A little Spring, A little Minnie

A few weeks ago I picked up some plain tshirts really cheap at Gymboree with plans to applique on them.  Saturday Jillian and I hit Hancock fabric to look for some fabric to go with them.  I knew I wanted to use one of them to make an Easter shirt and skirt and I wanted to find something cute to go with the other shirt so I could make a Minnie Mouse shirt for our upcoming trip to Disney World (shhh.... Jillian doesn't know about it, we will be going in November). 

Here is what I came up with.

To make this shirt I used Made's Market Skirt tutorial and the applique design is by Planet Applique.  I am thinking about adding some light blue (it's hard to see in the picture but the leaves are blue and green) pockets to the front of the skirt but I'm afraid to mess it up! 

For the Minnie Mouse outfit I wanted something "different" so I didn't go for the typical red, white and black, I think Jillian might wear this one of the days we visit Epcot.  For the skirt I used Made's Circle Skirt tutorial and I got the applique design from Bows and Clothes.

Don't forget, you still have two days left to enter my giveaway!!!!   Check it out!

Faux Stained Glass

I got this idea from All Thumbs Crafts and as soon as I saw it I KNEW I had to try it out!  I've had a package of Alcohol inks for probably over a year and its just sat on my shelf.  I decided to try this out on a plain vase I had around the house.  Also needed for this project is a can of canned air.

I started out by dropping a few drops of the lightest color ink, i dropped some on the side too. 

Then spray away with your air!

I followed my yellow with pink and then teal. 

I kept working around the vase until all the blank areas were colored!  Some of the colors mixed to make new colors, I LOVE how it turned out. It was REALLY rainy this weekend but next time the sun is out I'll take some better pictures outside to show it off better!

Too Short Jeans Into Shorts!

My tall skinny girl is constantly growing out of her jeans in the length but they still fit fine in the waist.  She can actually still wear 18-24 month in the waist but her 4T jeans are too short!  When shopping for some spring clothes for her I noticed that there are TONS of cute cuffed looks this year and figured instead of buying her shorts I can just turn the jeans into cuffed shorts! 

I marked right above her knees.

Then cut one side off.

Then folded the cut side over the uncut side and matched them up. 

Then cut the 2nd side off.

I folded both sides over about an inch.

Then folded them a 2nd time.

The look great and saved us money!

Before I blogged... my applique work

I was going through some files on my computer tonight and found a folder with pictures of some of the appliqued clothes I have done in the past and thought you might be interested in seeing some of my favorites.
