Valentines Quiet Book

I found an amazing blog with some awesome free quiet book patterns. Go check out her stuff at: http://www.imagineourlife.com/2012/01/16/valentine-mini-quiet-book/ You can also find the pattern on her web page.

After looking at her adorable pages and books I finally decided to make my first ever quiet book. Currently I don't have all of my sewing embellishments or scraps so I have had to buy the stuff or go "shopping" at my mom's house.

I made a few changes from the one on the blog, but I think  it turned out pretty cute. My son loves playing with the quiet books I've made. I will post the other two quiet books eventually. They still have a few minor details that need to be added before they are completed.

Pink frosting with white sprinkles. I used beads and sequins for the sprinkles.

Pioneer Costume

Please ignore the messy house in the background. I didn't have time to clean my home the few days that I worked on this project. Also the threads and the tired look on Kari's face, it was late and we were both super tired.

This is a Pioneer costume that I made. It was all made without a commercial pattern. I did make a pattern for the bodice so it would fit Kari's figure, the rest including sleeves were made up as I went. I think it turned out pretty good. We tried to get it as historically correct as we could with limited funds, and comfort in mind. We did not make any petticoats, and made it short sleeves instead of long. All in all I think it turned out pretty darn cute!

Bag of all Bags

This is my latest creation. This is my range bag (for caring shooting supplies) or 72 hr bag. 










Sewing Class

Started teaching a 13 year old in my area how to sew. I am so excited to be teaching her once a month new techniques and methods!

New Project?

I really need a new project to work on but can't think of anything. Any ideas out there?
