I also had the opportunity to test out the Nelia Top and Dress by Popolok Designs. My daughter absolutely loves this dress. She thinks the snaps up the front are awesome.
I added a little ruffle trim on the front to give it a little extra. This can be made as a shirt, a knee length [...]
I have been busy sewing and testing several new patterns for people recently. I figured I should probably show them off here too. :)
First off was the Knit Tee Dress by Whimsy Couture
We found the heart fabric on sale at Joanns a while back and she has been begging me to make her a dress [...]
I apologize for basically ignoring the blog for the past several months. There were some issues with the server and it was down for several weeks. Then life happened and I just got busy, etc.
So, the big thing that has happened is that my baby was born the end of February, and she [...]
I have been into babywearing since my son was born over 2 years ago. I started out using a homemade ring sling, and then fell in love with a Baby K’Tan for the newborn stage. Then as my son grew I started using a Mei Tai and a SSC (soft structured carrier). I loved [...]
It’s been a while since I’ve made any soap, but I wanted to do a wonderful castille (100% olive oil) soap to give away at Christmas. This soap needs a good 4-6 month cure to be at it’s best, so I had to get it done!

I have been an avid sewer for a while now, but quilting is something I never tackled. I did do some rag quilts, so I guess that counts, but since they were just basic squares sewn together, I never really thought of them as quilts. A friend of mine recently had a double tragedy where [...]
For my sister-in-law’s baby shower, I offered to make the cake. I had seen this Rubber Duck birthday cake on pinterest, and thought it would be perfect! It is basically a cake with Kit Kat bars on the side and M&M’s on the top so it looks like duck sitting in a water barrel.
I went [...]
I use my camera for a lot of things. I got a Nikon d40 a few years ago and loved it! But not that long ago it fell off my table onto me while I was sitting on the floor. I caught it before it hit the ground, but the lens would no longer zoom [...]
My daughter’s birthday is right around Mother’s Day, so we usually have a joint Mother’s Day/birthday celebration on Mothers Day with my in-laws. I volunteered to make the cake.
I decided to try out this awesome rose cake I saw on pinterest. It looked pretty simple and didn’t seem to be too hard. Let me tell you it [...]
I know I am almost a month behind in posting this, but I’ve been super busy with some awesome new adventure I’ve been working on (more details to come in the future!)
Last year for my daughter’s 4th birthday I made her a skirt and appliqued a 4 on a shirt. She loved it [...]
