Engagement gift

My sister is getting married. I was so excited I made her these glasses for her engagement gift. 

Gamp good times goodie bags

My friend works for a camp that is for kids with cancer. She asked me and I gladly accepted to make a goodie bag for her 12 campers. 
I made these bags to hold all their things for camp
A frame for their camp picture

A journal for their camp thoughts and ideas and doodles
Turban style headbands. 

All the bags together 
Last minute I thought they needed a flower so I added one. 
And the goodie bags are done and delivered. I hope the campers love them in July!!

Ring sling

I made a ring sling for a friend who moved. I tested it out with mason. It worked great

Elsa cape

Elsa frozen cape for this cuties 4th bday. 
I used glitter glue to put snowflakes all over the fabric.I burned the edges so I didn't have to hem it and gathered and sewed a ribbon for the neck. Fit for an ice queen. 

Name bean bags

Most of my friends had babies last year! I have a lot of 1 year old presents to make. I loved the tutorial from I decided to do them but I used I spy square and color coordinated them then screen printed the letters on. It makes them really educational and tactile and colorful. I think they are perfect for years to come!

I spy quilt.

Masons preschool teacher isn't returning next year so I made her a goodbye quilt. I decided to make an ISpy quilt. I sorted by color and then sewed it into strips. Then put skinny strips between to break it up a little. 

I made home made bias tape to go around the edge
I quilted as I went sewing the front to the back as I went. I love the design it makes when I do it. 

And I finished it off with one of my patches! I hope she keeps it forever. 

Tiny party hats

Using a template online I shrunk and copied a bunch of little party hats on my silhouette. We put elastic string on the bottom and gave one to all of masons toys. We enjoyed playing with them before my friends twins bday party. 

Cardigan onesies and bow ties

Two of my friends had baby boys days from each other. I made these cute cardigan onesies and bow ties for them

sock cupcakes

I made these for the teachers I work with at head start made from a pair of socks 

Mothers day

The only thing better than having you for a mom is mason having you for a grandma/gramzi 
We mailed these with a heart felt note.

Monday: "thanks for helping me be one smart cookie"

Tuesday: "thanks for helping me bloom" earrings. 
Wednesday "Thanks for going to infinity and beyond" for me. Homemade Infinity scarves

Thurday: "you are egg-stra special" EOS eggs

Friday: glass etched steamless wine glasses that said their name on one side and "good day" "rough day" and "don't even ask" lines on the other.

My coworker and friend is expecting a little girl in July. We had a work party and I was prefect pretty in pink shower. 
We made bows for the baby

Mini quote tiles

I have a bunch of sample tiles and made vinyl quotes and stuck them on for gifts. I think they turned out so cute. Everything is cuter tiny!

Boxer shirt

A friend liked this shirt on fb. So I made one similar and used heat transfer vinyl to make it on a shirt. I think it looks very professional quality. 

Diaper bag straps

I designed and made these diaper straps to go around a diaper (or wipes or clothes) to keep everything together while in a bag or something. 

Diaper motorcycles

I went to a joint shower for two close friends. I made these boy diaper motorcycles instead of diaper cakes.
