Baby Bib with Snaps Tutorial

It seems like it is the season for baby showers! I had a couple baby showers to go to a few weeks ago, have another one here in a couple more weeks and have a couple friends that just found out they have babies on the way. This baby bib tutorial is an easy gift to sew for baby shower gifts or your own little one. These bibs are super absorbant because they are backed with terry cloth. The snap closure also helps them stay put on your baby when they learn how to rip the velcro bibs off!

Cute New Pleated Wristlet

Look at this cute pleated wristlet I made this weekend! I'm so excited about it! I used Amy Butler Lotus Morning Glory fabric for the outside and the lining is Amy Butler Polka Dots in matching blue and gray. I made this wristlet using a Keyka Lou pattern. I really love her patterns. The have great directions that are simple and easy to follow. Not all of them are for beginners though so it helps if you have sewn a few things before attempting them. I didn't time how long it took me to make it but it wasn't more than a couple hours. Definitely do-able during a couple naptimes! Read more »


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 »
