I have something super special to share today!!! Over the past month I've been working on the first ever, Sew Chibi Designs Lookbook!
kira! kira! kira! vol. 1
This sparkly, happy magazine features all of my handmade works over the past year including my favorites: Halloween, Christmas Eve, and Easter! I also made a couple of DIYs for making your own Ziggy Stardust cape (or any floor length, snap front cape), + a super easy fabric ukelele strap! I also created all of the graphics and drawings too!
I hope you like it!!! 🖤
It’s Halloweentime guys!
This is one of my very favorite times of year! Max and I decided a while back that it would be great to do a big free for all geek fest for this month's Sew Geeky. A chance for everyone to sew whatever they want that they love, and the creations by our guests so far have been awe inspiring, to say the least!
I told myself that I wouldn’t go over the top; that I want to keep Sew Geeky a little more casual so that I don’t burn myself out trying to outdo myself every month. It’s exhausting! It also makes me struggle to make other things; the essential things. BUT STUDIO GHIBLI?! I could not go small. I just couldn’t! Ugh, I am my own worst enemy, I know! Narrowing it down was incredibly hard. I have the urge to STUDIO GHIBLI ALL THE THINGS!
This is me.
In a nutshell, my whole life I've been a cartoon addict. No lie. I recorded my faves on VHS when I was a teenager and I have never really stopped watching them!
But as you get older you learn to appreciate new things and I fell, similar to Alice, down the rabbit hole, into the world of anime.
Although my personal preference for the Bimaa sweater is the cowl look because it looks so damn squishy and delicious, the looks I was going for for my Halloween outfits both required hoods! I present to you all, the Finn Bimaa and the Totoro Bimaa Sweater Dress!
We love all things anime and yes that includes Pokemon! Get ready for a sweet Girafarig inspired dress! YEAH! Earlier this month, someone turned 6! It has been a whirlwind of a month, what with birthdays x 2, visitors, sewing (per the usual), starting kindergarten, baby announcements, appointments galore... my head is still spinning! But don't worry: I'm passed my nausea-phase so I'll be fine 😁
