I made a pillowcase dress for my niece that was trimmed with the pompoms. Love it!!!

My front page was acrylic with just a title and a few simple embellishments. Then I did a few pages of different type of products. I used quite a bit of stitching on the pages... and of course my favorite thing right now is gathered ribbon that is stitched on.

I wish I would have been able to get a lot more done, but I had a little helper that kept me from doing everything that I wanted to do!!!

So, I busily got to work sewing strips of fabric down the middle and gathering them. Then I used my trusty hot glue gun and glued them on my lamp shade. So cute, so easy, I am so blonde sometimes, but I'm not blonde.
And look how cute my guest bedroom is!!!
I thought that it would be appropriate to do a tutorial on exactly how to do an applique.
2. Trace the pattern onto an iron on product such as Heat-n-bond.
3. Place the Heat-n-bond onto the wrong side of the fabric.
4. Cut the heat-n-bond and the fabric down to a size that is a little bigger than your pattern. Then iron the heat n bond onto the fabric according to package directions.
5. Cut your pattern out and peel the paper backing off.
6. Iron the applique onto whatever you are attaching it to according to package directions.
8 Sew all the way around and you are done!
I had bought this shirt on clearance at Old Navy for 97cents. It was kind of plain and I wanted to dress it up a bit. I wasn't sure if my 5 year old would like it or not. When I showed it to him he absolutely loved it! I think he will look so adorable in this with some tan pants. It totally looks like a grandpa tie.

Most of my kitchen chairs.
This cute chair goes in my craft room, but it is so cute I couldn't resist taking my baby's picture on it!
