Make it Monday…

I finally sat down to sew. It’s been so long time and I needed it. I made myself a zipper pouch using this fabric.

I had been wanting to make myself a pouch for a long time and just never got around to doing it. I Love sewing. It takes me back to when I would spend hours in the darkroom developing film or printing photos. To me they are so similar and I’m probably the only person that sees it that way.

I haven’t made one of these pouches in years and look at me, I sewed it wrong.

I feel like a rookie lol

It looks fine, but the zipper opening is on the right and it should have been on the left side. I’m still going to use it and next time I’m going to pay attention to what I’m doing.

Have a great week. Danigirl if you’re reading this, Tia Loves you.


I love baseball (gooooo Angels)!!!

I love crafting!!!

Today I brought them together to help my sister with decorations for a retirement party. I’m not done and I also didn’t take very many pictures. Hopefully more tomorrow.

These are going to go in a basket full of baseball goodies.

I just have to throw in some Angels pictures lol.

The Big A.

This is where I hang out from April-September and this year hopefully, in October too. 

See you at the Ball park or in a craft room somewhere. 

Bonnet and apron…

Dear Angie, 

Thank you for asking me to make your bonnet and apron. I loved making them for you and it makes my heart happy that you love them.

I’ve enjoyed making everything all month for National Craft Month, but this is probably my favorite thing I’ve made so far. 

Angie’s mom Maricela asked me for help making this for Angie, I’m always excited to help kids with school projects. 

I had never made this style of bonnet before. So this was fun.

I’ve made a lot of half aprons before so this went by super fast. It’s a little bit or a lot wrinkled because this muslin just wasn’t cooperating with me.

How cute does Angie look.

Look A.

Look B.

Look C.

I think she’s going with A!!!

A huge thanks to all of you that have been following my blog all month long.

Happy Tyson Tuesday.

Baby headbands…

Happy Monday. Happy spring. 

I had to make a paper flower on the first day of spring. I didn’t finish it, but I plan on making a sprint bouquet in the next few days. This flower is about 6 inches big. The bouquet is going to be huge! 

Baby Itzel is one month old today. Her mom sent me this picture. She used papers flowers I made firm her baby shower for the number 1.

And here are some headbands I made for Itzel.

For this one I used the same technique I use to make paper flower centers. 

These felt bows are super easy to make.

I make them with paper too. Felt or paper, they can be used for so many things.

I also made some with some paper flowers.

Now I want to make some for myself lol.

Between her mom, granny, her tia and myself. We were in her nerves lol.

She is so precious.
Have a great week.

Flower crown…

Monday already? Sometimes I wish the week would go by as fast as the weekend does. Today’s craft took me about 20 minutes and cost around 2 dollars. 

I don’t know if flowers crowns are still the in thing, but I recently made one for a Mexican themed baby shower and the mommy looked so cute. 

I bought these paper flowers at Daiso. The floral wire is from Michael’s. I like using that one because you don’t have to wrap it with tape. Only wrapping you have to do it to close it. You can also use a headband and avoid any taping at all.

These mini roses are about 2 inches big and perfect is you just want something smaller. 

I’m not worried about the tape showing. Once you’re wearing it, you can’t see it at all. 

Quick tip when making these, glue some of the leaves down to hold the flowers in place. You can’t really see the leaves anyway so you won’t miss them. You can always buy extra leaves to hold the flowers even more in place.

I couldn’t find anybody to wear the crown for a picture, but this is what it looks like.

And this is the one I made for the mommy to be. She looked so beautiful. 

Have a great week <3
