Boys are hard to sew for. My youngest feels left out because he does not get nearly as many handmade goods from me as my daughter. I have finally found something he can actually use though. I used a Burda pattern for some hoodies for both sons (and yes my daughter..can't resist girly fabrics). This pattern sewed up like a dream. Straight forward and easy to understand. I was afraid of using knits but this pattern made it easy.

My latest project- Elastic free panties /dundies for my children. My daughter is sensitive to the elastic used in most store-bought undies so I decided to try my hand at making her some. She Loves them and I am very happy with the fit and comfort of the pattern. These homemade undies are sure to last a long time too, no more cheap thin fabric underwear for us. Now I want to make some for myself. They are so cute and fun with different fabrics. I also experimented with a tshirt that was going to be thrown out. It had a hole in the stomach area but such a cute dog print. So I upcycled it into a fun pair of underwear.

Continuing my getting organized kick-I have decided it is time to get my 3 binders of recipe clippings at least down to 2 binders. So of course, I need a pretty home for the recipes to better motivate me. I made a fabric binder cover a year ago to keep my calenders and to do lists in. I take it everywhere with me. I decided to make fabric covers for my recipe binders and add decorative Dividers. I also made a couple for some swaps while I was at it. Here are the swap binders.
