We Hang Out Here

Pin It One of the most wonderful aspects to blogging in general, and especially within the craft blogging community, is the ability to share ideas.  We love being able to share what we are making and to see what your creative skills have produced.  Specifically, to develop a niche community of people who sew for tweens, we host a 2 week long linky party for all things sewn for tweens.  It starts on the first Wednesday of the month and ends on the third Wednesday.  We would love for you to show off your projects and gain new inspiration.

We also love to share with others within the community so, we link up our projects to the following wonderful linky parties.

  1. Hi there,
    I love your site and have found lots of great ideas here for my tween granddaughters. I just finished a Primrose dress, with the oldest helping out, as her graduation from 6th grade dress, and she is thrilled.
    I'd like to do some Skinny Jeans for her and her 10 year old sister, and wonder if you have a suggestion for a pattern. I have the Peek a Boo pattern, and have made it twice in smaller sizes, but to be honest I don't love it and since 12 is the top of its range, am hesitant that it would really fit the older girls well. I'm a five hour drive away from them, so like things to be reliable without too much tweaking.

    1. I would recommend the Burdastyle #149. It is a great skinny jean with a functioning fly zipper. I know it gets really hard to find pants past size 12 and then I think you may need to start looking at women's sizes. But Burdastyle.com does have a few.


We love comments! How else would we know if we are being helpful or giving you the content you need and want? Also, if you have an idea on how to make custom pre-teen clothes, please tell us about it!
