✨✏Design, Vision, and Birthdays: How I Brought Her Sketches To Life!🦄🎻

✨✏Design, Vision, and Birthdays: How I Brought Her Sketches To Life!🦄🎻

What if there was a way to immortalize your child's drawings? How would you do it? For me, it was a labor of love... x 2.

We stumbled upon the conversation of what her birthday outfit should look like. I told her she could help design it (since I am a part of an affiliate program with My Fabric Designs). Well, this little puppy girl of mine came up with the idea of animals playing instruments! How fun!

🎸⚡The BEST EVER Mini Ziggy Stardust You'll Ever See!⚡🕷

WHAM BAM THANK YOU MA'ME!

I've made a lot of super fun, ultra rad, kickass stuff in my sewing lifetime... but thisTHIS, is at the top of the list for me!!! Nothing could inspire me more to put on a good show than the starman himself, David Bowie.  Yesterday marked the first anniversary of his death and so I have been planning a grandiose ZIGGY STARDUST homage for the past year! My muse is one of the biggest little Bowie fans out there so I made a commitment to myself and to her to make her a capsule wardrobe of iconic Bowie outfits!

KCW TOYS: TANGRAM DRESSES! Spring 16' Part 1 of 2

KCW TOYS: TANGRAM DRESSES! Spring 16' Part 1 of 2

We go all out for Christmas Eve. I make special dresses for the girls and then pajamas for everyone for Christmas Day! This year the theme was tangrams. I custom designed fabric through Spoonflower and used the Madelyn pattern by Violette Fields Threads as a base for the dress bodice. I used Kona cottons for all of the skirts and collars which I paper pieced and drafted myself. While it was quite a long process to plan out, I couldn't have asked for better results! I figured now would be a good time to share them because it's just in time for the Kids Clothes Week Challenge this Spring: TOYS edition!

Azy's Song of the Sea Birthday Dress

Azy's Song of the Sea Birthday Dress

Are you all familiar with the Secret of Kells?  It's Irish animation illustrated by Tomme Moore and it's truly beautiful.  The character and scenery drawings are so vivid yet sooth your imagination as the scenes seem to look like a story in motion.  The textures, the character arcs, the story lines are all so captivating and absolutely inspiring.  The most recent film released was called Song of the Sea and is about a little boy and girl and the struggles they go through as they are come to grips with living without a mother, sibling animosity and the realization of Saoirse's very special power of turning into a magical seal, a selkie, when she dons her mothers cape.

Azriella was mesmerized... enchanted, even.  I found a local fabric store that sells tons of variations of organza, so I sought out duo-toned hues that reminded me of the ocean images from the film.
