hobby of the day: sewing


Let me just start by saying that sewing is one of the many hobbies where my skills are pretty limited. But I Love It! And I enjoy working on a random creation now and then. Today while the babes were otherwise detained (computer and nap), I snuck (is that a word?) down to the sewing machine and whipped out a little project I’ve been day-dreaming of… this really simple project combined two of my hobbies/loves: sewing and cloth diapers.

I will attempt to attach a photo of my creation (hey, i’m new at wordpress too)!

Here’s what I did: I found a onesie that Cooper had outgrown, with an adorable monkey face on it. Next, I found some sharp scissors and cut out the monkey. Then, I pinned it in place on the gDiaper and stitched it on with my Singer! Voila! An adorable ‘new’ cloth gDiaper!

Hope you have a great day and try something new!


About hobbymamma

I'm a mother of the marvelous Olivia (age 7), the adorable Cooper (almost 3) and Wyatt (6 months). As a busy SAHM (& wife to Tyson aka 'Sarge'), I find myself with irons in many fires. Some of my time is also devoted to voluntary services for various non-profit organizations. The idea for this blog came from something I find myself thinking or saying rather often lately: I have so many interests & hobbies that I don't consider myself 'expert' at any of them. It can be frusterating on occasion, but mostly I find it refreshing and rewarding to enjoy such variety. On this blog I share bits and hints about some of the hobbies I currently enjoy. When considering some of my favorite hobbies - i've discovered that a theme that threads through many of them is green. Not necessarily the color (that too) but 'green practices'. I often find myself thinking, how can I make this more environmentally friendly. What ingredients or products are better for my family and the beautiful planet where we live. I hope you will enjoy reading about some of my hobbies and be inspired to try something new!
