Easter Scavenger Hunt

This year, we're having a different type of Easter Hunt.  The girls receive a letter from the Easter bunny and get clues they have to follow to find their baskets. 

I made 11 different rhyming clues that take them to all different locations around the house. 

When they get to each new place they find the next paw print clue and a little gift.  In the bathtub, they find bubbles, when they look in the oven they'll find shrinky dinks.  Looking forward to a fun filled Easter.  Can't wait to see their excitement!

I scanned these pics since I don't know how to add files to share...YET!

Patchwork Dress

I sewed the Penny's Patchwork Twirler dress by Create Kids Couture.  If you haven't sewn one of their patterns, you're missing out.  Shannon and Tiffany are always designing one cute pattern right after another. 

This one definitely has a lot of twirl and when Mia put it on she just wanted to spin round and round.  That didn't make it so easy to get a picture.  

Riley Blake fabrics are so pretty and this combination worked great for this dress.

Seuss Outfit

Mia wore this outfit for Seuss Day.  I wish I had some of that cute Cat in the Hat fabric.  I didn't even have time to order any.  I gathered some fabrics and put them together to make something "Seusslike" that would work for her.

I love the color combination.

She loved getting her picture taken with the Cat.

A Few Sewing Projects

Wow!  I was able to get a picture of the girls looking in the direction of the camera at the same time...it doesn't happen often.  Brooke made this cute little craft from here.  So her embroidered shirt design from Digistitches was perfect. 

How sweet!

Mia picked out the monkey fabric for her skirt with a monkey applique from Embroidery Boutique.  Of course, she made a Valentine box with monkeys on it too. 

Mardi Gras Shirts and they're all set with beads to give to their friends.

Ruffles Galore Pants

Jenny from Seamingly Smitten let me sew her new Ruffles Galore Pants.  My girls love ruffly things so this was something I knew Elise was going to love to wear.  Sure enough...as soon as I finished the outfit...she wanted to put it on.   The pattern was so easy to follow, quick to sew, and the directions and pictures were awesome.  

It really is a great pattern for any level of sewer who wants to make something cute.
 You can make a single layer of ruffles or a double layer of ruffles.  Of course, my daughter wanted more ruffles.

 I used this applique for the shirt which went well with the pants. 

Thanks so much Jenny for letting me so your adorable pattern.

Monopoly.....Wacky Hat Day!

My daughter told me that she needed to make a wacky hat for school. She LOVES Monopoly and likes everything to go together. She looked around the house and found a hat that looks like the one the banker wears. I wanted to embroider the word "banker" on it but..."No mom....I need to make the hat.  You need to make me an outfit for tomorrow.  You can use that Monopoly fabric you bought." 

I was going to make a pillow case with this fabric. 

Instead, we have this skirt.  The hat she made looked cute with the Monopoly money, dice, and the property cards.  She was happy with how everything turned out.

Plum Creek Prairie Girl Dress

This pattern is from Tenderfeet Stitches.  It's thePlum Creek Prairie Girl dress. 

I love the look of these ruffly sleeves and Elise is thrilled that the dress has a bow.  With this pattern, you can make long or short sleeves and add an apron if you choose. 

Amanda has many cute patterns listed in her shop and I just found her Princess Collection.
Super Cute!!!!
