Mini Mini Quilts

Here is another one of those blog posts that I started writing weeks ago and never finished. Seems to be the norm around here! Story of my entire life right now… A few months ago, I got an email from Kristy of Quiet Play. (No big deal, only one of my very favorite quilters! Her…

Boba Fett and Blueish Hair

I’ve got this habit of starting to write blog posts, and then letting them sit in the drafts folder for all eternity. I don’t even remember when I started “writing” this one! I think it was 2 weeks ago? I think that’s how long ago I dyed my hair… I guess it was mostly because…

Craft Swaps

I’ve found myself sort of obsessed with Instagram craft swaps lately. And by obsessed I mean I’ve signed up for about a dozen different ones. I love making things for other people, and I love getting fun handmade things in the mail! So really, there is nothing not to love. Occasionally you do end up…

A Skeleton Dress

Last weekend I finally got up the courage to open my craft room door and start cleaning up the disaster waiting for me. It’s been bad before, but it was BAD. I don’t think a single thing in there was where it was supposed to be. Anyway, I suckered Shaun into helping me straighten up…

Star Wars Junebug

It seems like all of my posts lately are going to start with “A few weeks ago…” Hah! I just have not been in much of a blogging mood lately. But look at this dress I made a few weeks ago! Juniper had been bugging me to make her a Star Wars dress for forever.…

Warm Things

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you *drumroll* the ugliest rice warmer bag things ever! (Seriously, what are these things called? Juniper just calls them “warm things”, I’ll go with that.) I have been meaning to sew the kids their own Warm Things so they’d stop stealing mine. We finally made them the other night, and…

Bomb Bag for my Little Link

When your sweet tiny Zelda-loving kiddo looks up at you on Christmas Eve and says “I op hoho iv me a bomb bag anna no-nang”, you just have to give in. (You also chuckle inside because that kid speaks his own language! He said he hopes Hoho gives him a bomb bag and a boomerang.)…

DIY Invitation Sleeping Bags

A couple of weeks ago I got to work on a fun project. My friend’s daughter is having a slumber party and she asked me to design the invitations. Then a quick Photoshop project turned into sewing a dozen tiny sleeping bags! It just so happened that this silly little green rabbit thing fit perfectly…

Halloween Costumes!

Behold! Our amazing Halloween costumes! Man oh man, we had maybe a little too much fun planning and making (and wearing!) our costumes this year. It’s too bad Ganondorf had to work and didn’t get to go trick-or-treating with us. Well, actually that might have ended up being a good thing, because Flynn would most…

{Kid’s Clothes Week} Day Five

This week has been awesome for me. I don’t get to spend as much time with my sewing machine as I would like, life is just so exhausting and by the time the kids are in bed I just want to pass out on the couch! But this week, I’ve really enjoyed spending almost every…
