Sew exciting!

I love to make things and craft but I especially love to sew. Now I am not a seamstress by any means. I can barely cut a pattern most of the time, but I enjoy the trying and the sense of accomplishment when I finish. Sometimes it is difficult for me to get things done since I have never really been taught to sew. You will understand why I was soooo very excited to find this video. Suzanne McNeill of Design Originals 123 has shown me a very easy way to make a quilt. It is easy to follow, quick to finish and the design possibilities are endless! Whether you are an accomplished seamstress or a beginner, these techniques are easy to learn and create a beautiful finished product!

I would recommend her products whole heartedly and have really enjoyed making gifts for family and friends using her techniques.

Tutu much love

As  many of you know, my little Poo is a princess. She loves to dress up an wear ballgowns, tiaras and even tutus! We saw some beautiful tutus that she really wanted but they were asking $40.00 dollars! I nearly fainted so I told her we would go home and make one. I am semi crafty and figured it out pretty quick but I wanted to share with all of you. Here is a wonderful video uploaded by Tulle Talk that is done by Mya's closet and Canada Tulle. It does a good job and explains everything! I sure hope you enjoy it and maybe get motivated to make one for the little princess in your life!
It took my girl and I about 45 minutes to make hers. I let her be very hands on since it was something she could do. It turned out so well we made another! She and I had a wonderful afternoon together making them and now she has princess tutus for every occasion or or no occasion, just because she can :)
