Easy Sew Easter Tote DIY




This year for Easter I thought it would be fun to make the kids an Easter Tote.  Its big enough for Easter Egg hunts, a fun toy or outfit and nothing falls out.  Then I found these adorable grocery bag fabrics at Joann's. The fabric was so cheap only $2.99 a yard. Adorable colors perfect for Easter.  I decided I would personalize each of them with a cute image.  I love how these Easter totes turned out.  My kids love them!

Anthropologie {Knock Off Skirt} Tutorial


While searching for a skirt to make for a client I came across this skirt from Anthropologie.
The original skirt is over $100.  Not really in the price range. She also wanted white lace instead of black. So it was my job to recreate it.  I love the classy look with a feminine touch of lace.

Super Hero Cape {Riley Blake Designs}

 
A few months ago I received the new Riley Blake Designs Catalog.  I saw these capes and knew I needed one for my little guy.  I was so excited when RBD told me they would send me out a few to try and share with you. 
RBD will be releasing these beautiful panels later this month. They come in 3 colors. See them below.{even the girls can play along}
This is one of the coordinating fabrics. I think I need a project just for this fabric. Maybe a cute Neck Tie??? I love it!
Each panel comes with written instructions, a cape (one side), wristbands, waistband and mask. To complete the project you will need 3/4 yard coordinating fabric for back of cape, hook and loop tape, elastic (for mask) and a small amount of felt or batting for the accessories.
If your are new to sewing or want to start this is the perfect project to get started with! Just a few straight lines and a little zig zag stitching!



RBD will also be releasing Princess capes.  Perfect for your pretty princess. 
Be sure to get these before they are all gone. They will make perfect gifts for Birthday's or Christmas. Check out the Ribbon Retreat online to purchase these adorable capes or anywhere Riley Blake is sold!

Easy DIY Knit Headband




 I was at Joann's the other day.  There were 2 teenage girls buying knit fabric.  I asked them what they were going to make.  They showed me a headband they had purchased and figured they could make them.  So I took a look at the headband, gave them a few sewing tips and off they went to make their headbands.  I started thinking and decided to make a few of my own. These headband are super simple.  And stylish too.  I have even teamed up with Ashley over at Flats to Flip Flops to show you how to fashion your head band.

What to wear!! {Fourth of July} 15+ Diy Clothing Projects

The 4th of July is one of those holiday I just love dressing up for.  I realize that it is only 1 day, but I grew up being taught that it is important to celebrate our freedoms.  I have heard stories about family members who have fought in past wars.  Hearing there stories reminds me that freedom is not free.  It is earned and should be appreciated.

Some are DIY some are purchase but all are fabulous.   All around dressing You and your kids for the 4th of July!!

Easy Color Block Tees DIY




Have you seen the new styles in stores lately? I feel like I am in a flashback.  My 12 year old self on Christmas day wearing my color blocked shirt and acid washed hot pink jeans.  I was so cute.  As I shop for my daughter I see tons of clothing styles and colors I wore back in the day.  I keep seeing color blocking  and Neon everywhere.  Instead of buying all those expensive shirts I decided to make my own.  You can make yourself  2 shirts for under $10.  Here is how you do it.

Let's talk toilet paper holder covers...

 So tell me if this is you. You go to the bathroom for a self imposed time out.  You should have been put in time out and hour ago,  but alas the kids wouldn't allow it.  You finally get your time out and you realize part way through you are out of toilet paper. Sound familiar??? Then you have to all to one of your kids...to interrupt you time out to bring you some toilet paper. Well your quiet time out is over..
This is a weekly problem at my house.  My Master Bath is about the only place I get a little quiet during the day.  Maybe 5 minutes a few times a day.
So one day I was perusing my local Ross and found this... A toilet paper holder tower.

Skirt Extender DIY


I love skirts. But as I get older it seems that skirts are getting shorter or I am getting taller.  I have a general rule that my skirts go to the knee.  Skirts that length that are modest can be hard to find. So when I saw a modest slip extender at a local boutique I just had to have one.  But at $30 a piece I decide I would have to wait.  So I went to my local Joanns.  They had a great selection of Lycra stretch fabric in lots of colors.  Here is what I bought:
