Mommy Monday - Hooter Hider

This... sort of has to do with modesty. Well, I've decided it does-- and it's a very useful and easy project that also has an added bonus of being pretty fun. My friend Meredith came over today and made a nursing cover (hooter hider, though I think that might actually be a copyrighted name, in which case, I'm sorry) for her sister who is expecting. We had a blast and it was a super easy beginner's project. It was such a success I decided I had to share it.

We used this tutorial and it was very straight-forward and simple.

Here's the one Meredith made:

I don't know if you can see it, but it has the most adorable little owls on it. Click on the picture and get a closer look. The fabric was just too adorable.

Anyway, enjoy the tutorial! Oh, and happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! :)

Sale at Sakura Rose

Ok, so I need to check my comments more often... oh yeah, and post more often. New Year's resolution, maybe? Anyway, a few weeks back I got a comment from the owner of Sakura Rose Boutique (wow, flattered), informing me - and by extension all of you - of an awesome sale they are having over at Sakura Rose. I went over and checked out their stuff and man, they have some beautiful clothing for some extremely reasonable prices. I chose a few of my favorites to share with you all, but go! Check it out. You won't be sorry.

First, from the 9.99 Sale (9.99?!? You kidding me? I'm getting me some o' these)

They also have this one in plum, but I'm such a sucker for red. Oooh, red.

I'm also a sucker for tuxedo tops. Look how cute!

And this one looks both comfortable and classy. And hey, it's just a coincidence that all the ones I like are red.

There are more bargains on the site; like check out this gorgeous, sparkly dress. Anyone have a formal coming up?

And then there's this beauty. Sigh. So charming.

So, go check out Sakura Rose. Replete with awesomeness. And, it actually does get better - free shipping! (Seriously? Man, this makes my day)
