Drop Waist Lace Dress

 A while back I saw a drop waist dress that I loved.  I cost way to much money and I wanted it a different color. I have always loved the 20's drop waist style. So I made this fun drop waist lace and tricot skirt.

Frozen Inspired Elsa & Anna Aprons



Around our house we are total Frozen fans.  We have had a frozen party, watch the movie dozens of times and we must have an Elsa braid everyday. So when Rachel asked me to participate in a month of Disney I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  So I whipped up these darling Anna and Elsa Aprons for the little miss!

Alex Boye' "Let it Go" Inspired Winter White Sunday Dress

Several weeks ago we found a a music video online with the song "Let it Go" from Frozen, with the voices of Alex Boye' and Lexi Walker. My daughter became obsessed with the video and song.  I think every girl is!  I was more obsessed with the dresses the little Power house singer was wearing. I literally stayed up looking online for the two dresses. My husband just sat and laughed at me.  He finds my crazy funny.  But he knows once my brain starts looking it can't stop until I find what I am looking for.  I found the black and gray dress in the price range of $150. The cream one I couldn't find.  So I decided to make it myself.  So here is my take on the beautiful winter white dress Lexi was wearing in the music video.  A simple and Elegant winter white dress.

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.

Lace Sweatshirt DIY


After viewing this post from One Little Momma.  I am not really into the lace thing myself but for my little miss, Oh yes!  So I found a couple of cute sweatshirts for her and I was on my way.  I thought it would be fun to give her sweatshirts a little something more.  I just love how they turned out.  Perfect for my little miss!

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!
