Hey there Cupcake!

Hope you are having a great Thursday so far! This week I have had lots to do, but it hasn't stopped me from taking my "creative breaks". And believe me...I NEED these breaks!

Here's a dress I stitched up yesterday. I found the fabric at Hobby Lobby. I drew up the cupcake and stitched it on there adding a bright, green button for embellishment.

I also made a cupcake bottlecap necklace to go with it.


Have a wonderful Thursday!!!

YeeHaw! Little Buckaroo Gift Set

I have really enjoyed making these little Fabric Basket Baby sets.  I made some the other day and they were a hit. Here they are: Baby Gift Sets.
Yesterday I finished up two more. I made another owl print one and this set, I'll call it
"Welcome Little Buckaroo"

In the basket I've included all the essentials like 2 Burp cloths, 1 embellished Onsie,
an embellished wash cloth and 2 matching pacifiers.



Thanks for visiting! Have a blessed Wednedsay!

Still sewing and bow making!

Whew! Spring break is over! I had hubby home for several days too! We spent most of spring break working around the house. We got lots of painting done! We painted our dining room, our bedroom, and my daughter's room.
So, even though my house is still in disarray, I couldn't wait to get some sewing and bow making done today!

I actually made 10 hair bows and and this set:

Here are some close ups:

Sewin' up some baby gifts!

Lately, I have been determined to use some of my fabric that I have had in my closet. So instead of purchasing more fabric I went through my stash and made these Fabric Basket Baby Gift sets!

I bought a package of cloth diapers at WalMart and added the same fabric onto those. Then I used the fabric on some store bought wash cloths and onesies!






Thanks for visiting today! Have a wonderful Tuesday!!!

I'm also using this project for Challenge #23 over at Aud Sentiments.
