Happy 14th birthday Jamie! At 14 you are growing into a young man that your dad and I are so proud of. You are dedicated, caring and sensitive and we love how you are always trying to make things better. You’ve become our family game night instigator; the one who says such lovely things that you bring all the adults around you to tears; the one we turn to for karate advice (seriously where do you store all of your knowledge? How can such a big brain fit in your head?); and our explorer. You still want to be a teacher, and are so dedicated to it, I’m sure you’ll do it. All this kid wanted this year was a coat the same as Newt Scamander’s from Fantastic Beasts. So many hours of work went into it, but I think I nailed it and the look on his face this morning said I did good 😉. @mineyzoroark @stutookphotos #happy14thbirthday#proudmum#newtscamandercosplay#mumsthatsew#imakeourclothes#slowsewing#cleoscottage

Crocheted beanies 🌿🌿🌿 I am improving and making less mistakes , becoming a bit faster. I made all three in 2 days. The top two were made with a great free tutorial over @makeanddocrew called the 1.5 hour beanie, which I would say is accurate for an adventurous beginner. And the bottom hat ( which reminds me of a beehive 🐝) was another step by step tutorial found on YouTube called The Valdiva crochet hat. So easy!! Hopefully I can venture off to knitting, but crochet is so fun! Pom Pom’s were made using pom Pom makers and left over fabric, I even got the kids involved. 🌿🌿yarn from JoAnn stores called Paton Roving in Classic Wool. The blush pink was a wool blend , I didn’t care as much for it! But highly recommended using Paton wool for an affordable starter yarn. Swipe to see a close up👀
WIP. The belt loops on these Lazo trousers are supposed to be topstitched in place. I want them secured in the waistband seam instead so I'm pulling out the seam ripper. I'm using the Tencel from @dgpatterns shop. My first time using tencel and it's pretty wonderful. . #wip#workinprogress#lazotrousers#fabricambassador#slowsewing
Bluse Sofia aus der @la_maison_victor Nr.5/2018 Ich mag den Schnitt. Beim Kopieren hab ich eine Konfektionsgröße kleiner gewählt, weil ich es nicht zu weit mag. Den Bund hab ich so zugeschnitten, das er 5 cm länger ist. Der Stoff ist dunkelblauer #viskosejersey mit #pünktchen#sofialmv#happysewing #
