She got a dress out of the coveted Tula Pink fabric!
Some gorgeous purple herringbone wool on the back.
Here is her other dress. This is the dress that comes with the kitty pattern. I absolutley hate how it fits!!! It doesn't fit, I don't know how to make it fit. Gah. So that's why I made her the other dress. I just don't feel like this dress looks good enough to sell.

I made this quilt at the same time that I made the twins's quilts- I guess I was feeling quilty!!
I used this tutorial from Moda Bake Shop, with a few changes.
I used a charm pack that I had had forever, (Calliope by Riley Blake) a Bella solid brown, and Essex linen in Putty.
I scored the fabric for the back on super sale at a quilt shop in Utah. I guess procrastination pays off sometimes!!!
The quilting is simple, but I love how it looks!!! It's a machine pattern called cotton candy.
I might sell it, but I've never sold a quilt before. Any interest? Email me!

I've been dying to make this quilt pattern- so when Kim wanted a quilt for her new baby girl I was so excited that she picked it!!!
We picked a color palette, and I picked fabric from there!
Of course I had to pick the eyelet for the ruffles- making it harder for myself. But using a gathering foot made it SO MUCH EASIER!!! If you make this quilt- use a gathering foot.
Since the eyelet has holes- I had to back the quilt top with a matching solid underneath so you wouldn't see the batting. It worked out well!!!
Of course the quilting is amazing. Holly always does such a great job!
I just love making baby quilts for people that let me make a lot of the creative decisions! Thanks!!!

My friend Kim is having her 3rd baby, and second girl! I am making a quilt for her and she also wanted a mobile to match.
I used the same fabrics from the quilt, plus matching felt and felt balls.
That pink ruffle!!!!
She's my fav.

I made the nephews a table tent slash table fort last year for Christmas, (sadly no pictures as I didn't have the table it was made for to try it out on but I've been assured that it's awesome!)
So I decided to make some pirate kits for their birthdays. Inspired by the Goonies of course!
Each boy got a personalized backpack with a map, hat, bandanna, and treasure pouches. One has a compass and an eyepatch, the other jewels, and the other coins.
I made the backpacks using the Liberty Backpack Tutorial from the Purl Bee. It was so easy! I made the skull and name appliques out of felt, with Heat N Bond on the back.
I used my silhouette machine to cut out the skull and letters, then I traced the patterns onto the back of the felt, cut them out and ironed them on. Then I stitched them on with my sewing machine. I dod all of this before making the backpacks. I found the treasure bags on Amazon and then stenciled the images on with gold paint. I made the stencils using freezer paper and my silhouette machine.
I found all the goodies on Amazon. If you want sources, email me and I will look them up.

How amazing are these colors together???
I looooove merino wool felt for toys- it's so soft, has the best colors, and will withstand the most rambunctious toddlers.
The deer on the other hand, would not. She's all hand sewn, so she's just for decoration.
