Welcome to My Modest Blog!

I've always been a crafty person. I love the visual arts and just like to create things. I tend to stare at each item in awe when it is complete... thinking "I made this!?" Call me a hopeless romantic, but the old days had it right in many ways, including traditional homemaking. I've been hobby sewing and crafting since I was a little girl. But in recent years, I found it necessary to sew clothes for my girls to keep them modestly dressed. While nursing my babies, I began making nursing covers for myself and friends. I've also done furniture restoration, crocheting, baking, painting/drawing, photography and more. Enjoying these feminine crafts and other projects has made me want to share my ideas and talents.

I hope to provide you with great ideas and quality products that will "keep you covered!" Some items will be available at an Etsy Shop. Also enjoy my tips and examples on this blog!

Modest Plus Size Maternity

Being a plus size mom can be hard when it comes to finding modest clothing. Now even harder to find plus size maternity wear. I know it is short lived, but I prefer to LOOK pregnant and not just bigger. So here are some patterns I've found that I hope to make a wardrobe I won't dread. Don't forget, JoAnn Fabrics & Crafts always has $1 sales on their sewing patterns!
