Diaper Bag from Pinterest!

So I am totally addicted to Pinterest!  Well, I figure it's not worth spending countless hours pinning stuff if I don't actually do something from it.  I needed a new diaper bag so I thought this was a good time to use a pattern I found here.  I actually made two.  The first one was a little small so I changed the size and made it bigger.  I put 3 pockets across the front for bottles and two across the back and also two inside.  I also tried out my new sewing & embroidery machine (brother innov-is 1500D).  I bought the font on Etsy and used PE Design 8 software to create Charlotte's name and resize it.

Canvas Corp & Imaginisce Blog Hop

I was asked to make an item for the Canvas Corp & Imaginisce blog hop.  I created this purse!  It's my own design.  I figured it's time to stop buying tutorials and make something from scratch.  So here's my purse.  I used the Sole Sisters line from Imaginisce and added in some Canvas Corp paper.  I'd been waiting for the right project to come along to use their cow print.  I just love it!  I also used beads and wire to create the handle.

Creative Women Entry -June

For my June entry to the design team at SSD I used all Canvas Corp products:  Blue jean 12x12 for top, apron with red glimmer mist, flower accented with 4th of July paper and a star.

Baby's First Hand Made Dress

I love this pattern.  It's close to my heart.  I used this pattern over 10 years ago to make Kayla's first hand made dress.  I felt it fitting to do the same for Charlotte and start a new tradition.
