Tilly and the Buttons Agnes Dress Hack

Tilly and the Buttons Agnes Dress Hack

Hello my dears,

It has been a while since I shared a sewing project. I made this dress two or three weeks ago and I absolutely love it! I used the Tilly and the Buttons Agnes tee and then followed this tutorial on the Tilly and the Buttons blog to turn it into a dress. It was super simple and the finished dress is extremely comfortable to wear.

Yarn Dyeing Days

Yarn Dyeing Days

Hello my dears,

Today was one of those days where everything seemed just a wee bit crazy! I spent the majority of the afternoon/early evening dyeing up new yarn colorways. While waiting for colors and speckles to set, I did a bit of knitting on a couple pairs of socks I have on the needles, read part of a murder mystery, chatted with some of my family via FaceTime, and generally kept very busy.

Pine Trees and Frost: A Tilly and the Buttons Agnes Review

Pine Trees and Frost: A Tilly and the Buttons Agnes Review

Hello my dears,

While my sisters were here, I offered to do some sewing for them if needed. My younger sister took me up on the offer and asked me to sew her a long sleeved t-shirt. Not including popping to Joann for the fabric, this shirt took me about half an hour to whip up. Which is pretty fantastic! This was my fourth time using the Tilly and the Buttons Agnes pattern, so it's no wonder that it came together that quickly.

Introducing Mac!

Introducing Mac!

Hello again!

I initially planned to to film a podcast, have it all uploaded and ready to go for today, but life happened. My sisters left today after being here for the past week and a half. I decided cleaning house and getting back to a usual schedule, (not to mention trying to convince my body that it does not need to develop a cold!) was more important than trying to rush job a podcast. So instead of a podcast post, I want to introduce you to my new little buddy: Mac!!

When Sisters Come to Town

When Sisters Come to Town

Hello my dears!

I have been rather silent on all social medias the past week. My sisters and best pals have been in town visiting which means loads of shenanigans! We've been hanging out, watching movies, crafting, visiting friends, and even managed a trip to the beach. It has all been rather splendid! (I will forewarn you: this is a picture heavy post without much blathering from yours truly.)

Hand-Knit Baby Cardigan

Hand-Knit Baby Cardigan

Some friends of mine recently welcomed a new little baby into their family. I was wracking my brain trying to think of something to make for them when I remembered that I had a ball of Hayfield Baby Blossom Chunky yarn in my stash. I originally purchased this yarn because I fell in love with a sample baby cardigan I had seen knit out of it at my LYS. While I'm not expecting a bundle of joy any time soon, I thought I might be able to make myself something out of it.

Tilly and the Buttons Agnes Tee

Tilly and the Buttons Agnes Tee

Hello my lovelies!

Today I want to talk a bit more about everyone's favorite tee pattern: the Tilly and the Buttons Agnes tee. I have already mentioned this pattern on the blog before. It was my September make for the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network. However, this is the test version I sewed up first to check for any potentially necessary adjustments. This black version of Agnes has ended up being extremely versatile and I've worn it several times already. It makes sense after all, black does go with everything!
