All Pink & Girly~

I've been busy making hair accessories for my soon to be precious niece, Addie! I'm so excited to see what she's gonna look like! Having girls in general are so much fun! I love making all kinds of pink & girlie things for my little girl!

I think Addie is going to be set for life...lol



I finally finished her baby quilt as well, it didn't come out as perfect as I wanted but with being so busy with taking care of my family & my Dad who is very sick, I think it turn out as good as I could make it!



Hurry up Addie, a lot of people are waiting for your grand entrance!

Some of these below were made by recycled materials!

Recycle Shabby Chic Wreath

I've had this wreath bopping around in my attic & decide to recycle it!

All started with drawing & cutting out my letter...





Instead of using a wooden letter, I used a thick cardboard box for my letter.





I made the brown rosettes flowers out of an old pillow case I had & the white ones out a shirt.
I covered the cardboard letter with just regular yarn.

 Make a few fabric Rosettes flowers & sew them on with quilting thread onto your t-shirt in your desired spot!










I plan to make some more rosettes & add them to some of my shirts!!
