Spidey (Serger) Power

Big Brother is into all things Spider-Man at the moment. We are constantly being shot by webs and the Spidey jammies are in heavy rotation. He even found a Spider-Man & Friends board book at a spring consignment about combining mommie and daddie's interests: a bargain hunter who likes to read comics!!

Need I say more?!

After we recently spotted the Spider-Man goodness at Pottery Barn Kids, I offered to make Big Brother a special pillowcase. So off we went to the fabric store where he chose two prints of Spidey fabric. 
It turned out to be the perfect starter project for my new serger! In total, it took a yard of fabric and only 4 quick seams thanks to this tutorial.

Now off to further explore the serger - the possibilities make me as giddy as a 4 year old with a new mommie made pillowcase!
Sweet dreams big boy, I love you so much!

M & M Teacher Gift

Today big brother completed his third year of preschool. I think we are both sad to see the routine go, but equally excited to make special summer memories. At the end-of-year picnic, big brother presented each teacher with this special treat to let them know how much he enjoyed their class:

 I came across this adorable jar gift idea on Pinterest awhile back and knew it would be perfect for the end of school. To save time, I used a free printable and tied it on with baker's twine. I plan to re-create this sweet gift in years to come, and may make my own printable version of the poem in card format.

Thank You Teachers & Happy Summer Break!

Another Polo

I had a small window of time this morning for some sewing, and finally got to work on more polo shirts from the to-do pile. Isn't the little whale cute?! He swam over from Applique Momma. This shirt belongs to a set of matching sibling polos for my sweet friend Maureen. I hope her boys enjoy them this summer!


I've got a few more projects to finish up, and then I'm excited to dive into practice with my new SERGER!! I'm still in shock that I finally have one of my own. This year's birthday and Mother's Day were good to this Mommie!
