I LOVE Baby Girl Sewing!

I absolutely LOVE sewing cute baby things! Especially baby girl things! 😀 So, do you remember the Easter dresses I made this year? (If you don’t they are shown at the end of THIS post.) I also made a matching tie for my son later this summer (shown in THIS post) but he didn’t want the “girly” yellow I picked out so I used grey instead.  That meant I had a half yard of coordinating…

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…

Sneak Peek ~ A Little Sewing Time in the AC

My sewing machine is in the air conditioning.  I have really been in the mood to sew a lot lately! First up, I expanded upon this years’ Easter collection: I made a tie for my very unhappy son who says that polka dots are “girly” but I think it is very classy.  I also made a purse for Grace with scraps from her Little Diva Dress.  She is really into purses right now.  I used…

Maxi Skirts Galore!

A few weeks ago I was on a maxi skirt sewing frenzy… Please excuse my modeling skills in the following pictures. 🙂 As you can see, one of my daughters, however, thinks she is QUITE the little model. Sometimes she overdoes it, though. For the girls’ pink and blue skirts I used THIS tutorial, but the waist needs to be an inch or so smaller than the actual measurement (these are little girls without womanly hips…

Sweet Summer Halter Top Tutorial

Last summer I did a guest post for Fireflies and Jellybeans, so I thought it would be nice to bring it home and repost it over here on my blog, too.  Looking at these pictures of little Gracie, who just turned two the other day, makes me a little bit sappy. Oh, I am going to be a mess with this last baby, aren’t I? *sniff, sniff* OK, back to the tutorial.  Here you go……

Strawberry Shortcake Dress

Just a quick little show-off here… I made another Strawberry Shortcake dress (original HERE) for my niece’s 3rd birthday. It turned out super cute and she immediately wanted to put it on, so she must have liked it. 🙂 Same as before, it is a semi-circle skirt (left over from my screw-up two years ago) sewn to an embellished Garanimals T-shirt from Walmart.  This time I improved and did two things differently: 1. Garanimals shirts…

Regular to Maternity T-Shirt Refashion Tutorial

Please excuse the photographer’s finger in the top corner there. 🙂 Usually I do not sew many things for myself and I am not usually all that picky when it comes to clothing. BUT, I saw these T-shirts on sale at Target in CUTE colors and I just really, really wanted them! So I splurged. On myself.  That almost NEVER happens!  Here is how I mentally justified it: Maternity T-shirts are way more expensive (I…

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…
