Made by a Fabricista: Holiday Onsies


One of my favorite past times is lounging around at home watching movies with my not-so little ones. We snuggle up on one couch, each with our own blanket and invade each others personal space lol.  I planned on making onesies for the family around this time of year because I enjoy them more than any adult probably should.  

This was a quick and easy project.  The fabrics used are 100% Polyester and can be found (HERE) and (HERE).  Fabric Mart has a HUGE selection of fleeces available, check them all out (HERE).  

Fleece literally feels like snuggly happiness.  Other than the shedding produced by cutting out the pattern, you don't have much else to worry about as it relates to the wear and tear of the fabric.  My daughter still has a fleece dora blanket from when she was 3 (she is now 12) and it still looks and feels brand new. 

I used a YT video for a quick pattern that can be found (HERE).  Honestly, there are tons.  I just picked the first one that had an image that worked for me, watched it once while on the way home, and did the rest on my own.  There are tutorials that are much more detailed and even includes hoods and characters, but I wanted to keep this first try simple and fast.  While I left the arms loose to keep irritation down, I put elastic in the legs to prevent them for walking on the suits. 


So what about me right? I mean, this was MY idea and I am the one that enjoys them so much!  I ran out of fabric, but am already set to order more so I can be part of cool kids squad lol.






Apparently they liked them and unlike I stated when I started, it wasn't too warm for them to sleep in them (which they did).

Now I just need to make one for myself....

Until Next time...

Made by a Fabricista: Brushed Wool/Cashmere Car Coat

  I've been eyeing the Michael Kors Wool Blend Coatings for some time now.  Fabric Mart had the most gorgeous array of coating colors that I have ever seen!  During COVID stay at home time, I've been letting my gray grow out, and I thought that even though those gorgeous sherbet shades like apricot and apple green would be beautiful, the heathered gray shade would be the most flattering to my gray hair and the most versatile.  Apparently, others thought the same, as the gray is sold out now, but there are still many colors available here:  Coating Category   When I received my fabric, I was just astonished at how soft it was and what a beautiful drape it had.  I searched and searched for the perfect pattern- changing my mind at least a dozen times before I settled on Simplicity 3672.   This is one of the few patterns that only was available in sizes 18-24, and not in smaller sizes.  It is about 10 years old, but there are definitely copies available on the internet.

Made by a Fabricista: PJs for all the girls

With snow in my Colorado future, I've had pjs on the brain.  I don't know what it is about cold weather and pajamas, but whenever the first snow hits, I want to sew all of the cozy things! With that in mind, I decided to delve into Fabric Mart's double brushed poly knits.  I've discovered double brushed poly recently and I love it for it's softness and the layering possibilities.  While my favorite base layer material are merino wools), double brushed poly has done a pretty awesome job providing warmth without a lot of bulk.  Layering is life in Colorado! Specifically, I went after a nice collection of knits to make pjs for my Mom, my daughter and me.  For my mom, this copper floral stripe double brushed poly , for me, another blue floral double brushed poly (sold out) and a steel blue sweater knit to make a cozy cardigan to top off my set of pajamas.  For my daughter I chose a fun cotton/lycra print (sold out, but there's t his cotton/lycra stripe that would
