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 Whale Garden Flag

Baby Shower Whale Garden Flag in under 20 minutes

Today, I'm going to share another baby shower craft with you. I have a thing for garden flags and I knew I wanted to make a garden flag themed around our Whale Baby Shower! I used a piece of burlap, cut it to size, and sewed a slit so that it can hang on the wire metal. That took me a whole 5 minutes and then I got to work on my Cricut. Using Iron-On Vinyl I was able to quickly adhere the design on to the burlap. I made this flag the morning of our baby shower. Yes--the morning of. So when I … [Read more...]

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...]
