The washing/drying energy expended for napkins is something that I consider (almost) free because they are just in with a load that you would be washing/drying anyway.

I bought a bunch of old old embroidery patterns on eBay. Too much goodness for my own good! Here's a couple that I thought I would share with y'all.

This is too awesome! I love that she's not perfectly symmetrical but is balanced. Your daughter is funky!

I hit "This rocks!"

Thanks for all the compliments!

I figured I wasn't going to lose much... just a shirt that I didn't feel too comfortable in anyway.

Jane - you might want to think about where your shirt is too small in order to determine where to put the new fabric.

If it's too small in front but not in back, you could add a strip down the middle of the front or a "V" going from shoulder to shoulder. If you decide to add a strip under the arms, be sure to add it into the sleeves as well. You could even just cut up the underarms and add the strip all the way up. Otherwise the sleeves don't fit that great.

Just some thoughts...

That turtle is adorable, puamelia! Embroidering the eyes is best. They last a whole lot longer that way, even if the child were old enough to not have them post a choking hazard.

Sunny - great bag! I should do that so I can get rid of most of mine. Even using them for trash can liners and to pick up dog poo hasn't decreased their number enough for my taste. I have a giant bag of bags hanging in my utility closet.

Really cute, Katie! I think a black tube top under the middle one would work out well, too. That way it would be flirty without being too much (or too little, if you know what I mean LOL).

Your pinafore is darling.

Thanks! Here is a quickie little diagram for how I made the ruffle out of the sleeve. The trick is cutting it into a spiral because the inside edge of the spiral is shorter than the outside and it makes a ruffle without gathering.

I pin my tees on my body inside out. I have a duct tape dummy form, but it's old and doesn't look like me any more. For simple stuff like this, pinning on my bod is just easier.
