Sweater Frogs

This past week I’ve gone back to working “full time” to help out with a big data import project… Imagine hundreds and hundreds of lines of excel spreadsheet data and LOTS of copying and pasting… Not exactly my idea of a good time. BUT it’s Friday! And I intend to make the most of my…

Recycled Sweater Dolls – Misty

My Recycled Sweater Doll (more like recycled blouse doll actually) Misty, is now available in my new Etsy shop! I decided not to do one big shop update, instead I’ll be listing new items all week.  Save myself a little sanity that way I’ll be linking this post to the I Made It! blog party…

Bobbin Case Cozy

My little Juniper absolutely loves my bobbin case. And even when she’s not trying to grab it and play with all the fun goodies inside, that stupid plastic case is always popping open and making it’s own messes. So I decided to make a case for it. Ok… I know what you’re thinking. I could…

I Love Weekends ?

After an extremely stressful week at the office, I finally had some time to relax and do some sewing on Friday night. I finished up two outfits for Juniper, made a new stuffed animal, started a drawing commission, and finished up some projects for my sister’s new baby. (AND I got to spend lots of…

I Shirred!

I’ve been wanting to try elastic shirring FOREVER, but I’d been too intimidated by it since I’m new to sewing. Plus, I had a hard time finding elastic thread. I finally decided to give it a try last night, and I’m addicted! This top turned out so cute! I’ll definitely be experimenting more with it…

Recycled Materials Diaper Bag

When I started learning to sew, I got a request from my sister (who is preggo with girlie #3) for a diaper bag made from recycled materials. Sounded like a fun project to me! I am fairly happy with the outcome. It definitely looks handmade! Which I guess is a good thing, right? It’s made…

My First Shirt Dress!!

I am just giddy about how cute this dress turned out. It was a girl’s blouse, size extra-large, and now it’s an adorable 18 month old dress! I’m just learning how to sew, I still have lots to learn. Juniper was so cute, she kept putting things in the belt like it was a pocket.…

Recycled Sweater Dolls – Odette

My latest artistic obsession? Insanely cute stuffed animals made from old clothes!!! Odette is made from 90% recycled materials, the only thing new is the buttons used to hold her arms on and her nose button (And the stuffing). Her body is made from an old dress, and her dress and flower are made from…

My First Sock Animal!

Meet Clive. He’s a little guy with big dreams and he doesn’t care what anyone says. People used to tell him he’d never amount to anything but an old sock, and look at him now! He doesn’t let his success change him though, he still likes to hang out with his twin brother Leo.
