New in thee shop: Upcycled Denim and Leather Patchwork Bags


These two bags were made with remnants of denim and leather. The tote bag has a magnetic snap to keep it closed and the crossbody bag is zippered with dual zipper pulls. Both have pockets inside and out. 

The tote patchwork is an abstract piece while the crossbody is a Seminole inspired patchwork. I had accumulated a lot of smaller pieces of denim and other materials so making these patchworks has been a great way to use them all up. Also quite the creative exercise with the tinier pieces like making a puzzle but without instructions.

You can find the bags in my shop.


Vintage Finds | Simplicity 7456 Sewing Pattern from 1976 - Toddler's Short Jumpsuit Romper

This is a baby romper I made using this vintage Simplicity sewing pattern and thrifted plaid fabric. I’ve made a variation of this pattern in the past many times for my @fancylittlemoon Etsy shop so I’m quite familiar with it. I did add Kam snaps to the bottom of this one though. Felt cool making it for keeps now lol. I had this fabric in my stash for a long time too so it’s nice putting it to good use. I made a matching baby bucket hat using this pattern by Sweet Red Poppy and adorned it with a cute little teddy face embroidered patch I bought from Chicbaby Studio etsy shop.


Simplicity pattern 7456 is vintage from 1976. It comes in individual sizes. For this particular romper I used the 1/2 size which I assume is like 6 months. I added a tiny bit of length on the shorts but otherwise made per instructions. It's a pretty easy to follow pattern, give it a try.
