“I Made That!” Monday – A Second Unsuccessful Grace

Today I’m going to share one of my sewing fails with you all – part of creating this blog was to be honest about the not-so-great makes too after all! I made my first Simple Sew Grace dress a while ago, and while it was too small to fit me (minor oversight) it turned out…… Continue reading “I Made That!” Monday – A Second Unsuccessful Grace

“I Made That!” Monday – A Triple Bill

I posted yesterday about how happy I was to be returning to crafting and blogging (two of my favourite hobbies!) and today I have a few things to share with you. I’ve been sewing and crafting sporadically through my mini-break and as I’ve not posted in a few months I thought I’d give a quick…… Continue reading “I Made That!” Monday – A Triple Bill

“I Made That!” Monday – Christmas Tote

Everyone that knows me, knows I’m a sucker for a bit of the festive spirit. This last week at work I’ve discovered a dedicated Christmas station on the radio and have been treating my colleagues to an hour or so festive fun a day. I love it! (Jury is out on them.. ha!) So when…… Continue reading “I Made That!” Monday – Christmas Tote

What I really…… Continue reading “I Made That!” Monday – Little Lace Headband or Getting my Mojo Back

“I Made That!” Monday – Chair Cushion Cover

A few weeks ago The Boy and I redecorated our kitchen. I used some pretty tartan-style fabric to make a table runner and matching curtain to hide our bin. I bought a bunch more of this fabric to make (also matching) chair cushion covers! Though I’ve only finished one so far – I thought I’d…… Continue reading “I Made That!” Monday – Chair Cushion Cover

“I Made That!” Monday – Baby Bunting

I’ve made bunting before. I love bunting. I think it’s super cute and like to make it as a baby gift for any new parents that I know. The Boy’s brother-in-law recently celebrated a new addition to their family, so: bunting time again! I found a pack of fat quarters in these adorable elephant prints and coordinating…… Continue reading “I Made That!” Monday – Baby Bunting
