I'm (Pretending to be) Competitive

I've known about Made By Rae's Spring Top Week contest for quite a while now... and with Friday being the last day to enter, I thought I better hurry and get something submitted. So last night I sat myself down and whipped this baby out. I have to admit, I like it.

I made the shirt from an extra large plain t-shirt I had in my sewing stash and some sweet trim I got from the thrift store awhile ago. I got the basic idea from a shirt I already own and love and modified it to be a longer, tunic-style shirt with cap sleeves.

Here is a close-up of the pretty, pretty trimming. I heart it.

The trim that goes around the waist is only attached to the front center and then ties in the back. Like so:

Easy peasy and perfect for spring! I feel so accomplished! :)

Old Favorites

So basically I've dropped off the face of the crafting world. Sorry. In my effort to inspire myself (for when I finally have the time to craft) I decided to re-post some of my favorite craft projects (ya know, from the good ol' days when I had more than enough time to craft).

Can I just say how cute I think appliqued baby onesies are? And this one? I loved it. You can't tell but the blue has tiny white polka-dots all over it. So cute.

A birthday crown and garland. I made this for a giveaway a while ago and I still love it (I even had to go back and make some of that garland for myself). So many bright and happy colors.

 Every time I pull out this scissors case it makes me happy inside. I heart embroidery. And felt.

See? Embroidery = love.
