CraftingCon: House of Estrela

Magda is awesome! I’ve had the great pleasure to participate in her Refashion Month series. And when I posted a random list of facts about myself she wanted to get in on the fun and came up with a great list, which you should definitely check out and get to know her a bit more! I’m so happy to have her here today! Oh, and she has this darling free blazer pattern available on her blog, which I...

CraftingCon: Shaffer Sisters

I’m sure I’m not the only one who would love to know some of my favorite bloggers in person. Well it just so happens that I actually do know Al. She and my hubby were best buds in high school. But, I decided to be nice and not find an embarrassing yearbook picture to share with you all. Scroll down to the end for the giveaway and link party. And if you haven’t yet, head over to Friends Stitched...

CraftingCon: Marvel Superhero Raincoat

A little disclaimer for this post: I didn’t sew this! I participated in a really fun clothing swap about a month ago and am just now getting around to sharing. Naturally, I had to wait for it to rain. *also, affiliate links* Sadly, we are coming to the end of Avenger’s month. I hope you have all linked up your superhero looks, because it closes today! There are some cute ones in the linky party already!...

CraftingCon: Thread Riding Hood

Sherri is my new favorite blogger. She emailed me to let me know about some typos she had found when reading through her entry one last time, and that made the English geek in me super happy. I didn’t read Sherri’s blog before Amy suggested we invite her to participate in CraftingCon, but it’s now one of my favorites. Sherri has a ton of great tutorials. I really love this one for adding a little...

CraftingCon: Once Upon a Sewing Machine

CraftingCon Avengers week three! I can’t believe how fast this month is flying by. Do you love peasant dresses? Then you will love Once Upon a Sewing Machine. Donna and Rachel are a cute as can be mother/daughter sewing duo. They offer several free patterns, including a peasant dress pattern and lots of fun ideas to change it up! The cutie in today’s post may love Iron Man, but she’s also a...

CraftingCon: Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy Crafts

 I’m really having fun with the Avengers theme this month! We went to the drive in as a family this past weekend and saw Guardians of the Galaxy. Well, sort of. It was the second movie, and we had the trunk piled high in blankets and pillows… so… yeah, I fell asleep. Lol. Amy doesn’t fall asleep during superhero movies, so why not stop by her blog to see what Teri from Climbing the Willow...

CraftingCon: Captain America Freezer Paper Stencil Tutorial

*this tutorial originally appeared on Gracious Threads as part of her Embellish for Boys series* Even though I’ve only seen Captain America once, I love to make things with the Captain America logo for my boys. They were inspired by this tutorial.               I super duper love freezer paper stenciling. Not only is there a wide scope for the imagination, but it’s so...

CraftingCon: Captain America Jammies

I have a confession: I haven’t really ever watched The Avengers. I know you all just gasped in horror. I have tried and tried. For some reason I just have a hard time staying interested during superhero movies. It took me probably 15 attempts to make it through Batman Begins and stay awake the whole time. That being admitted, I do love superhero fashion! And I especially love what being a superhero does to a...
