Creating a Little Fashion Dream: 🌈Rainbows, Unicorns🦄 + BOWIE⚡!

Creating a Little Fashion Dream: 🌈Rainbows, Unicorns🦄 + BOWIE⚡!

It doesn't seem that long ago that I made a rainbow inspired 5th birthday outfit, and, as irony would have it, I have done it yet again! That was the challenge: how to make an equally beautiful rainbow-inspired outfit without being repetitive. These girls are so unique; they truly have their own styles and personalities! Sephira is a free spirit that is candid with pretty much everything! I tried hard to tie in all the things she wanted (she frequently wants to be at least seven different things all at once) and keep it cohesive.

KCW Spring 2016 Part 2: Sleepin With Deh Fishies

KCW Spring 2016 Part 2: Sleepin With Deh Fishies

It's literally has been yeeears since I planned to make, on time, and post, on time, for Kids Clothes Week!  I am making this year my most creative yet because I had a bit of a misstep motivation wise last year, so LOOK OUT!  I am planning some big changes so I am feeling all this drive and fire to just GO BIG!My plan came together as soon as I heard the KCW theme was TOYS.  I went straight away to drafting out lil buddies to stitch into their outfits (because if I don't, they'll just lose em'!) so they can play with them whenever they wear them!  I love making things with little surprises!

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!

30 days of Shirley Temple! Modern Romper for the Kawaii Kid

30 days of Shirley Temple! Modern Romper for the Kawaii Kid

So I love classic looks with a wacky modern twist. That's my thing, that's my go-to combo.  So, for me, I had to think of a way to make this idea of Shirley Temple work with my personal aesthetic in which wouldn't involve 100+ yards of gathering fabric for a pettiskirt.  I mean, I love the look of them on my kiddos but the time intensiveness of making one at the moment was a bit overwhelming!  I thought then about what other things I love on pics of child fashion from yesteryear that you don't see so every day.  And I love Korean kids fashion.  I mean, I'm a bit obsessed.

Handmade Octonauts Inspired Easter 2015!

Handmade Octonauts Inspired Easter 2015!

I don't know about your kidlings, but as of recent, mine have become quite taken with Octonauts!  The show is basically kawaii aquatic adventurers who go around saving the sea creatures that fall into peril around them!  Of them, Azriella quickly requested to be Tweak the Bunny and shortly afterward Sephira chimed in that she wanted to be the "pink Vegimal" which she later learned was named "Codish".  I decided that since Azriella was a bunny, that the little carrot Vegimal, named "Barrot" would be perfect for her!

My Panda Pi. Akira's First Birthday Outfit!

My Panda Pi.  Akira's First Birthday Outfit!

Guess who JUST turned 1?!  I mean, I can hardly believe it myself!  As hard as I tried to keep her my tiny baby forever (I mean how much coffee and junk food to you need to feed a baby to keep her small?  TOTALLY KIDDING, OF COURSE!!!), she just keeps growing and growing!  Sheesh!  The weird thing is she doesn't seem to change physically at all!  I mean, sure she gets taller but her face looks the same as it did when she was six months old!  And man, oh, man do I love that face!
