Organizing Sewing Patterns

How do you guys organize all your patterns? It seems like I've ended up with a lot of pdf patterns that I've bought online and printed off. I also have pattern pieces floating all around. I needed something more organized and an easy way to look up the pattern I was wanting to sew. I also needed a way to contain my patterns neatly (and kind of hidden) so my 2 year old daughter would quit pulling out a page here and there and spreading them through out the house! Read more »

Small Baby Security Blanket - DIY Tutorial

Here's a quick and easy baby security blanket that you can sew for your little one during their nap time. I first made a pink one of these small security blankets for my daughter when she was just a couple months old. I wanted something that she could cuddle up with but, not a huge blanket that I'd have to worry about her suffacating under. It's turned out to be the perfect size for her because now that she's walking (and carries her blanket with her everywhere) she doesn't trip on it. It's also a great size to throw in the diaper bag for trips. This blanket is only 16" x 16" so doesn't require much fabric. You might even have enough in your scrap pile to make it! Read more »
