“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 – Little Lace Headband or Getting my Mojo Back

Just a little one today. I mentioned yesterday about how I’m struggling with my crafty mojo right now. I suspect it has something to do with the fact that I started in on making some clothes, and it takes so much longer than small little makes that I lose patience and motivation. What I really…… Continue reading “I Made That!” Monday – Little Lace Headband or Getting my Mojo Back

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

“I Made That!” Monday – Kitchen Kitsch

I’ve not been around much the last couple weeks, because we’ve been single-mindedly decorating our kitchen! We don’t have enough money to have a whole new kitchen so unfortunately the unsightly cupboards and units are staying for now, but they’re not so offensive to me now that the rest of the room is fresher. Have…… Continue reading “I Made That!” Monday – Kitchen Kitsch
