Sun Dress

As soon as I saw this pattern on the Sew, Mama, Sew! Blog, I knew that I HAD to make one! At the time I was supper preggo, and had no intention of making one for myself, but I immediately thought it would be adorable as a little girl's sun dress.

Off to JoAnn's I went in search of some cute material. I totally think I hit the jackpot. This material struck me as so bright and summery.
I used my four year old son, Kyle, as my model, so the dress naturally was given to one of his best friends, Hannah. I love how it turned out. A dang cute dress for an absolutely adorable little girl!
(I made this back in May, but it's taken a while to get a picture of Hannah. I just couldn't post it without her cuteness!)

Ironing made fun!

Okay, is ironing ever really fun? It amazes me how much better it can be when you have a cute ironing board cover to look at during the process. I just recently made this one for my craft-room ironing board.In staying with the theme of my new craft room (and to match my curtains of course!) I used my new favorite fabric. (Moda - Swanky - Peacock Beverly Hills)

Making an ironing board cover was a super easy and quick project, and a great way to spruce up a boring old ironing board. If anybody is interested in a little tutorial, leave me a comment, this is one I could definitely put together!

Curtains...sort of!

The pictures are terrible, but I am SO excited to show off one of my new craft room projects. I LOVE my new "curtain" for my craft room. My inspiration came from this post on the Moda Bake Shop Blog. I left off the beads, attached the tops of the strips with buttons, and tied knots in the bottom. - The project was easy-peasy, super fun for a shabby-sheik look.

Freezer Paper Art!

I have totally fallen in love with freezer paper stenciling. It is so much fun. What ever you can dream up, you can make into a stencil. Below is one of my latest creations...The story: Colby was delivered by c-section. When the doctor delivered him I could hear the doctor and nurses (my husband and mom too for that matter!) saying "he's tiny, just a little peanut." After they confirmed to me that yes, he was small, but healthy and well, I'm pretty sure that I made a comment much the same as everyone else. Needless to say, the nick-name kind of stuck. I couldn't resist making this onesie.

This is another t-shirt that I made as a birthday gift for one of my son's bestest buddies, Carson. (Carson LOVES playing RockBand on the XBOX, the gift was a success!)
