“A Handmade Way of Life” Series

I’ve been writing (although not all the posts are published) about the handmade way of life.  This is my way of sharing a little bit of how we live here in the Abella household…  We do many things by hand, made by hand, in order to live a more frugal lifestyle and make better use of the resources the Lord has given us.

You’ll be able to find the various entries for this series right here!  I may even throw in some tutes and tips on how to make things frugally as well, with helps to make those pennies stretch in these tougher economic times!  If you have any ideas on this series, leave a comment and let me know!

This series starts with the goodies for Miss Jess.  Oh how she loves her handmade clothing, hair clippies, and toys!

  1. What a great idea for a series! I don’t particularly love to sew (though I finally caught up on the mending today!) but have wanted to make a cotton slip. I think I’ll give the A-line skirt pattern a try for the slip.

    Thanks for linking up at Thrifty Thursday!

    • Thank you! I think you’ll like the skirt pattern, it’s very easy, uses basic math instead of pattern pieces, very easy to change for individual measurements. 🙂 Thank you for stopping in! 🙂

We cherish your thoughts!
