I am a Roman Catholic mother. The sacraments are where I experience some of my deepest moments as a mother. I have stood at the baptismal font with all of my children and have had them baptized into our Catholic faith as newborns. I have waited nervously outside of the confessional while my two oldest children complete the Sacrament of Penance for the first time and celebrated with a gift of candy since God’s mercy is so sweet!
When I am shopping for patterns for my 4 boys, I look for patterns that offer a lot of versatility and options. The Peek a Boo Pattern Shop Boardwalk Tee is just that. You’ll probably notice that many of the clothes I sew for my boys are from PAB, and there’s a good reason for that. Amy’s patterns are easy to use and provide professional finishes. Her pictures and step by step instructions have made it easy for me to improve my sewing skills!
Who here loves Pinterest?!? I love collecting all the beautiful pictures and looking back over them for inspiration. At one point, in my early Pinterest days, I made a point of trying one new project a week. Felt donuts, detailed quiet books, clothes for my baby, new recipes…. so many fun things! We’ve been working on Pinterest boards for the Sew and Tell Project! For all sorts of sewing inspiration, you can follow The Sew and Tell Project here. If you are looking for a wider variety of inspiration for all things crafty and kid-related, you can follow MadeByEmily here.
Hello, all! While I’ve been able to collaborate on a few posts and help with some things in the background, due to my pregnancy and now newborn, this is my first solo post! I couldn’t be more delighted to be here. My husband and I have been married for fifteen years and have three beautiful children. Our girls are 12.5 and 6, and our son is brand spankin’ new. I have been sewing and crafting since I was a little girl and am looking forward to sharing more projects with our readers.
The Bahama Mama Peplum Tankini top and Bikini Bottoms released yesterday. I wanted to share some more details with you about the pattern, the adjustments I made for my height, and some fabric shopping and sewing tips I picked up in testing.
The team and I are working really hard to make this blog fun, informative, and easy to follow!
Throw your hands up in the air if you want to follow us on Bloglovin’! I’m working on making it happen.
