Baby gift with lots of handmade love!

My baby sister is having a baby boy really soon!  We had her shower a few weeks ago, if you missed it, you can see it here!  Of course since my love language is gifts (particularly handmade gifts), I made a whole bunch of things for my new nephew! This is the basket that I […]

Fall Kids Clothes Week & some Halloween sewing

Fall Kids Clothes Week was last week – and while I didn’t get to all of the projects that I wanted to, I did manage to get a few things done for both kids! I have been wanting to upcycle a few of my husband’s shirts into shirts for the little man.  I used the […]

August Stuffie of the Month – Crocheted Aurora doll

Time for the August Stuffie of the Month!  This month I am featuring a crocheted stuffie pattern!  Princess Aurora by Ohana Craft. Since I actually started crocheting stuffed animals before I was sewing them, I thought reviewing a crochet stuffie pattern (also know as Amigurumi) would be a great addition to my stuffie of the […]

The pattern book that changed my life

My favorite stuffed animal designer is also an amazing craft business blogger –  Abby Glassenberg of While She Naps.  She is currently running a series on her blog talking to sewing/crafting people about the Pattern that changed their life!  This got me thinking about what my inspiration was for getting all crafty and diving into the […]

Puppy & Pony Crocheted hats

I have been sewing a lot lately which I really love, but I also like to crochet, and sometime when my sewing projects get overwhelming I crave the crochet hook!  After I finished my Christmas sewing projects last year (just before Christmas), I finally got to a few crochet projects I had been wanting to […]

Vance’s Birthday outfit

Vance’s birthday theme was Monsters!  I found an awesome Monster fabric and had to make him a pair of pants and shirt.  The pant pattern came from a book I got from a friend, Simple Sewing for Baby by Lotta Jansdotter when Olive was born, but I hadn’t actually used it until after Vance was born!  […]

Original Amigurumi

So I finally created a few original crocheted pieces!!  I made a few monsters for my kids!  I am currently working on a whole slew of monsters for Vance’s 1st birthday party – for the favors – but we will keep those under wraps for now.  But introducing jeni ro exclusives – one of a […]

More gifties!

So as I said in my first post back (a few minutes ago) I am really trying hard to focus on projects for my kids this year – I have a list a mile long of things I want to make for them.  But I did get in a few gift projects – mostly for […]

Crafty Christmas!

It was a crafty Christmas from the Robertson’s last year! I think I made about 90% of the gifts we gave. Yes, I am impressed with myself!! I am grateful for the money left in our childcard account since that is probably the only way I was able to get everything done – Olive got […]
