DIY & How to

Hi guys I’m Natalie owner of Hunny Bunny Boutique and I have a question for you. Do you love the layered look but hate the extra bulk of 2 layers? I’m going to walk you through hacking the sleeves on the Adalynn Dress to have the layered look without the bulk. You can also do this with most of the MCDI...
Mamma Can Do It just released the Adalynn for women, a new swing style A-line dress that now comes in sizes 00 to plus size 40W.  It really is an amazing and versatile pattern.  The Adalynn dress makes a perfect base pattern for any number of hacks.  The designer Elizabeth Singler is the creative inspiration behind these hacks, because she wanted...
The baby's Adalynn and girl's Adalynn dresses made me so jealous when they came out! I wanted one for me! So when I got to test the women's version, I was really excited--and it was totally worth the hype :) When I made my first women's Adalynn dress for myself, I loved it without any hacks. I made one...
A couple months ago I had picked up this beautiful purple sweater knit that I knew was going to turn into something for myself. But I wasn’t sure what until I seen the Adalynn dress. While testing, I mentioned to Elizabeth that I really wanted to hack a cowl neck onto it. I love cowl neck things. She said sure,...

I can't believe that my pregnancy is half way over! I need to start thinking about newborn clothes and hats. Today I put together a pattern, tutorial and video of how to make a newborn baby hat. I love it! My girlfriend is coming over tomorrow with her brand new sweetheart so that I can model the hat. I...
It's so close to summer. My Elijah has been proving to be a terror on his wardrobe. This child wants to play hard so I need to make him some clothes that won't break my heart if he ruins them.   My inner "freak out" is usually associated with expensive clothing, or clothes that take me a while to make. So...
I am sometimes asked if you need a serger to sew clothes. Specifically knit clothes. Knits are the stretchy fabrics that can give you a harder time if you don't know how to use them. I love using my overlock/serger for sewing with knits. I love that it cuts the edge for me, making it completely clean, without any excess...

I love my snap press. It makes me happy to attach great snaps to anything. Whether a diaper, or clothes, I know that the snaps will outlive the item that I'm making.
