The last of hats for my baby: A “beary” cute hat. I must say, she’s been a good sport for me with more than normal photo shoots last week. That being said, I think she had had enough when it was time for this one. This is the only, the ONLY, pic I could get of her where she wasn’t crying or protesting or falling over!

Sewing: Couture Skirt (Tutorial for a Time...Pattern Always) There is not much I enjoy more than dressing my girls in something I made for them. If the something includes some sewing and some knitting (or crochet) it is even more fun. These outfits are of course a rather long time coming so when they are finally worn I feel like singing! And if they fit (my girls aren't really great about trying things on for me midstream) and look at least as cute as I had planned, well then, I really want to take a lot of pictures!

Today was one of those rare, laid-back Sundays. I was even in my Sunday school class before all my little students, which almost never happens! :o) And since we had no plans after church, I took the opportunity to make this little scarf that popped into my head as I was making lunch. I intended to make it for myself, but I didn't have quite enough material from these two old, ill-fitting shirts of mine, so I made one for Paige! It was so easy.

Fresh Linens: Fig Tree Threads' Amelia & Me Sun Hat My husband has freckles, which means my kids have freckles, which means if left out in the sun for any length of time, the whole lot of them looks like a carton of speckled eggs.

It uses very little fabric, and so is a perfect way to use up some of your favorite scraps.

Tutorial ~Little Girl's Tunic with Tank Top~ A couple of weeks ago, I scored these for $1 each at a thrift store. Two of them were brand new and still had the original tags, and the lime green one was used, but in nearly mint condition! I thought that to make a tunic top using a tank top would be so easy and fast; not to mention FUN too! I will show you how I did it.
Easy Elastic Waistband for a Little Girls Skirt I hate elastic waist bands. I don’t know why for sure, but even on my little girls skirts they bug me. I think it has more to do with how they make the skirt lay on her. So I was going through all my clothes the other day and had a handful of old undershirts that were slightly stained or had lost there shape. Not wanting to throw them out I threw them in with my scrap fabric to come up with something later.

Made By Rae: Tutorial by Rae: Dragon Slippers I thought I’d kick off our month of boy with a tutorial for these extracute dragon slippers. Elliot is really into monsters and dragons lately. When he asks me to tell him a story at night, the usual request is for the kind I make up about “Prince Elliot and his friend Drew the Dragon.” Nothing special, just a boy and a dragon and their silly adventures, but he loves it. For awhile I’d even catch him occasionally talking to an imaginary Drew.
