Sewing for toddler: Footless tights
Sewing for
toddler: Footless tights I love
early spring time. It means warmer weather, but not sweltering heat. It means
adorable dresses on baby girls, and fun had by all hanging outside. But what
it also means is chilly mornings and evenings bookending th...

Puppy Love
Sewing for newborns is fun, and addictive I am learning. I had purchased a yard of this knit fabric from Joann's and made a few diapers, but was still left with a lot of fabric. I knew it would be perfect for clothing, but wasn't sure what to make. I don't ...

Sewing for the baby
Baby #7 is on his way and I need to get crackin'! I have tons of left over boy stuff because I learned a long time ago that when you have, or expect to have, a large family, you don't get rid of clothing until it is dead. Kids clothes really can last for aw...

My new sewing buddy needs a name
Do you have Freecycle in your area? If so, I seriously suggest you check it out. It's an amazing place where you can offer up items you no longer need, but someone else may have use for, and where other people do the same. In my local area, you can also pos...

A new favorite?
Today I wanted to talk about a new diaper I have discovered, that is in close running with my Thirsties AIO to be a favorite; the Diaper Rite All In One One size diaper.    I admit to being a bit of a “lazy” diaperer. I need the
easiest and fastest way to c...

The Dryer Bar and cloth diapers
  So I've been cloth diapering since 2010, and have diaper 4 1/2 children. I say 4 1/2 because when I started using cloth, one of the kids was only in night time diapers. So she counts as the 1/2. I have diapered my 2 boys and my twin girls. And will cloth ...

My Grandmother's Hooks
Almost 3 years ago, I lost my grandmother. I say I lost her,
but the family lost her. I took her death hard. Harder than I thought I would.
She’d been in a home for 2 years, suffering from complications of multiple
strokes. It was heartbreaking. After she p...
