Can you believe it - we're on our 12th month of UnTutorials! Un-Tutorials are those sneaky pins that lead you to believe there's a tutorial behind them - and then there's not. Or maybe there's a bunch of pictures with no real instructions that you can understand. Those kinds of pins are so common that I gave them a name and started a Pinterest board.Read More

We recently took a trip to the beach (all dressed up, lol!) to get our family photos taken by the talented Nathaly Blaylock.
It's been 7 years since we had professional photos taken - the last time Cadie was just a baby!
I love these photos so much that I wanted to share even though there's very little about sewing in them. So I will tell you about the alteration I made to Chloe's dress and finally share my opinion on Made-by-Rae's Washi Dress.Read More
I've been sewing a long time and I've received lots of wonderful birthday and Christmas presents. I've also received a lot of crummy ones (cheap sewing kits, anyone?). So I thought it would be fun to share with you some of my favorite gifts... ideas for what you can give your sewing buddies. Or maybe something for you to share with others so they know what you get you, wink wink!Read More
I was shopping at Macy's a few days ago and I saw the most adorable white fuzzy owl ornaments on one of their trees. You might have seen them and know what I am talking about. They were crazy expensive - more than I've ever spent on Christmas ornaments before, but they were so pretty and cute that I walked around with two of them in my hands for about half an hour before I could exert all my willpower to put them back.Read More
Who's going shopping??? I haven't decided if I'm going out to brave the brick and mortar shops or if I'm just going to sit on my couch and shop in in my jammies eating leftover turkey and stuffing... but I plan on getting some deals!Read More

I finally got it done for you... all the testing and tweaking of a pattern to make the darling little coin pouch that we saw on Pinterest - but the photo instructions left so much to chance!Read More
One of the first things I ever learned to sew was doll clothes. I think I was about 8. My family never had a lot of money (9 kids!), so I had to make my own. I cut up clothing that was destined for goodwill and made clothes for my stuffed dolls, stuffed animals, and even my younger siblings, lol!Read More
Pair a thoughtful handmade gift with a favorite gift card and your stockings are stuffed:)Read More
Here you go! I sewed up this Pin that said it was a tutorial, but not really. It was just a few pictures stacked up with just a few words. To prevent another Pinterest fail, I experimented with different fabrics and different materials for the inside.Read More
A couple weeks ago the Primary President (children's group leader) in our church asked me if I would sew 'CTR Towels' for her to give each of the children who get baptized next year. 'CTR' stands for 'Choose the Right,' something to help them remember the promises they make at baptism. And, of course, we hope they will use the towel to dry off with after their baptism.Read More
