Paper Pieced Christmas Tree Sewing Pattern

Check out this paper pieced Christmas tree! A modern Christmas quilt sewing pattern, it's a great first paper piecing pattern to try and uses up the smallest of scraps.

Paper piecing is so much fun, and I’m getting a jump on holiday sewing with this paper pieced Christmas tree! Most traditional holiday decor isn’t my style but I love how the geometric lines and crisp edges of this design looks when it is sewn up. A completed block measures 12″ square and I’m planning on making it into a pillow set with my paper pieced reindeer from another Quiet Play pattern, see it here!

‘Captain Underpants’ Boys Briefs – Momma Quail Patterns

Why buy scratchy, stiff undies when you can sew your son some handmade underwear? I'm sharing the handmade boy briefs I made with the 'Captain Underpants' pattern from Momma Quail Patterns. Perfect thing to sew for boys, and uses up fabric scraps easily!

It’s been a while since I sewed anything for my son, but now I have a whole set to share! He figured out the potty and got out of diapers a few months ago, but it seems that all the cute “character” underwear stops after size 4t. I pestered my dear pattern designer friend Amy to see if she had any undies up her sleeve (figuratively) and she whipped out this whole amazing pattern! I helped test, sorta, which means I got a copy of the pattern for free, but all opinions are my own.
