As some of you know at the end of last year I became an auntie!! So of course when I found out he was coming I started sewing!


Axton Lee Tingley!! When I got to hold this little man for the first time I fell so much in love with him!

Here are some of the things I made!

I made his car seat cover. I don’t have a good picture of it but this is the fabric I made it from.


I found this really cute swaddle on Pinterest! Its super cute and really easy!!




I’ve bee really loving hand Embroidery lately and so I have to do something embroidered!! Love the way this little bib turned out!



I Love this little outfit!! So cute! I can’t wait to see this on him!



And of course being the proud auntie that I am I have to add some pictures of his cute face!!


I’m so sad that he lives so far away from me and I can’t have my auntie snuggles everyday!! I Love and miss this little guy!


DIY Fancy Baby Dress!

Alex Tingley —  December 6, 2014 — Leave a comment

I was looking at baby Dresses trying to find some fancy ones when I came across this one. I fell in love with it!


So I decided to try and do one myself.

I found the bodice pattern here. I used the 3-6 month pattern. The rest I just kind made up as I went.





So I did 2 layers for the skirt and put the ruffles on the under skirt.



I put a binding around the top layer I didn’t have to hem it. I also bubbled the last ruffle on the under skirt to go all the way around the bottom. There are also little leggings with a ruffle (The blue ruffle on the very bottom).



I had So much fun making this little dress! I hope you enjoyed this post!

Who inspires you?

We all have people that inspire us, in all aspects of our lives. If it’s your family life, your work life, the creative side of your life, or your spiritual life, there is probably someone you look up to.

Someone who makes us want to be better.

Someone we wish we could be half as good as in whatever it is they inspire us to do or be.

When it comes one of the things I love to do best, it’s my Nana that inspires me. She’s the one that taught me how to sew.

She hasn’t always lived close to me but when she did, for about 2 and a half years, she cultivated in me a love for sewing. She was my homeschool teacher, so I was at her house 3 times a week. Some days we would just set school aside and sew or bake all day.

I’ll never forget the day we made a quilt to send to an orphanage. There is such a special feeling you get when you know you’re doing something to make a difference in someone’s life.

I’m so thankful for the time we had together on those days. She still inspires me, even though she’s in Oklahoma and I’m in Washington. I love her so much and wish we could be closer so we could have sewing days and she can teach me new things and help me to better myself.

Even though I was there for school, I loved the time spent at their house. My Papa was always teasing me about the boy I liked, calling him my boyfriend, even though he wasn’t, and my Nana teaching me. Whether it was school, sewing, baking, or knitting, we were always busy on some project.

To those of you who have your grandparents close to you, cherish the moments you have with them.

I hope that one day I will be half the seamstress and lady she is!

Hey Y’all!!

My awesome big sister, Brittani Scott, just turned 25!

You should check out her blog, House to Home, or if you’re a music person, check out her music blog, Piano and Pen.

For her birthday I decided to make her a quilt to match her living room. She’s kind of using the jewel tones and black and white.

Here is my inspiration! I found this picture on Pinterest.



I got my fabric at Hobby Lobby! MY Favorite!!

I ended up with WAY to much! I got a yard and a half of each, then another 2 yards of the backing.

I used the black and white as the the backing.



It was 45×60. I just got a pre cut package of batting from Hobby Lobby.


I just used a black binding that I also got from Hobby Lobby.

This is the finished product!! I’m very proud of myself. This is the first quilt I’ve done like this!










Never be scared to try something new. You could find out it’s your new favorite thing! :)

Hope y’all have a wonderful day! Don’t forget to check out Brit’s blogs!!
