I cant tell you how many times I have heard the words " You are such a Martha Stewart" (haha) I just love crafting, diy, painting, sewing, and home decorating. It gives me great satisfaction to look around my house and say " I MADE THAT!"

Paisley and Pokadots

  This week I have been working on my boot pattern and it was a big FLOP! :( Hopefully I will come back to it soon and try to tweak the pattern! Then I got the exciting news that my best friend Lauren had her sweet little girl! :D This brought me out of my sewing funk! Here is the gift set I make for sweet little Ms. Alana Kaylynn Smith. Did I mention how much I LOVE sewing baby things!?!


    I always start with the burp cloths. Designing them gives me a direction to go with the rest of the set. I even added two more new ideas, the newborn charm bracelet, and the CUTE sun bonnet!




  For this onesie I added ruffles to the bottom. I have always wanted to do that! I think they are just precious!



  Here is a close up of the burp cloths. I love how the lace really brings out the femaine qaulity of them! They look like they are were make for a princess (which they were ;) haha!).




Baby tutu's are so easy to make and I think they look so cute in pictures!!!




Here is a close up of the frayed rose hair pretty or tutu clip I made!



I like to cover the clip with ribbon, so that it has no hard edges on the baby.



My ruffled bottom onesie!!! I love it!



Did I tell you much I LOVE this bonnet!?! The pattern was so EASY!



Little baby ballet flats trimed in the same lace!



   I started beading too! It is so fun and it takes no time at all!



So what do you think, are you going to try to make a cute gift set for a little one in your life?




  Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I've just started sewing last year and start my first class this week. It's a lot of fun,but still feel like I'm not good enough yet. Did you teach yourself how to sew? I would love to learn how to make the shoes and tutu... Any pointers for me? Thanks so much. Oh and your items are perfect!!! Love them all.
    Hugs,jen

  4. Jen,

    My mom taught me how to sew as a young girl, but I never did anything with it until I was out of high school. Just start slow and remember the seam ripper is your new best friend ;) My shoe pattern is pretty easy and I have the tutorial on my side bar (ruby red shoes) it will show you how to make your own pattern and step by step how to sew them together! :) The tutu is not sewn (except the lace sewn across the top) I have a tutorial for that too. It is super easy!!! That tutorial is (momma's little fire cracker) Hope this helps! Let me know if you have anymore questions! :)
