Vintage Sheet Curtains and Sneak Peek at Playhouse Remodel

A few years ago, I traded a chocolate cake with peanut butter icing for a playhouse. Now, the playhouse had been used as a chicken coop, so it was a bit of a fixer-upper. Last summer, my dad came over and helped us did almost everything to fix it up. I had the easy part- some painting, caulk, and now… the decorating. I got this thrifted sheet a little while ago and it matches the…

Fleece Kittens

I finished something!!! YAY!!!!! Pretty sure that kitten is cheering for me here! I am really on a roll lately! (Pats self on back.) To be fair, I am finishing up all of the things that were *this* close to being done. You can see my Finish-A-Long list HERE. These fleece kittens were supposed to be party favors for my daughters second birthday party last August. There were too many kids coming and not enough…

Scrappy Squares Doll Quilt

The other day, since I had a few minutes before an appointment, I pulled up Netflix to finish an episode of Fixer Upper and sat down to hand stitch the binding on this doll quilt. Spring sports are upon us, so with the rushing around all of the time, it was awesome to just sit down and relax for a little bit. AND I got another finish done from my Finish-A-Long goals (see HERE). Double…

Mommy Pig and Piglets

I am really serious about finishing up all of those projects that I blogged about! Right away, I finished that big mommy pig. It just needed more stuffing, a small repair, and a nose. I bought the pattern about 5 or 6 years ago from ikatbag HERE. Part of the reason that I procrastinated so long on this one was because I wasn’t too thrilled about how it was turning out. When I started it,…

Finish-A-Long Goals Q2

I am not holding back today. I am a procrastinator. I start things and don’t finish them. Then, I start other things and just keep piling on the unfinished projects. My sewing table is in my bedroom- some of those unfinished projects are the first things I see when I go to sleep and when I wake up. There are other stuffed in different areas of my house, too. I feel like a failure for…

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…

Furreal Friends Monkey Diapers and Pillowcase Top

My daughter got this adorable Furreal Friends monkey for Christmas. It really is super cute, even if the nose ripped in the first day or two. (She also got a dog two years ago and it broke in the first few days. If these things weren’t so cute that she still loves them immensely I would stop buying them due to the poor quality). There was also another problem. The bottom holds the batteries and…

Mend Holes in Jeans 3 Different Ways

My 7yo has been really hard on her jeans! I guess she is just at that age. I also catch her crawling around on the floor playing with her younger sisters a lot. Whatever the cause, she is wearing holes in the knees of all of her jeans! Some of them I just bought her a few months ago! Grrr! I did get her another pair, but I don’t want to keep buying jeans because…
