Before & After

Hello readers... I have decided to show on my blog something that I like to do in my spare time. I love going to the thrift store. I don't like buying things for myself, as you can't really try them on, however, I love buying large shirts (men or women) and making them into things for my daughter. In this post, I am showing a man's shirt (I believe it was a large) and I have transformed it into an adorable little skirt. I even have enough left over that I plan on making a dress. The pattern for this skirt is from Little Lizard King and I absolutely love it. It is easy to make and is very versatile. This is the before....

and this is the after...
So let me know what you think :) Thanks for reading.

Custom Order - Dolls

Recently I had a custom order for 3 dolls. They had a lot of specific details, but they turned out to be a lot of fun to make. The names are stitched on all of there arms, they are interesting names and probably very hard to find on printed items. I was happy to be able to offer that option for these girls. Check out the pictures and see what you think!

Look What I Made

Hi all, I know I don't post often, but I made this dress and I'm in love :) I made it from this tutorial and think that it came out perfect. My little model did not necessarily feel like modeling, but I think you get the idea. It is made from a man's (my boyfriend) dress shirt. I hope to make a few more, but the blue one was my favorite.

If anybody else has any great pics, or has other ideas, please feel free to comment.

Custom Order

Hello all, this is a custom order that I made for someone. I have to say, it is very tough to take a decent picture without a live model, but here it is. I usually make this with a dress top, but I think the shorter top came out adorable! She sent me the fabric and the measurements, and we went from there. Please feel free to comment and let me know what you think :)

Team Tuesday

Hello All, this week I would like to feature Creations by Robin. She has some really beautiful hand wrapped sea glass. I chose two of my favorites, but check out her shop and see all the original works of art. She has pendants, bracelets, and sometimes earrings.
I would also like to add, that I LOVE her color choices. I am a huge fan of blues and greens. She also shows some oranges, pinks, and darker shades of both blue and greens.

In General

Hello all, I was just thinking today (you might even see the smoke from wherever your are) about how much life can change. I went from being a girlfriend of 13 years to a single girl with a newborn baby. And here I am now with a beautiful 3 year old a new(er) boyfriend of 2 1/2 years and my life is wonderful. I am always super busy and running around like a crazy person, but I can't say I don't enjoy it. I guess you always wish for the thing you don't have. I wish that I could work only 3 days and just enjoy my daughter and my crafts, but somehow I don't think things would be any slower in pace:)
These were just some thoughts for the day, guess maybe I'm just feeling sentimental :)
As always please give my shop a look over, let me know if you see something that you think I could improve on. I'm always trying. In all the forums they say that you shouldn't ask for suggestions because you seem to "green", but I don't agree. I know how to make my products, and I know how to make them well, I'm just not sure how to make sure everyone else knows that :)

Hello All. This week I will be featuring one of our newer members, Imperium Decor. Since I make pillowcases myself I can really appreciate the detail and work that she puts in to her designs. These are a few of my favorites, but check out her shop and you will see the real variety that she has going on.
