Birthday Card and a Hair Bow

Hi everyone! Today was my little cousins birthday and I decided to make her a monogrammed hair bow to match the dress I got for her. Any excuse to use my new embroidery machine, lol.. I also made her a cupcake b-day card w/ envelope too.

I used the Create a Critter cart for the cupcake and welded it with my gypsy! Love my gypsy, a DEF must have! There is just endless customizable possibilities with it.. Okay now I sound like a salesman, lol..

Hope you all like it, I appreciate all the wonderful comments and followers! Happy Crafting!

Baby Sling I made this weekend :)

I recently upgraded my sewing machine to the Singer Futura Quartet and this is my 1st project I made with it! I've never had an embroidery machine so it took me a few days to learn the machine, but it was worth it! I absolutly LOVE this machine!

I made this baby sling for my newborn Lillie. She loves it! I also made a handy pocket on the front for me, haha.. I added decorative stitching around the edges and around the pocket for a little extra detail. I'm pretty happy with it considering it was my first on my new machine.

I hope you like it and get inspired to start or take up sewing again :)

My 1st homemade birthday cake!

This past year I took a stab at cake decorating for my daughter's 2nd Birthday and I have to say it was alot of work, but well worth it! Nobody could get over the fact that I made that! Oh, and only the head was from a shaped pan, i had to sculpt and free~hand the rest of her body!

Hand painted Lady Bug jewelry box

I hand painted this jewelry box to match my Niece's bedroom :)

I got the unfinished box at the craft store along with the wooden letters and wooden lady bug, the rest I hand painted to match the decor of her nursery.

My 1st Hair Bows and Binkie Holders

This is a basket that I made for my sister~in law for my nieces baby shower, filled with my custom made hair bows and binkie holders :)

Some cute "buggy" hair clips, these are so easy to make & so cute!

Here are some adorable binkie holders with matching hair clips, can you tell I like to ribbon sculpt :)

This little guy was put on a binkie holder :)

My 1st "Army Wife" bag!

I am a proud Army Wife and when I saw a few ladies that had these I knew I had to have one! They are a little pricey so I made my own and love it! Seeing how I can't see my husband in person everyday for the next year, I can at least carry a little piece of him with me everywhere I go :)
