Rag Purse Diaper Bag for the Girly Baby Girl

 Its been a good day.  I think we are finally getting into the swing of things after school started a month ago. The kids are getting into the groove, and so I am.  I always swore when my babies were little, that we would NOT be that family that went from 1 activity to the next and were busy all evening long...sadly, that didn't stick.

Ruffle Crib Skirt for Baby Girl in Purple Orchid

And you have the most beautiful ruffle crib skirt {in my humble opinion}

This crib skirt is available for sale, or I also have a tutorial on how to make a ruffle crib skirt

This crib skirt isn't your normal, average, everyday crib skirt.
1.  The crib skirt is adjustable.  I don't sew it onto a plain white piece of fabric.  I sew it onto velcro.  Then I send some adhesive backed velcro for you to attach it to your crib.  That way you can adjust the height of the skirt to whatever you need it to be.
2. The ruffles are soft and flowey adding a soft touch to your little ones special nursery.  Because I know, she is one unique little girl and should have a bedroom to match!
3. The skirt is longer than your typical crib skirt.  It measures in at a total of 17" tall.  The top 1" is the velcro.  So you get a tall 16" skirt.  (if you want a different height, send me an email at and I can get you a quote for the size you need)

Just so you know, I can't wait to work with you and create your very own custom crib skirt for that special someone in your life!

My favorite part of sewing as a business is being able to do custom requests.  A customer will see something that sparks interest, but they want something changed.  So they email me and we figure out how to make that dream a reality.

10 Essential Sewing Tools for the Beginner Seamstress
I don't know about you, but when I go look at the notions wall in Joanns or Hobby Lobby I never know exactly what to get.  Why, you ask?  You are a good seamstress aren't you?

Well, yes,  I am pretty good, but that wall is HUGE!  It has TONS of different things on it.  Then I start calculating everything up in my head and I could EASILY spend a couple hundred dollars on all of that "stuff"  The problem is....Do I really need all that stuff?

Learning to Sew at a Young Age

I don't remember exactly how old I was when my mom first tried to teach me how to sew.  I am guessing between 8-9.  My mom was homeschooling and thought it would be great to do 4-h sewing.  So we went to town and picked out some 4th of July fabric and a short pattern.

4-H Sewing Experience

I think my mom had to of been a saint because I remember vividly NOT wanting to sew the shorts.  I would sew a section and then it wouldn't line up right and when I came back later to finish the project they magically lined up!  It must've been too much for my mom to handle.  I am sure I wasn't an easy student.

The Easiest Bag on the Planet to Sew

I am not joking when I say that this is the easiest bag to sew on the planet!  I have had this bag pattern in mind for a few months, but just haven't had an excuse to sew it up.

I work with Achievement Day 8-9 year old girls from my Church (the Church of Jesus Christ) every other week doing crafts, learning about religion, cooking, and other general things that might be helpful for a young girl to know.  This week we decided it was time to do a craft.

As usual, I put off figuring out the exact dimensions of this bag that I had in mind until 10 minutes before the girls came knocking.  Last minute....I know.  Not a very good example to a young girl?  Probably, but they didn't know that I had waited.  But I will be better.
