GREAT WAYS TO HELP OUT THE NEW MOTHER

The arrival of a new babe is one of the most beautiful and rewarding times in a woman’s life, but also one of the most tiring. With families being scattered across the world as they are now, sometimes the new mother may not have access to the practical, caring support she really needs at this time. By helping out in a few small ways, a good friend can make a world of difference to mum’s early days when settling in with a new baby.

SEWING DESIGNER CLOTHES FOR KIDS—THE FRUGAL WAY!

I have been sewing clothing for my children for the fifteen years. Yet, I can count on one hand the number of commercial paper patterns I have purchased. What’s my secret? Am I master pattern drafter? Not quite. For fifteen years I have been buying sewing pattern magazines. These magazines provide you with anything up to 60 patterns per issue- from newborn size to plus size ladies. Equipped with my collection of sewing pattern magazines and a current children’s fashion magazine, I can be sure that I will have a pattern for any child’s garment I care to create.
