DIY Fall Burlap Wreath

  I’m in love!  Fall is already one of my favorite times of year…why?  The colors!  I love love love the browns, reds, oranges and yellows.  This was certainly a labor of love for me!  I found the inspiration from Top This Top That’s blog http://topthistopthat.blogspot.com/2012/03/easiest-burlap-wreath-you-will-ever.html This was my finished burlap wreath. Debating on my contrast fabrics. […]

DIY Wide leg pajama pants

This has been one of those “I must make!” projects!  I saw this pin (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/114560384240946968/) very long ago and I almost never make something for me specifically.  Well time to get to that! I found this tutorial on Living Well Spending Less http://www.livingwellspendingless.com/2012/12/20/easy-to-sew-pajama-pants/#_a5y_p=729010.  I decided to do one thing different because of the amount of fabric I […]

Rainy Day: DIY Changing Table Cushion Cover

Rainy Day: DIY Changing Table Cushion Cover This project was not one on a whim.  This was “it’s midnight, the changing pad cover is now wet, go to grab another and realizing it doesn’t exist”!  Yep.  That was us.  When you’re preparing for a new baby, you just are not going to remember everything.  It’s […]

Nesting: Crocheted chevron blanket with flowers

I have never been a crochet person. I find knitting to be much easier, but I also do not like to feel defeated by something. When I was poking around on Pinterest, I found this pattern http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/rickrack-rainbow-baby-blanket and started asking my mom (the master crochet woman in my life) how difficult she thought it’d be. To […]

Nesting: Cloth Diapers AI2

I would love to say that I picked up these materials and immediately had these figured out & perfect…BUT not so much.  Now that I do have it figured out I don’t understand how I didn’t get it at first.  It’s easy though.  Everyone likes something different.  I have really taken to a cloth diaper […]

Nesting: Swaddle blanket

A while back a friend of mine asked me to make a swaddle blanket for a baby shower gift.  I had never seen one like this before but I (the worst swaddler ever!) was intrigued!  Here’s the original…  http://prudentbaby.com/2010/05/baby-kid/new-improved-diy-swaddle-blanket-2/   I made some changes to it just out of necessity and working through the thought […]

Nesting: Car seat blanket

There are so many ideas out there…so many ways to customize a certain concept.  I sat down and decided to combine a handful together to better suit our needs for a car seat blanket. Inspiration from… http://ahandmadechildhood.blogspot.com/2012/01/nesting-35-hooded-car-seat-blanket.html http://www.running-w-scissors.com/2011/03/car-seat-blanket.html http://www.imperfecthomemaking.com/2012/01/tutorial-hooded-car-seat-blankies.html My main concern with making one of these was the overheating issue we have had with […]

Nesting: Washcloths & Burp Clothes

I had a bit of terry cloth leftover from other projects and in my nesting process was desperate to find something to do with it for Baby Hannah.  While searching around on Pinterest, I found two different projects that really interested me.  It’s the two things I feel you never have enough of for baby…washcloths […]
