Being a mom sometimes isn’t the most glamorous job one can have. Being a mom sometimes means walking around with food or boogers on your shirt, and sometimes not getting into the shower till afternoon . we’re busy driving kids to school and activities, busy folding laundry, busy wiping away tears, busy reading bed time stories, busy making it all better, busy cooking meals, busy keeping house, busy cleaning toilets.
Thanks to Leigh Miller, a rising senior phenom, for giving me the opportunity to try out a great idea that I found on the CRAFT magazine blogsite for restyling men's shirts. Leigh's keen sense of style, her superb eye for color and texture, and her all-around-wonderfulness are truly gifts to all of us women sewists and crafters who were blessed with solely male offspring - thanks for indulging me, Leigh!!

Tada! I am so pleased to finally introduce this fluffy little bunnster to you. And I have written up a tutorial so you can make your own!
Last week I was sitting at my computer freezing my butt off when inspiration hit: I need a Snuggie for my hips! And that lead to my *invention* of the Hip Huggie™!
Thanks so much for the book love! I feel so supported and good about the whole thing. . .it's hard to put into words, except to say thank you.
I made this beret to match the Josie Jacket (pattern and tutorial found here ) . When I was looking at '50s style jackets (the look that inspired the Josie Jacket, since I was also trying to complete something for this decade of the Sew Through the Decades Challenge ) so many had berets on the children, too. I loved the idea of "completing the look" with a matching hat.
I haven't been able to bring my Kindle anywhere because I'm afraid it will get scratched. Today, I decided to make a sleeve for it and decided to photograph the steps and present it as a tutorial in case anyone else wants to make one. So here goes!
