Cute Tile Coasters

I saw this great tutorial for making tile coasters...
...and it was so fun and easy I had to try it out!
The glitter in this paper adds a fun sparkle (and hides any imperfections!), 
but you can also use fabric and even add initials or designs.
4" tiles will hold even your biggest mug of a warm winter drink!
Can't you just see a set of these in complementary colors in every room of your house?!

Pink Tutu Skirt

I made this fun pink skirt as a custom order for a friend. It is a pink butterfly-print cotton fabric with tulle overlay and a ribbon casing. I had never made this pattern (Simplicity #1816 k5) before so I was a little nervous, but I think it turned out perfectly, and my friend was thrilled!
