Sew a Crib Skirt


Crib SkirtAs I mentioned in my baby bath tub review post the other day, I finally completed Baby V’s Crib Skirt.  I purchased the fabric a month or two prior to her birth, but I just couldn’t find the energy to measure, cut, and sew.

So finally in her 11th week, I took some mommy time and left Baby V with daddy so I could get my sew on!

The theme for Baby V’s nursery has been a fiesta theme.  (Blog to come soon on whole room.) I knew that I wanted a solid teal/turquoise colored skirt, but could not find a single one in any local stores.  I found one that I could purchase online, but it would cost more than $60 with shipping!  Off to Pinterest I went to find out how to make my own crib skirt.

Easter Hop A Long Bunny


Hop A Long Bunny So, I believe the story behind this Hop A Long Bunny begins with the question of which came first, finding it through Pinterest or finding it through Facebook or did I like the Facebook page because of finding it through Pinterest?  Either way I came across this great bunny and thought it would be something I (a novice sewer) could make for my Baby Girl’s First Easter.

The pattern was created by The Sewing Loft and available for purchase on Etsy, under Bunny Sewing Pattern.

For Baby V, I used a Pale Baby Blue Swirl Fur from Joann’s and some pink fabric.  I think it was from Hancock.  (I’ll check out the info on it next time I go to the store and update the post with the info.) Oh, and I used fleece for the face and bunny tail. Read the rest of this entry

Sewing a Dog Bed


Dog BedI purchased my sewing machine in July so I could learn how to sew and make items for my upcoming baby.  After various baby projects for my friends and their newborns, I decided to focus on a different subject, my chicas.

Ever wondered what to do with old pillows?  This dog bed project from Joyful Abode seemed to be the perfect solution to my desire to recycle old pillows and provide comfort to my fur babies.



Items needed:

  • 2 pillows
  • 1 curtain panel
  • 1 mattress pad
