This is a blanket I made a long time ago, just re-organizing somethings and found it again. Finished off the back with a chocolate polka dot print flannel fabric
I know there are several sites that sell shirts/onsies like these I loved the designs and didn't want to pay the $30+ for a onsie so what is a girl to do but break out the felt and heat n' bond and get creative
I have been one busy bee working on a ton of projects lately. There is just so much inspiration out there especially now that I have joined Pinterest . LOVE that website, it lets you make boards of ideas and pull ideas from other peoples boards too and is a place to save ideas/tutorials etc from various websites.
There are several tutorials for ironing board covers (depending on what you have and if you want to do as I did and just redo the one you have or not) Tip Nut has several great tutorials but I decided to take the lazy way and remove the top fabric from my ironing board cover (seen below...isn't it lovely?!) and repurpose the "guts" of it.
I love this Salad and made it recently to encourage summer and the sun to come out and show itself up here in rainy Oregon.
I made this blanket forever ago from one of those kits you can find at Michaels and finished the back with a really cute/easy technique.
Before Karsyn was born I was on a quilt making kick and made several quilts for her as well as other children I might have or my sister/friends would have and since evertime I go to the fabric store I fall deeply in love with the fabrics there and just can't stand leave the store without them I have created quite the fabric collection.
After I DIY'd my very own camera bag I decided I needed to personalize it a little bit and and made my blogs logo into a zipper pull and while I was at it I made a few luggage tags for our upcoming trip in June. There was a great tutorial over at craft test dummies on how to use countertop color chips to make luggage tags with modge podge dimentional magic.
Happy Housewife So I purchased a frame, printed it out and there you have it, instant art for the new little bundle to be.
Aren't these so cute, I made Karsyn a bag of flour, sugar, eggs, and a piping bag. She also has frosted sugar cookies w/ beads on top for sprinkles and chocolate chip cookies
During this cake class we focused on some new techniques including filling, leveling, icing and smoothing the cake. We used a "hot-knife" technique to make a glassy finish on the cakes sides/top and then experimented with the garland effect, lattice technique, lace technique, shell boarder, pearl boarder and flower placement. It was a lot to learn in one class but very well worth it. Like they say "Practice makes perfect"....well hopefully anyway.
