This weekend I am inspired by my mom who is lovely and very missed now that we have moved away. She claims to not be crafty but can sew just about anything. She taught me her tricks for easy sewing with this sew a baby dress tutorial.

Like this dress she made for chica,

and this one made out of the skirt I wore on our first year of marriage anniversary date (gallivanting around Niagara Falls swooning in love).

She is quite inspiring- in her honor I plan to actually use my sewing machine this weekend:)

Sew a baby dress tutorial:

Take a skirt and fold over the top. Cut two small arm holes on the sides and stitch the holes and a 1 inch top hole. Line with ribbon and tie.

A few other sew inspired beauties for you:

A pin cushion cupcake

This video uses red thread to animate life scenes.

Making old clothes new again with stitches even I can do.

Soft blocks for your baby.

Bows for boys & bows for girls.

And this awesome free art piece that is standing in next to Chica above- not sew related but too lovely not to share.

Also a bit of vintage baby love for you, in honor of my little brother who is moving across the country on Sunday.

Have a wonderfully inspired weekend everyone.
