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: Peach Skin Penny Dress

Have you ever lost your sewjo, or just taken a long break from sewing after a really hard project? After spending months altering a wedding dress, I just needed a bit of a break from sewing. Alterations are not my cup of tea, so I treated myself to a well-deserved few weeks off. After my sewing hiatus, I was ready to jump back in with a new sewing pattern I hadn't made before. The Sew Over It Penny Dress has been on my "have to make" list for a long time so it seemed like the perfect pattern to help me ease back into my usual sewing routine.  After browsing the Fabric Mart website for the perfect fabric for my Penny Dress, I noticed this beautiful black, shadow blue, and off-white floral peach skin fabric. If you haven't worked with or worn peach skin fabric, you need to get some right away! It is the softest, most delightful fabric ever! It's lightweight and has a beautiful drape, but isn't see-thru! In addition to my peach skin fabric, I also ordered some el

Made by a Fabricista: Summer Vacation Looks

Happy First Friday of the month! It’s officially 3 weeks since I have been off for summer break and I am enjoying every single minute. Even though I am working part time this summer, I still have a bit more time to sew. I was a bit uninspired right after the break but got a burst of sewing energy last week and decided to sew a few pieces. I have been wanting to create a jumpsuit since early Spring and finally decided on a pattern. I have had McCalls 7755 (now M8069) in my stash for quite a while but hated the neckline with the casing. I had an epiphany and decided to use the same neckline method for the top I made in my last post here . The bodice part of the jumpsuit is exactly the same cut and I knew it would work. I should have removed about an inch more from the top but definitely plan to make the adjustments next time around. Additionally I should have gathered it just like the dress but opted to gather the front at 8 inches instead of 7 inches and 4 inches on each side in the bac

Made By A Fabricista: Shirt dresses are for Summer!

Hey boo!  I hope you are having a great spring/summer.  It was really hot here in Ohio this past week and finally cooled down!  The heat wave is returning though so I had to take advantage of this beautiful weather while it lasts.  I’ve been focused on summer attire and if you don’t know already whose patterns stay at the top of the list for me is, then I will tell you.  The one and only, Mimi G.  I love her style and her patterns always have a great fit!  She always comes out with something new and unique and her summer patterns are just that!   March of this year, I went from working at home as a contractor for L Brands to now an Executive Assistant for a school organization.  That’s all I will say. I don’t need anyone popping up at my job! Lol.  I went from being at home for two years wearing whatever I wanted (usually sweats and or my nightgown) and my hair in a messy bun, to working full-time again in an office.  My office is business professional, so I wanted to make some things
