Maternity Maxi Dress Tutorial

easy to sew Maternity Maxi Dress

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. Our bags are packed, our home is as ready as it can be (although … [Read more...]

Baby Shower Onesie Station

Baby Shower Onesie Station using Cricut Iron-On Vinyl #babyshower #DIY #Craft #Cricut

I can't believe that our whale themed baby shower was 2 months ago. Week after week I kept telling my self I would share our Baby Shower Onesie Station and each week it kept slipping by the way-side. After multiple people reaching out to me about how I did our onesie station I figured it was time to share with the world. The wonderful folks at Cricut sent me a wide variety of Iron-On Vinyl to help make this possible! Gone are the days of puffy painted onesies. Let's get real--who really puts … [Read more...]

Whale Nursery Inspiration Board

Check out the ideas we have for a whale-themed nursery!

  I'm so excited to share with you our whale-themed nursery inspiration board today. This board has been a long time in the making, and still their are a few elements that are 100% final. Jon painted the nursery last month, and we've literally been working all month and now this month on board and batten. Little did we realize how long it would really take us to complete. Plus, remember we work full time jobs so the only time we have to work on it is after work and on the weekend! We are … [Read more...]

Whale Baby Shower

Invite and Diaper Raffle card created by StockBerry

Two weekends ago, we had our baby shower. A whale themed baby shower at that. For those who follow along on Pinterest--you might have figured out that we have a sea/whale theme for our nursery, and our colors are aqua, red, navy, and white. (Hopefully, I'll be sharing our vision board with everyone next week). I helped my mom plan the shower--she's not a party planner nor does she enjoy entertaining people. We are 100% completely opposite when it comes to that department! The first thing … [Read more...]

Punk Princess Onesie

Punk Princess Onesie 5

Last month, I had the opportunity to test out the new Cricut Iron-on vinyl. Once I learned how to use it I was hooked. I made our friend 3 onesies--in fact it was the way we told them we were expecting a baby. But that's another post. Today, I'm sharing how I created this super cute punk princess onesie. I felt the pink glitter was perfect for this edgy onesie! Supplies: Cricut Mini Personal Electronic Cutter Rock Princess Cartridge Cricut® Iron-on Glitter, Pink Cricut® Tool … [Read more...]

Our Greatest DIY Project to Date…

DIY Project Coming March 2014

Well the day has finally come... we can officially share with the world that we have been working on our greatest DIY project to date... a BABY! There have been many times that we have made announcements and readers thought it was a baby, but this time it really is true. I'm officially in my second trimester and we feel confident and safe enough to announce it to the world. We have had quite a few challenges over the past few months and continue to have a few ahead, so that's why we weren't … [Read more...]

How to Host a Baby Shower at Work

Babies are in full force right now in our lives (not us--just other people). I've hosted two baby showers at work this year and have about a handful of friends and family members all expecting this summer. I documented the last baby shower I hosted at work via iPhone and figured I would share with our readers. Entertaining of any sorts can be super stressful, but I have a few tips and ideas that will make hosting a baby shower at work a breeze! First thing is first. Think about your theme. We … [Read more...]

Appliquéd Tie Onesie

Let's face it... the onesie tie tutorial has been around the block or two, but I still can't get enough of them! They are beyond adorable and make for an awesome (and inexpensive) baby-shower gift! I love the fact that you can customize them for each person you are giving them to. I downloaded the FREE pattern on Crap I've Made, and followed her detailed step-by-step tutorial!  I have quite a few friends who graduated from the University of Florida. Each of them are die-hard fans, … [Read more...]

Dual Heat-N-Bond {Cricut Cut} Onesie

One of my first post on Sew Woodsy was about cutting fabric with the cricut and using Heat-N-Bond to adhere the fabric to clothing. I got a new cartridge recently, and was working on some baby gifts and made my first ever layered heat-n-bond fabric project. I love how the additional color brings out the rest of the cut phrase and image.  If your interested in doing a dual-layered cut out using heat-n-bond you'll want to adhere the first layer onto the clothing, and once the surface has … [Read more...]

Pacifier Clip

Back in January I saw this blog post from Running with Scissors about making your own pacifier clip. Since I have a million friends (ok maybe I'm exaggerating on the number) that all seem to be having babies I figured this would be a perfect project to try and hopefully give as gifts! Right after my most recent cousin was born I decided I would give this project a try. I am not going to re-create the wheel here since Jessica did a great job on her tutorial.  This project took me a … [Read more...]
