close up of the buttons and lace on the custom gown I made for my beautiful sister in law who married my brother this past weekend. A lot of love went into this dress, but it doesn’t/couldn’t ever match the amount of love I have for them and their beautiful little family.🖤
Tuesdays are the busiest day of the week for my girl. If you’re a parent, it also means it becomes the busiest day for you, because whatever lessons, activities, classes, schedule your kids have, you’re the one driving them, waiting & picking up, all while taking care of everything else in between. And many times, nothing in your own to-do list gets checked off.
She had an ortho appt. at 11:30, 40 miles away so I had to check her out of school & check her back in after 2.5 hours, she had soccer from 3:30-5, piano from 5-5:45, then a church youth activity from 6:45-8:45. Did I mention I have 2 other kids I have to pick up & take care of as well?
I knew we’d be a little late to piano(soccer practice just started 2 weeks ago) but it turned out to be 20 mins. late because of late practice & traffic. As I was feeling super bothered & annoyed that we were paying for 45 mins. of piano lesson but only getting 25 mins.(and lessons are not cheap! We pay $1-$1.50 a minute!), and how this dang soccer takes over our lives, I had a thought.
“Every moment is the sum of motherhood. You might think these endless rides to and from every single day are not big moments or an important moment of your motherhood or their childhood, but these moments are very important.
You might think vacations, Holidays, a tournament, when teaching them life lessons, when laughing with them or doing fun activities, are the big moments in your children’s childhood but it’s these simple, everyday moments that will impact their character & leave the most impression.
Watching how you react to a busy day or a stressful situation, how you deal with frustrations or anger, will shape them up way more than whatever you’ll say or the fancy vacations/presents you give them.
Ouch. Anyone else need to react better to stressful situations in front of your kids? Please tell me yes.😅
Just like how the mundane chores of motherhood are very sacred & important, so are the endless rides we give. It’s these small, simple, seemingly unimportant moments that are the most impactful.
So do not take these tasks for granted. There is meaning and purpose to every ride, every dinner, every laundry.

Today I want to teach how to make scalloped edges. As you can see from the pictures, #scalloped edges will be lovely on a shift dress, upgrading the dress. It also looks gorg on a shift blouse.
How can you cut and #sew it?
Easy-peasy. No math required 😉
Just get a small bowl or container from your kitchen and let's get started.
1. Draw circles on paper. Circles must touch each other but not overlap. This forms your pattern for the scallop
2. Use the pattern to place on the hem of your outfit. Side seams of outfit shouldn't be sewn till scalloped hem is finished
3. Trace out the pattern with fabric marker. Make sure the hem section has a facing that is strengthened with interfacing
4. Go to your sewing machine and sew on the trace you made, right side of fashion fabric touching right side of facing
5. Trim the hem very close to the sewing. Notch into the seam allowance of the scallop
6. Turn it out and iron.
That's it. Scallop is finished. How easy was that? What do you think of scalloped hemline? Would you try it? I love to hear your opinion. Tell me your thoughts in the comment section.
