Happy Thanksgiving

I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving.  We certainly did.  Lots of food and lots of family.
I made Libby a quick outfit -altered RTW.  The design is from Planet Applique.  The wording I put together with fonts from 8 Paws and a Claw.

Turns out I don't have have a close up of this.  I forgot that my batteries died when I tried to take it and I just grabbed this snap shot Yesterday.    I'll try to find time to grab a new picture. (have to clean gravy off of it first)

Fabric Roses

So I am sitting here working on zipper flowers and my oldest dd says have you seen those flowers that look like they are wrapped around or something?

You mean like this one?

We have some? she asks.
Maybe these where what you were thinking of?

Yeah sort of but these that they were wearing were flatter.
Oh like this?

Yes mom, but they added that fabric type stuff with holes in it.

Silly girl!  Today I made this.

She was thrilled. Put it in her hair and ran to her friends house to show it off.

To make these roses there is a tutorial here and more here

I don't know if I am excited or not. She is two! So much fun and crazy little laughs we glean out of our adorable two year old.

I purchased a sweater to make this darling little dress...forgive me I forgot where I got the idea from. I also added the button patch because I wanted something for today, but also wanted to keep wearing the dress without something on it.

There really isn't a wrinkle there. I just couldn't get her to stand still. She wants to see and play with the camera.

And just so you can see she is like most two year olds, here is our screamer...mad at me, she no longer will stand for a picture because I will not let her play with my camera. Boy this girl has some lungs!

Minnie Dress Order

I made a little pillowcase dress for an order this week. Just thought I would take a picture and share. I just had to add the little bow, because I couldn't throw 6" of ribbon back in the drawer.

Veteran's Day

The school is holding an assembly today.  The PTA is going to honor two teachers that have served.  I offered to make them some plaques.  The design is free from oddonesvk on SewForum.  I think they turned out nice.
Sorry it is late and so I had to take them with the house lights.  Like that little swoop on Mr. Schoonover's.  That is because I had put the next wording to low.  I like how it turned out.  I used leather from a skirt my SIL picked up at a garage sale and thought we could use.  It will be a cute short skirt now :)

Do you know a veteran. Please let them know we are thankful for their service! My Dad and Dad-in-law both served. Thank you!

Tooth Pillow

CeCe was invited to a birthday party. And what does every first grader need? Yes somewhere to put those lost teeth. CeCe picked the fabrics. She was very excited so I dared not change her mind. I tried to talk her into pulling her front tooth(which is hanging on by I don't know what)and making her a matching pillow. She didn't go for it.

Fall Dinner

Tonight is Relief Society Holiday Dinner.  I was to make the posters and invitations.  I learned a little more in corel draw while trying to make this.  My husband was kind enough to help me with a few steps.  I sent it to Costco to print 4x6 photos.
This is how it turned out:

Lunch...a little late

What a crazy time...I haven't been here for so long.  I really meant to show you the lunch the next day.  I even took pictures the next day.  Boy how life sneaks up on me.

Well let's kill the suspense...

Cute hey?  Let's see what we packed.

Sandwich, Chips and cookies.
How cute is that "sandwich bag"? I sewed that up with thin plastic.

Yum my favorite Turkey with lettuce tomato and cheese.

Anyone care to join me?
