I accidentally sewed the sash on the apron above wrong. I fixed it but didn't photograph it before I sent it on to Julia.

My sister ordered two aprons for gifts last month and I made three for her to choose from. She chose the bottom two.

Some new stockings!

Felt is so much fun!! I spent some time sewing this past week and I intend to do some more this week. Keep an eye out for more stockings and aprons. I should be posting more in the next day or two.

Stockings are $15 each or $12 if you order three or more.

Coloring Books

I had so much fun making these little coloring pouches. These aren't for my etsy shop (I actually saw the idea on another etsy shop and knew I could figure out how to make them on my own). These fold up and tie with a ribbon so they are the perfect thing to take to church, in the car, to a restaurant, etc.

I made them for my boys and 4 of my little nieces for Christmas. I forgot and wrapped the boy version before taking a picture of them - I used the Farmer's Market Spring Apple print with a dark brown fabric as my solid background.

I added a little initial on the front to personalize them.

Advent Calender

Not to be out done by Katherine's Christmas spirit, I whipped this up this past weekend (ok so it took me two weekends to finish). I have a little tree that my boys can hang an ornament each day until Christmas. And yes, I cut out all those numbers by hand. Sorry about the fuzzy pics. Santa better bring me a new camera for Christmas if he knows what's good for him :)

Deck the Halls!

Stockings antique

I'm so getting in the Christmas spirit. Which is great, since I have not purchased a single Christmas present yet. Yikes!

After having so much making this for Sophie, I've been experimenting with felt lately and decided to start selling Christmas stockings in my etsy store.

I hope you like them. Let me know what you think!

I think I like the poinsettia one the best. It reminds me of my Mom. She loved poinsettias.

I will accept custom orders if anyone is interested in ordering multiples.

I finished my quilt!

Last summer I posted when I finished this quilt top. I am very happy to show you the finished product!


Look how pretty! I decided to decorate downstairs with pinks, reds, tans and browns. I am so fortunate that Melody came through town and I could accost her for decorating tips. She told me what to do and I wrote it all down. She's a genius. Anyway, so far we've stained the wood furniture we had dark, dark brown. We have and old dining set that we were just going to get rid of and then decided we'd spray-paint the chairs brown, re-upholster the chairs in fabric coordinating the curtains and quilt, and stain the table-top. It looks great. I'm going to have to search for a before picture and post it with the final outcome.

I thought it would be fun to photograph my 2 year old cuddling up with the quilt. It didn't work out quite like I'd hoped. She was in the middle of watching Backyardigans, you see.

Sophie, please do not wipe your booger on my quilt.

Here she looked at the camera long enough to say, "Go away." Nice.

I couldn't have finished this quilt without my mother-in-law's help. She helped me figure out measurements for the backing, the batting, and the ruffle, and she even paid her good friend Connie to machine-quilt it for me. I love you Louise! I had fun working on this with you and I can't wait to show you now that it's all finished. See you on Thanksgiving!

Sweet and sassy pink floral half apron

A new apron! With pink ric-rac above the hem. I just fell in love with this fabric when I found it.

Black Damask Curtains

Ooh, it's been a LONG time since I've posted on here. Slacker!

I've been sewing curtains for my house and working on a quilt for myself and not spending a lot of time adding to my inventory. I thought I'd post a picture of my latest curtain endeavor as well as the book I've been using to help me do it. I'm really happy with the way these turned out. We painted the office this pretty light blue a few weekends ago and I finished these curtains last week.

Sewn Sweets Breakfast set

Here is my latest creation for my etsy shop - the complete breakfast set. I haven't posted here in a long time, my shop has been pretty busy - who knew there was such a high demand for food made from felt?

This set is features two sunny side eggs, two slices of bacon, a grapefruit half, and two pancakes with syrup that you can put on yourself.

Breakfast set is completely hand sewn.

Baby Crook

I have had my eye on this fabric from Anna Maria Horner's Chocolate Lollipop line for a while. When I saw it in that fun quilt shop in Idaho, I thought immediately of Jayne's new baby and the pink and brown she's using to decorate her and Kennedy's room. I just love it!

I made a blanket with a brown flannel lining. I sewed it envelope-style and then used a decorative top-stitch on the edges and a big "X" through the middle.
I cut one of the little flowers and appliqued it onto a little onesie.
And of course baby Crook needs a matching burp cloth. I think it turned out pretty cute!
I can't wait to meet her!

Sewn Sweets

Hello! Just a note for those of you not in the know, I changed my etsy site name to Sewn Sweets. For those of you who had acutally checked out my site before and saw my previous name - I'm sorry. It was so lame. For those of you who have no idea what I'm taking about, be grateful. It was that bad.

Pretty please, with a cherry on top?

Cookie "Sampler"

There's something for everyone in this cookie "sampler." Like my cupcakes they are completely made from felt and are hand sewn. There are 4 "oreo" cookies, two chocolate chip cookies, and two jam thumbprint cookies with heart cut outs. Perfect for a tea party or to add to one's collection of play food.

Tea Party Cupcakes

Tea Anyone? These are super soft, light weight, felt cupcakes. They feature white cake, pink or purple scalloped edged frosting, and for you Katherine, a dollop of whipped cream on top.

These would make any little girl's tea party. They come in a set of two, and while I only have pink and purple shown here I can make them in any color. They are filled with poly fiberfill and are completely hand sewn. They are 3 1/2 inches tall to the top of the sparkle pom pom, and 3 inches wide.
$8.00/set of two

Lemon Fresh Half Apron

Fresh squeezed lemonade, anyone?

Lemon Apron: $21.95

I've been loving Heather Bailey's blog lately. She has a free pattern on there for her "fresh cut quilt." Once I saw the picture, I knew I had to have it. I've been hunting for coordinating fabrics in the following colors ever since: red, pink, tan, and brown. You may recognize a couple from Sandi Henderson's Farmer's Market line that just came out. I love them.

I finished the quilt top last night and the next part is the ruffle edging. Ruffling is such a pain!

Here's a picture of her finished quilt:

Here She Is
Now, I don't know if I'm breaking some unspoken Girls gone craf-t rule by posting this since I technically did not make it, but I feel like it took an enormous amount of skill on my part to create it. Those skills are 1.) Getting the seed planted in the tiny cup it came in with the help of a 3 and 5 year old (and subsequently replanting it after said 3-year old dumped it out. Twice). 2.) Carefully taking the plant inside and outside so that it would get used to being outside (I don't know if this was neccessary, it just felt right). 3.) Replanting the pumpkin to a larger pot. 4.) Replanting it again once it was large enough to survive the hard clay encrusted dirt we have here. 5.) Lastly, talking to the little (ok, not so little anymore) pumpkin that has grown. That's right, I said talking. It's supposed to be really beneficial to pumpkin plants. It's true. I read it online. So here she is, in all her green glory. I've always wanted a girl.

Pin Cushion

What's that, you ask? You're dying for yet another pinchushion? Of course you are. This is Maude. She features a mod circular print top, cranberry sides, yellow satin ribbon and matching buttons. Don't worry, I can do more than pincushions, I have more tricks up my sleeves. Be on the lookout for my new line of felt play/tea party food.
