easy sewing project

It’s almost Spring again, are you getting in the mood to reorganize and freshen up your house? I am. One of my favorite baskets is the SKUBB collection at IKEA. They come in various sizes, are my favorite color, and are perfectly rectanglar/square so they fit really efficiently in a variety of spaces. Sometimes my […]

Pencil pouches are just great, useful for so many things besides pencils. I use them for traveling, organizing sewing and knitting tools, toys, and lots more. They’re pretty inexpensive to buy but so boring. With a few scraps of fabric and some vinyl, you can make something to suit your personality. Here’s what you’ll need […]

I promised this tutorial months ago when I did my first pattern sew-along (remember the wool bias skirt?) and here it finally is! I’ve been wanting to make a light-weight knit lounge sack for Linus so he has some cozy but not too hot jammies. He’s crawling so we can’t do a sleep sack anymore, […]

Michael Miller just released a bunch of beautiful new lines, including some new knit fabrics by Patty Young! Lately I have been all about the knits – they’re so soft and comfy and … comfy. I love comfy for me, for my kids, it’s what I need in my life right now. I have a […]

These days my mornings get started way to fast for me to even think about doing something interesting with my hair. So pony tail it is on most days, but that’s nothing a twisty headband can’t fix! SUPPLIES 1/4 yard fabric (or a large scrap) I used the new Riley Blake Chevron in Navy basic […]

Pin It A while ago Michael Miller sent a bunch of cotton quilting fabric from the Ta Dot collection, my FAVORITE polka dot fabrics ever. And then I had a baby…and then I had a newborn…and then I had a 6 month old…and THEN I finally had time to do something fabulous with the fabric. […]

Pin It Sprocket Pillows…from CluckCluckSew…my new favorite thing! I wanted to introduce some coralish pinky into my blue/green color scheme, but this may be a little too much. You think? (It’s a watermelon color, not red…) I LOVE this pattern, and I’m going to make another one today (they’re so easy, maybe an hour in […]

Pin It I whipped me up a new nursing cover to (mostly) match my car seat cover for this new baby. I used this fabulous Michael Miller fabric, part of the Citron Gray line. I love how it’s so neutral. Pretty for me but not girly for Linus. Love. It. I did this one super […]

Pin It We’ve done a little sprucing up of our master bedroom with the help if IKEA and now this Amy Butler duvet from Bed Bath & Beyond. Blues and greens are my favorites…and now grey. I love grey. Our last duvet got a little discolored at the top because of the oils from our […]

As promised, here is Part 2 of the Car Seat Cover Tutorial (here’s Part 1: The Cover)! Cut four strips of fabric from coordinating or same fabric. Press exactly in half, open, and press outer edges in to center so it ends up looking like above. Press flat. The ends are going to have raw […]
