I love my snack baggies!

Posted by Teapots and Toads at 6:16 PM 0 comments
I have been stitching a lot of snack bags lately. I keep snagging a print for my little one too! Are you a Diaper Koozie fan on Facebook? That's where I post pictures of my most recent stuff.

Lately, I've been making the larger bags. They measure around 6x6.

Skinny Girls Pancakes... they're delish!

Posted by Teapots and Toads at 10:22 PM 0 comments
First off, here's the recipe (direct from The Skinnygirl Dish by Bethenny Frankel)

3/4 whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp canola oil
1/3 cup + 2 tbsp soy milk
1/2 cup fresh blueberries

I add a little more oil when cooking which creates a nice crunch similar to a funnel cake. YES! Funnel cake, promise!

I also end up with a real thick batter, so I just flip when I see the edges turning a crispy brown.

And for the finishing product that my toddler loves...

Yummmy blueberry pancakes!

How to save a moldy dress

Posted by Teapots and Toads at 8:21 AM 0 comments

What do you do with moldy clothes? I was folding clothes and  bummed to see
 mold around the collar of two little dresses we got from Grammy. YUCK!
The dresses are adorable so I attempted to transform them into skirts.
Here's what I had to start with. I guess I could have dunked it in chemicals to get rid of the stain, but I didn't feeling like turning it into a chemistry experient.

First step was cutting the dress.

Next I turned it inside out and folded over a hem. Make sure you have enough room to fit either your elastic or ribbon through. I chose elastic for the waistband for two reasons. #1 She's a toddler and dressing little Miss Independent can be challenging. #2 I didn't have any ribbon to match *grin*

My mom would have told me to iron, then pin. Personally, I try to avoid pinning if I can. Sometimes you need to pin your fabric together.  This I thought I could avoid with a good ironing. And the result? Success. No pinning necessary *grin*

And here is Lulu's new skirt.
*drum roll*


Cute AND you save an outfit! Happy sewing!
