Sewing swap

I was in a sewing swap recently. I received 2 half yards of fabric to make anything I wanted. Knowing that my person had 2 little girls, I decided to make as much as I could for them out of what she sent me.

I ended up making a crayon roll, a marker roll, 2 tote bags and a key chain. Fun stuff!

I have been bitten by the knitting bug!

I have found this cool thing called a Knifty Knitter. I wanted to learn how to knit...but I really need to have someone show me how. So this is a meet in the middle kind of thing. I LOVE it. I've made 2 hats in 2 nights. Not perfect....but pretty close. These are so fun to make. I am going to teach the girls had to make them too! They love them and get excited when they see the colors blending!

It's Birthday time for my little niece

Snowman Themed Skirt and Shirt outfit with headband and totebag to match.

The shirt with the yo-yo on it came at a light bulb moment and the rest of it just spilled out as I looked at what fabric I had left to play with!

It's Christmas come early! With a late October birthday, what's better than a great Christmas outfit! This definitely is crying out for some funky tights to go with it!

Still looking for a cute top to use for this skirt..Should I applique...should I add y-yo...hum??? What to do!!!

I am so excited to make one of my sweet niece's her birthday present this year. I've made her two twirly skirts. One I still have to get a shirt to go with it but the other one is all finished and looks oh so cute!

I found a tutorial on how to make a twirly skirt and just had to make it! Don't all girls love to!

Hope you enjoy!!
