Concrete Jungle | Baby Dinosaurs

Move over baby shark! There’s a new favorite in town! When I saw these fabrics by Deena Rutter for Riley Blake Designs, I just knew they would make the coolest baby-sized Concrete Jungle quilt. And because quilting sometimes takes a village, I asked my good friend Sherry if she would want to piece & quilt this one up! She did such an amazing job! Fabrics are all Riley Blake Designs, I mixed in a basicContinue reading

Hand Embroidered Converse Shoes | A Makeover

I’ve seen quite a few embroidered pairs of chucks out there, but most of them feature flowers. Although I enjoy flowers as much as the next girl, I was looking for something a bit different from the norm. My absolute favorite fabric I’ve ever had is a print called Mystery Food by Sara Watts, which features whimsical octopi. I chose this as my starting point. Although you can buy the embroidery pattern for the octopusContinue reading

When possible, buy used, and when notContinue reading

Dog Collar with Bowtie | Finished Project

When we adopted Riley nearly 4 years ago, I went on a mission to make him as many cute collars and bowties as I could. I wanted him to be the most dapper poodle around! Although I haven’t made one for several years, I recently dusted off my old notes, and with a few more years of sewing experience under my belt, I tweaked the original plans until I made something I was completely satisfiedContinue reading
