New Shirt

I just love this new shirt- a pattern I borrowed from a friend of mine. I thought it was so cute. Unfortunately, Katie was as excited about it as I was, but did wear it after some coaxing.

Puppet Theatre

Last year I made this puppet theatre from an idea I found in a book. I found the pattern to have too many details, and thus began to stray from the original idea. I also made a bag so that it can roll up and store easily. Katie pulled it out the other day and I finally remembered to take a picture. She was using two puppets my Grandmother Lunsford knitted for her. She has had so much fun as the puppeteer!

Nap Mat Cover

I saw a nap mat for sale in Charlotte over the weekend and upon arriving home, decided to try to make my own. I used fabric that my daughter chose (Ariel) and a KinderMat, which I covered. What do you think?

Baby Wipes and Diaper Holders

I saw a friend with a neat baby wipes/diaper holder. I thoought I would make up a few of them and add a matching burp cloth to the set. What do you think?

Girl's Dresses

I love making "pillowcase" dresses. No, they are not made out of pillowcases, but they are as versatile as a pillowcase! These dresses are cool during the summer and, when worn with a shirt, are great for the winter too. I always make hair bows that match the dress fabric. Sometimes I even make a baby doll dress out of leftover fabric. I usually make several sizes out of one print of fabric. They are machine washable and already preshrunk.

Drink Coaster Sets

I've sewn up just a few of these coaster sets. They are fun to make- especially seasonal ones!

Drink Wraps

Wrap up your drink to keep it cool! They work well with most cans, plastic bottles and glass bottles. I've made a lot of these in different fabrics.

Reusable Notebook Cover

Reusable composition and small notebook covers are great for dressing up the typical black and white composition notebook. I have really enjoyed mixing and matching colors while making these!


These headbands are great for holding your hair back in the summer. They are reversible- essentially two in one! When they become dirty you can just toss them in with your washing machine! I've made several for my niece, friends, and myself.

Octopus to Love

An octopus to love on...aren't they cute? My grandmother actually makes these and many other creatures in two sizes- mommy or baby.

Crayon Rolls

These crayon rolls are great for kids in the car or anywhere! The crayons stay in organized and in their place- not all over your car or your dog's mouth!
