  • Baby Gift Set Three

    Sewing: Baby Gift Set Three

    Baby gift set three – go Steelers, go! If you caught the first and second baby gift set then you know I forgot to share these photos and tutorials 4 years ago. Well, this one might be the best, yet. Why? Because it combines my brother’s love for the Pittsburgh Steelers with so many useful and functional baby items. Talk about having game day spirit! Okay, let’s get sewing. Baby Gift Set Three Burp Cloth Pee-Pee Tee-Pee Baby Bib (I can’t remember which tutorial I used,…

    Sewing: Baby Gift Set Two

    Baby gift set two. Did you catch the first set earlier this week? Well, I still can’t believe I didn’t share these 4 years ago. I wonder why not? Probably life – it gets busy sometimes (or maybe all the time?!) and things slip. Okay, either way, I’m excited to share this grey gift set with a pop of an orange fox. Why do I like this little fox? Well, it probably has something to do with a photo that’s etched in my memory. My…

    Sewing: Baby Gift Set One

    Baby gift set one! I can’t believe I didn’t share these 4 years ago when I made them for my sweet nephew in Ontario. Look at those little foxes? Aren’t they just the cutest? Well, I’ll share the patterns I used for this adorable gift set, yet the part that’s the most fun is picking out the coordinating fabric. On this set I picked out three key fabrics that tied together, but didn’t matchy-match. No, you want a good combination of neutrals with fun fabrics…

    Sewing: Owl Bag

    This little owl bag is perfect for travelling as a make-up bag, carrying books, or even housing pottery tools! Meal prep Sunday time. I follow @leefromamerica on Instagram. She is a flat out inspiration. Two weeks ago I was inspired to revamp our fridge and jump on the meal prep train. Have you seen the pottery Bryce and I made? Check it out if you haven’t yet. Okay, back to this bright and cheery bag. I made it similar to the make-up bag I made…

    Sewing: Week Fifty: Reversible Dog Stocking

    Oh my – Christmas is only 15 days away. Wow! Oh, and this is my third last post for the 52 weeks of sewing. It’s time for the reversible dog stocking. You’ve most likely seen these on Pinterest and tried to find a tutorial – I tried and failed. Most pins are of people selling them on Etsy – and one, the best one I found, wasn’t a full bone. The backing was a bone and then the front was like a big pocket. Not…

    Sewing: Week Forty Eight: White Bat Wing Dress Tutorial
