plain to fancy jean pockets

This was simple... cut out the size of lace you need and sew the sides to the pocket and...WA la! simple to fancy in minutes. I got the lace at Handcock fabrics for only $1.50 for the whole spool! these are brand new jeans for only 10 dollars at forever 21. talk about super saving!

lace love

I Always get so sick of layering a dress with the same cardigans so i decided to put sleeves on it! its a nice modest way to stay cool in the summertime and still be fashionable.

re-style ruffle shirt

This is my new way to get school clothes. I go buy simple things with no pattern and make them into my own signature clothing brand : ) i love it because its super cheap and cute! plus nobody will have any of the clothes that i do (not to mention that its super fun to use my creativity).

 This is Madison and Loys. they are now engaged and wanted me to take their photos. I was thrilled that they would give me this great opportunity! We went to a beautiful park with a lot of farm land and I thought it was the perfect place to take their pictures. she wants to have a country like wedding. they are so adorable together and I hope you enjoy these photos.
These are moccasins that i made! i got a kit from the scout store and just tied them together only 15 dollars! you can find them at any scout store in different colors. the scout store is not only for boys.

My old fashioned dress

This was such a fun project! i made it last night in four hours for church today : ) i have so much fun sewing. i did not use a pattern i just came up with it in my head. i love the old styles so i decided this dress would show some off that old fashion taste.

this was also a very cheap project i got all the fabric and lace for 8 dollars!

owl shirt

this shirt was really easy i just cut out simple shapes of fabric from my scraps and put them together to make this adorable owl shirt!

book cover i made

peach filled dumplings

these are delicious! peach filled dumplings! i made the dough and then sliced up fresh peaches added sugar cinnamon and nutmeg then added a sugar glaze on top and baked them in the oven.

 this bag was so fun to make! i didn't have a pattern so it was completely up to me to how it was made. i love lace so i decided to include that. My friend Madison gave me the idea to have a bow for the strap so WA la! i hope you all enjoy : )

bedtime quilt

 this quilt was so easy to make. i cut up two squares of fabric for one piece sewed an X stitch to hold them together.
 then i attached row by row by sewing the sides together. then I attached each row to each other to make the rectangle shape.
I then cut the edges of the fabric that was extra from me sewing them together to make the frayed look on the edges of each square.

i took this picture in an abandoned lot with old cars just laying around.
it is a great spot for pictures because of the old look to the cars and the giant grass growing.

we found this wall it is beautiful with the ivory growing up it.
