Easy DIY Geometric Artwork

Easy DIY Geometric Artwork by Bunny Baubles 3This Summer I got really inspired to add more color into my space. I read that the best way to decorate is to look at your wardrobe and see what colors you gravitate toward. As it turns out for me, that is a lot of white, gray, pink, green, and blue. I had the white, gray, and pink down, but adding green and blue was something new for me in my little bachelorette pad. Continue reading “Easy DIY Geometric Artwork”

Lace Drop Hem Dress with Princess Seams Sewing Tutorial

In my 15+ years of sewing, my ambitions started high (i.e. making a gown with very cheap fabric), steeply dropped (i.e. making many, many tube skirts), and tapered off at easy-medium level projects. I’ve made my fair share of jersey swing dresses, tee shirt dresses, a couple of peplum hem shirts, and generally anything with a forgiving fabric and silhouette. There comes a time, though, when I looked into my closet and found that I really didn’t need any more basic pieces. Continue reading “Lace Drop Hem Dress with Princess Seams Sewing Tutorial”

Small Batch Carrot Cake Recipe

Over Easter I was so lucky to have my family come to stay with me. Every time I see my them it takes me back to all of the memories I have baking with them in the kitchen. Starting back as a child standing on a chair peering over the bowl of the Kitchen Aid mixer, and more recently rolling out pie crust with my Dad and my sister as she teaches me how to make a proper lattice weave. Did I mention she is 14? I need to enlist her on the blog more often! Continue reading “Small Batch Carrot Cake Recipe”

The Perfect Jogger Pants Sewing Tutorial

Perfect Jogger Pants Sewing Tutorial by Bunny Baubles Blog 1

In the last year I have come to appreciate good lounge wear.  White tees and jogger pants have been my favorite go-to items when I want to be cozy at home. Having non-ratty tee shirts and PJ shorts that aren’t from middle school actually does keep me motivated even after I’ve come home after a long day of work to get some chores done or cook a decent meal. Not to mention it’s much more appropriate for running out to the grocery store for a last minute item. Continue reading “The Perfect Jogger Pants Sewing Tutorial”
