Emmie’s New Coat

So I wish I was kidding, but I literally started this project January of 2014. (as my instagram account can attest) Thankfully I made it too big for Emmie, because it still fits her well, especially considering how much she has grown this year. I got it 80% done, but then ran out of steam…

Elsa {Halloween 2014}

      So, Miss Emmie (along with a million other little girls this year) wanted to be Elsa, I told her that she would be in the same costume as a lot of people, but alas the Frozen heart wants, what the Frozen heart wants! I made the dress out of a blue poly…

My Version of an Anthropologie Cardigan, part 1

I Love this cardigan from Anthropologie, but did not love the $98 price tag I decided that I could definitely make something similar for less – little did I know for how much less! I went into the Salvation Army Store on Wed (that’s the day all clothes are half price) and found this grey…

Hi! and a shirt redo ☺
