I saw a super cute pattern the last time I was fabric shopping that reminded me of my interest in making a “pillowcase dress” after reading this tutorial. And once I saw this fabric, I knew just the two-year-old to make one for. Pillowcase dresses were once a frugal way to stretch old linen, but […]

Taco seems to be more and more interested in food these days. She’s set to cut her first tooth any day now (the Dr. says 7 months is average, and she’s nearly there), and really gets excited when we share with her at the table. There are only so many times that we eat pureed […]
