Carpenter Star Quilt

Solid Carpenter Star Quilt

I’ve been doing quite a bit of quilting lately! I have two Twin-size quilts out to be long-arm quilted right now, but while I was waiting for those to come back I needed a fast and small project to work on. The modern quilting mantra has been “go solids or go home” lately, which is totally something I can handle! I decided to make a small version of this Carpenter Star Quilt, and in purple. People either love or hate purple, I am in the love […]

A new month, a new Visiting Teaching message, which means more¬†Visiting Teaching Printables! April’s attribute of Christ is Without Guile or Hypocrisy. Being perfect as He was, we can learn how to be pure in heart.

Flutter Top Free Pattern and Tutorial

Well, hello friends! ¬†I’ve had this Flutter Top Pattern in my drafts for… weeks now. I felt like it was still too cold up here in the Northern Hemisphere, but since temps are slowly working their way up, it was time to share! It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a tutorial around here. This top is really a cute twist on a basic t-shirt, still comfortable but with a dash of interest at the sleeve.

Triangle Block Cheat Sheet Printable by the Crafty Cupboard

For the longest time now, I’ve been making my HST’s and QST’s based off of a little piece of printer paper with scribbled notes on block size vs. cut square sizes so I wouldn’t have to do the math. Last night as I once again referred to it, I decided it was long past due to make a little cheat sheet that I could keep out and wouldn’t be such an eyesore! I made a Triangle Block Cheat Sheet Free Printable for […]

High-Low Hem Top

Hgh-Low Top by the Crafty Cupboard

I had the itch to sew something for myself the other day, so I pulled up my folder of PDF patterns. My “must-sew” list is a mile long, but with only a little bit of time and fabric, I wanted to stick with something easy and satisfying, so I ended up following Melly’s tutorial (+free pattern) for a high-low hem top. I don’t know if I can break from the easy tops, I just love them!

March Visiting Teaching Printable

Our church has a message for women every month to share with each other and exchange uplifting thoughts about the topic. This year, every month’s focus is on one attribute of Christ, and March happens to be Patience. I’ve made some Visiting Teaching Printables to help keep the message fresh throughout the month/year!

March Visiting Teaching Printables

The first is a short quote from the message, but it is so profound! “Patience is not simply enduring; […]

Rainbow Birthday Party

Rainbow Birthday Party Backdrop

Right before we moved (like, the week before) my oldest daughter turned 8 years old, and she requested a Rainbow Birthday Party. That is her favorite color: rainbow. Call her indecisive, or all-inclusive, but she loves all things rainbow. Luckily we had so much to choose from when it came to food and decorations because you can basically pick any color of anything and it would work just fine, which is what I needed with all the craziness of moving and such. We used white balloons for […]

Get Your Sparkle On Framed Print

I have been slowly collecting art pieces for my girls’ rooms when someday we have our own house, and I wanted to add my own mom-made inspiration as well. It seemed appropriate that my girly girls would want something to remind them to SPARKLE! So, I worked up this “Get Your Sparkle On” print for them.

Get Your Sparkle On Print


I used watercolor for the blue background, and liquid gold leaf for the “sparkle.” […]

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 […]
