Left and Right Quilt Tutorial

Remember my do Good Stitches Left and Right quilt that I wrote about last month? Honestly, It’s pretty easy…. I’ll show you how we did it. You’ll need 3 colors of fabric for the flying geese, white and a pile of grey scraps. Unfortunately, I don’t have a quantity of how much of each fabric you’ll […]

A Little Cross Stitch Pouch

Took another break from the blog here… Went on vacation and didn’t plan posts like I used to, nor did I post on vacation like I used to! Partly because I didn’t have internet… Partly because I just didn’t! But I did keep making things! I was still making things and also still finishing projects! […]

Easter Egg Decorating- A New Technique to Us

Have you ever used the shaving cream technique to decorate Easter eggs? We tried it! You might have seen it on Pinterest or other places around the internet, but we tried it! I thought it was fun. The kiddo not so much. He’s not one to get very messy…. The result is a very pastel egg… […]

A Little Auction Creature- Kid Designed, Momma Made

One thing I love to make are stuffies (what we call stuffed animals) and dolls from kids drawings! And every year I also offer this as a thing at the kiddo’s school auctions. Rarely, do the people who buy them actually cash them in to get made. So I was really excited when the parent […]

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I hope you are having a day full of LOVE! I thought it only fitting to share a bunch of blocks I recently made for our Do Good Stitches Circle! I don’t think this whole bunch took more than a couple of hours… In hindsight, I wish I’d made more before I put my pink […]

A Little Tooth Fairy Pillow!
