This Sunday a sweet baby boy became a child of the covenant.

This is the blanket I made in celebration.

I wanted the blanket to be soft, but manly. So I selected a blue plaid flannel to go with the blue minky.

I hope it keeps him warm for years to come!

As mentioned earlier, I sewed my first skirt this fall using Simplicity pattern 2451D.

There were a few imperfections around the zipper, with the top of the zipper being misaligned and the bottom stitches not meeting the zipper. That error was not discovered until I wore the skirt to work. Hence the quick red stitches done in the bathroom!

All in all, a wonderful skirt to wear with fall foliage!

On December 13th, my favorite baby boy turned one! To celebrate, I sewed him pants!

This plaid pair was my favorite.

However, when he put the pants on and sat down, they bursted at the seams! Guess that pair was a little too tight.

His dad is quite talented with the Rubik’s Cube. So I sewed this wonky one out of felt.

Happy Birthday little man!

This fall I tried a real skirt pattern, I will show you that skirt later.

For now, check out a modified version of the skirt, pleated in the front with plaid pockets. (Sadly this skirt turned out a touch too short to wear outside of the house!)

I am pleasantly pleased with the red lining, which for some reason reminds me of Harry Potter.

No skirt would be complete without a coordinating belt for my boyfriend!

A tie and skirt to sparkle with Christmas cheer!

My boyfriend tried his hand at sewing a simple coaster.

Turns out, he’s awesome!

Manly flannel bibs for my favorite nine month old!

Some snap and some velcro. More would snap, but sewing on snaps is no quick task!

This plaid and navy is my favorite!

Enjoy, little man!

I am making something manly.
