Jayhawk Sleeper

While I mull over my pattern choices for an upcoming wedding reception, I decided to go ahead and work on something: a newborn gown and baby bib! This t-shirt to newborn gown has to be one of my favorite upcycled projects… the problem with this one? Believe it or not, finding a Jayhawk shirt that […]

Change of Plans

This weekend I had plans on whipping up one of my latest e-pattern purchases, Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop’s Classic Footed Pajamas. Easton had expressed an interest in wearing a pair and combined with a pattern and fleece sale, I thought I had nothing to lose…. that is until the other day when we went shopping and […]

Rock Chalk

If you’ve followed this blog for awhile you’ve probably seen me mention that I’m a University of Kansas alum… hence, I’m a sucker for anything Jayhawk. I’ve made everything from boxers to baby gear with the same print for years (there are very few designs and they don’t seem to change often). So you can […]

2011 Year In Review

Last year I kept a journal of all the projects that I completed in one year. I really didn’t think that I could top what I did in 2010, but when I looked back at my notebook for this year, I was floored. I worked on 154 projects! Here’s some of the things I worked […]

Wet Bag

This weekend is my best friend’s baby shower. Over the past month I managed to make several baby items and even a matching basket, but after putting it all together, it just seemed to be missing something. So I racked my brain as to what I could make that not only matches the other items […]

Well, Finally!

While everyone has been busy sewing up patterns from the latest issue of Burda, I’ve been anxiously awaiting for mine to arrive. Thankfully, it came in the mail yesterday! I try to wait until the magazine arrives before I check out the styles, but since it arrived so late, I had already picked out my […]

1/2 Way There?

After steadily working on Easton’s costume, I finally have the ‘romper’ portion of the monkey finished: It actually took a lot longer than what I had anticipated to finish this up as there are quite a few steps to get to this point (and it doesn’t even look like I’ve made a dent in the […]

Thurday’s Links

It’s official, Taylor is finished with the school year and is on summer vacation. Besides all sorts of sports and swimming, I’m sure we’ll be doing some crafty projects – I plan on visiting the Crafty Crow for some fun kid friendly project ideas. This week I posted on Threadbanger about loving the fabric Robert […]

The Countdown Is On

One week to go….. That’s right, my due date is ‘officially’ one week from today! Of course, I’m not going to get my hopes up that he arrives before then (although, at my appointment today, the doctor wasn’t sure if I would make it to my next visit) because he seems very cozy in there! […]
