taking a blog break

I am going to take a blog break for about the next week to catch up on real life and get some rest. Hopefully I'll have some fun new projects in the works when I get back!

Enjoy...

Done. Thank you for leaving a nice comment for her. And for the record, I really am not a beeyotch. But I have been in her shoes. Two kids, a third on the way, and a husband who was working 80 - 90 hour weeks. It is a lonely, lonely world and when you add the hormones of post partum and the lack of sleep, your sister's comments could be devastating. I hope that you never have to feel that way. I just wanted her to know that she is not alone. Cute site, by the way. You are very talented.

I absolutely *love* your blog! I've just started stamping my own stationary. Now, if only I could make my own stamps... I thought you might be interested in the following book/blog: http://d-i-y-kids.blogspot.com/. It seems like something you might like, if you haven't seen it already.

Sorry to bug you on your blog break, Jill, but I had to ask, because your baby shoes turn out so cute... I can't find bonded fleece for the soles, what do you think would make a good substiute? They probably won't be walked in a lot, so would using just regular cotton work, do you think? Just wanted your expert opinion!

Jill said...

coryshay -

I've never used double bonded fleece either. I use micro suede or denim for the sole (corduroy would also work). Since those fabrics are thinner, I layer a thin piece of cotton quilt batting (like warm 'n natural) and another cotton fabric on top - so in total, my soles have 3 layers. I also like them to have a finished edge, so I add an extra 1/4 inch to the circumference, put the right sides together and sew around the edge (leaving about 1.5 inches open to turn.

I hope that makes sense! Good luck. :)

Jill said...

Also, I think the pattern calls for interfacing, but I leave that out too! I like my baby shoes to be extra soft.

coryshay said...

Thanks a bunch, Jill! I'm glad you said that you don't do interfacing, because it always intimidates me, for some reason... ;)
