Easter Dress

I made my first dress for Lula to wear for Easter.  I used this pattern.  Even though I had never made a dress before, it was really easy.  I had to have a little help with the zipper and bias tape, but other than that-no complaints! 
I used this fabric from the Anna Maria Horner’s Good Folks line.  I love how it turned out!
Here is the model hersself!
You should definitely try this pattern if it’s your first time making a dress. Super easy and cute!

More Fabric Cards

I made a new card the other day for my mom’s birthday (Lolly is her grandma name if you are curious). 

I decided it would be cute to make letters this time around.  See my previous post of instructions on how to make a fabric card. This one is pretty much the same except you are cutting your fabric into letters and sewing them on.

Mega Swagbucks

I know I have mentioned in an earlier post about using Swagbucks.com instead of Google to do your searches. You can earn gift cards and it’s totally legit! I just found out that Fridays are Mega Swabucks day which means you will get more bucks awarded and more often! I’m on my way to earning some money at Amazon.com!

Maternity Skirt

I was so excited to find this maternity skirt tutorial last week!  It looked so easy and I loved the fact that you don’t need a pattern.  On our fabric shopping trip, my mom and I bought this cute Momo Wonderland fabric, and thought it would be perfect for a skirt.  I pretty much followed the tutorial exactly, except I did use an a-line skirt I already had as a template, but just made this one bigger.  I also like to wear my maternity clothes under my belly, so I did not make this skirt longer in the front like the tutorial suggests doing.  I also did make the waist a little too big, but I figure it will fit better once I’m really showing.  I have never made a skirt for myself before and I was still able to finish it in an evening!

Hooray for Headbands

I’ve made a ton of headbands using this free pattern from Heather Bailey.  However, I recently made two for a new baby friend and decided to change it up a bit.  I eliminated the ties and added felt embellishments! It’s such an easy and cute baby gift! It literally takes 10 minutes to make one-anyone can do it!

Here is a picture of the other one I made. (Isn’t that tree fabric the cutest??)

Kitchen Towel Pillow

I found this adorable kitchen towel and thought it would look great as a pillow in my living room! It was a super simple project that was very cheap!
Since the towel is an odd size, I made my own under pillow using muslin.  Then, I just folded the towel in half, stitched up two sides and put snapson the remaining side. I wanted to do this so that I could easily remove the outside of the pillow to wash. 
I sewed buttons over the snaps to make it look a little more finished.
The finished product! I think it looks great on my favorite vintage chair (yes that is the original upholstery from the 1960’s).
