A New Dress

Monday, February 6, 2012

A while ago Jesse wrote a post about trying to start sharing some of the other, non-food related things we're up to. Most of those other things are still under the idea of making things at home, and other DIY projects, so they seem at home on Crackers.

One of the projects I'm involved in is a group of Hamilton ladies who call ourselves the Beehive Craft Collective. The group was formed around a love for the handmade, DIY, and sustainable.

Last week I wrote a post for the Beehive Blog sharing a dress that I made.

Just like getting out of the supermarket for food, we feel so good when we can create something for ourselves, kids or our home without having to buy much other than the raw materials to make it.

Check it out!


  1. I wish I could sew - I'm appalling at it, sadly. But, I agree, 100% - making it yourself is so much more satisfying in so many ways. Can you share a link to your post? Would love to see!

  2. Oh sorry, I added the link to the post. Thanks Tricia.

  3. I am very happy to see that,thanks!
