Baby Girl Sundress

Today’s project was a cute sundress that I found a tutorial for online.  This one was super easy to do!  Here is the tutorial that I used.

I changed two things from the directions.  I added bias tape to the hem and used the same bias tape to make the straps.  I love the little birds on the fabric! So cute!

Baby Jean Skirt

I have 6 days until I am induced and have to pass the time somehow… so sewing it is!

I found a very simple tutorial online to make an infant jean skirt and it looked easy enough so I decided to give it a try.  And it sure was easy peasy!   I found the tutorial at KojoDesigns.  It was a guest post by Jill.  Here is the tutorial that I used to make this cute baby skirt.


Now I just need a cute lil model to put it on!

Baby A’s first UT dress!

I’ve had this fabric remnant for a while now and never knew what to do with it.  I knew I wanted to make something University of Tennessee related but never found the right project.  The fabric remnant was just a little too small to make me something.  So when we found out baby was a girl I knew exactly what to make!

I used New Look pattern # 6576.

I didn’t add the appliques, just sewed the dress without them.

And it came out super cute and it was super easy!
Here is a picture of my finished product!


I am so pleased with how it came out!  Now I have to find other cute things to sew her in 6 days before she gets here!

I made another wallet!

Remember the wallet I made last year?  Well I made another one this weekend.  It was so much easier doing it the second time around, since I was familiar with what I had to do.  Last time I made a black and white one to match my black purse, this time I made a brown one since I had gotten a brown Coach purse for Christmas from the hubs!  This time I used a different snap closer than last time and that was much easier as well. 

If you would like to view the tutorial that I used just click the link to the last time I posted.  Here are a couple of pictures of what it looks like!


I love how it turned out and I’m please with my fabric choices!

My Picture Wall

I have wanted to start a picture wall in my house for quite some time now.  A few weeks ago I finally got around to starting my wall o’pictures.  I bought the saying in the center from the Dollar Store and collected old picture frames from around the house or I bought a couple from Dollar Store as well.  I put my wall in the middle of the hallway in between the master bedroom and the loft.  All my frames are black or black/silver for uniformity. 
Here is just a sneak peek of my picture wall.  There are no pictures in the frames as of yet since I am still working on finding the right pics to go in each frame. 



I love how it is coming along.  I can’t wait to fill it with pictures and even add more frames to it later on down the line.
