Year of the American Girl Giveaway


While browsing Google Plus (which by the way, completely confuses me, but seems fun) a few weeks ago I happened to run across a contributor request for a huge giveaway.  I guess it intrigued me because I entered even though I did not have an American Girl doll nor have I ever made American Girl Doll clothing. My thoughts were that it would be pretty easy.  The clothes are so tiny I thought I could sew the dress up pretty quick.  Well I was kinda wrong because I think the tiny dress took just as long as a big girl dress but it was pretty fun : ), and I will certainly be making more!

The giveaway is really kinda amazing and really kinda huge!  The lucky winner will receive an 18"doll outfit for every occasion that happens within a year.  My entry of course is

Lily Giggle is Back On

I am an affiliate of Lilly Giggle, this post does contain affiliate links to their shop : )

OMGosh!!!Can you believe this fantastic news!  Yes I know I can be a little silly but I am genuinely very excited about the return of Lily Giggle Sewing patterns.  I became a big fan many years ago when I first saw the Zinna Dress in a photo on Brownie Goose's Blog (by the way she is another fabulous designer).  I purchased the pattern immediatly and I actually did sew it up immediatly!  I than began purchasing more and more of the patterns.  When I heard the news LilyGiggle would be closing shop I was genuinely sad, sad like when Guns n' Roses split up  and. But hey they are back.  Not the original GNR, but Lily Giggle!  And they are not just back but back with a vengeance.  Meaning she has a bunch of new patterns and some revamped old patterns.  Anyways, If I would have just started with the photos than I would have had you with that : )

Lets start with the skirt!
Warning...My skirt was at testing stage.  There were a

Hip Hop Harem Pants


Here I am again with another pattern test.  Testing seems to be the only thing I blog about lately, but to be honest testing is the only sewing I have been doing.  I love to test new patterns.  The deadline keeps me on task, making new friends around the world, and the designers are always so nice (Lydia the designer at Kiwis Closest was sooo nice) !  But I think the reason I love testing the most is that you get to see all of these wonderful takes on one pattern.   Today I think I will share ONE of my take : ) Hehe I have another I plan to share later.


I used interlock knit for Mila's harem pants.  I had won the fabric on Facebook from Banberry Place I think

From mom's old clothes to babys new clothes

 Pre-pregnancy I was three sizes smaller.  I always gain tons of weight with each baby, but I had always lost it after baby, and lost it quick!  Baby 4...no such luck.  I am almost one year out and I may have actually gained a few pounds.  It's a little depressing but the baby is so worth it : ).   My closet is now filled to the roof with my pre-pregnancy clothes and my new and larger after pregnancy clothes.  I decided to clean it out a bit.  I still have hopes to fit in those clothes some day, so I did not get rid of it all.  A few items I really did not like were packed for the thrift shop.  Luckily I am not the quickest at dropping my stuff off because the bag full of clothes has been sitting in another closet for about a month.  I say luckily because Project Run and Play week 3 just happens to be repurposing week.  I dug through the bag and found an old sweater and turtleneck tee shirt both from Old Navy.  They have both seen lots of use but the fabric was still in great shape.  I did take a picture of the sweater with my phone but for some not very smart reason I deleted it.  Luckly I had two sweaters.  The off white sweater was almost the same as this purple one.  Just off white and the collar was
