Holiday Dress for Baby!

One of the things I dreamed about when I found out I was having a girl, was the Christmas and Easter dresses I would sew for her- but real life with a baby/toddler often gets in the way of realizing these dreams- especially if I wait until the last minute! That’s why I was so…

Rich People Wear Matching Pajamas

So I’ve always had this fantasy in my head, that when I really had some extra money, like lots and lots of extra money, that I’d have a whole wardrobe full of matching pajamas. And that not only would I wear these amazing matching PJs every night, but that my kids and husband would have…

“What can WE do?”

I’ve been trying to teach my boys more about current events, now that they are almost 7 and have the maturity to understand more of the bigger picture outside their small circles. One thing we covered this week was the devastation brought about by Hurricane Harvey, the local fires (which are VERY obvious to us,…

Straight into Homeschool

It’s a social media tradition to post photos of your kids on the first day of school, holding a sign with their age, grade, and future aspirations. Being a sucker for all things mom-corny, I love these photos, and I wanted to re-create them in a special way for our first day of homeschool. Of…

Challenge yourself! Birch Button Up Release, Review and GIVEAWAY!

     I’ve gone on  and on about sewing with wovens (see my Wovens 101 post HERE)….but I hadn’t made the most obvious woven garment: a collared shirt! Right up there with swimwear (conquered!), real jeans (yikes- not yet!) and a formal dress (I’d love the challenge but I’d never wear it), sewing a fully featured…

Camo is a Country Girl’s Bling!

I’ve never been huge on camo. Or pencil skirts, for that matter. I’m a pretty practical dresser, so most of my #momlife wardrobe consists of shirts in colors that don’t show baby food stains and pieces that can go from standing to sitting criss-cross-applesauce without any adjustment in ten seconds flat.

I’d never ordered custom board short fabric before, but since the retail options are SO limited, I got curious. I…
