Needles and a Pen bio picture
  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi! I'm Traci. I'm a nursing student and CNA who loves quilting, knitting, cross stitch, and the great outdoors. In my pre-scrubs life, I owned Real Photography, and you can still see my old wedding and portrait photography site here .

    I've created a map that shows links to our camping/hiking/general family fun review posts that you can find here. It's pretty much the coolest thing on this site. Thanks, Google!

    I great big puffy heart *love* comments, so please let me know you visited! I try to always reply!

another toddler border print dress

I am loving this border print dress tutorial–after making one with the Children at Play border print, I was excited to try it with my Gnomeville border print!  It’s a much more casual look, and will hide the dirt and grime of toddlers better, but my heart is with the while Children at Play dress!  🙂

(Edited: Excuse the drippy nose–my model has a nasty cold and I wiped her down before we stepped outside, but 3 seconds later apparently she was snotty again!  Oh well, we’ll keep it real.)  😛

Mary - Insanely cute. If I had a girl this would actually make me attempt garment sewing.

Victoria Paige @ boutique uniquely - This one is super adorable too. I’ll have to give this a try. Add it to list I guess.:)

Speattle - This pattern looks like it has the bones of a great skirt too.
