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: Maxi Looks for Summer

Happy Saturday All!!   This summer break seems to be flying by so quickly and I only have one month before I return to virtual teaching.  After parent surveys, union, and school board meetings our school district is returning to virtual teaching and learning next month.  The cases in Miami Dade County have surged over the last few weeks and with over 70K cases in the county where I teach, and a growing 300K + cases in Florida, I don’t even know when things will return back to normal due to COVID-19.
I have been heartbroken but the only thing I can appeal to others is to stay safe and wear your mask. I am blessed so far to have no immediate family member affected by this pandemic. It has been a tough year for most of us but I am pretty sure that this too shall pass.
Now let’s get into my summer sewing plans!!  Last month I selected 2 prints: a zebra chevron and an animal print and knew I wanted to make maxi looks for summer. Unfortunately, both challis prints are sold out but there are…

Made by a Fabricista: Autumn Transitional Dress and Cardis

Hello Fabric Mart friends!

So nice to say hey again!  Just want to take this opportunity to wish my awesome, sweet and amazing firstborn a Happy 5th Birthday this week.  It's hard to believe he's already FIVE!

Like many folks I've been spending a lot of time at home this Summer, which has translated into lots of sewing.  I've often had a thoughts about sewing for the upcoming season to get maximum wear out of garments, but often seem to be playing catch up for the current season.  But not this time:  here are my first transitional pieces for Autumn, entirely inspired by the wonderful sweater knits I kept spying at Fabric Mart.


First up is the cardigan:  Helen's Closet Blackwood Cardigan


This is the third Blackwood I've made, but the first of the shorter iteration (view B).  It makes me want to sew up a 3/4 sleeve cropped version!


The fabric is a delightfully mottled abstract blot poly/lycra sweater knit.  Unfortunately, it's sold out at the site now but you…
