other hobbies

Yes, I actually do have other hobbies besides scrapbooking. Photography and reading for sure. But I also love to sew. When my older girls turned 8 I stopped sewing for them and I hadn't sewn in a few years, but with 2 little girls in the house again I have taken it back up. For those of you that are new to sewing or haven't sewn in awhile a great option is to buy a sewing kit from Etsy. The fabric is precut in the size you need and it comes with easy to follow instructions. 2 shops I have bought sewing kits from are:

Little Fish Big Pond


Oh So Sassy

and while I would not consider myself a beginning sewer I love having them cut out for me. Saves me so much time and with a new baby in the house, I need that!

Or if you are looking for some new patterns, PDF patterns are a great option. They are emailed to or you download them from the site. Here are some favorite places to purchase from:

Kustom Kids Boutique

Kissing Kumquats

Zozo Bug Baby

and if you are looking for fabric, I have found a new store to purchase from. Amazing customer service!
Hawthorne Threads

For inspiration I love the KinderKouture blog :)

Here is my almost 2 year old wearing a peasant top I made using a kit from Little Fish Big Pond.

This is so awesome! I had no idea you could buy pre cut fabric with patterns. I definitely AM a beginner so I think I will try this out :)
