Can you tell I'm on "vacation" this week?! With my hubby home to help watch our daughter, I've been sewing up a storm! Here's another reconstructed shirt from that bag of clothes I saved from the thrift store. I cut it down to size (width, length, neck, and arm holes) and added an empire/baby doll waste. Now I just...
Hurray! I am so excited about this project! When I got it all done, I danced out to the living room squealing to show my hubby. I even took pictures along the way so you can see how I did it. I started with two shirts (which I forgot to take pictures of before I cut, so here they...

We found out a few weeks ago that we will be having a baby boy. The first thing I did was run to the fabric store and buy fabric for a plaid quilt! I'll post the general instructions for making this quilt. If you want more specifics, leave me a comment and I'd be happy to answer any...
When my daughter was born, my mom made a hooded bath towel for her. It is one of THE most useful things...especially now that she's a toddler. If it weren't for the hood, she would probably do a lot more streaking when she gets out of the tub. haha. I made this hooded bath towel to give as a...
I am a stay-at-home-mom with a passion for all kinds of domestic endeavors...sewing, scrapbooking, cooking, preschooling, and the list goes on. This is my little place on the web to display my recent endeavors. It will take me a few days/weeks to get things up and running, but I hope you'll check back soon!
