Sew Me Some Love

I'm new to blogging. Can you tell?

I love to sew. It's hard to find time with three little ones, a part-time teaching job, a husband who studies day and night, night and day, and a household to take care of. But lucky for me, my super fantastic hubby does a lot of the cleaning and folding of laundry when he takes his study breaks, so I can indulge in my hobby for a few mintues or so in the evening while my children slumber. If I'm really lucky the stars will allign and three naps will occur simultaneously. Rare, but not unheard of.

Projects I am currently working on:

My colleague and good friend Cicely, asked me to make her daughter an apron like the one I gave her for Christmas a couple years ago, but kid size (her daughter is seven). I got it cut out yesterday (with the help of my fabulous friend Jodi) and it's waiting patiently to be sewn.

CLOTH DIAPERS: Yes, after much thought and research I've decided to cloth diaper my 5 1/2 month old to wait for the materials to arrive. I think I'll need at least 24 for my babes.

There are so many other projects dancing around in my head, but will have to wait.

I also have an Etsy shop that keeps me sewing! I love it. I'm flattered that someone would want to buy something I sewed and even more flattered when I get such nice feedback about the things I make for them. I am very meticulous and put a lot of love and TLC into everything I create.


  1. You've converted! Cloth Napies! Way to go Janna!

  2. Hey, I made it on the blog! You forgot to mention the absolutely adorable retro cupcake print you found for Olivia's apron. You'll have to show a pic when you're done. :-)
