So- it's a bit Robin Hood-ish--- but do you think my munchkin cared?
Certainly not! He was so happy to be Peter Pan.
I actually had to convince him to go get candy- he kept saying "The real Peter (the 'real' one is the one in the movie, of course) doesn't get candy"

This next picture is just to give you an idea of some of the kids of clips I've made. But I can also make the ribbon hangers for you, in any colors of your choosing.

I hope you all think it's cute- I think I want to sell this on Etsy. If I ever get around to setting up my Etsy shop that is
She is always re-purposing fabric on her site and it has made me think about doing the same thing.
This may not look like much but I found a skirt on sale for $1. and it was on sale for a reason
The cut was awful- it wouldn't look flattering on anyone- I mean it. Normally I would have walked away- but after reading Dana's blog I knew it had potential.
I turned it into a two-layered gathered little-girls skirt. I made this in about a 2T size.
So I got a CUTE little girls skirt for just a dollar

Mostly I'm proud of myself for using two patterned papers in one card. I have a small dot pattern in the background, and then I made two versions of the card with two different patterned papers-
I struggle to use patterns, I tend to prefer solid colors- so this was tough for me to use two patterns in one card- and bonus I did it twice- TWO different versions!

I loved it- it was so much better than a boppy- the only problem was that I had to undo the Velcro when I was done feeding her and if she had fallen asleep it would wake her up.
So I decided to modify my slipcover.
I cut the strap:
Cut back some of the Velcro to leave room to sew more easily:
Then I just folded the fabric over some buckle closures that I got for a couple of bucks at Joann's and stitched a straight line. SO simple!
Now it is so easy to undo without making all the noise of undoing the Velcro
I found out that some of the new covers are already made this way, but if you get one that doesn't have the buckle, you can easily modify it.
Even my daughter likes it

So, I went to Joann's and I bought two matching ribbons, both were brown with pink polka dots.
I got one 3/8" ribbon and one 1.5" ribbon.
I cut the 1.5" ribbon into 18" strips, I folded over the ends about 1/4 inch and just ran a straight stitch across to hold them in place.
I made small bows out of the 3/8" ribbon and stitched them down on to the top of the wider ribbon.
I used small nails to hang them on the wall.

The shower colors were green and brown, and her theme was mama bear/baby bear
A mama bear and baby bear (sculpted out of fondant) walking together.
I used chocolate buttercream for the paw prints, I used round tips of varying sizes, and then I dipped my finger in cornstarch and then gently tapped the paw prints to flatten them down.
Here are some cake balls:
After making the cake I had some extra batter, so I made 12 cupcakes.
