maya mori

in the midst…



my goodness, it’s been forever since i’ve posted!  life has been so very busy lately.  school projects, oya no kai’s auction, running after frankie and getting ready for our baby!  i am almost 36 weeks and it’s hard to believe that our little one will be here in less than a month.

my dear friend jen came to visit me a few weeks ago & we settled in for 4 days of sewing, crafting and catching up.  jen is one of the most creative people i know…check out her projects, ideas and her latest office re-design at creating bits of envy.

we sifted through piles of patterns/fabric and decided to make some clothes to fit the new baby in the fall.  she also encouraged me to complete my unfinished projects.  months ago i started several outfits for frankie and never finished them!

first up, a modern cowl dress for f.  i found the downloadable heidi & finn pattern on etsy.  i made a matching headband out of fabric scraps & vintage buttons.  jen finished the red velvet jacket i had cut out for christmas…it looks perfect with the stripes!striped modern cowl dressstripes headbandred velvet bolerored velvet bolero / vintage button detail

next we worked on some outfits for the baby.  i made a reversible jacket/dress out of vintage knit, red flannel and handmade bias tape.  jen pieced together an adorable dress out of the smallest fabric scraps EVER, using a patty young modkid pattern.dress 1dress detail 1dress 2the maya dressruffle detailfabric detail

we completed several other projects…i will take pictures & post soon!



i adore the infinity scarf.  so simple, so comfortable.  i’ve been making these scarves like crazy and wanted to share.  i made my first one in bamboo/cotton jersey, then decided to get creative.  i tried combining fabrics, which creates a lovely twist of color &/or texture.  i absolutely love how differently they each look & feel.
