Stamped Frog Onesie

 I saw this fun idea to stamp on a onesie over at see Kate sew so I decided to try it. I got a great deal on these cute rubber stamps (one cent at Michael's- gotta love clearance!) and some fabric paint.Then I unsnapped the onesie and put a piece of paper inside (so that the paint won't seep through).  Next, I put a small amount of paint on a plate and thinly covered the stamp with paint. Then I stamped a frog on the front and back, but you can stamp as desired then let dry and you're done! For some extra cuteness I embroidered the words at the top :)

Fabric Jewelry!

I recently saw this really cute idea of making fabric jewelry, so I whipped some up :) For the necklace and bracelet, you make a long tube of fabric and then you knot wooden balls inside. Then just tie it on and you're good to go! The earrings are made out of  fabric-covered  buttons where you change the back of the button to an earring post. Earring Tutorial

Alligator Onesies

 One of my cousins just had twins and her theme for their room is alligators, so I decided to embroider them alligator onesies. I think they turned out so cute and realistic looking :)

Diaper & Wipes Clutch

I just made this diaper & wipes clutch. I think it turned out so cute! I love how the pink fabric-covered button matches the polka dots on the front. Its great to have in your diaper bag or in your car for emergencies so you can just grab this one little bag when you need to change diapers. (It can hold a small package of wipes and about three diapers)

Necklace Display!

I had seen several different takes on making a necklace display/holder, so I decided to make one using my twist on some of what I had learned from the tutorials. So here's a quick tutorial so you can make one yourself! You will need a frame, a piece of fabric a little bigger than the size of the frame backing, some quilter's batting the same size as the frame backing, heavy duty tape, and some small tacks or hooks.

First take your frame and remove the mat and glass
Now lay your fabric face down. Then lay your batting and frame back on top.

Trim fabric if necessary. Then fold around the edges. I folded in the corner first and then folded in the two sides over it. Now tape about every three inches.
(I had one of my sisters hold the fabric straight while I taped, as it looks neater that way)
It should look like this. Now secure in the frame.
Embellish if desired. I made four little flower rosettes and attached them in the corners.

 Bottom left
Hammer in a couple of tacks close to the top, about 1.5 to 2 inches apart. 
Put necklaces on the tacks and mount on wall. 

Doesn't it look super cute! I love that mustard yellow is in this season!
