Upcycled PJs

Upcycle sewing projects are so fun. This kaftan wasn’t my style but I loved the fabric. The length was perfect for pajama bottoms. I used an existing pair of PJs as a template.

After sewing together the four pieces I put in an elastic waistband. The bottom of the pants were the bottom of the kaftan so the hem was already in place.

They fit and feel great! Next up were PJs for Josh.

I hemmed this fun PJ set for Josh and put in a new elastic waistband. The fabric is super soft and warm.

Next up is turning a robe into a purse. I’m on an upcycle roll!

Formosa Moon Advance Review Copy and our first interview!

We recently received the Advance Review Copy of Josh and I’s book Formosa Moon!

It’s so exciting to finally hold it in our hands. Though I will confess it’s a little surreal to see our photo on the cover.

Currently we’re proofreading the book looking for any errors and writing captions for the surprisingly large amount of photos. The book is large too; it numbers 329 pages.

Josh and I recently went up to Maokong to do some proofreading while enjoying coffee and the splendid views.

We had our first interview on James Thomas’ show 4 Seas 1 Family. You can listen to the interview here. The interview was fun to do even with Hazel and Floyd making unscheduled appearances. You can’t stop those two.
