Damask Crib Bedding

How cute is this nursery?!! I love it! Stacey has been the home health nurse that comes to help me take care of my special needs foster child. She has worked with Johnny for more than a year now. I was so thrilled when she asked me to make her baby bedding. Pleated bedskirt. Pink satin ties. Don't you just want to curl up in there?! Crib bumper with black satin cording. These have zippers in them so you can take the covers off and wash them. Sweet dreams Kessler. Congratulations Stacey & Doug! Kessler is a lucky little girl to have the both of you. Thanks for all you have done for my family. I am so happy for you!

She added the flower on a pin so she could remove it if she wanted to. What a fabulous birthday gift!! Happy Birthday Kim!

Trick or Treat Bag Tutorial

I am doing 2 Halloween Birthday Parties this month. These cute Trick or Treat bags are going to be the goody bags for each guest. I love the dotted grosgrain ribbon seperating the fabrics. I made 19 of them today. I have 3 more to go. Want to make your own?

Pin the black fabric & one piece of the halloween fabric together along the longer 14" side and sew. Then repeat with the other piece of Halloween fabric on the bottom side of the blak fabric. Pin & Sew. Iron your seams open. Sew ribbon along the seams. This step is optional but I love using trim and think it just adds so much to your projects.
