A bit of this and that from the Beemer Family. I am a SAHM and always find cute craft ideas to share with friends and family. This blog has my other SAHM's in mind as well as my family and friends back in North Carolina! Enjoy and please pass along my nonsense if you feel like it :)

Sew, maybe not.
Martha Stewart Bunny
Tonight I had a little time to myself (Thank God) and I wanted to finish a sewing project I had started over a month ago. I had seen the cutest little bunny project in my Martha Stewart bible and it *looked* easy so I thought I would give it a whirl. Needless to say it took me longer than expected and I am not so sure I am cut out for this sewing thing. Even though the project was only a couple pieces of fabric sewn together I felt like I had completed a quilt by the time I was done. It was so much harder than I anticipated and it really has made me a little insecure about future sewing projects. I messed up several times and had to undo some stitches and restitch poor "Miss Bunny"....I am sure she felt like a voodoo doll when I finally finished her!
I think she turned out pretty good (and cute) for my first time sewing something like this. I think I will try a couple more smaller projects before I try my hand at the pillowcase dresses that I have been aspiring to make. I know I can't be Martha Stewart overnight but I am going to get there.....eventually....that's the perfectionist and OCD in me :)
