Fabric Rosette Necklaces

 I made these for my teenage child care givers... aka babysitters, but absolutely loath that word as they don't sit on babies and my children are no longer babies.. waaaa!!!!

Here is the link of where I got this idea and bonus! It's a tutorial!

Burlap & Rosette Christmas Wreath

 I was inspired by a few fellow bloggers that made up their holiday wreaths using all different types of materials.

{yes that's my daughter peeking through the door to see what I'm up to, and yes they did lock me out!}

Here's a few links to inspire you!

Cream & Paisley Nursing Cover

Love this cream with blue, green & tan paisley nursing cover, it's so cute!

With this one I had a fear of the cream being too "light" or see-through, so I backed it with cream muslin. It does make it a heavier nursing cover but still adorable and fun while maintaining the point of wearing a nursing cover - privacy!

Brown & Blue Paisley Tote & Nursing Cover

I have been working on a tote for a nursing cover. My good friend just had her second child and really wanted a nursing cover. She picked out her fabric and bought 1/2 a yard more than I needed. So I told her I would come up with something to go with it. Well I found this free tutorial for a tote that I found really cute, but a lot of extra work! Phew!

I did have to adjust the pattern to fit what I had leftover for fabric and then I also had to buy coordinating fabric for the liner. I really love the look of the tote and hope to make more..  but I just don't think for the work and extra cost it is worth it to sell as a set unless requested that way.

Cost $18-25 (depending on cost of fabric)

Pillow Slipcovers

I wanted to give my bedroom pillows something new, and other than replacing the ones I have I just thought I would make new slipcovers for them! I have had this fear of zippers for the longest time, till I found the  tutorial for making a wristlet & it had perfect instructions!

I could have gone all fancy with making pillows that have ruffles and lace, but I think my husband would have thought it was too femnine, so I choose to keep it simple. I bought a cotton fabric in a light green damask pattern & two invisible zippers. It took all of one hour to complete both pillow slipcovers & they turned out just perfect for what I was wanting... but I do want to add more pillows.. I don't think there's anything wrong with that!?!

Here is a link showing you step by step instructions on how to make a Throw Pillow Case Cover.

Butterfly Wristlet

My Grandmother's birthday is coming up and I really wanted to sew something for her. I debated between sewing up an apron, a fun bag, cosmetic bag, a tea cozy... but then I found this tutorial and thought it would be perfect since it's something everyone could find use for and love!

Thanks Javajem for the tutorial, it's the best one I've ever followed, it even helped my understanding with adding zippers (before I've always been "ahhh I'm not doing it right!?!?!")!

I haven't sewn anything in 2 months, I'm so happy to have been able to have made something finally!! To me it's très magnifique!

Flirty Ruffled Apron

I made this apron for a good friend as a Christmas present. She loves to bake & cook in the kitchen and I wanted to add a little fun/flirtyness to her good cooking. Guess what? She loved it! Who wouldn't!

You can see a close up of the machine embroidery done here :) I also added this to the ends of the ties.
