Speaking of blue dresses, I just made my daughter a new dress. She is currently fascinated by dinosaurs (what almost 4-year-old isn’t?). I found a gorgeous dino dress from Boden (dinos for girls!), but was feeling that I could make something for less than the $35 price tag. I also liked the idea of another… Continue reading Blue Dino Dress!
I finally finished my blue octopus dress, using Cotton & Steel Bluebird Octopus in sapphire. I cut out this pattern way back in May, and just didn’t get around to sewing it up until now.

What you will need for a baby quilt size: 1 jelly roll of patterned… Continue reading Chevron Quilt How-To
A little over a year ago, I decided that I needed to start quilting. Something I’ve always wanted to do, but seemed daunting. I tried it once when I was expecting my daughter, and I didn’t know what I was doing, and cut a million tiny squares and they were not all the same size.… Continue reading My First Quilt!
