Sewing

June WIP’s

 

Life has been kinda hectic lately so all of my projects have been on the back burner. I figured that the best way to keep me motived is to post my progress on here.

Here’s what I’ve been working on in June:

 

Dritz Espadrilles

I’ve been seeing these a lot lately on instagram and I knew I had to try them myself. It also gave me the opportunity to use my scrap leather from Loyal Stricken. If you want some scraps for yourself go [here]. To get there espadrilles soles go [here].

Baby Shoes

I’ve been working on several different baby gifts and one of them is this adorable pair (well will be pair after I finish the other shoe) of baby slippers from Purl Soho.

*Please ignore my messy apartment*

Elephant

The next baby gift I’ve been working on is actually finished but it’s too cute not to share. You can find the pattern on Etsy [here].

 

 


Catarina Dress

I don’t have enough done to show you, so this is a finished picture of the Catarina dress from Seamwork Magazine.

My version is pink and a lot shorter (I didn’t have enough fabric for a full length version).  Now I need to decide if I’m going to make it a top of a short dress.

Recipe: Dark Chocolate/Coconut Granola

granola

I’ve been trying to get in the habit of eating breakfast every morning. I needed something that was filling  and quick (or at least something that I can take to work easily). I stumbled across this super yummy granola at Target but it didn’t last very long, like 3 days, and by last I mean I ate it fast. Long story short, I decided make my own and it was even better! What is also great about it is it only has 5 ingredients!

Here’s how to make it

Ingredients

4 cups Oats

2 tbsp Quinoa

3/4 cup Shredded Coconut

2 tbsp Honey

1 cup Dark Chocolate Chips

Directions

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

-Mix together oats, quinoa, and coconut in a large bowl. Slowly incorporate honey and mix well.

-Line a baking sheet with tin foil

-Pour mixture onto the baking sheet and put in oven for 5 to 8 minutes or until toasted
-While the mixture is still hot, pour mixture back into bowl and incorporate chocolate chips

*Optional: add an extra 1/2 tbsp of untested coconut at the end
