Kitchen Remodel (with sources!)

Kitchen

Guess what I have for you today...our kitchen reveal... FINALLY!! We had our kitchen remodeled last year (BEFORE PICTURES HERE) and I am just now getting around to posting all the details! To be honest living through a nine-week remodel with two active boys, a nursing baby and two dogs was about all I could take! So, now that we have lived in it for almost a year and broken it in, I'm sharing some photos and sources, yay! We pretty much knew what we wanted a few years ago but struggled a bit with our countertops so I wrote a whole post about those HERE. Kind of boring to read a whole post ...

Easy Legging Tutorial

Easy Legging Tutorial

Leggings are one of the the easiest things that I keep in my sewing arsenal! I've been using this method for years, first with my boys and now with my girl. The best part is you don't need a pattern, you just need an existing pair of leggings that currently fit! Knits can be a little intimidating but all you really need is the right needle and some good quality fabric. I had the pleasure of trying out some Charley Harper Birch Organic Knit and I can't even explain how good this stuff is! It doesn't even sew like a knit because it's so soft and has such a nice rich thickness to it! Knit ...
