My little Jack-Jack was going as the Tin Man last year for Halloween, and I searched for quite awhile for a Tin Man costume for him.  I just wasn't in love with any of the ones that I saw, and didn't want to pay the price they were asking for them.  So...I decided to make one.  Problem? I'm not a seamstress.  Not a real one, anyway.  I can sew straight lines--give me basic curtains and pillow covers and I'm fine.   I needed something that would be simple, not take too much time, and still be super cute. I came up with this totally adorable and EASY Tin Man costume, and it just might be my favorite.

{DIY easy & adorable ruffled burp rags}

Yesterday I promised that I would post about the Silhouette project I was working on, and I'm excited to share it.  You all know that I'm about simple  details that can totally change the look of a project.  Well, today is a perfect example of that!  I purchased some plain white burp cloths, and wanted to "fancy them up" a little.  Using my Silhouette and sewing machine, and about an hour of time, I ended up with adorable ruffled burp rags!

Handprint Aprons {Mother’s Day}

This was first posted a couple of years ago, but I thought it was time to bring it out of the archives for this Mother's Day!  Anything with handprints is always a favorite for me.  :)


Sometimes it seems like the years past faster than the days do, and capturing little handprints are like freezing a moment in time. When my oldest was small, I made an apron with his handprint on it for my dad for Father's Day.  I still LOVE seeing his tiny little hand on that apron.  ♥ This year it was grandmas' turn... I love how these Handprint Aprons turned out!
