Handmade Confessions - Guest Posting

Friday, August 23, 2013

Happy Friday!!

I'm wishing this Friday was happier around here, apparently our household got hit with a stomach bug. :( I'm going to be spending the day trying to keep the 3 of us who aren't sick, healthy and the sick one feeling better!

A bright spot though, I am excited to be over at Make It Handmade again today, participating in Palak's series called Handmade Confessions.

Head on over to see what I'm "confessing"!

Here's a hint...

Thanks for stopping by!

The Tinny Dress - Flipped

Thursday, August 22, 2013


I may or may not be a procrastinator... I squeeked in under the wire with my pattern flip for this month's Flip This Pattern over at Frances Suzanne! And it was a good one. I had sooo many ideas running through my head for ways to flip the Tinny dress, and I actually have another one planned that I want to make for O's birthday dress (which is in 2 weeks!!!). As you can tell, I just didn't have it together enough to get them both done for the series. :(

A Nursing Cover

Tuesday, August 20, 2013


I'm at that stage in life where at any given time there are friends around me who are having babies. And I love any excuse to do some baby sewing :)

A nursing cover is not exactly sewing for baby, but it is a perfect, fun, quick project that is very useful and pretty!

Sometime I need to sew something different and have it be a quick satisfying project. This nursing cover was just the thing. And it makes me so happy that a friend who just had a baby will get lots of use out of it!

Pineapple Salsa Recipe - For Canning

Monday, August 19, 2013


We are deep in tomato season here and this salsa is something that I make every summer with tomatoes from our garden. Normally peppers from our garden too, but seriously?!? Somehow my 15 plants managed to produce next to nada. So far I have had one jalepeno and one bell pepper. My banana peppers are doing ok-ish. I am no garden expert and I did what I could to help the poor plants but it was apparently not enough... I have never had a problem other years. I would stick them in the ground and they grew waist high and I had more peppers than I could handle! Oh well. There's always next year :)


This recipe is SO. EASY. Only chopping and mixing is required. I never even peel my tomatoes for this recipe. But if you prefer them peeled, than feel free!

Kid Pants With Piped Pockets

This post was originally published at Once Upon A Sewing Machine.

Having both a little boy and a little girl I can vouch for the fact that sewing for girls just seems to have more hype than sewing for boys. There are so many adorable sewing patterns out there for girls, but I'm seeing more and more for boys as well! And when it comes to basic patterns for boys, the customization options are endless, giving you LOTS of variety on just a simple basic pattern. Take this tee for example. Just a tiny bit of embellishment, and you have a custom tee that looks like it could come from a designer kids clothing company. Believe me, I saw one at Zara kids that gave me the inspiration to create that shirt. While I can't afford the clothing from the designer brands, I CAN do my best to recreate them for a lot less money. And it's SO FUN!!!
