Roundup of Random Crap I Made and Forgot to Blog

Who doesn't love a catchy blog post title, amirite?

Anyway, there were a few things I made this past quarter that I didn't make time to blog about, so here's a quick compilation:

1. Elsa Costume. My child was one of the legion of kids dressed as Elsa this Hallowe'en. She was absolutely thrilled with the costume, and I was happy too.

2. Mugrug for my Boss.  Terrible cellphone photo but you can kind of see the subtle design I quilted on here. It's a large dandelion with floating seeds and it says "wish."

I was inspired by this mug she uses with a similar image that says "some see weeds, others see wishes."

3. Clothing for LĂ©onie, G's new doll:
I made a matching one for G

For the top and leggings, I used Rachael Imagine Gnats' wonderful free patterns (Eva pants and Chloe tee). If you plan to make these pants, I recommend assembling them slightly differently than the tutorial suggests - rather than sewing the inseams together first, start by sewing the front and back seams from waist to crotch. Then sew the leg seams together from ankle to ankle in one long seam. Much less fussy.

A couple of these makes were on my Q4 FAL goal list so big yay for that! 

I've got one more project to blog about plus my Q4 FAL roundup plus my Q1 2015 Finish Along goals. Stay tuned!


  1. Lovely crafty stuff! I've always made trousers (well pjs or dressing up trousers never made "real" trousers!) legs first then the 'rise' but I've seen a few suggestions recently to go the other way, I'll have to try it!

  2. Congrats on your finishes. Unlike Benta, I think I've always gone crotch first, then legs, but I haven't made many pairs of shorts and trousers, it might just have been the patterns I chose!


I *love* comments, and I try to respond to every one by email (but I can't if you're a no-reply blogger!). So go on, don't be shy - leave one to let me know you've stopped by!
