I’ve made a few gifts recently.
1) I used this free pattern and tutorial to make a cute knit racerback dress in size 12-18 months. I just love racerbacks. I think Finley should have one.

1) Heat transfer vinyl. Um, pretty cool, right? It comes on a roll in all [...]
I made Fe a dress and Nash a matching tie for Easter this year. This is their first matching brother and sister outfit and I super love it. I followed this tutorial to make the tie for Nash and just made things up as I went for Finley’s dress.
