This and That

 I'm trying to let go of a lot of expectations of perfection and just do things that make me happy. 

 The sewing machine cover I had made before didn't make me happy so I modified it.

 I adore this fabric on the side but I'm never sure what I should do with it. So I put a bit of it in a place I can see more often!

My happy place! I cleaned it up for the photo but I think I should leave it this way!

 I also finally tried my hand at making my own bias tape binding. It wasn't as scary as I thought! I think I will make more of my own in the future. I used this helpful tutorial.


I used the tape on this bib made from a towel! This is the best bib ever! My kids can't reach around and pull it off of themselves! It rocks my world. Here is the link to that tutorial.

Downton Jammies

So I bought this lovely fabric online, thinking the "castle" would be a smaller print. I was going to make a shirt out of it, but then I decided pants would be better with the bigger prints. I only had enough fabric to make capri jammie pants, but that's okay.

If you thought I couldn't be more nerdy, I just proved you wrong!
