    I don’t know how to sew but you have completely inspired me to learn!!! Thank you so much for posting such beautiful patterns.

    I LOVE the outfits you create. I would LOVE to make the Taking Notes Mini skirt for my daughter for her aunt’s wedding this December, but after searching high and low (your entire archive), I cannot find the instructions! I’ve saved the pdf just fine, but I don’t know how much fabric to buy or how to sew it together. Help!

    Hey Kel, I’m making some skirts and I can’t seem to get the pdf’s to load. I thought about making the bali tunic longer for a baby dress or the yellow skirt note taking. Should I be signing up for the mediafire before I can see the files? Thanks!

    I love your website, there are so many wonderful ideas, I check it every couple of days. I was wondering if you had the instructions for the taking note skirt, I just think it is the cutest thing ever.

    Oh I love all your aprons.

    Hey, I’m wanting to make the note taking skirt, it’s adorable. I’ve noticed in people’s comments that others have asked about it as well. The pdfs I opened only have what looks like the top of the skirt. Could I get a pattern for the rest of it? Thanks, your dresses and skirts look great!

    I have skimmed over SO many of your patters when I’m on a 1 am Google hunt for something cool to make. I had no idea ONE WOMAN could have so many beautiful creations AND pictures to follow along with. THANK YOU for sharing your amazing creativity. Now…I must go make an apron. :)

    Oh, my goodness, what a wonderful collection of tutorials and patterns! Your designs and photography of them is amazing – you are very talented (and the subjects are beautiful)! Congratulations on balancing motherhood with your creativity! I too had four little ones (my son was 2 when the triplets came along) and sewed not only for the budget, but for sanity’s sake… Now they are all grown, but some of our best times together were in the sewing room, and they are all confident stitchers themselves. Love it!

    I am in the process of making the bottom mellow yellow dress and the tutorial is off the site. is there anyway that you can email it to me?

    You have the cutest patterns!

    Thank you :)

    Love your blog! I got really excited to see some of these patterns however when I clicked on the link (for example, the bottom mellow dress) to the tutorials it would just send me to your latest blog entry. It may just be me, but I don’t think so because most of your other links do work. I even saw some pins on Pinterest for this and it did the same thing when I clicked on their links. Please let me know if this gets fixed!

      On October 3, thirty high soochl students from Mount Si’s Key Club visited the homes of two elderly folks in North Bend. Armed with gloves, garden tools, and determination ..they set out to offer assistance to these homeowners where the labor had simply become too big an obstacle. The students split and stacked firewood, trimmed overgrown bushes and hedges, brought garden beds back to objects of beauty, raked leaves, and filled an enormous trailer with discarded and rotting lumber that was taken to the dump. The best part of this endeavor was the smiles and hugs given by the homeowners to these high soochl Key Clubbers. That so many showed up at their homes to Pay it Forward was overwhelming and one of the most heart-warming experiences I have seen. Way to go Mount Si Key Club!

    These are incredible! I just want to make them all! Did I somehow overlook the tutorial for the ruffled top in the banner picture? It’s adorable!

  18. Kelly


    I was just trying to open the ‘Bottom Mellow Dress’ tutorial but it just takes me back to your homepage. I have got the pattern pieces, is there just a problem with the tutorial link?

  19. Monique

    So I was able to scour the internet and find the tutorial for the Bottom Mellow Dress; however, I am confused by the directions!! I haven’t been able to get past the first step! I was wondering if there were any updates to this tutorial? Or perhaps you would be willing to repost the tutorial?! :) I appreciate any feedback! LOVE this dress, can’t wait to get started on it!! :)

  20. Monique

    Just wanted to give you an update… I figured out the pattern and finished the dress! It is absolutely adorable. Thank you, Kelly!! You are so amazingly talented and I appreciate learning from you! Keep the tutorials coming! :)

    In your banner with the changing photographs, there is a picture of three girls holding hands and wearing the cutest skirts. It looks like a ruffled skirt with an overskirt. Is there a pdf file for that pattern? I saw a picture of it on Pinterest. Thanks.

    I saw a pants tutorial on Pinterest last night that had a picture of a little girl wearing a white shirt with birds holding a red ornament and wearing green pants. I have been looking for over an hour for this tutorial. If it helps, here is the web address:

    I would love to see how you made this as I make clothes for my children. These are really cute to me!!
