Baseball Themed Coffee Cozy and No Shame in the Crochet Game

This was my attempt at a baseball coffee cup cozy.  I made it in San Francisco Giants colors as a gift request for a baseball fan.  Sometimes the smallest projects are the most challenging! The tiny "baseball" was tough, but it looks really cool! My husband and I like to getaway from our daily grind… Continue reading Baseball Themed Coffee Cozy and No Shame in the Crochet Game

Crochet Tiny Bows

Thought I would finally share these tiny crochet bows.  There is nothing super crazy or special about how I made them.  Just your typical crochet rectangle which I cinched in the middle to create the bow look.  I attached them to an extra long crochet chain so that the chain can be tied to fit… Continue reading Crochet Tiny Bows

My Grinch-mas

I hate Christmas.  I know, it sounds harsh.  But I found myself saying that repeatedly this past holiday season.  This time of year is extremely difficult for me.  I get stuck in this grinch of a mood and throw even more pity parties for myself than usual.  Everywhere there is Christmas music, the smell of… Continue reading My Grinch-mas

Operation: DIY Doggie Coats

As you can tell from the 'Dog Chronicles' included in a lot of my posts, Ivy the Dane plays a big role in my life.  I swear I know all her quirks, likes, and dislikes....regardless of how crazy my husband thinks I am for thinking  that way.  She is a welcomed distraction in my life.… Continue reading Operation: DIY Doggie Coats

Pink R2D2 – Cus Little Girls Can Be Nerdy Too

One of our most popular hats is the Classic R2D2 hat I came up with right before the start of the holidays.

Paper Heart Garland

When decorating for a party, it is nice to have something unique and eye-catching.  However, finding something that is not typical party decor can be a little difficult.  It can be costly for "stock" disposable cliché garland and banners so I why not change that! I purchased a large heart craft punch at my local… Continue reading Paper Heart Garland

In between requests and projects that are a must to complete, I like to give myself a creative break by doing something that keeps me motivated and happy.  I reward myself with these pauses to keep things exciting. This month my "fun" project is baby leggings!  Who doesn't love stretchy pants!!  My serger sewing machine… Continue reading Baby Leggings

Yellow and Black Burp Cloths

I can't help but want to collect all of the beautiful fabrics I come across.  Getting them in fat quarters makes it easier on the wallet too!  These yellow prints have been sitting in my stash for almost 1 year now so it is finally time they had their moment to shine.  A tiny amount… Continue reading Yellow and Black Burp Cloths

Cabin Fever Sewing

Ivy the Dane joined the spayed club this week...and as a result I have been on "Ivy watch".  She has definitely enjoyed the pampering and now at 5 days post op she is getting back to her playful self.  I never mind her company, I look forward to it.... but not being able to leave her… Continue reading Cabin Fever Sewing
