Patriotic Throught and Through

With the 4th of July on a Sunday this year I couldn't resist but to make some patriotic church clothes. For those of you interested, the tutorial for Paige's ruffle flag shirt is here. You can download the pattern for her sash here. The boys tie pattern was purchased here and can be instantly downloaded. For those of you with basic sewing skills the tie was a pretty simple project. I was pleasantly surprised how quick a project it was and how nice the finished product is. I'm already dreaming of the next holiday I can make ties for.

Fabirc Flowers

One of my new favorite projects are fabric flowers. They are super easy with minimal sewing. There are a million tutorials on the Internet. The pattern that I used for the bottom picture is found here. For the top picture I embroidered a simple design onto felt and then attached the different layers together. My next project is a new tote for myself and I'm planning a huge flower on the front.

Bright Shabby Chic

For this blanket we wanted to use the same style as the shabby chic blanket but with a brighter pink and green. I found this collection of fabrics by Moda and loved the variety of designs while staying in the same colors. My favorite fabric is the fourth one from the bottom... if you look closely it is of peacocks. Not your typical baby blanket but I thought that it worked with this design.


There have been so many boys born lately that I was excited to work on something girly. I loved the simplicity of this embroidered butterfly. I thought that the subtle embroidery coloring was the perfect match for this dainty fabric.

Funky Flower

You probably thought that I had quit sewing. Although I've been busy working full time, I have managed to squeeze in a few requested projects. This project included the full size tote, diaper clutch, ribbon blanket and changing pad. I had a hard time deciding on the lining and tie fabric for the tote but was pleased with the final project. This set was ordered by some co-workers who told me that Ainsley's mama loves pink. I hope there was enough pink for her liking.
