T-Shirt Stacker

Okay, so this isn't the most flawless or thorough project I've ever done, I kind of just slapped it together, but I wanted to do it for two reasons:

1. I'm making a diaper stacker for Sienna's room, and I wanted the practice
2. Josten has very little closet space, and needed a place to put his million t-shirts.

Thus I created The T-Shirt Stacker.

I didn't use a pattern for this, and sometimes when I do that, it's a little hard for me to describe what I did without showing you in person. I did find a great tutorial, however, that you can look at here.

This one uses a clothes hanger, though for Sienna's I will do it with ties on the top to tie to the changing table.

Breck's 4th of July Shorts!

Instructions for these shorts might get a little lengthy, as I did not use a pattern, so if you would like instructions, just let me know and I'll be glad to post it. For now, I'll just say there was a lot of measuring, and comparing with Breck's existing shorts. It was fun though. I pieced all the patchwork pieces together too, so it was a little tedious, but simple.

Sienna's 4th of July Smocked Dress!

I made this dress for Sienna for the 4th of July. The smocked dress that I made a few months ago was in preparation for this dress. So with that said, if you want to know how I did this dress, follow the instructions below for my first smocked dress. The only difference with this dress is the trim along the bottom. I did that by cutting a piece of elastic to the length of the bottom of the dress. I then cut a piece of the trim fabric to 1 1/2 to twice that length, hemmed it, then sewed it just like you would for the elastic in the dress. (see below instructions).

The flower is a hair-clip that my friend Alyssa made. I just thought it would look cute on there too!
