lots of little leggies

little tiny legwarmers

Once upon a time, a couple years back, a couple weeks after we brought the teensiest tiniest little baby Piper Jane home from the hospital, I sat down and made a whole rainbow of little leg warmers (or ‘leggies’) for the Little Miss. Imagine how much fun it was to create another pile of teeny [...]

Hyatti- walking


Haven’t the guests posts this week been fabulous? I rarely think of making things for myself, but this week has got the creative juices flowing. I currently have about 10 projects in the works, which I can’t wait to share! This week has also been fun because Miss Evie Kate decided this week that crawling [...]

two of my favorite things- joel dewberry and pleats!


I made a sewing discovery this week that is a double edged sword. I figured out how to turn two half-yard cuts of fabric into a reversible dress for Piper Jane. One one hand, it is a glorious discovery because- A- As part of my prize for So You Think You Can Sew, I got [...]

vintage storybook sip ‘n see shower

golden book2

I love a good sip ‘n see. And it’s twice as nice when you get to meet TWO sweet babies in one Saturday morning! Two of the families from dental school had babies in the last couple weeks- so a double sip ‘n see was definitely an order. THEME If y’all have been around the [...]

piper jane’s nursery FAQ (and project tutorial round up)

This post is mostly in answer to all of the questions I’ve received about specific projects in Piper Jane’s nursery (let me pause to say- your gushing has me blushing)- kind of like a Piper Jane Room FAQ. The grand challenge was to decorate her room on our ever-so-strict budget… thus, almost everything in the [...]

just pretty

I hinted at this, but we’re finally finishing up Piper Jane’s nursery (yep, I know she’s one already). I am loving it for several reasons.1- I love finishing projects that have been looming. Loose ends being tied up = totally my cup of tea.2- Adding things over a whole year means that the room is [...]

I’m such a sucker for seersucker, y’all. Iloveit. It’s beachy and summer-y and fabulous. I’ve been using it in all sorts of projects this summer- dresses and shorts and appliques. And today I have another dress tutorial for you, you know, just in case you need another reason to love seersucker! To make this dress [...]

kojotutorial: man’s best friend applique

If you were celebrating the 4th of July yesterday, I hope it was great (ours started with a small-town, flag waving, candy-catching parade and ended with on a hill with fireworks in all directions!). When I shared the round up of patriotic duds last week, several of you emailed asking about the Great Dane applique. [...]

sun shades dress tutorial

Hey all! Happy weekend! Just thought we’d publish our Sun Shades tutorial over here as well (we shared it at Craftiness is Not Optional during the Sincerest Form of Flattery). Our inspiration for this little stripe-y number was Anthropologie’s Sun Shades dress… the sunny yellow stripes, the preppy grosgrain, and the darling bell shaped skirt [...]

kojotutorial: the half and half skirt

We shared this sweet little half and half skirt over at delia’s last month… it is light and flow-y and just perfect for summer. So we thought we’d share it over here as well. Before we start, I should say that I relied heavily on Dana’s skirt tutorials, just tweaked the directions for this half-and-half [...]
