Guinea Pig Doodle Embroidery, Free Applique Pattern & Instructions

I made this pillow over a month ago for my sweet D-group girl's dorm bed. She was off to college this month and I wanted her to have something that was fun and unique for her room. She loves guinea pigs and has decorated her room in magenta, black & white. And this is what I woke up thinking about for her! I am sharing my simple instructions and pattern so that you can have a pillow (or anything else you consider applique worthy) with your very own loving pair of pigs! Hahaha!

Free Sewing Pattern: Animal Cell Softie

Alexander, my 12yo, came home a couple of weeks ago with his first Science project of the year. He had to make a 3 D animal or plant cell model and it could not be made out of food, due to an ant problem with last year's projects. He was really disappointed because he wanted to make it out of food; he really likes to bake. I suggested that we make a softie cell model together or he could make a clay and/or styrofoam one. I was pretty excited about making a cell pillow and he caught my enthusiasm.

Tutorial: DIY Ruffled Letters

I bought these cardboard letters for Blythe's room 7 months ago! Another example of me taking forever to make a decision about how to make or decorate something simple. I seriously went through a ridiculous amount of mental options about how I should do it & just decided 2 weeks ago. Why do I do that?

Free Printables, ABC I (love) U: for boys or girls

I think the ABC, I love you chart is so sweet.  I couldn't find one that had the letters beginning an then ending at the same spots.  (I admit to being a bit of a perfectionist, I think it's because I am an oldest. Do you share my compulsion?) So, I made one and now you can use it too.  I have been making printables like crazy for a few days.  I hope you are enjoying them!
