Art Satchel

Korban’s Bug Notebook

I made a project I had been curious about trying a while now for my nephew Korban’s 4th birthday. The pattern and instructions are found in “Growing up Sew Liberated” it is the “Art Satchel.” 

This was a fun project and pretty simple. It features a fold up crayon roll and a pouch for markers or other tools and a pocket for a pad of paper. 

The hand stitching for a couple parts was time consuming but other than that it was pretty quick to make! I found some fun bug print fabric that made it a lot of fun! The only modifications I made to the pattern was adding a layer of cotton quilt batting in between the inside and outside fabric and the rectangular sheets of plexi glass, it seemed too flimsy without that given I did not use linen or canvas fabrics.

I would like to make one for the girls in the future, it would be a great thing to bring out to restaurants or to church to keep them busy and quiet!

My little helper wanted to model how to carry it :)

Basalt Tank

I am finally getting around to posting this awesome tank top I finished knitting!

This pattern was so much fun to knit! It is called the Basalt Tank and can be found in the book Knitting Nature.

It was an interesting pattern knit one hexagon at a time and then sewn together.  And this was my first time knitting with linen and I would definitely do it again, it made for such a light fresh finish that will be very wearable in the summer!

A Friday Soule Mama inspired ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

It has been a little too long since I last posted! A variety of things (super busy husband, computer being fixed and unfortunately wiped free of data, and a couple of colds) have kept me from writing but I intend to end the dry spell even if from my phone like today! Many projects in the works and a few finished to be shared when I manage to get photos. For now I will leave you with some recent fibers I have dyed for my hand spun yarns…

Around Juniper’s 1st birthday I made her an embroidery project with the letters of her name to hang on her wall. 

Now as Eden’s 1st birthday is approaching I am attempting to do something for her as well. 

I am still not sure exactly how it will come together yet, but I was inspired by these cross stitch fairies I found in a book…

I am starting to plan out (mostly in my head at this point) a gnome party for her.

It is likely to be out last kids birthday bash in Maine (near some family) for at least 5 years so I want to do it right.

More to come once I actually find the time to start it!
