Free Pattern Friday: Baby Groot Amigurumi

This little Groot was a fun project!  Amy asked if I would make him to go along with her Guardians of the Galaxy Cosplay outfits. The pattern is from Twinkie Chan, and she puts her Groot into a little pot so he can sit on a desk. You can check out the pattern here. Groot is made up of a lot of little pieces, so there was hand sewing involved, but it was so worth it.  His arms have pipe cleaners in them so he can be...

Free Pattern Friday: Ribbed Beanie

There’s still so much winter left this year.  Making a new winter accessory can help brighten your day!  Today I’m sharing the Ribbed Beanie I made for The Badenator.   Quick sews are always great, and bonus– this one is free.   If you’re not using a ribbed material for the band, you will want to make sure your fabric has enough stretch.  This beanie is a tad snug.  Which is a good...

Free Pattern Friday: Capote Pattern

Today’s pattern is something a little different.   Have you ever heard of a capote?  Not Truman, the author.  Capote, the coat. (They’re pronounced differently.)  These coats were made and worn by American Indians and Mountain Men.  They are traditionally made from wool blankets.  We cheated a little bit with this capote, and used a fleece blanket as a liner.  The Olive outer blanket is a wool...

Adam Beard: a free dress up beard pattern

I decided this pattern and tutorial needed its own post, so to kick off Free Pattern Friday this year, I’m reminding everyone about my free dress up pattern, the Adam Beard. You will need felt (I had an 8.5 x 11 sheet), and some elastic (I used 10 inches of 1/4″ elastic). Adam Beard PDF Template         The Badenator certainly loves his!    Loading InLinkz ...    ...

Free Pattern Friday: Crochet Monster Hat

*this post contains affiliate links, marked with an asterisk(*)* It’s been cooling off the last few days, and I’m starting to think about all the lovely things that come with fall weather.  One of those things is hats, and specifically for today I’m talking adorable beanies.  This Crochet Monster Hat that Karen made for The Badenator is one of my absolute favorite hats ever. She used the Lion...

Free Pattern Friday: Tiny Tumble Tee

 This Tiny Tumble Tee is one of the things waiting for #somedaywhenihaveagirl.  I’ve made several to give as baby gifts as well, and they are always a hit, with or without the bow.  I love that this pattern has drop sleeves instead of set-in sleeves.  That makes for only 4 seams and some hems, so these are a cinch! Have you made this? What did you think? I’d love to see yours, add it to the linky!  But...

Free Pattern Friday: All-Season Baby Throw

*this post contains affiliate links, marked with an asterisk(*)* I have a thing for blankets.  I love collecting them.  And this is one of my favorites.  I asked Karen if I could have it when Goose got too big for it and she said, “absolutely not! It’s like my favorite thing ever.” So I guess I’m going to have to make my own All-Season Baby Throw. Quick note about this pattern.  It’s...

Free Pattern Friday: Mary Jane Baby Shoes

Last week we had the infant peasant dress, and this week I’m sharing another pattern that only uses a little bit of fabric and makes a perfect baby gift. Aren’t these Mary Jane Baby Shoes just adorable?! I’ll admit, I’d never made baby shoes before and I was really worried about sewing something that tiny on my machine.  It really wasn’t hard!  In fact, the hardest part was the top...

Free Pattern Friday: Infant Peasant Dress

The Infant Peasant Dress from Sew Much Ado.  I love this pattern.  I’ve probably made more of these than anything else.  It’s sweet, it’s easy, it doesn’t take a lot of fabric or notions, and who doesn’t love a baby in a peasant dress? (really, if you don’t, please comment below because I literally do no believe such a person exists) I was lucky enough to guest post on Project...

Free Pattern Friday: Simply Summer Romper

  Today I’m sharing the Simply Summer Romper.  This is a fun, easy pattern from If Only They Would Nap.  Mine came together pretty nicely– ignore the little white threads in the collar, I forgot to do a thread check before taking pictures.   This romper sat in my works in progress pile for a really long time.  Why?  Because I didn’t want to put in snaps!  I have yet to acquire a KAM snap setup, so...
