Sunshine Betty Boop Wristlet

Found this free Sunshine Wristlet pattern from Bagstock and couldn't wait to try it. I used a Betty Boop fabric that I had in my stash and she came out so lovely. ❤ 
The faux leather goes perfect with Miss Feisty Betty Boop. 
This wristlet has an inner zipper pocket and a slip pocket. Perfect to carry just the essentials when going on quick shopping trip.

Super Heroes Coraline Pouch

It's hard to pick my favorite Swoon pattern but the Coraline Wristlet has to be on the top of the list.
The Coraline Wristlet was easy and quick to make, instructions were clear and simple and the end result was more than satisfying. 
Picked out this Super Girl Fat Quarter at Walmart and it was perfect for this wristlet. Walmart has so many character fabrics at a great price that I'm tempted to go on a fabric shopping spree. 
Can't wait to make more of these.

Bought at Walmart as a Fat Quarter. Here's a couple links that carry the fabric.

Set To Go Cosmetic Case

For about a month now I've been telling myself this is the year to make diy Christmas gifts. I started off with the Set To Go Cosmetic Bag Set pattern from Uniquely Michelle. This pattern comes with 2 different styles of cosmetic bags. I decided to sew up the Cosmetic Case. 
This was my first time working with faux leather and it wasn't as hard as I thought. Also my first time with a drop in lining. That was a little hard for me. But it turned out way better than I thought it would.
Like I said earlier this bag was made for a Christmas gift but my daughter took one look at it and said "Hmm, who likes pink, black and leather?" It's hers now. 

If you would like to purchase the pattern to make your own cosmetic case you can find the pattern here.

Super Hero Notebooks

Had a little bit of fun this past week. I made these superhero notebooks for myself because I'm a geek and I love stationary. They were super fun to make. I used Silhouette files from the Silhouette Design store and the Bind-It-All to bind everything together.

Jack Skellington Car Decal

Thing I love about the Silhouette Cameo.

  • can make cards
  • cut and print
  • design your own designs
  • make vinyl decals
  • etc, etc, etc
My daughter inherited my old car about 7 months ago and she has been asking me since then to make a car decal. But not just any car decal, a Jack Skellington decal. I had never worked with vinyl before so that's why I procrastinated. So today while she was at class I made her decal. It wasn't hard at all. So glad she made me do it!!

Create Canvas

 Quick and easy 12"x4" canvas I made for my craft room.
All I did is paint the canvas in Coastal Waters from DecoArt American acrylic paint.  I let that dry and cut out the front panel and hearts from Recollections Tattered and Worn paper pack. I adhered that to the canvas with Golden matte medium.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the word Create. I felt the hearts needed a little something so I drew faux stitches with a black marker.  Added a few rhinestones and that's it folks. I love fun and easy projects.

Thanks for stopping by!
