Make homemade items to get rid of ants


Handmade clothing is good. Clothes that look  homemade -not so much. Why? Because in sewing the word homemade is usually associated with poor quality. It can refer to the way the garment is sewn or a poor choice in fabric, to the way the garment fits.  Today, I’m going to talk about 10 sewing mistakes that will definitely give your clothes a homemade look.

There are more mistakes in sewing than what I discuss here, like using the wrong sewing tools, not sewing straight lines and choosing styles beyond your sewing skill set-to name a few. Trust me, I’ve made plenty of them. But if you avoid the 10 below, you’ll be well on your way to a beautifully sewn, HAND made garment.

It’s okay to stray away from the fabric recommendations on the back of your pattern. That’s the beauty of making your own clothes, you get to choose what you want in fabric and style. But it’s best to use what’s recommended as a guide for your fabric choices.

There are many commercial costumes available at the local stores, however between the cost, and lack of imagination, and the fact you end up with a half dozen kids all looking the same at a party. Nothing beats homemade. Below is some basic ideas for you to play with. All are cheap, easy, and allow for tons of imagination. By the way if you have an idea to add please feel free to send it in .

Clown : Sweet clothes that are too large. Decorate by using either fabric paint, or markers. For those who dare try tie-die.  Tack on some large pop-poms, add a cheap wig, hat, and make-up. You may also stuff the extra space in clothing with tissue. However this could be messy, if you need to make a "pit-stop".

So, here’s the plan…today I’m posting the meal plan and grocery list. Sometime during the week, you can buy your groceries, then on Saturday evening, I will post the Meal Prep Day plan for Monday. Then on Monday, you can follow along with me right here and on Twitter, as we prepare and cook a whole weeks worth of meals.

Why am I preparing and cooking these make ahead meals? First of all, my schedule has really gotten crazy with running to baseball and track practice, and games, Doug is working lots more right now, which also limits his time to help with running, and my yard is screaming for attention too.

And second, Jane from the wildly popular blog,  Make-Ahead Meals for Busy Moms , sent me her cookbook, Make-Ahead Meals for Busy Moms , I was just dieing to try some of the meals. And even better! She has one of her cookbooks for one of my lucky readers!
