Quilting for Craft Hope (Part 2)

Well, we did it! We finished our quilts from last week! We had lots of fun finishing them up last night. (Lindsay’s turned out way cuter than mine.) I’ve got them all ironed and packaged up on my desk and I’ll be mailing them (along with a handful of other packages I have been hoarding)…

Crafty Night! Quilting for Craft Hope

Last night my friend Lindsay came over for a little bit of crafty fun. We started working on our quilts for the current Craft Hope project, quilts for wildfire victims in the Western United States. Basically we spent last night cutting out all of our fabric and trying to figure out what size to sew…

Strawberry Dress

I got to do some sewing this weekend! It felt good to blow the dust off my machine and make some pretty things. I bought this fabric at a yard sale a few months ago. After sewing some new curtains for our kitchen window, I had enough leftover to sew a pretty new dress for…

Heart Shorts

I made these shorts for Juniper a couple of years ago when she was itty bitty. There was a matching shirt too. The shirt fit her great, the shorts… not so much! They were enormous! I just found the outfit in a box while I was organizing my craft room the other night. I had…

Some Finished Bucket Hats

I brought nine finished hats to church today to give to Laura. I still have a bunch I need to finish! I thought it would be cute to take a picture of the kids with all of the hats piled on their heads. Of course, they’re a couple of goofballs! And Juniper got a very…

Bucket Hats Tutorial

Well here it is! I finally put together a tutorial for the bucket hats I have been working on for Laura. These reversible hats are given to cancer patients, and they area really easy to sew up. Once you’ve made one you might as well make a dozen. If you want to make some and…

Bucket Hats

I’ve been working on more bucket hats for Laura. She gave me enough fabric to make 20 hats, and I might make a few more with more boy-ish prints. So far I’ve got twelve of them ALMOST done, and I’d like to finish them up and give them to Laura this Sunday. Lindsay came over…

Dirty Diaper Surprise

For Easter this year I thought it would be really fun to make some surprise eggs for the kids. (I got the idea from sarahjanestudios.com. Hers are so cute!) So I bought lots of cute little toys, and Lindsay and I got together for some crafty time. We ended up with a bunch of dirty…

Fabric Storage (Or Lack Thereof)

As I’m nearing the end of this freelance project I’ve been working on for the past few weeks, I’m getting pretty excited about having more time in my craft room. I miss hanging out down there after the kids are asleep. But before I get to spend some quality time with my sewing machine, there…

Hipster Monkey

Yesterday was pretty great. I got to spend lots of time in my craft room with a good friend, talking about all sorts of random stuff and making mini hipster clothes for a sock monkey. Skinny jeans, a slouchy beanie, and a pair of mini Toms, that is going to be one well-dressed monkey! And…
