Adorable & Easy Kids Clothing Tutorials~
A Little Birdie Told Me...No. 58

No, you're not going to find a tutorial for making a Paper Bag Body Helmet for your baby. For that I'd have to have my dad write a guest post and dig back deep....to November of 1973. Yeah, that's me -- the Saggy Diaper Paper Bag Princess (traipsing the landscape of an avocado green felt blanket).

Gotta love the 70s!

Welcome to 
"A Little Birdie Told Me..." Tuesday No. 58!
If you're here to share a craft, recipe or project post,
you'll find the linky and the specifics on how to 
join the party after the features below.


These cute children's clothing tutorials will help insure that no one puts baby in a paper bag!

Don't have a baby at home to sew for?
Why not use your sewing skills to make something special
for those in need?
 Look at this adorable crochet dress made by
based on a pattern from at the Miracles Happen website.
Mlissabeth made this piece to give to a local children's charity.
