Fun Bleaching Experiment

 I was looking through some blogs and thought this bleaching tutorial looked fun to try. Here are the pictures of my journey with this. I started out with this denim skirt that had a few discolorations on the back already, so what could I lose?

(Caution! If you try this, do not use your $80 jeans! Also expect that every dye lot is different, so you may not get the color that is on the package. Prepare to be surprised!:)

Finished product!  I hemmed it to a cute length and love the lime green color it turned out to be!

Finished product pictures, hair, and make up by my sister:)

Stenciled Onesie

I had a great time with my friend Emily the other day! She help me cut out a stencil with her Silhouette CAMEO® so that I could just stick it on the onesie and paint in the outline. I will have to take pictures of this step next time. It was so fun and I loved how it turned out!!! 

Now available in my shop! :)

Embroidery Hoop Art

I love seeing all the embroidery hoop art on people's blogs, and decided to join the trend! I machine embroidered this fun flower design a while ago, but couldn't decide what to do with it. Then I was inspired by some blogs I saw, and decided to make it a wall hanging. I didn't know how to finish the back, but then one of my sisters showed me this excellent tutorial, and I backed it with this bright green-swirled fabric for a nice finishing touch.

Heart Pendant

When I made this pendant a little while ago, I also made a heart pendant. I couldn't find the right necklace chain to create the look I wanted, but this week I made the exciting discovery of this beautiful red silk cord. I love how the necklace turned out!
