My husband has been gone for 5 weeks, and they are finally coming home next week. So to welcome my sailor back I made my daughter a little sailor dress. It has anchor buttons on the back but I didn't snap a pic of that.
So my husband is out to sea right now and my brother in law graciously offered to mow our yard. I was so so thankful so I made him an apple pie because he loves pie. Here is how it turned out- it is huge! Pre top crust- there are over 4 pounds of apples!
With the top crust before baking- After baking- Is it wrong that now I don't want to give it to him? The house smells so good!
Hey Ya'll. So I made up a onesie so that my daughter, who already looks like her daddy, can now be even more like him. I mocked up his tattoos onto a onesie for her. Hope you like it. And hopefully she won't be asking for any real ones until she's 18. First, a shot with daddy and baby, notice the dog snuck in, and my crafty area in the back.
Close up of the shirt. His belly tattoo says In God I Trust, but hers says In Milk I Trust.
Okay, so I'm posting these because I just finished sewing this, and despite now hating myself for even daring to try chiffon, here it is completed and pretty much wearable. This was a labor for sure, and I should have known better as the lady was cutting it at the store and said "You're going to have fun sewing this" Ha! Yeah right. Here is the front,
And here is a grainy pic of the back with a vintage yellow button from my mom's stash. Anyway, I'm posting because I need praise after nearly killing myself sewing this!
This is my first post to the food boards, but I made these cakes for a wedding this past weekend and was too proud to not share. So here you go, an orange iced red velvet cake for the bride, and a chocolate chocolate groom's cake for, well, the groom.
Here are two different takes on the same pattern. One is summery and in cotton, the other turned out to be a little more dressy. I like them both and they have the added bonus of having pockets, which I didn't realize at first. Super easy to sew, and I'm not super experienced with clothing.
