Key Fobs


Carry your keys in style with a key fob.   These are about 5″ long, to fit around your wrist.  I have many more in progress… they make great Christmas presents!

Brown & Green Strip Purse August 4, 2008

I’ve been neglecting this blog, which has been easy to do since this summer has been busy and chaotic. I have managed to find time to sew though, it is one of the few things that keeps me sane. Here is a purse set that I made for my sister’s friend, Katie. She requested it based on some things I had made for Elisha. (I did almost keep it… really need to make a set like this for myself)



A work in progress May 7, 2008

I have been working on a quilt for sylvie’s big girl room. The fabric is from Heather Bailey’s Freshcut line. I have finally finished the quilt top and now need to do the actual quilting. Quilting is a big job and I am having fun with it 🙂


Dogs Dogs Dogs

Sylvie loves dogs. Not in a “i’m a baby who likes dogs” kind of way, but really she is OBSESSED with dogs. I knew I had to make her something from this fabric the first time I saw it, so here it is at last. It’s a little big around the neck, but who cares — it has dogs!!


A new spring dress March 13, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — seamstress mama @ 12:25 pm


I hadn’t sewn anything for a week or so (well besides the monumental task of the quilt i’m working on) So yesterday I decided to make a new dress. It’s a perfect dress for an active little girl, pretty and sweet and yet comfy for playing with the boys.
