‘Cause This is Thriller!

‘Cause This is Thriller!

Here’s Sidra’s Thriller jacket! Although it is not supposed to be a costume, I think it is appropriate to post it on Halloween. As I’ve posted before, I made this jacket on Sidra’s request for his fall jacket. He wanted either a Thriller or Beat It jacket. The number of zippers on Beat It jacket…

Recently I just came to a conclusion that my bra size is not quite right (!!!). You might ask how I didn’t realize that sooner? I think that a part of it was caused by years of never finding the right size so I never knew how the right bra size are supposed to feel. Another…

After making a hoodie for my husband, I continued making another one for Sidra. The fabric is not kid-friendly very white cotton jersey and I found a zipper with red details to go with it. I had this image of Sidra wearing a sparkling white hoodie that I couldn’t resist making the hoodie, although next…

Here’s the hoodie that I made for my husband’s birthday! I just realized that this is the first thing that I made for him this year, and it’s already October! I guess I’ve been spending too much time making things for myself. He never complained though. I’m sorry honey! The pattern is McCall’s 6614, bought…

Can you recognize the jacket? And no, it’s not a Halloween costume for Sidra. Recently I told Sidra that since the weather was going cooler, I would make him a jacket, then I asked if he had anything particular in mind. Maybe I shouldn’t have asked him first and just carry on making the jacket…

My first pair of jeans! Actually not the first pair that I made, as I’ve made jeans several times for my husband and Sidra, but this would be the first time for myself. I finished them more than a week ago and have been wearing them so much ever since. That definitely is a sign of…
