Kiddo Leggings DIY for fun Riley Blake Knits!

I just found this super cute and Super Simple Leggings DIY for little one's on the MakeIt-LoveIt website! They do require a pair of ready-made leggings that fit your child already but you can find those for a few dollars at Target if you don't already have one and then you've got a pattern to make as many as you want! The rest of the tutorial is easy as cake and you only use 2 fabric pieces (click here for the full tutorial)!
 I think these would be SEW ADORABLE in some of our fun new Knit Fabrics from the cool kids over at Riley Blake Designs!
Happy Flappers Owl Cream - Knit
I AM IN LOVE with these Happy Flappers! Pretty much the cutest owl print I've seen in awhile and it's in a knit?? How did we get so lucky!! This would make some awesomely funky leggings to pair with colorful sweaters and cool boots this Fall & Winter!
Oh Boy Elephants Orange - Knit     Oh Boy Elephants Gray - Knit
These Elephant prints are pretty much perfect! Boys and girls will love these little creatures marching up their legs! Make a simple shirt with the same knit for a matching pair of comfy pj's!
Knit Small Dots Gray
This sweet ray dot knit would look super cute under any dress or skirt to keep your little one's legs warm! Polka dots are the perfect way to get a little interest without things getting too out there! I think I might even want some leggings out of this one! That tutorial is totally adaptable for adults, right? I've got a pair of worn leggings lying around somewhere...
Knit Solid Black     Knit Solid Navy
AND if you're just wanting to create the ever-so-versatile pair of plain black (or navy) leggings, we've got the knits for that! Maybe after playing with this comfy fabric you'll be inspired to create 10 Minute Maxi Skirt for yourself?!
No matter what you want to make out of these comfy Knits, we just know you'll get addicted to sewing with them! There are a lot of tips and tricks out there for sewing with knit if you've never tried your hand at it before! Just do a quick search and add another type of fabric to your sewing repertoire!
Happy Sewing!!

Last Minute Costume Ideas!!

Halloween is just a few days away! And if you're as busy as I am, you may or may not have completed any handmade costumes like you were planning. Don't worry, life happens!
But what's great is there are so many easy, cute and resourceful DIY project ideas out there, that even if you wait until Thursday night, you'll be able to create something adorable!
Like this simple Woodland Gnome costume found on the Cakies blog!
All you need is about a yard of blue fabric for the shirt, maybe 1/4 yard of black fabric for the belt and you could even use layers of white muslin cut in shreds for the beard!! In the tutorial, they paint their hat, but you could just as easily wrap it in red fabric with some spray adhesive! No dry time is a good thing! Then finish off the look by grabbing (OR MAKING IF YOU'RE FEELING INSPIRED) some brown pants or leggings and some cute little moccasins or boots! SEW EASY!
We have some more fun and fast Handmade Halloween Costume ideas on the blog!
Happy Sewing!!
