Happy Anniversary

Happy Anniversary to my dear sweet Hubby! He has been putting up with being married to me for SEVEN years now. Bless his heart.

But in those seven years we have created a beautiful life together, and two amazingly gorgeous children. 
Life can be stressful sometimes, but we always make the best of it and come out smiling on the other side.

We do a lot of laughing around here. If you can't laugh together, then you're in for some long, hard years. I love this man and the daddy he is to our babies. Seven many more to go!

Carolina Breeze Bag

Have YOU sewn a Carolina Breeze bag yet?? It's a medium sized bag with sweet pleats and a fun bow to make it extra girly. There are also pocket options for the inside. This bag is sooooo easy to sew, great for a beginner.

The pattern is FREE and can be downloaded HERE at Craftsy.

Many of you have sewn these already and some are even for sale on Etsy. So if you're not into sewing but love the bag, you can find one pre-made as well!

Pretty Desks Inspiration

Whether you're browsing through Pinterest, or searching Google Images, finding just the right inspiration for a project can be overwhelming. I've been wanting to "pretty" up my desk, and looked to others for some great tips and ideas. Naturally, I wanted to share with you too!

I love the colorful accents, and little desk trays here at PrimitiveAndProper

I LOVE the organization in the drawers of this desk at I Heart Organizing. I need that washi tape 

Having a design board behind my desk would be a great help like this one at Best Friends for Frosting.

The link is for a spanish webpage, but the concept is adorable. Glasses with pretty paper wrapped inside at Casa Abril.

The Reversible Jon Jon

Last year ya'll made the Bradshaw Reversible Jon Jon my best selling pattern.

I have heard from so many of you making this jon jon, for Easter outfits, matching brother outfits, and so many other things.

My favorite though, are the people utilizing the center seam to make "house divided" jon jons for college and professional sports teams. How adorable is that?

Having a reversible garment is great when you have young children. Stain down the front? Just flip it over and you have a new outfit.

The possibilities for appliques and patterns are really endless.

You can find the pattern HERE in the Pattern Shop

With the birth of babies comes birth announcements...and the cuter, the better!!

Treat has so many cute and sweet options for those little newborn pictures. They would make an adorable statement welcoming your little one into the world!

Sewing Shorts

Have you tried sewing shorts before? It's easy to whip up a quick pair to match that gorgeous appliqued shirt you just HAD to have for your little one, or make a slouchy pair to run around the yard in.

Grits & Giggles Pattern Shop has shorts and pants patterns to keep your little one's covered year round!

AND for you cloth diapering Mama's....the Jackson Long Shorts have extra room in the rear for those fluffy bums! There's nothing worse than buying a cute pair of shorts only to have the diaper hanging out because they don't fit correctly.

Problem Solved!

And if you're into athletic sewing, make the Emily reversible shorts to show team spirit in TWO colors!!
