pink velvet kitty pillow

So with baby boy on the way there's been a big shifting of the rooms in our house...my sewing room moved to Ava's old room (the nursery), and we moved the girls into my old sewing room. It's the largest bedroom besides our master, but we had to have the sliding door changed to a window first. We're making progress on the room-it's almost done and I … [Read more...]

Little Ladybug Softie tutorial

I made this wee little Ladybug softie for Sadie Charlotte whoever got it first yesterday! Of course, I whipped out my Go! Baby cutter (affiliate link) to cut the sah-weet (and so easy!) circles for the project.

Then Ally thought they were toys for her....I have a feeling she will be doing that with most of our baby toys. They all make fun noises! Poor thing. Anyways, here's a pic! Tutorial … [Read more...]

Bunny and Block

So, my second attempt at making a stuffed animal was a little better. For one thing, Rory did not dub it "psycho demon kitty", (or psycho demon-bunny), so I'm ahead already. We named her Bunny. I know she doesn't have a face yet, but I'm pregnant! Give me a break. (that excuse is soo handy sometimes!)Also, I tried a soft fabric block pattern that … [Read more...]
