Satin Dress Make-Over

I picked this cute Satin dress up at a yard sale for $.50 It was missing the belt that went with it and was just a little plain. I had some blue satin scraps left over from the baby bedding I had just made. So I made flowers to embelish the dress and a tie to go around the waist in a blue satin. What a difference a little color makes! I am going to have Sophia wear this to church tomorrow. She is going to look so cute! Not to bad for $.50!!

P.J.'s with flair!

Lauren in her fabulous furry p.j.'s. Lauren made these fantastic p.j. pants and put blue minky fur on the bottom. They look amazing!!

Kate & Jamie's P.J.'s

Kate & Jamie made these adorable pajama pants in class. They both started sewing this summer and loved it. They made pillowcases for lots of family members after learning to make them in class. Great job girls!

Stenciling the Studio

This is my studio wall that I painted pink when I moved in a few weeks ago. It just needed something else. I had my stencil that I used in my last studio and thought it would be cute to do it in white this time. I just love this design! At first I thought it looked like a baby nursery with the pink & white but I am warming up to it. What do you think?

Blue Paisley Minky Crib Bedding

Double layered satin bedskirt. Blue satin cording on the bumber pads. This custom order crib bedding was made with super soft minky fabric. It is so yummy you just have to touch it. What baby wouldn't want to curl up and nap with this? I have an order for another one and can't wait to get started on it. The next one is for a baby girl. Black & white damask with pink accents. So fun!

Iron Keys

I picked these iron keys up at an Estate sale for $7.00 I just loved them. I spray painted them white. It's just what I needed in my studio. (I didn't notice the mess on my work table that the mirror reflects until now) Oh well! :) I am in the middle of getting a few projects done.

Vintage Memo Board

I bought this frame from Ikea for about $25.00 and spray painted it white. I used some of my fabulous Amy Butler fabric, vintage door knobs and sheer ribbon to create my vintage memo board. I am in LOVE !

Landry's Zebra Bunny

Landry made this adorable zebra bunny out of minky. It was so soft & cuddly. Fabulous job Landry!

Flowers for me?!!

Katie's Dog Bed

Katie (10) made this super soft dog bed out of minky fabric today in class. We put my dog Kish on it to model. So super cute!! It's just his size! (Although she did make it for her dog) I am not sure Kish is going to want to give it up.

Rag Quilts

Abby & Piper made these adorable rag quilts today in class. They still need to be clipped and washed but they worked so hard to get them done and I think they turned out so cute! (Sorry about the blurry pic)

Ruffled Purse
