So I am toying with the idea of doing some tutorials on my blog. I have never done one before but I think it is important to share the knowledge that you have! Would anyone even be interested in this??? They would be on some of my simple pieces like pillowcase dresses, burp clothes, bibs, etc.... Let me know... Also should have some cute pics in the next couple of days!

I am a super practical mom!! I like things that are cute but are wearable and I love pieces that can be worn a bunch! That is why I tend to like pillowcase dresses, they are cute, comfortable, and practical! They look cute with tights,jeans, and long sleeve shirts in the winter and in the summer all by themselves! As my girls grow they turn into shirts, I mean you can't beat that you really get your money's worth!
When I choose this fabric I thought it was super cute for valentine's day and a little unexpected but I also thought this would be super cute for spring and summer as well! I am loving how these pieces are turning out and just wanted to share a piece with you! Have a great day everyone!

I get asked a lot what are my favorite sewing tools or what do I use every time I sit down to sew? So here is my absolute must haves everyday by my sewing machine.
I know it seems like a lot of scissors but each one has a distinct job, my pinking shears is what I use to cut ALL my patterns! I use the little tiny curved ones for cutting out appliques and trimming thread, the other ones are used mainly to cut embroidery stabalizer, solvey, etc.... I have two seam rippers just like having the little one for some jobs. The safety pin is for pulling dress ties and elastic through. Everyone has to have a box of pins right?? The wooden dowel isn't really a sewing tool but I find it handy to turn ties right side out and it comes in handy pushing out corners and such. Last but not least I LOVE my little sewing square thingy! haha I measure everything with this little guy, and it was my grandmothers. (Which by the way is were I got the name for my buisness) she was a seamstress but passed away when I was young but I thought the name was fitting!! So there you have it everything I use to create cute little pieces!
What are your must haves by your machine?? Now this is not what is by my embroidery machine but that is a whole other post!!

A while back I decided it was time for the girls to start to share a room (so mommy could have a sewing room and finally get my stuff off the dining room table)! So we got them new bunk beds which to be honest scared me to death so for the first month or so the rule was Mia was not allowed on Syd's top bunk. However, I finally caved and after many turns up and down the latter with mommy watching I decided it was time! They were both soooooo excited they were having so much fun I had to snap a few pics! Lol these two crack me up and are truly the light of my life!!
