“Hello! My name is Stacey, and I love to make cakes, knit, paint, sew, craft and SHOP. I’m very new to blogging, but so far LOVE all the creative ideas that I get from so many talented folks out there! Most of my inspiration comes from my two wonderful kiddos and my sweet Hubby! Life keeps me hoppin’ but I love staying busy, and all the BLESSINGS in my life are just the ICING on the CAKE!”
My sweet princess asked for an apron that went down to her feet, so that’s what she got. It was very easy to make and didn’t cost a thing since I was able to use some left over fabric that I had laying around.
I first took a piece of white fabric and cut it into a rectangle. I sewed the edges and than layed out the strips of fabric.
I placed each one about 3/4″ underneath the strip of fabric that was above it.I hemmed each strip and then sewed the top of each strip with my sewing machine, but did not create a knot, so that I could pull the thread and create a ruffled look.
I sewed each strip onto the white fabric and than sewed a piece of ribbon at the top.Wah-Lah! A floor length apron fit for a princess.
St. Patty’s Day Wreath
Erin Go Bragh! We love St. Patty’s Day at our house and to help decorate, I made this wreath for our front door!
It was very easy to make but a tad time consuming. I bought 4 heart shaped pieces of foam ($2 each), 1 yard each of two different shades of green fabric ($4.19), 1 package of glittery foam sheets (3.99), Foam glue (already had, but it’s probably around $2), 1 little piece of faux black leather fabric (already had), gold pen (already had but I think it’s about $2), Chuck E Cheese’s Tokens (we have plenty in our reserves here at the house), and finally, 1 piece of green ribbon.
I used my rotary cutter to cut the fabric into 2X2″ squares.
