K’s B-day Party

K turned 3!!  We did a Toy Story – Jessie theme this year cause this girl is obsessed with Toy Story, all 3 of them.  I got creative and did all the décor myself, yet again missing a ton of photos…what is up with that?

I even made her cake…my very first time working with fondant, while it is far from perfect, I think it turned out pretty good and K loved it, so I can’t say it was a failure at all.

I seemed to find one photo of set up for the drink/treat counter.  I made homemade punch from a recipe from a friend, her cake, and the most awesomeness of s’mores pops…DROOL!!

Car Seat Tents

Another new creation made from the tutorial found here added to my store.  These are ones that have been made for friends.  Again I seem to have misplaced more photos. I have made several more of these, but can’t seem to find the photos.

I have made keychains to match all of the purses I have made, but for some reason I don’t have photos of them all.  Here are a couple though.

Crochet Appliques

I made a few appliques, to add to hairclips or if you want you can even sew them onto clothing t cover up some small holes.  I sent these to a friend that makes and sells a ton of hairclips, and she is going to decide if she wants to order more to attach to her clips.

Crochet Butterflies

I made some cute little crocheted butterflies to attach to hair clips for K.  They looks so cute in her hair.  Of course, these have also been added to the store.

Daddy’s Dress Shirt Turned K’s Dress

I found this tutorial online for turning an adult sized dress shirt into a toddler dress for K.  Daddy was going through his closet of work clothes and I snagged this shirt, along with bunch of others to turn them into dresses for our little munchkin.  It still needs to be hemmed up some so she doesn’t trip on it, but it turned out so super cute!

Baby/Toddler Blanket

I found another amazing baby/toddler blanket pattern on the Bernat website, and I just fell in love with it.  This will be for a baby shower and definitely going into the Etsy store.

K’s new dress

I made this cute little dress for my little girl.  She loves this thing and refused to take it off.  I got the pattern online, but at the moment I can’t find the link or the email that the pattern was sent to me from.  I also have a friend back from my young school days (I feel so old) that is wanting me to make her 2 daughters and her 2 nieces each a dress just like this one for their yearly family pictures.

My New Purse

I got tired of looking for the “right” purse for me that had plenty of pockets, the right size, was something I could fall in love it…and when I did find something, it was so outrageously priced!  So I went on a search for pattern for a purse.  After I found it, it was on search for just the right fabric to make it.  Along with my pattern for the purse, came a pattern for coin purse, which I use as a coupon and business card clutch.  And I found a pattern for a keychain to match them all.

Baby Shower Gifts

I have a friend who had a bird/birdcage theme for her nursery and was trying to get all of the décor all hand made.  So I made her a tag blanket and 2 pillows.  Pictured below is both the front and the back side of the pillows.  I found out I hate working with Minky material.  Not only is a pain to keep from stretching while sewing, it is MESSY to cut.
