Baby Clothes Memory Bear Pattern and Tutorial

I really can’t take credit for this idea. A friend asked me to make a stuffed bear from the outfit her baby wore home from the hospital. She got the idea from Pinterest and it was a bad link so I can’t source it.   So, I had to come up with my own bear pattern. I used as few pieces as possible, but some extra stitching gives it more shape and allows it to…

Chunky Newborn Beanie Pattern

I love making a little something special for baby shower gifts. My family usually pools together and does a “welcome wagon” for the baby by filling a wagon with assorted baby gifts. I will have to blog about that sometime… pretty sure Mom has some pictures. Anyway, I have done rag edge flannel blankets, but the selection of gender neutral flannel is lacking. So, the surprise gender babies get a hat. I made THIS cute…

Lace Top Box Dress Tutorial

If you “like” my facebook page, you would have seen that I did, in fact, make my girls Easter dresses this year. Yes, I know that was soooo 4 months ago. I am not so patiently waiting on some photo prints to arrive in the mail so that I can finish and show you my current project, so I thought I would do a little backtracking for now. These pictures are more recent than Easter.…

DIY Fabric Bow ~ Pattern and Tutorial

  So, I made THESE cute patriotic peasant dresses for my five girls before Independence Day. The dress is made of red and white chevron quilting cotton. The bows are detachable, making it a multi-holiday dress, if they so desire.  It took me awhile to figure out how I wanted to make the bows so I thought I would share a tutorial today showing how I made them. They can be made in any cotton…

Peasant Dress Quick Cutting Tutorial and Pattern.

Hi! Things have been going pretty well here for the last 9 months or so. I have still been sewing and crafting a lot, mostly for friends and family. We are also making dresses for Project Yesu again this year. Each summer, Mallory goes to Uganda and she has a pillowcase dress drive to take dresses along with her for the girls. We actually make peasant dresses, which are just a little easier, in my…

Easy Doll Maxi Skirt Tutorial

Well, this tutorial has been a long time coming!  I made these when I went on the crazy, maxi skirt sewing marathon session a few months ago.   I tell you what- since I am conquering this whole “fear of knit” thing, these were just the easiest things to sew.  The hard part… sewing shirts to match, finding a spray bottle and the “official” sparkly hair pick (at the same time), and untangling that awful…

Flutter Sleeve Doll Dess

When my 5yo got her own “fake American Girl doll” for her birthday, she immediately began nagging incessantly for a doll dress to match her Flutter Sleeve Sundress (more on that HERE). It was only fair, so I whipped one up as soon as I got a chance. She loves it! Again, I took pictures this time since I didn’t have a deadline and could sew in the daylight hours, so you are getting a…
