Master Bedroom Makeover

It’s done!!!!  It’s more of a mini-makeover but since we’ll be moving again sometime this year I didn’t want to paint the walls or anything major.  We also plan to buy new bedroom furniture when we move since I’ve had this set since college.  Except for the platform bed, which my handy hubby made!  The […]

Little Flower Child Sundress

I am so excited to share this dress tute with you for two reasons. One, it’s for Spring which is just around the corner. Yay!  And secondly, most of the tutorials I create are inspired by items I see in a magazine, online, while out shopping, etc.  but this dress I dreamt up from scratch […]

Outfits Made using Circle Skirts

There are so many variations of clothing items you can make using a simple circle skirt.  My favorite tute for a basic circle skirt pattern can be found here.  Each of the following are based around the circle skirt.  For the dresses, I simply add a few inches in length to accomodate the empire waistline. […]

You & Me Wall Décor

This was the first Christmas in a long time where I was truly surprised by several awesome gifts!  I got a Serger and a Silhouette and I am one lucky, happy girl.  We just got back in town a day ago and I couldn’t wait to bust open the Silhouette and make my first project. […]

Baby Booties and Slippers

I Think Sew is home of some adorable patterns for shoes and purses.  Here are a few things I’ve made using her patterns. First up, these adorable 3-Button Baby Booties.  I did these in corduroy with flannel lining. And this pair I did in fleece with flannel lining. Then, there are these adorable baby/toddler slippers.  I found […]

Pattern Remix: The Kyla Dress Pattern

One of the first patterns I used was the Kyla Dress by Frog Legs and Ponytails.  I love that it’s reversible which means you have no exposed seams, so if you don’t own a serger (I didn’t at the time) this is an especially great pattern.  It’s also where I learned how to make bias […]

Braided Pull-Apart Bread

I love making my own breads and pizza crusts.  Something about the smell of the yeast when you’re mixing the dough is so “homey”.  This is a recipe a friend gave me and it’s my go-to bread for the holidays or when we’re hosting a dinner get-together since it makes two loaves.  It’s so good […]

I made this Snap Wrap Remix Dress from Me Sew Crazy last year and I just love how cute it came out: Normally, I never like to share a post without a pic of a child actually wearing the dress/clothing item but I sadly waited too long to try this on my daughter.  I went […]
