quick iphone case and some headbands

I wanted to make something to thank my friend Rachelle for the pictures she took of Ava, so I sewed up a fun case for her phone-I'm pretty sure she likes mustard yellow so hopefully it's a hit. (who doesn't like mustard yellow, right? if you don't...you are dead to me. just kidding. or am I...) I used this great tutorial and pattern and whipped a … [Read more...]

yellow and coral knit top

I just cannot stop myself. I am in deep with coral and yellow (add some mint or teal and it's all over). I thrifted a big yellow and white striped shirt to refashion for one of the girls, and Sadie needs shirts more than Charlotte right now, so she got it. (you should see C's drawers, they barely close!) She's been growing into all of Sadie's old … [Read more...]

scalloped garland tutorial

Hey Howdy Hey....channeling Woody the cowboy today I guess. I don't know why I say these things sometimes. Moving on....so I had a bunch of random scraps of fabric leftover from the quilt and other projects, so I decided to make a fun scalloped garland to swankify a wall in the new nursery. Yes, that's a word...  I am so close to being done with … [Read more...]

baby gifts are adorable, no? plus a mini tutorial!

A good friend of mine had a darling baby girl a few months back, and I totally forgot to share what I made her! Just some simple gifts-appliqued onesies, a blanket, and a onesie/skirt combo. I used some new dies for my Go Baby cutter, and they were perfect for this type of project. Easy and quick...the bread and butter of us crafters, eh? The … [Read more...]

felt dahlia flower

  I've been wanting to make more of these flowers ever since I made one a few months ago, but my plans always fell by the wayside. (along the wayside are also my plans for world domination and the best chocolate chip cookie recipe in the world, but what can you do?) When I asked Sadie if she liked this flower, she said,"yeah...? It's a circle." … [Read more...]

C’s Christmas dress

***Check out the winner of the Modern Fabric giveaway here!*** Ready for some chubby legged (and cheeked) Charlotte goodness? OH, and her Christmas dress. Yes, I got it done, and although it's fairly simple, I love how it turned out! I really wanted to use red fabric this year, since I'd done green all the other years. (all 2 of them har har) I … [Read more...]

mini scalloped felt flowers

  Another felt flower! These are easy and so cute. I made them by first cutting out flowers with my Go Baby! Rose of Sharon die.  I loooove the accuquilt cutter! (affiliate link) I use it so much for felt work! You could cut a flower shape out by hand easily, too. Mine were about 3" wide. Then I started cutting a spiral shape like … [Read more...]

Today I'll show you how I made these easy layered flowers. First I cut out a bunch of flowers from wool felt, using my Go Baby! Rose of Sharon die. I use my Accuquilt … [Read more...]

baby shower gifts

So you saw the shower I co-hosted for my pal Aimee, right? So....I kind of went a little handmade crazy for her present. I couldn't help it! Baby girl stuff is just too much fun to make. My favorite part of her gift was this little quilt I made for baby Penny. It's not pieced, obviously, just two yards of fabric layered with batting and quilted, … [Read more...]

works in progress…

Hey, all! How was your weekend? Mine was busy and fun! I thought I'd show you some of my works in progress right now. (of course there are a million-point-five projects on the eventual to-do list, but we'll see which ones get done, eh?) The other day, Sadie and I walked down to a garage sale down the street from our house, and I found this … [Read more...]
