Odds and Ends

These are some bows I made for when my sister-in-law was visiting to match some of her little girl's outfits for school.

 This three tone brown one I made for Tegan to match a little brown polkadot dress I got from the thrift store. Love it!

When my mom was visiting many moons ago she would just whip up crocheted stuff for my kids and Tegan's dolls. She was soooo fast.  She asked if she could make me anything, and I said I'd always wanted one of those thick crocheted ear warmers, but I never wanted to spend the money on them.  We found a pattern online and she made if for me in like 10 minutes.  She's amazing!!!

 How do you cuteify summer cut offs?  Just add a little lace.  It should look cute when it ruffles up a little after washing too.

 Here's a posey pin flower I saw and wanted to make. I really like it, but I'd like to try other fabrics and colors as well.

Just a scrap sheer fabric burnt flower pin.

I was able to fly to my little brother's wedding back in May.  My mom told me their reception colors were light pink and green and I wanted to make some flowers to match that I could wear.

Then I made just a white flower ribbon belt to go with whatever I wanted =0).

This is a skirt I grabbed at the thrift store that turned out to be a little too short, so I added a thick white strip at the bottom. I think with the right top (which I don't currently have) it'll look great. 

Interchangeable Shoe Flowers

These I love love love! I did them a while ago, and just never got around to posting.  I wear them ALL the time.  All you need is velcro!  Add one side of the velcro to your shoe or sandal, and the other side to the back of your flower, and WA LA...interchangeable flowers for your shoes.  Then of course you make a hair clip, or pin to match.  

Fun fun fun!

Bows for Gifts

When Tegan gets invited to a birthday party for a friend that is a girl, I usually just make bows for their present.  With all those parties the cost of presents can really add up.  This may take more time, but because I enjoy doing it, and I already have all the stuff, it's totally worth it to me.  Tegan on the other hand, does not love it.  She has said a couple times that she wants to start buying her friends toys instead.  At least I know the moms usually love the bows =0).

Here are a couple sets I managed to take pictures of before we wrapped them up.

These are pins I made for the kid's teachers at the end of school last year.

These are some head bands with interchangeable flowers I made for a baby shower.  They are so awesome.  You make the head band out of tights.  They are so soft and stretchy, I was kicking myself for not knowing how, or trying to do it when Tegan was a baby.  She didn't get hair until she was 2 and all I had were a couple of those thin tight head bands that would squeeze her little head.  I was enjoying it so much I might have a gotten a little carried away =0).

This one is not interchangeable and it's actually made out of an old stretchy shirt. I love it too!

This was another baby shower where I made sure I didn't go too over board.
