I’m the married mama of five beautiful children. We are a family who cloth diapers, are into babywearing, co-sleeping, extended breastfeeding, homeschooling, and all that good stuff. I learned to sew, knit, and crochet as a child but left it behind for many years. I picked them all up again when I had my first child fourteen years ago. Since then I have been sewing cloth diapers, knitting longies, caps & mittens, and crocheting all sorts of fun things for my children.

Here on the blog I share ideas, tips, and tricks on sewing, knitting, crochet, and the occasional odd item. Such as Homemade Emergency Canned Heat. You know, just to keep it interesting.

I own used to own DiaperKit.com (I’m too busy now to maintain it)  and love to share ideas on cloth diaper making as well as tips on using them. I am also the creator of  ButtKnits knitting patterns which are fresh, fun, new patterns for knitting shorties & longies (they go over cloth diapers).
