A Simple Dress

This dress was so easy to make. I actually found the material in the remnant section at Joann's . The elastic top part was already done for me all I have to do was add straps ( which I used already cut bias tape) and hem the bottom of the dress. Also had to sew and serge the back. It took me 15 minutes and cost me less the 5 dollars :) YAY!

Birthday Gifts For My Favorite Little People

I have truly been blessed with an awesome group of nieces and nephews they make me so happy every time I get to see them. There are 11 in total ranging from 1 month to 10 years old. So this year for all the school aged kids i thought i would do something a little bit different as birthday gifts instead of the typical toy . I decided to make them all library book bags for school or really whatever they want it for. So here is the latest one that I made for Seth who turned 5 ....

Here is another one that I  made I haven't taken pictures of them all , I made 3 others.

My children

So I have been very blessed with 4 awesome children. I was working on Saturday in 33 celsius weather and my kids wanted to do a lemonade stand. I always say no because we live on a busy street and it scares me especially with my little guy. So hubby let them while Brandon was napping. He just did some puttering around work in the front yard. The kids took turns jumping in the pool to cool down while one maned the stand. Pretty cute. I was happy Aaron snapped a couple picture . They ended up making 6 dollars I think. Not bad for a 6 and 8 year old.

A pillowcase for my Little man

My baby is almost two and climbing out of his crib so I decided to spruce up his hand me down Cars bed with some Car gear. I decided to make him a Cars pillow case and fix up a quilt I made when I had no idea how to quilt. So here is my latest project. I enjoyed it very simple and best of all Brandon loves it! Here's Brandon and I taking down his crib :(
