Hipster Cat Dress

My niece just turned 5 years old and she is such a cutie pie! She has big, pink glasses and she was wanted a “kitty” birthday party. When I saw THIS fabric on Joann’s website I knew that I had to make her a special dress for her birthday. She is also very thin with long legs so I thought it would be nice for her to have something sized just for her. I decided…

Free Printable Planner Stickers ~ Soccer

Spring sports have begun. It is generally our busiest season of the year. Being in a very rural area, it is not uncommon for games to be 45 minutes (or more) from our home. On a weeknight, sometimes going in opposite directions, that can be nuts! I definitely need some planner stickers to keep track of this stuff! First up, I have some soccer planner stickers. I made them in colors that coordinate with my…

Unicorn Dresses

A few weeks ago someone absolutely destroyed my sewing scissors. I still don’t know who or how it happened. I don’t think that mere paper could have caused those nicks and warped the metal blades. It is a mystery. But I was in the mood to sew something, so I turned to the pile of projects that I already had cut out. I am not 100% happy with these, but they will probably stain and…

Elastic Sleeve Doll Peasant Dress Pattern and Tutorial

Peasant dresses are really easy to make and there are a lot of simple variations that can drastically alter the style. It is a perfect beginner sewing project! The next step up from the basic peasant dress is the addition of elastic to the sleeves. Now, for a peasant dress for a human girl I would just make an elastic casing, but since doll clothes have smaller pieces I like to just add the elastic…

(You can read the initial post HERE.) I have 6 bags so far! I have had a few cleaning binges, but most of it has just been done in one small area at a time. The…

Ribbon Bow Mini Hair Clips Tutorial

Several years ago I was very ambitious and made hair clips for my girls. I got a bunch of supplies to get started. Then, over the years, I collected more. And more. And more. And made less. And less. And less. They are so cute! You can make them for holidays, stocking stuffers, and Easter egg fillers. At one point I wanted to have headbands or hair clips to match all of my girls’ outfits!…

Red Tractor Dish Towels

Most people do not understand, but there is a lot of disagreement within the farming community. Red vs. Green There are other tractors, but the main rivalry exists between John Deere and International Harvester users. I married into the red side. (My dad was just happy for a working tractor- color did not matter.) Snarky t-shirts are often seen at family picnics. My youngest daughter refuses to wear green or yellow. The kids argue at…

Free Printable Planner Stickers ~ Welcome Spring

I don’t think I have ever looked forward to spring quite so much. I have come to realize that, despite my best attempts at authenticity, I am still keeping up a front on social media. In the past I have been critical of social media because it shows everyone’s highlight reels instead of the full picture.  Now I see that there may be very good reasons for that… Maybe their problems are none of your business.…
