sewing habit. my second dress.

one piece sleeve. drew it after looking at one of phoebe's shirts.

the bodice. same for front and back. just cut a v-neck for the front.

ended up remeasuring phoebe before i cut the fabric. good thing i did. she needed like four more inches around the waste. what can i say? i'm a novice.

the finished product. probably should have shown you how i did the neckline. it was fabulous. and confusing. the turtleneck was separate. (and it's not a dickey.)

how ridiculously cute, right?

my first dress

the only frequently asked question:
did you use a pattern? most certainly. it was one of those easy patterns for amateurs and it was still a little tricky for me. necklines and arm holes were a new experience for me.

despite it being tricky, i made it in two sittings all within 24 hours. and, i'd do it again.

by the way, i made baby bedding almost a year ago

what my living room looks like when i'm in the middle of a project

the bumper and birdie sheet

the beginnings of a simple quilt. see the piping on the bumper? i put that on the quilt, too.

more of the same. i like it.

ummm...remember when i made shades for the boys??

I changed my mind. I took them down. I made these instead. I like them a lot better.
Now, I just need to paint their room. I'm hoping it gets done before 2010.

By the way, I used blackout liner on the back so that we can still put them to bed before 10pm during the Summer!!!

the essential nursing cover (ordering) post

Single fabric nursing covers are $20.
Reversible nursing covers are $32.

I love making them. And the ladies love wearing them.

If you need one, email me at

Here's the questions I usually ask:

When do you need your order?

What colors do you like?

Is this a gift?

How would you describe the style of one who's getting this sweet product???

After receiving the answers to these, I try to match you with 4 to 7 fabrics that appear to match your tastes and colors and what not. And we go from there...

That's the drill!

Two More Weeks at $15 and $30

I'm FINALLY adjusting my prices. But, you have two more weeks at these ROCK BOTTOM prices!!!

The single fabric nursing covers (very similar to the very popular Hooter Hiders) are going up by a mere Five Buckaroos to $20.

The reversible covers will be going up by only Two Buckaroos to $32 to adjust for the rise in fabric costs.

So, let it be understood: prices go up May 1, 2009. And just in case you weren't so sure about shipping. It's $5 shipped anywhere in the continental US.

down, but not out

I attempted doll clothes. Not only are they not as cute as American Girl clothes. (Those are AMAZINGLY cute!) I failed to read closely that the fabric was supposed to have give, like a jersey knit or something.

Anyway, I don't want to give up. Because, I'll tell you a secret. I've been dreaming about designing baby boy clothes for awhile. I don't know why every designer thinks that every mom wants to put a football or an excavator or a dinosaur on EVERY piece of clothing that her son wears!?!

So, I gotta practice making doll clothes. Since these didn't have any stretch, the cuffs could NOT get past the hands or feet of my neighbor's American Girl. Bummer. But, I'll learn.

...and then I'll make REAL baby clothes...

someday, maybe.
