Owl Makeup Bag

The applique on the front of this adorable makeup bag was the tiny end of my owl ribbon, and it was so cute I couldn't bear to throw it away! I usually use patterns for all my sewing, but this time I didn't; I wanted to stretch myself and test my skills, just making it up as I went along, so I was so excited by how well it turned out!
I lined it with fleece and covered the ends of the zippers for extra stability and a more professional look and feel.
Bags like this are great for keeping little things organized in your purse!

First Craft Group (Painting Knockoff Toms)

I just started a craft group with friends, and this was our first project! It was a really fun and easy craft, and it was neat to see how the girls' designs reflected their personalities. 
Getting started... I read a helpful tip that said to cut a small piece of sticky felt or adhesive patches and stick it in the inside of the toe of the shoe, so the shoe will last longer.
I was so excited to find these knock-off Toms at Five and Below for $5; here they are all done and drying.
Yummy blonde brownies-- had to have a snack break!
These are mine; I used the same technique as in my nail art post, and I love having the big gold heart on the front and all the little ones on the back!
The gold is so fun and fashionable!
Ready to go out in style! I can't wait for next month's project...

Girly Spring Elephant Onesie

Is anyone else ready for spring? I am! I love this pale green color, and the fun, girly details like the flower button on the keyhole opening and the ruffles on the sleeves! And the gray-and-white polka-dot print elephant applique is SO cute...
Now available in my shop!

Custom Nursing Cover & Wipes Pouch

A friend of mine is having her second baby, and had me make this adorable set! I love how the gray zipper is so stunning on the little accessory bag, and I couldn't resist making a cute matching burp cloth as a gift to finish off her set!
The set...
burp cloth
wipes pouch (holds a couple diapers and a small package of wipes- super handy!)
accessory/cosmetic bag
nursing cover with custom pocket!

New Burp Cloth Designs!

So excited to finally try these new designs and make them available! I'm always happy to do anything with owls, and I've been getting requests for more boy-appropriate items and I thought this cute teddy fit the bill perfectly. They were fun to make, and I hope people will love them as much as I do.
Owls are in fashion right now, and the little hairbow is SO cute! Sold as a set in my shop!
Cute teddy bear-- so excited to have such a boy-friendly burp cloth in my shop!

Elephant Appliqued Hooded Towel Set

I had so much fun designing this hooded towel and washcloth set, now available in my shop! I love bright green, and thought the gray polka-dot fabric was perfect for an elephant applique.

Custom Nursing Cover

I had fun making this custom nursing cover! I love picking out coordinating fabrics and getting to try new combinations, and was so thrilled to find something my customer loved!

Isn't this fabric beautiful? I love how it's cute and modern, a great pretty print for a chic Mama but not so girly as to be embarrassing to a baby boy underneath!
