How to Sew a Magician’s Cape

Magician's Cape

Learn how easy it is to sew a Magician's Cape in minutes! Back in March my mother in-law took my nephew to our local repertory theater to see a child's play. The play's main character was a magician. My five year old nephew, Nicholas, loved the play and all of a sudden wanted to be a magician. After the show they passed by the merchandise table and my mother in-law splurged and purchased a magician's hat for my Nicholas. He really wanted the cape but she just couldn't fathom spending a … [Read more...]

15 Nursing Cover Tutorials

15 Nursing Cover Tutorials

Before the baby was born I was busy sewing up some projects. I'm glad I sewed when I had the chance because I still have a few projects I want to get too, but I think they will be waiting for a few more weeks. One project that came to mind was a nursing cover. The big box stores charge on average $30 for a nursing cover. I think I made mine for under $10 and even better I got to choose the fabric I wanted! Since there are already tons of fabulous tutorials out on the web already, I really didn't … [Read more...]

Maternity Maxi Dress Tutorial

Today, I'm officially 38 weeks pregnant. It's really hard for me to believe. My goal this whole time is to get to full term status. Part of me feels like this pregnancy has flown by and the other half of me feels like I've been pregnant for years. I think I'm officially ready for this baby to be here. The nursery is no-where near complete, but since I know he won't be in it for a few months I'm content with what we have completed.

I love fabric. Ok, it's more like I'm addicted to fabric. I suffer from fabric addiction. I know many of you right now that are reading this post and nodding your heads.

Recovering the Ikea Tullsta Chair

Recovering the Ikea Tullsta Chair

This project has been a labor of love for sadly over two and a half years now! I finally finished the chair in September before we left for our vacation. I was determined to finish it because frankly I'm tired of hearing Mr. Woodsy complain about it not being done. We bought this chair used from a friend who was moving out of town for a whopping $25! The Tullsta chair retails at ikea for new for $200! I knew how good of deal we got; however, our friend had cats and the chair was a little beat … [Read more...]
