As a mother, I learned that kids can and will sleep anywhere. Once thinking they neeeded lots of room, I now know twenty can sleep in one room if they just have soft mats like this sleeping bag. Not sure if you’ve seen the sleeping bags for sale in stores right now, but they are decidedly not cute, in my opinion, nor are they made of fabrics I would want next to my skin. Choose your own fabric instead and making this DIY sleeping bag. With a step by step sewing tutorial, what you see is what you get. I had thought this one might be too big of an endeavor for me, because I’ve only sewn smaller projects in the past, however, the instructions were easy to follow and very clear. Now, my only problem is that I have friends asking me to sew the for their kids or at least asking where they can get one (HINT) A super cute sewing project, well worth the time.
Mommy’s little helper needs at least one of these aprons. Not sure if these handmade aprons will actually help keeep anything clean when it comes to little boys, but they sure are cute and my son loves wearing his. This apron makes him feel important when he is doing “jobs” helping me. I made one last year for him as a Christmas gift and he wears it every time we cook in the kitchen. It was easy to sew and I made the pocket out of two pieces of my favorite fabric scraps I’d been saving for that special project, one with little tiny boats and the other with sharks. Found some pretty wave fabric at Joann’s for the apron and he calls it his shark apron. Any combo of coordinating fabrics will work. Only took me about an hour to make, too. For an easy Christmas present you can sew for a boy or girl, I love the idea of this handmade apron.
Now this sewing pattern is Instagram ready if there ever was one. How cute is this, really? Every little monster should have one of these multicolored dino hoodies.

Now here is an easy idea that makes a lovely gift for children.

Learn how to make boxers for boys in soft cute fabrics instead of either 1) buying something made of an inferior material and pattern that is sure to look not so great after a few washings 2)paying $15 or more to buy some well made cute little boy boxers in a boutique store, knowing full well that he will grow out of them in a year or less. Making boxers is not tough and once you get the hang of it, you will be wanting lots of these. Since all my guys wear sometimes in their underwear, I figure it best be cute, as lots of our photo moments are only available when he is sporting his #1 outfit choice, a pair of boxers. If you have two boys, I highly recommend color coordinating two fabrics with the front placket matching the other pair. With a free pattern included, this is such an awesome tutorial. Many thanks to this sewing blogger for doing such a super job with the instructions.
