Maternity Tank with Banded Bottom

maternity tank with banded bottom.

This maternity tank is very similar to this striped tank I made last year. I wore that striped shirt a LOT. And I would wear it a lot this summer, too…but I’m 6.5 months pregnant.

Rhubarb-Strawberry Pie Recipe

Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie. That was never something that sounded very tasty to me. However, a few years ago, I tried making a rhubarb-strawberry pie. And it is surprisingly good!

Sewing for Baby: Bibs with Handmade Bias Tape

bibs bias tape

Making a bib for a baby is nothing new. Nothing exciting. But hand-me-down bibs do get stained. And when they start to look as stained as the ones our new baby would have to wear, it never hurts to have a few new ones.

Aztec Hoodie Vest: Pattern Testing for See Kate Sew

I’m sure you’ve heard of the blog See Kate Sew. A few weeks ago, I was so excited when she asked me to test her new pattern for the Aztec Hoodie Vest!

So I got to make my littlest cutie pie a hoodie! It’s got pockets (I’ve never made anything with pockets before!!!), an oversize hood, a zipper and is fully lined.

Fuzzy and Fleecy Bear Hats

I shared this tutorial for making fleece hats with bear ears a few months ago. When it was cold. Now it is summer, but I decided to make some more fleece hats. I'll give some for my church to donate to the local hospital and probably keep one for our new addition, arriving in late September.

Simple Baby Quilt Tutorial

finished chevron quilt (125)

Have I mentioned we’re expecting our third child?
Perhaps I’ve neglected to share that news.

Or maybe you noticed in my post about the pleated chevron bags last week…I am looking pregnant.
We’re very excited…right now I’m about 22 weeks into this pregnancy. Too early to nest, but I’ve been thinking about some things I’d like to make this baby.
