Pattern for Baby Towel Apron

Make drying off a slippery wet baby easy with my pattern for Baby Towel Apron! Easy to sew.

I don’t really enjoy sewing, but I have made a couple things in anticipation of our little one. We don’t have a bathroom counter to speak of and I was wandering how I would dry off and dress the baby after giving a bath. Trying to pick up a wet, slippery, squirming little one and wrap them in a towel before leaving the bathroom seemed like a nightmare. Then I saw a cute idea on Pinterest…. (gotta love that site!)

How to Make a Cloth Diaper ~What we did

How to make a cloth diaper. How it worked out for us.

Long before started trying to have kids, I read a blog post about cloth diapering. I realized that today’s cloth diapers are nothing like what my mom used. So started my research on cloth. One thing I wanted to know was how to make a cloth diaper. After doing a little reading on it, I decided that I didn’t like sewing well enough to try making cloth diapers. As well, I learned that there were many different styles of cloth […]

Creative Exchange

Orange

The beginning of this month, I signed up to take part in a creative exchange. I was partnered with Cat from Stuff I Love, and it was a lot of fun getting to know her better. We sent a couple emails back and forth asking questions. Then I started stalking her blog, probably read every post for the past year or so. Then it was her pinterest boards. I actually got somewhere, there! The thing is, I had learned a […]

A Swimsuit Makover

Modest swimsuit makover

Every summer begins with me making sure my swimsuit fits right.  The way I’ve gained weight lately the chances were slim that my old one would fit. Then of course comes the issue of finding a new one that fits nice, is modest, and don’t make me look like a granny. Can you say picky much? Every one’s idea of modest is a little different. I have to be able to swim in my suit, so no sleeves and not […]

After spending some time on Pinterest,  I found my inspiration. You […]
