Sew Cute!!!

I have a new addiction... Sewing. I bought a sewing machine from the sweetest lady who gotten a fancier model. I. Love. It. My first attempt was to make a dress. It was really just to practice since it is the first thing I had sewen since my high school home ec. class when I made a turtle pillow :) It isn't perfect, but I think it turned out beautifully! See for yourself...

Not the greatest picture, but you get the idea. I made it from fat quarters I got from Whittle's Fabrics in Smiths Grove, Ky.

This is a great project if you are a beginner in the sewing world like me!

I followed this tutorial and it was very easy to understand, even for a beginner. The possibilities are endless. I already have fabric for at least 3 or 4 more of these! I just have to find someone to wear them :) Let me know what you think!

I have fallen in love...

Oh, how I have fallen in love... I bought a Silhouette last week... It was delivered this week... I <3 this thing!!! I see now why people love them! If you do alot of crafting it is worth the investment. I will NEVER buy another gift again! Every piece of glass in our house has been etched, almost! I have some big ideas and some big plans I want to share with you that involves this little miracle machine. But, for now, I am headed back to etching a plate for a friends wedding gift. Oh la la! That is, if I can find my supplies. I feel a craft organizing project that involves the making of a craft room in my future... Anybody have any ideas for me?

P.S. I can't believe I have 4 followers!!! Seriously. I am so excited about it! Thanks for wanting to keep up with me!

The Lydia Bow

Since my little model was here for a sleepover this weekend, I decided to put her to work being my model. I love this hairbow!!! It will go with pretty much anything. I love the bright colors and the big button. You could use any color button you wanted or no button at all. I have made some other bows with solid color ric-rac, but this one is my favorite. And that is why it is the first crafty project I have posted this go-around. What do you think?
I really want to do alot with this blog. If you would like a tutorial on how to make this bow leave a comment and let me know. If you want to buy one of these hairbows, leave a comment about that too. I plan on posting several more bows and other crafty things soon. I will give you a hint... I talked my Mama into getting out the sewing machine... More to come soon.
For those of you who don't know me the little girl in the picture is my niece Lydia. She is a Princess:) and her Aunt Yanya's buddy for sure.
