Made with love.

As mentioned earlier, my nieces birthday is coming up. We were supposed to have her party today at the park. However, the rain decided to join us this morning. Therefor the princess party will be postponed until tomorrow afternoon.
Here's a few things that I made for her...

Every little girl needs bows and hair ties.

I thrifted this GORGEOUS knit sweater earlier this week at Amvets near downtown. I was just chuffed to bits when I found it! (haha! I've been wanting to use that phrase ever since I learned it this week!) I could not believe the amazing color and how cute all of the pattern was! Now, when I found it, it was just the sweater. On our way home, the sweater and I, made a stop by Yardage Town for some fabric and buttons. Now it's the PERFECT sweater for the cutest little 3 year old I know.
I'm so excited for her party tomorrow. Her mama has been working really hard putting this all together. It's going to be lots of fun! And it's so much fun watching Skyla open her presents.

After making the hair pieces and sweater, I was inspired to make a Christmas ornament. Here it is! What do you think?! I'm debating making more like it. Also, what do you think about the rosette hair pieces? I think I'm going to make a lot of them for the shop, but would like some feedback before I do.

I hope you are enjoying your Halloween weekend. We have been so busy these past few weeks that we didn't really make any plans for tomorrow night. We're kind of bummed about it, but maybe it could be a date night

Are you dressing up this year?

  1. REALLY jealous of your niece. Seriously. Everything looks amazing, I would absolutely make more of EVERYTHING! I think those Christmas ornaments would be great presents/stocking stuffers! The bows are also very cute, I like the idea of having some smaller ones for younger girls, and maybe ones a tad more extravagant for say.... me?!

  2. Love it all, I want to know when these ornaments are coming!! We were garden gnomes for Halloween! I have pics up :) Skyla is LUCKY. JEALOUS.
