got from @girlcharlee to make two new Blackwood Cardigans! I know Summer is coming to the mainland, but I'm looking ahead to our first Fall in three years! In case you're wondering, we did not get the Utah house we bid on, and I totally cried, but it's ok, we have our eye on another one. Seriously trying not to imagine my furniture in there and what we could do with the kitchen, but it's super hard 😂😭Sewing makes a good distraction. Am I talking too much here lately?? Hahaha
I made a super amazing skirt last week. I should have taken a picture when I wore it the other day, but .... I didn't. We're trying to buy a house and I am so unable to focus on anything else, it's the worst!!! We have an offer in on one. I'm so bad at waiting. So bad. House buying is such an emotional roller coaster. In my head, I've already moved into this one, haha, so 🤞🏻How to distract myself?? @alinadesignco
We colored wooden eggs this year. It was very fun! We used the @handmademodern chalk markers and they are super cool.
The girls said goodbye to some very close friends today. Did you know that military kids say goodbye to more significant people by the age of 18 than most people do in a lifetime? But I guess the good part is that they have significant people scattered all over the world! Still, this is hard. 💕 @melissacancope @page_er
