Oh just a lil something I stiched up last week!

I had a fun time sewing these little projects up last week,

take a look...

Emily Jean Loves Tinkerbell.

So I found this cute very soft flannel Tinkerbell fabric

and added rows of other fabric, pink trim and lace.

Of course I also had to add some pink rick rack and a bow...

I loved the bright green and pink colors and the way they all go together~Don't you?
Emily Jean likes it too!
And then there is this fun flower tote bag.
This is some more of my eBay fabric and trim.
[I love to buy fabric and trim from eBay!]
I still have to stitch the handle on.
I used a little of left over fabric to finish this off from the next project I am going to show you.
this flower tote is lined and has a zippered pocket inside.
A perfectly cute little tote that can be used for carrying your
on the go
~take with you~ knitting, crochet, or any craft project.
Maybe even a sweet book tote!
I thought it would be kind of cool to
add some buttons of different kinds to snazzz it up a bit.

A week ago Monday I made these sweet wash cloth's and towels for a baby shower Amber had to go to the next day.
Whew-got them done in a day!

It is hard to see how pretty they really were.

They were a soft blue with brown thread to match the fabric

I trimmed the edges out with.

That was some really cool fabric with a rick rack print in the same soft blue and brown stitches printed on it-I made bias tape with.

I used some of the extra bias tape I made

on the flower tote above.

Sooo before wrapping this little baby boy gift up,
I tied a pretty satiny brown ribbon into bows on top.

The photo doesn't do it justice
~I haven't been able to get used to my son's new camera.
But trust me it looked great and I hear the new mommy to be was very pleased! That made me a happy girl :D
Next...Easter be watching for a post on them and...
I hope you all have a wonderfully creative
crafty week!


  1. Well, you sure have been a busy sewing bee! Everything you made is adorable.
