Easy Tote Tutorial

I think I’ve mentioned I’m a fabric hoarder. I see. I like. I buy… whether I have use for it or not. I admit, it has gotten out of control. So I’m on a mission to start downsizing… if possible! Some fabrics were intended for a particular person, so I decided to start with those. I purchased this one for the little ballerina in the family… my niece Lianna. I […]

Old Turned New {Fall Wreath}

Do you follow me on Instagram or Facebook? If you don’t, what are you waiting for?! Those of you that do may have seen some sneak peaks of my latest project… my old turned new fall wreath! What does that mean exactly? It just means I took the wreath I made last fall and gave it a makeover. Yup, a makeover! It asked for one, so it got one Yes, my […]

Feather Apron Flower Girl Dress

Feathers. Feathers. Feathers. Pieces here… pieces there… they were practically everywhere! But in the end it was all worth it! In case you missed my last two posts, here’s the summary: My sister asked me to help with my niece’s flower girl dress. The theme of the dresses was feathers. That was the bride’s only requirement… the rest was up to the mommies. I’ve never worked with feathers, but I knew […]

Satin, Lace & Feathers

Is it just me or did this week go by pretty quick? It’s already Friday, and we have a long weekend to enjoy. Yay! But before you go off to enjoy your weekend, I would love for you to hang out with me for a couple of minutes or so! I promise, I won’t keep you. If you haven’t grabbed your coffee yet (or tea if you prefer), go ahead […]

Denim Jacket Makeover & Giveaway Winner

If you are a Target addict like I am… and if you have daughters… then you probably have seen this denim jacket… Cute, isn’t it? I loved the worn out denim look with the polka dots. In general, I just love denim jackets. But there are those occasions that you want the denim jacket look but not necessarily the long sleeves. With Eid falling during the summer season, Suraya’s Eid […]

Winter Wonderland Vignette

When it snows, ain’t it thrilling, Though your nose gets a chilling We’ll frolic and play, the Eskimo way, Walking in a winter wonderland. Since I put this vignette together, I can’t seem to get the song Winter Wonderland out of my head. Walking in a winter wonderland. In the lane, snow is glistening. Now grab your coat and take a walk with me in my winter wonderland. ;) This […]

Petaled Satin Fabric Flower

One last wedding related post, I promise! This time this project is for Susu.. her hair accessory. I had planned to make Susu the same style hair clip as I did for Suraya, but I wanted Susu’s to have a petaled look and fuller. I had planned to substitute the circle cut outs with flower cut outs. The obvious idea, right? Well, Jonie over at Just Between Friends had a […]

Satin Flower Hair Accessory

Suraya is all ready for her role as the flower girl in her uncle’s wedding. Dress… check! Shoes… check! Jewelry (pearl earrings and pearl bracelet)… check! Flower basket… check! And now hair accessory… yup, that’s a check too! It was an easy one to make. Here, I’ll show you… I used two different shades of pink satin fabric and white. I also included a few pieces of netting in there as […]

Flower Girl Baskets

I wasn’t crazy about the flower girl baskets that the craft stores sell nor do I think they are worth their price. I found gorgeous baskets on Etsy that are more than what I want to spend even though they appear to be well deserving of their prices. So the only solution left was for me to make one myself. But of course! I made two baskets; one for Suraya […]

Ruffles & Flowers Pillows

Suraya’s pillows are done! I think they turned out cute! Suraya thought so too! I mixed them up with ruffles and flowers working with fabric I already had on hand. I’m going with the purple, aqua, and pink color scheme, so these three fabrics couldn’t have been more perfect! If you recall, I did tell you I have a “fabric shop” in my house… well that’s what my hubby calls it:) […]
