They call me Suzie Homemaker
Yep, yet another cake and crafty candles I made for my grandparent’s 60th wedding anniversary.
Dresses for my little lady (well, were working on the lady part) …
McCalls Patterns are very modest compared to others. The one above is a size 3, so she’ll have to grow into it. I couldn’t pass up this Pooh and Tigger fabric!!! Below is a dress made from a vintage pillow case. It works great as a smock to keep her clean during project time. You can find this pattern online for free. I bought a book full of sewing ideas just from pillow cases.
PJs for kids and their favorite stuffed animals. This pattern was VERY easy, as it said on the pattern. I made up the Build-a-bear puppy pjs on my own.
Jonathan needed a cool quilt and pillow to use in the crib. Only coincidentally did the remnant satin I found at JoAnns on separate occasions happen to be Vikings colors! (Go MN Vikings!) Let’s just say Tom’s a little jealous that I didn’t make this for him…
Found this dolly stroller for free, made a new cover/seat. It’s fun to be thrifty and fix old treasures up!
I’ve been scrapbooking traditionally and digitally with my favorite Creative Memories products. Here’s just ONE of my current projects amongst about a dozen I’ve been working on.
(Book to fill with 4x6 photos) Honestly only took me a few minutes once I picked out which photos I wanted to use.
And one more fun project to show you… combining photos of my kids for their frames on the wall. Nope – I couldn’t leave them plain!
Yes, this was all very fun – and barely touches on what I’ve been working on this past month.
If you want to know how I made any of these things, just ask!
