kojotutorial- anthropologie knock off flutter curtains

IMG_9267-1

This isn’t a surprise to you, but my “Repurposed” entry for So You Think You Can Sew Week 2 is the flutter curtains (they’re a knock off of Anthropologie’s Tender Falls Shower Curtain). I’ll be honest, every time I do an Anthropologie knock off, I feel like I should start my tutorial with a Big [...]

kojotutorial: how to make baby boots from a felted sweater

Good thing Piper Jane is fifteen months old and generally fairly oblivious about things like surprises. Because, not only am I planning on sharing most of her Christmas presents on the blog (the handmade ones, at least), I also keep using her as my model. For her own gifts. Pretty sure I don’t have many [...]

kojotutorial: a rainbow of adjustable little leggies

Winter in Denver is all over the map. One week it’s snowy, blustery and ‘Colorado-y’ and the next week it’s 70 degrees (literally, that describes our last couple of weeks- haha!).

Before we had kids, my husband and I would wander through boutiques and [...]

kojotutorial: scrap materials house number!

You know that elated feeling when you finally tackle something that’s been on your to-do list for a long time?  That is how I felt hanging up our new house number!  Even better, I used leftover construction materials that I found in our garage to put our new house number together (well, except the numbers [...]

kojotutorial: little leggies from sweater sleeves

After I finished making the plaid schoolgirl skirts for Keadryn and Sayla, I had a revelation.  The girls needed (not wanted, NEEDED) little leggies to go with these plaid school girls skirts.  And I had just the thing to make that happen for them- sweater sleeves, of course. You can probably guess what to do [...]
