Felt Poinsettia

I made this felt poinsettia to wear over Christmas.  I like working with felt and it is a versatile medium.  I made five flower shapes, keeping the sizes just a little bigger from the previous and two leaves.  I attached them altogether in the center then hand sewed the silver beads.  I didn’t have time [...]

Hanging Photo Blocks

After finding some cool blocks on etsy, I decided to order them and put photos on for some artwork.  It was great because they came with holes in the back already to hang.  I cut and glued the photos on and then started putting thin layers of diamond glaze.  I have never used diamond glaze [...]

Flower Pin

I have went through a period of making all kinds of felt and ribbon flowers.  There are a ton of different possibilities with shapes and colors!  I like how they add a punch of color to whatever you put them on!

Elephant Love

This was the latest onesie that I made for my preggo cousin.  I used a iron-on patch and cut it into the elephant shape and then hand stitched all around it.  I always love the finished product, but wish that they didn’t take so long to hand stitch!  Hope she likes it!

Elastic Belt

This elastic belt was made from a few found objects around my house!  I had the flower pin from something I had bought awhile back and the clasp was something my mom had given me and I never quite knew what to do with it.  I sewed on a button in the middle of the [...]

Stitched Elephant

I actually got this shirt for my little guy on clearance for a whole 88 cents!  I did not love the color however and wanted to do something to it.  I decided to do some embroidery and then found this cute elephant.  Voila-la, I like it so much better now!

Clear Necklace

I have made a couple of different necklaces out of clear beads and I love wearing them.  They go with almost everything and I like the larger baubles, the effect is nice.  I always get compliments when I wear them.  Fun!
