Rowan Raglan


Look at this sweet boy. We went to take some pictures, and he hit the ground running, and I don’t think he stopped once. Ha! If you look closely, you’ll see a smartie in his hands in every picture. Bribery attempted, and failed. It’s cute/funny now 🙂

He’s wearing the Rowan Raglan from Made for Mermaids. This is their second boy pattern! But it’s actually packed full of options for girls too. So perfect for me, with two boys and two girls to sew for!

Size range goes from 1/2-14. It’s a knit pattern with short, 3/4, and long sleeves. Regular shirt length, banded tunic, ruffle tunic and dress options. Optional shoulder flutters, optional hood (hemmed or lined) and fun animal ears to sew into the shoulder seams, and animal face cut files for your silhouette or cricut!! I love animals on clothes, so this is such a fun selling point for me!

It’s on sale for $7 through Saturday, it’s such a deal with the crazy amount of options!!

The blue shirts were an early version, and the neckbands have been lengthened in the final pattern. The blue shirts are both basic long sleeve tees. The black version is the ruffle tunic with 3/4 sleeves and shoulder flutters.

421 Myers Headbands


I know, headbands are easy to make, easy to DIY, easy to come up with your own pattern for… I was a die hard DIY-er a couple of years ago. I drafted everything I wanted to make. I’d probably search Pinterest first, and maybe find something to use, but I did a lot of my own things too. And they mostly worked out. But it is so nice to have a full pattern, that’s been tested, with a picture tutorial to take all the guess work out of it! And now that I sew so many gifts for others, and I can’t measure them, it’s nice to have all the sizes ready for me 🙂

I’m here to share these five 5 FIVE!!! FREE headband patterns from 421 Myers Designs. She’s starting her own pdf pattern company, and is putting out some great freebies to get started!

I’ve made the wire headband, but also included are free knot headband, elastic headband with bow tie, elastic headband with tied bow, and non-slip headband patterns!

You can find them in her facebook group in the pinned post.

Now, about this wire headband. It is crazy simple. Just a little cutting, sewing, and ironing, and slip a piece of wire in, and you can go crazy with styling! These were so fun to wear, and the girls loved playing with them, long after we took these quick pics.

I’d encourage you to go check out her group, and sew up some headbands for yourself, or your bff’s new baby!

Here’s the rest of our pictures!
