22  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Baby Ewok Costume on: November 05, 2014 07:32:43 AM
We decided to go Star Wars this year for Halloween.  Hubby and I were Jedi's and our 13 month old girl was an Ewok.  I bought the bear costume at a local consignment store for like $5 and then made the headpiece and spear to go with.  The spear is a stick with a felt arrowhead and leather cording on the end.  The headpiece was essentially a long rectangle with the edges sewn over, ear and head holes cut and zigzagged sewn, and then some embroidery here and there.  It was all super easy and quick to make.

Thanks for looking!  ^_^
23  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Halloween Hair Clips on: November 05, 2014 07:23:43 AM
I made this set of hair clips for my daughter.  The little figures were originally those cheapo halloween rings.  I just snipped the ring part off and glued them onto the ribbon covered clips.  Super easy and super cute!

Thanks for looking!  ^_^
24  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / Briella's First Year Guestbook Scrapbook (Picture heavy!!) on: November 05, 2014 07:08:19 AM
Hi there!  I made this scrapbook as a guestbook for my daughter's first birthday party.  It was quite the shindig!  I left spaces on each page for guests to write her birthday wishes and memories from her first year.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, AND that I actually got it done before the party!  I can't believe she's a year old already!  Where did that year go?!  I have so much scrapbooking supplies on hand that I didn't have to buy a single thing.  I even had the scrapbook itself, too!  Smiley

Thanks for looking!
25  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Baby Wrap Headband (w/ Tutorial) on: November 05, 2014 06:06:59 AM
Hi there!  I made a few of these for birthday presents for my niece, and I love how they turned out, so I thought I would share a tutorial with you all in case you would like to make your own for your own sweet baby.

To start, you will need some stretchy fabric.  I prefer for it to be a double stretch (stretchy in both directions) for the best results and comfort.  But, you could probably get away with one direction, too.  The one pictured above if for a 12-18 mo old girl.  I cut my fabric about 24.5" lengthwise and 5" for the width.  Fold over, with the right-sides in, hotdog style and do angled cuts at the end.  Pin along the length of it to prepare for sewing.

Using a stretch stitch on your sewing machine, sew along the entire edge, including the ends, making sure to leave a gap somewhere along the length for turning. (Its not so important to do the stretch stitch on the ends, as it is for the length, since that is where you are going to want some give.  I messed up my first one by not using a stretch stitch, so don't make my mistake!)

Turn it right-side out and sew your gap closed (either hand sew or be lazy and top stitch it closed like I did, since it was in the back I wasn't too concerned).  Then, knot your ends together and BAM you are done!  I didn't secure the knot at all, because I didn't think it needed it.  You could throw in a couple stitches to secure it, if you like.  

Action shot!:

Thanks for looking!  ^_^
26  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Toddler Star Wars Shoes on: November 05, 2014 05:28:25 AM
Hi there!  So I found some perfect black canvas shoes at walmart for like $6 for my daughter that were just calling out to me to be painted.  I decided the girl needed some Star Wars!  I used the Tulip soft fabric paint.  I thinned some of it out with water when using it.  Beware, though, because when that paint come into contact with water, it makes it shimmery/glittery.  I don't know why it does it, it just always have for me in all the colors.  So, my girl's shoes are pretty glam fab now, but she's a girl so it works for her to have sparkly Star Wars.  ^_^

I've saving these bad boys as one of her Christmas presents since they are still too big for her.  So, shhhhh, don't tell her!  Wink Thanks for looking!
