Inside Out Disgust Dress for Little Momo

With a little push from KCW,  I have completed the Halloween sewing!    It is Inside Out for us this year...we loved the movie, we loved the characters, it was an easy choice for us!  Momo's favorite character was Disgust, and she could not have been happier with her choice!

Woodland Fairy Costume for Little Momo

I took a little blogging was unplanned, but there were several things that have been keeping me busy...mainly the new schedule brought by Momo entering the kindergarten, and the craft room makeover I have been working on.  I have less personal time to sew now, but October is a fun time to sew for someone like me, who loves costumes!  I just had to sew even if that meant even less sleep hours for me ;o
This woodland fairy costume was unplanned, just like my blogging break.  But I love fairies, and when the costume idea came to my mind, I got really excited.  Momo confirmed she would love a new fairy dress, so I tired to make something that would please her too.

Maxi Washi Dress for Me!

Here is my latest selfish-sewing, and it's a maxi Washi dress!  This was another Washi Dress I planned to sew last summer, but that did not happen...just like many other projects I plan in my head ;p    The dress is not perfect, and I will mention about the flaws.  But first let me say, I do like this dress!

Elephants First Day Dress for Little Momo

Here she kindergarten kid!  While Momo has been calling herself as a "big girl" for a while, I now feel like she officially is!   She just started the kindergarten, and I sewed up this dress for the first day of the school.

Peacock Sally Dress for Little Momo

I have had this idea of making a peacock dress ever since I saw the "Wild Things" theme for KCW back in spring.  I was too busy then, but I finally got around to make it now.  It is just a few months late...that is actually not too bad, since I do not have time to make everything that pops in my head, and many of those ideas just eventually get forgotten.

Refashioned Pillowcase Dress for Little Momo

August is not my favorite month...the brutal heat gets me, and I just don't feel like doing anything.    I am taking things slightly easy, and definitely doing less cooking these days.  Momo is eating more sandwiches...luckily she is happy to eat sandwiches :)   I still want to sew, but I wanted a simple and easy project.  A pillowcase dress is probably the easiest dress ever.

INSIDE OUT Twirly Dress for Little Momo

Has everyone seen the Disney's latest movie, INSIDE OUT yet?   Even if not, I am sure most of you are familiar with the characters...the emotions inside the head, Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust. I saw this adorable INSIDE OUT character fabric at Jo-Ann and I just had to get it for Momo!

Sunshine Ishi Dress for Little Momo

 Last week was KCW...and I planned to sew at least 2 items.  But of course, life never goes as planned.   I was busy, tired, and the sewing itself had some issues.   But somehow I got this new Ishi dress done yesterday morning, and Momo was happy to model it for me.

Wizard of Oz Dorothy Inspired Summer Dress for Little Momo

This month's pattern for Project Run and Play's sew along is Frozen Elsa Dress.  It is a great tutorial showing how to make a simple princess dress that would please any girls.  But to be honest I was not sure what to do with it at first... I love making princess dresses, and I do plan to make one or two this year, but I will probably do that later this year.  It is so hot right now, I just do not feel like sewing fancy dresses.  But missing out this challenge?  Me, who love to sew pretend dress-up clothes?  No, that was not happening!   After a little thinking,  I remembered the Wizard of Oz event I am planning to take Momo to this summer.   It would be more fun if Momo had a dress to go with it!

Yukata Inspired Ishi Dress for Little Momo

 Well the end of May was crazy for us...  Storms came, and it rained and rained and rained.  Last week the rain had stopped and we had a chance to dry up and got few things done.  We still have things to take care around the house, but I have been sewing at night.  Here is my latest project, an Ishi dress!

Twirly Summer Dress for Little Momo

It is May, and it is time to sew for Project Run and Play!  I skipped the last month's bag challenge, but this month's pattern is Summer Chevron Shirt, a cute and practical wear...I had to try!

Floral Summer Dress for Me!

All the mothers out there...I hope you had a wonderful Mother's day.  Mine was lovely...nothing extravaganza, but sweet.  Hubby treated me with a nice brunch at home, and Momo made sure he would buy roses for me :)   And on Saturday Momo and I had the usual mommy-daughter date at a garden.  I wore the dress I just finished...

Reindeer Hanami Top for Little Momo

This season of KCW's theme is "Wild Things."  Isn't this a great theme...I expect to see so many fun projects.  I got really excited with this theme, and I really wanted to participate...the theme matched to what I already had in my mind to sew... a little tunic top using this pretty forest animal print fabric. But I had to move up my sewing week early because I knew I personally will not have time to sew in the week of 4/20, not even 1 hour a day.

Bunny Knot Dress for Little Momo

This week I managed to sew up a dress for Project Run and Play's March challenge.  I got caught up in the selfish sewing last week, and I did not start this project till Monday.  Finding the time to sew was most challenging ;o

Refashioned Tank Dress for Little Momo

Before the Kid's Clothes Week is over, I just wanted to make one more thing.  This time the theme for KCW  is "Upcycled."    This was a perfect push for me to check what I had in my stash box. I digged up 2 tank tops that had been waiting for my attention for 1 or 2 years...I cannot remember ;o

Fox Fleece Dress for Little Momo

So we are back to the winter weather again.  I knew those sunny warm days were too good to be true... :(  Anyway I thought Momo could use just one more fleece dress before the winter is over.  I tried to pick a cute print Momo would approve, even though the dress shape is not something She is crazy about.

Birdie First Day Dress for Little Momo

Sometimes we would have spring-like warm days in the middle of winter.  I love those days...warm and sunny, and no mosquitoes to worry about!  And if those days falls on weekend, it is just perfect.  Momo and I took advantage of a warm Saturday afternoon and went to the zoo.  And Momo knew exactly what she wanted to wear, a new bird print dress I just finished.

Fleece Belinda Dress for Little Momo

Here is one of the fleece items I have been sewing for Momo lately.  We have had some cold days since the holidays, and she needed something warm and school appropriate.

Princess Dress-Up Rack for Little Momo

I cannot believe half of January has passed already.  I feel like I am still stuck in 2014...having hard time accepting it is 2015.  Am I the only one???   I am a little behind with getting the projects done and writing about them.  Here is what Momo got for Christmas...a princess dress-up rack!
