Zippy Top with Sleeve Hack

Zippy Top Stripes

Ah, the Zippy Top. One of the easiest selfish sewing projects known to women. Always a delight, and since it is so simple, it is one that I’ve been wanting to switch up a little here and there, and today I’m sharing a quick sleeve hack (hack being a very, very loose term).

Zippy Top Hack

First, I made the same size as the voile one I made months ago, but this time I used a delightfully striped rayon […]

Pretty Peplum Top

Happy Peplum top

 

Oh, to sit at the sewing machine again. It’s been too long! This Pretty in Peplum top was the perfect jump into my creative mojo after such a crazy busy holiday season (and flu season… gotta love when that hits the house, right?).  We are thick in the bedlam that comes with moving, since we’re moving nearly across the country in just a couple of weeks. One of my tasks was to slim down the amount of fabric we move this time since it is much farther […]

DIY Gift Idea North Pole Matching Game

You guys! I’m all about a good DIY gift idea, especially for kiddos. This is so fun, we have been doing our best to distract the kids while finishing up last-minute to-do lists, and this DIY Matching Game has been the perfect way to keep the little kids out of our hair. My hair appreciates it ;). This would be a great stocking stuffer too, or a special game you pull out during the holiday season!

{Well, my site was hacked a few weeks ago but we’re back on board again! I want to share a few projects before I close up shop for the holidays!}

Olliblocks Fairy Tale Edition Christmas Gift Idea

The older my kids get, I feel like they are requiring gifts that cost a few more bucks than before, so great handmade gifts are a great alternative. The Olliblocks from Caravan Shoppe are becoming such a great go-to DIY gift idea! This set is the Fairy Tale pack, and with 4 princess-loving girls, […]

McCalls 6388: A New Top!

McCalls 6388 Button Top

I was not feeling like doing yet another load of dishes the other night, so I pulled out the McCalls 6388 pattern that I’ve had in the “kids patterns” box for awhile. I liked the grown-up look of the top, and I really loved how it looked in the cover photos sewn up in plaids. So, I pulled out the only plaid I have on hand that was actually meant for a coat (which they needed more than a top, but oh well) and sewed it up.

DIY Changing Pad Cover

Anna Maria Horner Changing Pad Cover

A while ago, I found a DIY Changing Pad Cover Tutorial over at Carissa Miss, and she found it from Prudent Baby. I had planned on getting rid of our changing table, but it somehow survived the move to Tucson and ended up in the baby’s room… and now I use it daily. Funny how that happens, right? Anyway, because we are so transitory right now and decorations are still boxed up, I wanted to make the room just a little […]

Ready To Pop Baby Shower

Ready To Pop Party Table

I meant to post this Ready to Pop Baby Shower a few weeks ago, oops! The photos are crummy, but sometimes dark rooms and a kit lens just sabotage great images. Anyway, let’s get onto the deets of this baby shower for a friend at my church who is having a boy after a couple girls!

Ready to Pop Food

Since my friend was due really soon, I thought a Ready To Pop theme would fit perfectly. I […]
