My Recent Projects

I’ve been sewing again. A few things for Sarah and Curt’s little one who will be arriving in the next month or so!

A changing pad and burp cloth. Flannel. Loved the squirrels. I think Sarah was a little nervous when I asked her if she liked squirrels! 🙂


And a blanket. The brown fabric is flannel and I’m not sure what the green is… It’s kind of like minky, but kind of not. It’s just very very soft.


Then today, I wanted a blanket for Maria to keep in the car. So I went out in the horrible weather (not knowing how horrible it was), bought fleece and made this “No Sew Fleece Blanket”. It went super fast and cost only about $7 because I had a coupon. The only thing that could have been easier was maybe if I had fancy scissors like my mom’s that have a spring in them…


Tote Bags

I made these tote bags for 2 of my nieces for Christmas. (Filled with books!) They are both lined and have a zippered top. I’ve been thinking for weeks about how exactly to do it, and yesterday I figured it all out, and then made them. They are probably bigger then a 4 and 5 year old girl would need, but they can grow into them!

My Homemade Shopping Bag

I am working on perfecting a simple pattern for a re-useable grocery bag. I made one for Sarah in August for her birthday. Her’s had some cute purse handles on it… this one I just sewed some straps for handles, but I think the rest of the bag was a bit easier to make…  I have one more idea to tweak it a little more, and then I’ll try and write up a brief tutorial if that works better!   But for now here’s a picture of my bag… full of groceries.. (it holds a lot)
