I love the way this outfit turned out. . When I saw this pattern I knew what I wanted to do. I had the pink and red fabric in my stash. I went off to the fabric store to find the other fabric to finish it off. I like the cross over top, it is perfect to add some accent color. I thought the green really went well with the pink. Since there was red in the main fabric that's where I went. The red really set off the top. The red also worked well for the pants with the different prints for the ruffles. The ruffles were in different sizes to make it a fun look. The yo yo's were a fun accent on the top and on the pants above the ruffles. It is really a cute set for a casual affair.

I love This fun and funky outfit. It is in a British theme. The skirt is a red plaid gingham twirly skirt. The Tee is appliqued in the red plaid fabric and says Love with Brit's embroidered next to it. The denim jacket is trimmed in the red plaid. On the back is appliqued with London and a British flag in slightly different colors. On the front is a British flag in the shape of a heart. The leggings are blue shaded lace. The outfit is so fun and funky.

I saw these cute dresses in a high end children's catalog. I knew they would be so easy to copy and save some big money. They are very simple but made with lace and the lining to match . The bows on the shoulder set it off. I think they look elegant in a very simple way. They could be made in under a hour. The girls seemed to like them too.
I had a really fun time making the cutest Easter baskets for my greandkids. I made about 10 in pink and blue. The pink I put a ruffle around the waist on the blue I put a pocket with a handkerchief on the rear. I think the fuzzy bunny tail really set it off. They are fast and easy to make. They could be made for different holidays. Red for Santa, Green for St Pat's. You could get really creative.

I have gotten carried away making tee shirt scarves. They are so fast and easy. I went to the local thrift store and bougt several tee shirts in lots of colors. You do not even need a sewing machine to make them. You need a cotton tee shirt without seams. The larger the size the bigger the scarf. You cut off the bottom hem and discard. Cut the shirt in strips. You can cut from 1/2 in on up/ I have been using about 1 1/2 in. Start stretching as hard as you can. It will curn up into a cord. Take a scape and tie them all together. That's it. Hope you enjoy making them.
