With my children’s outgrown clothes, I divide them into four piles: save for future, give to friends, donate to charity, and not-sure. The not-sure pile usually has clothes that I like, but are stained and can’t be given to friends or charity. Do you have a pile like this? It feels wrong to just throw [...]
For my son’s first birthday [...]
Let’s face it. Babies + Food = Big Mess. This is where a big bib comes into play. I wanted to share two great patterns/tutorials for some oversized bibs that are helpful to parents as baby learns hand-mouth coordination.
First, the “Bapron.” From “Craftiness is Not Optional.”
For Christmas, I mentioned to my mom my desire for a few sewing-related items that I thought would be useful. She graciously obliged with some new presser foot attachments and an iron. I’m now calling them my “essential sewing supplies” – i.e.- how did I sew without them before?
First, The Walking Foot: The walking [...]
We received a crocheted baby “cocoon” or “snuggle sack” or “papoose” as a gift from my uncle. We’ve loved using it because our son is tough to swaddle sometimes. He’s a kicker. With this, his feet are always covered up, keeping him warm. While this came from a local woman in Schuyler, VA, I had [...]

This isn’t the full tutorial, but I will explain how I made it, and more importantly, I will give you the dimensions and [...]
At the beginning of my daughter’s life, in the breast-fed baby stage, we used a majority of cloth diapers and never decided to purchase a diaper genie. As she now approaches two, well past the breast-fed stage, we’ve made the switch to disposable diapers. But we still haven’t purchased the “genie.” I’ve figured out how [...]
Burp cloths are a new baby necessity. The designer burp clothes are so popular; I have some for my daughter that I love, but they are monogrammed, so while I will probably still use them around the house for this upcoming baby, I knew I needed some more… to avoid confusion, of course. Good thing [...]
After making my flannel swaddling blanket, I decided to make an infant carrier cover from the same flannel fabric. It matched the new baby car seat carrier perfectly, so I couldn’t resist. Wanna make one too? Keep reading for the tutorial…
