New Store, New Mission

Being a mother has helped me to learn and grow so much. I've learned so much more about the natural ways to do things. From birth to nursing to baby-wearing, and also cloth diapering. I've been so interested in cloth diapers since I made my first tiny stash for Benji. Since then I've developed and tested a OS hybrid fitted diaper that lasts the night. That's right, such things exist! And it is entirely safe, environmentally friendly AND economical.

If you would like to know more about my shop, cloth diapers, and how to buy what I make, you can follow my facebook page. You can also find the products I sell in my new shop.

Sweet Panda Pants at the Dont Sew Angry shop!

Howdy! I have been busy making items for my store on hyena cart! Here is what I've been cooking up lately.

Drawstring baby sweatpants! They also have elastic because you need to be able to get them off quick for diaper changes! I can't wait to get more fabrics. They are super cushy and soft on the inside because they are made with lovely cotton fleece.

Great for those of you with winter months (and the few days it is cold here in Florida)!

Creative Candy: Happy Red Fish

Hi There! I'm back! Here is what I was busy making for the last year:

Benji is pretty awesome. Now on to the art!

Two things I love: thread art and vintage images. Throw in some pics of oldish houses with character and you've got me sold. This is exactly what Happy Red Fish does. Happy Red Fish is a creative studio run by artist and designer Hagar Vardimon-van Heummen and is based in Amsterdam. The artist's statement says it all: "Love paper, love thread and adore the combination."

Please visit their site. Even better, check out their shop on bigcartel. There is so much more awesomeness there. I love art with a sense of humor. Beautiful work!

Don't Sew Angry, Baby

It's been quite a while since I posted. I'm still amazed how my creativity has sort of been frozen these past 7 months. I have had so little desire to do anything except nourish this baby, which I've been doing a lot of. I've been taking classes, reading constantly, making diapers, decorating the baby's room, eating, sleeping, and growing! Boy have I been growing. Anyway, I plan to keep Don't Sew Angry up, in case I ever feel the urge to pick up again. However, I've created a new satellite blog: Don't Sew Angry, Baby, where I'll be updating on my progress during the last few months of pregnancy, and beginning to record my journey through parenthood. I have to follow my interests, and right now, my interests lay in this amazing child we are about to bring into this world. It will be a more relaxed blog, and much more about and for our family, but you are welcome to visit, if you like. :)

Quilt for Baby-Finished!

Here's the finished quilt. I'm very happy with it. It's very small, but so is he! I used the quilt binding technique that Heather Bailey teaches. Her pdf. is free and super easy to follow. Just four more months to go!

Quilt for Baby

I've not been motivated to do much, lately. But what I have done is start a quilt for my son. I ordered the fabric from Heather Bailey. You should check out her blog, too. It is so vibrant and rich. Since we are only slightly sure its a boy (he was laying in a very odd angle and our ultrasound was only a guess), I wanted to make something that was more gender neutral (and exciting). I love the combo of yellow, aqua, and red. In fact, here's some of my favorite inspiration:

Combined with a red cotton pattern I already had from a costume project, it makes a lovely pattern:

Now, it's time to go in and tweak a few squares so that the random pattern feels balanced, and then off to sew!

Project Baby Tee

Since I found out I was pregnant I've been documenting my bump with a photo every two weeks. The photos are far from glamorous, I'm hoping that in black and white they will look a bit more tasteful! This tee, sold by Miranda at her shop One Little Minute, is a terrific way to do it! She also posted the DIY for it (for those who are truly ambitious) over at the blog DIY Maternity.

It just turns out that, like the picture above, I am 19 weeks today. I know I haven't been on here too much, especially after such grandiose promises of posts each day and loads of innovative thread art. Sorry! I've been pleasantly surprised to find that people are still coming to visit my blog anyway, and for that I'm very glad. It's good to know that some of what I love is also fun for others. Here's to another week!
