1  Mini Tea Party Set in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Wildflowers on: January 04, 2011 09:10:25 AM

This little dollar store tea set was turned into a gift for my grand daughter to share with her American Girl dolls.  It was a fast gift, easy to make, inexpensive but very loved.

1 dollar store toy tea set
1/3 yard fabric
2 yard trim
scissors, sewing machine with thread
about 20 minutes

The tin "trunk" was also a dollar store find.  I used the plastic the tea set was sold in, trimmed to fit, to display and gift this little girls toy!

2  Amish Puzzle Ball Pincushion as Christmas Ornament in Winter Holidays by Wildflowers on: December 17, 2010 11:33:49 AM
I saw a bowl of these in December 2010 Better Homes and Garden Magazine, but no instructions.  I did a little research so I could make these with poinsettia as my inspiration.

Merry Christmas

4  Mad Men Style Vintage Dress for Halloween Party in Halloween Costumes by Wildflowers on: October 31, 2010 05:06:46 PM

This dress is made from a vintage pattern for Halloween.  The pattern, purchased from ebay, was originally sold via a weekly newspaper insert that advertised a sewing pattern one could send away to obtain.  The postage to mail this pattern was 1 cent!  This dress was made from "vintage" fabric (well about 30 year old fabric) and actually had a vintage zipper and buttons used.  The Cording on the pocket, neck and sleeves was an enhancement and the placket down the front was added to enhance button placement.  The look was a party winner!

5  For a girl who loves horses! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Wildflowers on: October 13, 2010 10:35:27 PM
This is a little project I made for my 7 year old grand daughter who loves horses!  

The Tee shirt was purchased but I machine embroidered the horse head/horse shoe with colors found in the skirt fabric.  The skirt was so easy, made with a yoga style comfy waist band for a little girl.  

See the "how to" on my sewing blog.

Well...someone saw my wreath and "ordered one" as a gift for a friend.  I, of course, was happy to accommodate. While at my local Dollar Store I saw some new colors!  My daughter works on contracts for a major package transporter, and as a result has an office painted in one of their trademark colors!  Not very traditional holiday colors, but I thought...hey I will make her a wreath with non traditional colors since the supplies were available.  Here it is, now I need to use a shipper to get it to her!

It was like Christmas morning when I came home this evening and found a box from my crafting swap partner, Aliselovester!  This was my first swap, so it was extra special.  Before I could fix supper I just had to open my box.

Lookie at what I found, my guest room (along with me) will loved all the new goodies!

First off, so you will know how PERFECT my crafts are, I need you to know I have a Victorian guest bedroom. The carpet is a light moss green and the walls a pale yellow, with lavender as my accent color.

First was this beautiful crocheted clock, the room has the perfect little wall for this!  The lace pattern was selected to remind one of Victorian architecture.

Then I found this sweet, beautifully knitted lacy yellow pillow cover over the perfect green pillow and tied with a lavender satin ribbon.

And here is the beautiful back of the pillow.

(I soooo wish I had this needle work skill!)

I have a big window in this room, and Alicelovester made me these instant lead glass pieces for the window.  They will be so much fun to put on the glass and enjoy with the afternoon sun.

This was so much fun, and I am so grateful to my delightful swap buddy!  She is a very talented lady!
