You know what’s weird about skinny jeans? They never look too short. There are long and ankle length. When they really get short, they become capris. You just can’t go wrong. This is good when your daughter is growing like a weed, but only up and not out.

These crazy jeans. They were my first skinny pair (I’m a late adopter). I only bought them because they were super cheap and looked good on. I didn’t mind the distressed look, and I knew having cute, tiny holes near the knees was a bad idea.
This friend is getting the full treatment. After re-stuffing and sewing yet another new nose, my daughter convinced me to make a sweater to cover up the bald spots. I survived eight years before getting a request for “doll” clothes. I guess I can’t complain.
Last year I bought my daughter size medium pajamas from Target. Within a year they were above her ankles. I knew size large would be too big because I measured them in the store. (Yes, that weirdo with the tape measure in the clothing department is me.) However, I don’t have time […]

A friend of mine asked me to hem a pair of jeans for her. Last time I did this, I didn’t have to take them up too much, and I just tacked the extra material to the inside seam.

I’m pleased with how this project turned out. It was really hard to capture the black on black stitches, but you get the idea. It’s less noticeable than in the photo.
One thing I found helpful while navigating all those dark stitches was to thread a contrasting yarn […]
This sweater was a lucky garage sale find a few years ago. I practically live in this thing during the winter. It’s made of cotten and is like wearing a cozy blanket around the house.
The elbows have been worn thin. I tried to fix it last year and didn’t do a […]
I usually don’t spend time mending holes in my daughter’s shirts. She’s growing so fast that it doesn’t seem to make sense. However, sometimes holes happen to a favorite shirt — one we bought a little big so she could wear it a long time.
Usually, holes show up in sleeves and […]
