Feeling domestic

Today was a productive day. Cleaned up around the house, and decluttered a little more, including in my sewing room. I'm slowly accepting that decluttering will never be something I can check off my to-do list. It's going to have to be done over and over. Ugh.

Anyway, on to the good stuff! The fruits of my weekend labour:

I cut the pieces to make this top for myself out of a cute novelty knit I've had in my fabric stash for ages. I'm making View D, which is the top right version.

A knitted swiffer cloth for my Wet Jet. And some willing child labour (=

He's more interested in pressing the button to make the cleaner (I use water and dishsoap in a recycled bottle) come out than in actual cleaning, but I'll take whatever help I can get!

Some new pajama pants for my little helper. The flames are a nice match for his fiery personality.

And yes, more baking. Cherry cupcakes this time. My three year old helped ice them with a baggie. We counted it as craft time.

  1. oooh,that is such a great idea! I may try to make one myself (sewing instead of knitting...I haven't mastered that one yet!), and thanks for the tip on making your own cleaning solution for the swiffer! never thought of it...I love my swiffer, but didn't like to constantly buy the replacement cloths and cleaner! Thanks again for sharing your great projects!

  2. Cute little helper you have there:) I LOVE the fire printed pants, so cute!

  3. Such a cute top pattern! And I love the idea of a knitted cover for the swiffer. And those cupcakes are making me soooo hungry.

    Thanks for linking up at Craftastical!

  4. I just love simplicity sewing patterns.
    Great idea for the swifter jet. I might have not thrown mine away if I would have thought of making re-use-able ones.

    Thanks for linking up to socialize with me Monday til Sunday.

  5. Nice cupcakes. We often use a baggie too. I am doing a giveaway of a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker. Hop on over.

  6. Love the knitted cloth for the wet jet! Great job!
