doll pillow

My niece is so cute..every time she comes over she picks up this pillow...
And she always asks if she can bring her doll over so she can lay on it and she is only 3 so she says it in the cutest voice. Next week is her birthday so I decided to make her one. I would just give her this one but since her b-day is coming up I didn't really want to wrap this up and make it look like I just gave her a random gift around the house. So I made this...
I hope she likes it. I love applique'..its just a mini pillow, about 8x9, perfect for her doll.

I thought I would share a little applique tip.  Have you ever had a hard time peeling the backing off after you get it all cut out? I have..and then the section where I try to peel it off ends up fraying...so I peel a little bit off first then mark it and then cut it.. 
That way after I cut it I can take the peeling off from where I marked it.. 
and then you don't have to waste minutes trying to peel the backing off..and you keep your edges clean!
Maybe some of you are saying "duh" but I didn't think to do this my first couple times so if it helps anyone out then I'm glad.
Added some ric rac

And used amy buttler as the backing..and its done, took about 30 minutes to make.
I hope she likes! Thanks for looking.

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

This is a must have in the summer heat I had a summer baby, born in July!  And I wanted her to have privacy when out in public but there was no way I was going to drape a blanket over her so as a sewer I came up with a solution! Moms are problem solvers!

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
