Here's a project I "completed" a few months ago...I am still adding to it and changing things, so I guess it will never be done, but you know what I mean. I made this quiet book for my daughter to take to church. Some of the pages are religious, some aren't. Some ideas are original, some aren't. This is...
Lately I've seen so many adorable bags/purses on Etsy and different websites that I just had to make one myself. I found these cotton fabrics in my mom's fabric stash (thanks mom!) and knew they would be so cute paired with red. I think this may be my favorite color combination on the planet (until tomorrow when I...
Summer is here...it is officially garage sale season! Can I just say I am so excited?! It's like treasure hunting. I've had great success buying clothes for big sister and baby brother. I guarantee you won't find a cheaper way to buy kids clothes. And as long as you are selective, you can get CUTE, stylish things in...
This page was fun to do. It's another design team assignment for I Am A Scrapaholic www.iamascrapaholic.com. Most everything is from their June kit. I absolutely LOVE the bird/circle rub-on from Bo Bunny! If you look closely (click on the picture to see it larger) at the snowflake in the center of the flower, I covered it...
Hello friends! I'm really excited to say that I will be guest designing at http://www.iamascrapaholic.com/ for the month of June. They sell fantastic monthly kits full of awesome supplies and my job is to show off all the fun stuff you can do with the kit. This is the first page I've made for them. The package came...
I am really happy with this little dress. It's the first time I've made this pattern. I love the details---the little pleated pockets, the tied shoulder straps, and the way it is gathered around the waist. It was easy to make, except for the pockets...they took forever! This is fabric I bought at Wal-Mart about 2...
This morning I happened upon a garage sale. All the clothes were 50 cents, so I picked up two men's shirts. I am SO glad I didn't get impatient and buy one at D.I. for $5. After paying 50 cents, that seems like such a rip off!Anyway, I tried making a dress following the tutorial I posted about a...
Can you tell I'm on "vacation" this week?! With my hubby home to help watch our daughter, I've been sewing up a storm! Here's another reconstructed shirt from that bag of clothes I saved from the thrift store. I cut it down to size (width, length, neck, and arm holes) and added an empire/baby doll waste. Now I just...
Hurray! I am so excited about this project! When I got it all done, I danced out to the living room squealing to show my hubby. I even took pictures along the way so you can see how I did it. I started with two shirts (which I forgot to take pictures of before I cut, so here they...
So while visiting my parents, I discovered that my little sister had a whole garbage bag full of cute clothes that don't fit her anymore. Most are about girls size 12. I decided I would experiment to see if I could come up with anything suitable for Sadie to wear. Let me tell you, I have been in seamstress...
