Where have I been? Well, I still have been sewing and have tons of things to show, but I have been so busy that I haven't even tried blogging. But I could not resist showing my most favorite thing I have made. Ok, I say that about everything. I have wanted to make a petticoat tutu for a long time, but could never find the right material for it. Well, I finally found it. And 4 1/2 yards later, yes that is a lot of fabric. I made the perfect little skirt. Don't you just love it!!!!!

EVERYONE NEEDS A CUTE BOOK BAG!
At The Quilt Shoppe in Stewartsville, where I work. They have this fabulous book that has tons of sewing things to do for your kids. One of them was this wonderful book bag. How could I pass this up. I mean how cute is this. It is a mushroom house. It took some work, but the results were great. They do have a boy version which my youngest son wants me to make. It is a cute little robot! Since I am snowed in this week, maybe I can get a chance to make it for him.

I Don't Know Where She Gets This!!!
I can't for the life of me figure out where my daughter gets all this girlie-ness from! I am not girlie. But she wants the dresses the dress up shoes the bracelets the make-up and the ATTENTION!! My older daughter, Parker, is nothing like this. yes, I have more kids than Hadlee. I know that I always show pictures of Hadlee. It's just easier and faster making things for her.
Speaking of making things, what you think of my new skirt. It is all my idea, no pattern and I love it. There are some things I am going to fix on the next one. I can' wait to show you, just need time and motivation to get sewing. Went to Walmart today with four kids. Need I say more.
And one more thing, my camera is old so excuse the less than perfect, ok terrible pictures. Don't get me wrong it was a really nice camera five years ago when my husband bought it for me, but from all the kids dropping it, because I never did that, it has seen better days. Anyone have a great camera they want to tell me about, please do. Valentine day is just around the corner

My daughter, the one who is crying in the top picture, is OBSESSED with stuffed animals! If I would let her, the bed she sleeps in would have at least 15 stuffed animals in bed with her. Well, I decided to make her a stuffed animal. The first, the pink polka dot bunny, was a pattern I got from a book. The blue bunny was just an after thought of scraps that I had. So when I wanted to finish the big bunny and put on a face, or even take pictures, Hadlee has decided that those are hers and no one can have or touch them. i.e. the picture at the top. Loved making these bunnies!!!
