Welcome to the world of Haysie-Doodle, where the clothes are as unique as the kids who wear them!

Welcome to the 21st century, Mom!

Welcome to my very first blog post!  My kids will be so 
proud (until I start telling stories).

I'm Hays.  (I know.  I have a weird name.  It's a 
family thing.) 
Among other things, I design and sew one-of-a-kind 
children's clothes.  Two years ago, I succumbed to years of prodding and began selling my creations to the public. 
 You see, for a long time I worried that if I "had" to sew, it wouldn't be fun anymore.  Wrong-o, my friends.  I still love sewing.  In fact, I think I love it more.

This blog is primarily intended to share ideas and inspiration with those of you who also love sewing, but I'm sure that other issues will creep into the posts.  My sister accuses me of lacking an inner monologue (much to her chagrin).  I've found, though, that "sharing" builds community and camaraderie.  For example, who hasn't been frustrated by... long lines at the license bureau... children who announce that a 4-week project is due tomorrow... too much "stuff" and not enough storage... dogs who are ALWAYS on the wrong side of the door.  So, if "life" interrupts my sewing, I might just share a story or two.  Maybe they'll bring a smile to your face.  If so, share that smile with someone who needs one.

So, without further ado, on to the sewing!!  I thought I'd start by sharing some photos of creations I've made using patterns by my wonderful cyber-friend, SewSensible.  Her patterns are wonderful for beginners, and I love the versatility they offer.  You can find more information about availability of these patterns (and more) on her blog at www.sewsensible.blogspot.com, or in her etsy store at www.sewsensible.etsy.com.
