What is living simply?

  • Living simply is not so much about the particulars of our lives as much as it is about the principles that govern them. Knowing what God has called you to do, and then doing it--that's living simply.

It's beautiful! I look forward to seeing the washed product.

What a nifty gift idea!

thanks for the tutorial, you're the best!


Oh! I will definately be sending you some looking out for it!



I bought one last spring so I could make a pattern from it and then was all, "DUH!" when I thought about finding a pattern on-line. Duh. I actually bookmarked a couple sites last spring that showed how to do these. I just hadn't gotten around to it yet. I was pregnant or something. Or giving birth. I don't remember.

Once again, you inspire me. I can't wait to take a stab at it!

oh Joanne, it's so cute. I did some of these earlier this year and I like your modifications... might have to fluff the next ones up a bit like you did here. :)
