Anspired - Lua sleeping bag

I think sewing bloggers love celebrating. We celebrate new babies, milestones, friends' pattern releases, new beginnings. Today a few of us came together to celebrate our mutual friend An.


An blogs at StraightGrain. She is a talented designer behind StraightGrain patterns. An has been offering PDF patterns for some time and recently produced her first paper pattern. Everything An makes is beautiful and inspiring. She knows how to choose perfect fabric and prints for her projects. Her attention to detail is impeccable. And she is a great person to get to know!

When Suz proposed to have a surprise party for An I knew I wanted to make something using one of her patterns. I have already made the Ishi dress and the Tinny dress for Miss R. I also have the Hanami dress and top and the Moiano coat patterns. I am sure Miss R would have loved these also. However...


Yes, I made a Lua sleeping bag for Baby L. This is yet another brilliant pattern designed by An. I tried to incorporate the things that I think An likes while making this sleeping bag.

Top Knot tunic - the lazy edition

When Miss R saw a green and blue romper I made for her baby sister she asked me to make her something from the same fabric. I was more than happy to grant her wish :)


I 'hacked' the Top Knot romper/dress/tunic pattern by Calk and Notch to make a top for Miss R. This, my friends, is the laziest hack I have ever done.

Mouse raglan top

A couple of months ago I fell in love with a mousy raglan top Fatima made for her little girl. In fact, I loved it so much I copied it!

Jumpy rompers for a wiggly baby

Our sweet Baby L is such a happy little girl! She talks more than Miss R and I combined. Trust me, that is an achievement! As soon as Baby L hears music she starts dancing. She is very inquisitive and she never stops!


Little explorers need to be comfortable. When it comes to comfort, nothing beats a romper. So, While she was sleeping, I made not one, but two Jumpy Rompers by Puperita for my sweet Baby L.

The rainbow Tinny dress

Miss R: Mummy, I love this fabric! Can we buy it?
Me: But it has a lot of triangles on it. You usually like flowers.
Miss R: But I really like it. It is like a rainbow. Can we buy it?
Me: What would you like to use it for?
Miss R: You can make me a rainbow dress.

While she was sleeping, I made a rainbow dress for Miss R using the Tinny dress pattern by StraightGrain patterns.
