As some of you probably know I love entering competitions at the State Fair! I have been entering since I was little and it's so fun and very special to me! So here are the things I entered this year...as well as chocolate chip cookies. :)
I love all the coordinating fabrics and the big bow at the back of the apron!
This towel will be so fun to use at Christmas!
Embroidered hanging dishtowel -pattern
I LOVE how this oneie turned out! It embroidered perfectly! I just adore the ruffle on the back!

I made this nursing cover for my sister who just had a baby girl! She picked this fabric for the baby's nursery and sent me some so I could make her nursing cover to match! Isn't this fabric so cute!?
She LOVES pockets so I had to add one!
I used this great tutorial.

It was so much fun to make some girl themed taggie blankets! I have been making a lot of taggies lately and they have been mostly blue with sports and animal ribbons which have turned out so cute but I was ready for some pink, purple, butterflies, flip flops and of course some adorable monkeys! :)

I am thrilled with how this set turned out!
I love the pink chevron and how the kelly green letters make it pop!
The key fob is perfect to help me keep track of my keys and the little bag can hold my phone
and has inside pockets for my credit cards.

I had a friend ask me if I could make a set of corn hole bags to go with a board they were making. I was excited to try this new project and had fun researching the official weight and sizes they were supposed to be. I used this great tutorial and am so happy with how they turned out.

One of my sisters saw this super cute shirt and thought we could make some. She bought two shirts. I had a friend help me cut out stencils with her Silhouette and then I hand painted them, let them dry
and then heat seal them in the dryer on high for 15 minutes.
I am so glad they love them and they look so cute wearing them!
I thought the baby feet would look so cute on a onesie, too!

I had so much fun making this basket to donate to Sycamore Creek
Elementary School's carnival for their silent auction on May 17th. They asked me to make a gender neutral basket to reach the biggest audience. I thought owls would be perfect! I went with brown as the main color and light green, yellow and bright green as the accent colors. I love how it turned out! One of my favorite things is to pick a theme and then design a whole coordinating set around that theme! The set included a changing pad, embroidered onesie and burp cloth, key fob and cute owl earrings.
