Sewing stretchy fabric isn’t so bad when one uses the proper needle (ball point). I made my first pair of DIY baby legs from a funky pair of knee socks from Target. We are taking our first plane ride with the baby on Friday, and I thought the leggings would facilitate diaper changes while keeping [...]
Thank goodness for the Fat Quarter Shop’s Coming Soon Page – I troll it every once in a while so I know what I don’t want to miss! And Riley Blake isn’t a manufacturer I normally gravitate toward…but I think I will for this collection!
How often does your kiddo have a fabric collection [...]
Ooh, it is nice to have crafty bloggy friends! Generally speaking, I’m known as the crafty one among my friends, and am the giver of handmade gifts. However, I generally don’t receive many handmade gifts. Thus, I was pleasantly surprised to get a fun package for little Kit in the mail last week from Ronit [...]
Thanks to my awesome husband, combined with the fact that I’ve been pumping and he was able to feed the baby, I was able to finish up the baby quilt for Kit last night! It’s definitely not perfect, especially the machine binding, but I’m glad it’s done and I’m sure this is the first of [...]
Life with Kit has been going well – she usually has at least one 3-4 hour stretch of sleep at night, which is fantastic. My teenage & early 20s self would have never dreamed that I would be excited to have 4 hours of sleep in a row, but that’s the new reality in the [...]
First photos are over on her blog (guess who was right about gender?? lol). More details to follow, but let’s just say everything was fast & furious!
And no baby yet – honestly, we’re hoping Kit stays put for a couple more weeks. But you are more than welcome to go & laugh at my complete ineptitude as a pregnant chick.
One of the bindings I sewed up a few weeks ago went onto a 30th Birthday quilt for my good friend [...]
We are exactly 3 months away from Kit’s estimated arrival! (aka, it’s getting’ real)
Apparently baby bumps elicit all sorts of random comments from total strangers. I didn’t really appreciate this phenom until about a month ago.
I inevitably am asked what the baby’s sex is, and can pretty effectively kill the conversation with an [...]
I’m nearly done with bees and swaps before my self-imposed hiatus that will end no sooner than October 1st. My goal is to focus on finishing some of my started projects, and add in some sewing for baby Kit.
Some items on Kit’s list:
A quilt or two. DUH! How could I not?? Even though [...]
Clothing is sort of hard to make! Especially pants – that whole crotch seaming stuff is sort of confusing. And clothes for tiny humans are even more difficult because they’re so…tiny!
However, tiny human clothes are especially cute and adorable, even without tiny humans filling them out.
I traced out the 0-3 months and [...]
