Raccoon Iron-On Applique

I love that raccoons are the ‘in’ character for kids’ clothing. My littlest guy got some jammies for his birthday with a raccoon. So cute!

And now my oldest son, who has started carrying a backpack to a few activities including our homeschool co-op, has a raccoon on his backpack.

“The Three Little Pigs” Hats

Halloween is fun for lots of kids. One reader ordered three piggie hats for her little girls. The free pattern to make a newborn sized pig hat can be found here. (I take custom orders for pig hats in any size.)

Halloween Hat Sale!

I have been working my fingers to the bone this week with custom orders for hats for Halloween.  At this point, I can’t take additional custom orders and promise that they’ll be there for Halloween.

However, if you have waited until now to decide about your child’s Halloween costume, let me show you a few hats I have available and your child could wear for Halloween.

And they’re all on sale!

I will send you the hat of your choice for an additional $3 for shipping. If you order more than one, we’ll work out the shipping.

Invest your Halloween costume money in a hat your child can wear all winter long.

Email me to order your hat! Sale prices are only effective until Halloween.

Purple Owl Hat

I just couldn’t pass up this beautiful purple yarn at the store. I had to buy some. I made this owl hat. It’s for sale ($24 plus $4 shipping) and fits children age 5 and up.

Adding Roll-Up Cuffs To Pants


My son is tall. Our whole family is tall.

My oldest son is very slim. He needs pants with about a size 4 waist and size 6 length.
I fixed a few pairs of pants for him to make them longer. And they roll up to reveal either fleece or flannel on the inside. I love the look of lined pants for my boys.

This was a relatively simple alteration and I wanted to share it in case any readers needs to lengthen pants for their kids. Or themselves. Or husbands.

Shades of Blue

Our church has collected hats to be given to new babies at the local hospital in the past. We’re starting to do that again, so while we were on vacation for a week (24 total hours of driving with three small kids all age 5 and younger—really, it wasn’t as bad as it sounds…)
I crocheted a dozen hats for the donation basket.

Snap-Sleeve Blue Shirt

I made myself this shirt over the summer. I had a terrible time getting it photographed and finally had my five-year old take these pictures today.
