A Glimpse into my passion

Girls Fall Fashion Roundup

The weather is cooling down and it’s all about adding layers and fun accessories to your girl’s wardrobe!  That’s what I do every time the season changes since my girl insists on wearing skirts and dresses no matter how cold it is.  Here I styled a Fall fashion collection around one of my ruffle skirts.  Now I want to pick up all of these cute pieces.  Wouldn’t this be cute for Fall pictures?  I think so!

Kids Easy Sewing DIY

Learning to use needle and thread

Today I’m sharing a fun little DIY of sorts for your kids (best for 4 year olds and up)!

Hannah loves to sit at my sewing table while I work.  Often she’s playing in her own little world but lately she has been so interested in whatever I’m making, and asks “One day when I’m big like you can I do that?”.  Today when she asked, I thought what better time to start than now!  So, I decided to let her experiment with a needle and thread with some simple felt shapes.  It was a hit!  And one day when she is super creative and famous she can say it all started when she was four!  Right???

Super Easy Instructions:

1. Find some scrap felt and cut out simple shapes.  Ask your child what shapes they would like.  It gets them even more excited!

2. Cut a length (not too long) of embroidery floss in a contrasting color.  That way your child can see the stitches better!

3.  Thread the needle, tie a knot and let them start stitching.

Simple right?

I gave Hannah a little instruction to prevent her from pricking herself but other than that I just let her experiment.  The expressions on her face are just priceless!

I hope this inspires you to let your little ones experiment with a needle and some thread!

Dreaming of Spring

I don’t know about you, but I am dreaming of Spring! I can’t wait to open up the windows and let all of that fresh air in or to sit outside and soak up the sun while listening to the birds chirp.  Ahhh, I can’t wait!

Things have been a bit quiet over here mostly because I’m sewing up a storm!  I’ve been working on lots of beautiful little things for my Spring show in Shakopee, MN.  I’m really looking forward to it!  Hopefully soon I’ll have lots of pretty photos of everything to share with you, but for now here are a few of some of my favorite Spring finds!

Happy dreaming!
