New Camera Strap!

I recently made this camera strap to add to my etsy shop. It is made with 12 different Amy Butler and Heather Bailey fabrics. It is usually so hard for me to pick just one fabric for something so this time I just used all 12!! Oh and this one has a PINK nylon webbing strap to attach to your camera instead of the normal black, FUN!!
This second strap was a custom order for a customer in Hawaii for her son, I thought these fabrics were perfect!

I have been bad about updating lately, it's just been so crazy!

There are way too many projects I would like to do and not enough time or energy!!! :) (I just need longer days!!)

Here are some key fobs that I have made recently and some of the card cases I did for an order.
Both of these items make GREAT gifts! A friend just bought a few of the key fobs that she is going to tie on the top of presents. I love using mine! It really helps if I have my hands full, I have that on my wrist already and can easily unlock my car without having to dig in my purse!

The card cases have MULTIPLE uses!! You can use them for your business cards, carry your credit cards/ID, or give that special someone a gift card in a cute "envelope" they can re-use!!! My daughters use one in their lunch boxes to hold their ice cream money so it doesn't scatter all over the place.

This is just a small sampling of the ones I did for this order and have some available in my etsy shop!

I haven't been posting much latey.........

but I have been busy sewing!

My youngest daughter's birthday party was last weekend and we had her party here at home. We could not have asked for more perfect weather for her backyard carnival birthday party!!

I didn't get pictures of them but I made the party favor bags out of some cute fun fabric I found at wal-mart. And then I decided that I was not going to pay $20 for a plastic pennant flag thing to string up outside along the path to the backyard so I made one of those too! I made one for under $5! I will have to pull them out and take pics later they all turned out so cute!
I embellished an outfit for my daughter as part of her birthday present. She had kind of helped pick out the fabrics that I would use, Farmer's Market by Sandi Henderson. I absolutely love these fabrics, they are so bright and vivid!!

I will post some more tomorrow on the other things that I have been busy making!
Thanks for visiting!!!

In Loving Memory...

My Grandmother passed away on Sunday, October 26th. She was 91 years old! She lived at home until last December. I was lucky enough to spend a couple of days visiting with her the week before she died. My Grandmother and Grandad raised my brother and I, so she was more like my mother than Grandmother. She was an excellent seamstress and who I learned a lot of my sewing skills from. I know she had me rip out many stitches!!! I am so very sad to have lost her but know that she is no longer in pain and now gets to see the Lord!!
