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.

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.

Maternity Maxi Dress Tutorial

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.
