Bunnies and sack lunches

Bunny slippers for Ava made from this pattern. I also made a the same exact pair but smaller for Heidi's new baby but I forgot to take a photo.

A new apron made from new fabric (for the store). I love this fabric! It's Michael Miller and it's called something like "first sight".

Here's that sandwich I blogged about a while ago. I made the lunch sack and chips plus a donut to go with it. It's for a friends little girl who's birthday was a week or so ago. I'm late...In my defense I messed up on the bag. "Katie" was supposed to be embroidered on the bag not on a piece of felt then sewed on to the bag. I had cut out the bag, embroidered it then sewed the seams and realized I had cut the bag too small (actually I embroidered her name to big!). SO instead of throwing the whole thing out I just cut her name off the too small one and sewed it on a bigger one. Not my 1st choice but I wasn't going to throw away the whole thing! I did her name because my dad used to pack our lunches and he'd draw on the bags.

Who asked me if Emily ever wears tutu's? Corinnea? Well anyway, I said she wears all her tutu's and princess clothes at once for about 5 minutes then takes them of and won't touch them for another month or so. That's how she rolls....

*this photo with Ava peeking out reminds me of those photos that you take at a bar (for example) and when you develop them there's a guy in the back ground making a face or something worse like his pants are down. I think there's a page dedicated to this type of thing in Maxim magazine or one of those men's magazines.

I am doing stuff..I swear

I haven't scrap booked (is that a word?) in I don't know how long! But we got in new papers and I'm feeling inspired. This paper pack is by Three Bugs in a Rug. I've been sewing this and that but nothing to show just yet (no exciting projects, just finishing stuff).

And here is Ava wearing a very special present from Mary A.
She got this onesie in Strasbourg (she just hopped over to France for the day. Gotta love living in Europe!) Mary knows I love Petit Bateau and Mushrooms:) It was a 2 pack and the other one has little mushrooms and wording all over it. Thanks Mary!

For my coworkers this is redundant, but for those of you who I don't work with, we have a new addition to the store! It's a coffee/crafting/print photos/just hang out bar. This is right when you walk in the door and it's even better in person. I can't believe it's all made from scratch. We're still decorating so we'll soon have stuff above the bar on the wall. I can't believe how far we have come (see photos here from the old location and this location but before the bar!)

A sandwich and a monster

A felt sandwich made from this pattern. It consists of bologna, cheese, lettuce, tomato and pickles (pretty disgusting if you ask me!). This is part of a birthday present for a little girl who is newly friends with Emily.

An unfinished monster for Emily. It was supposed to be another gift for someone but I changed my mind. It's made from fleece and the pattern is McCall's 5826.

Easy bunny slippers

A gift for Adrienne.
Made from this pattern, fleece (minky or regular cotton would work too) lined in a white with pink polka dots cotton and anti-skid bottoms (Jiffy Grip Fabric). The pattern is for just plain booties so I added ears and embroidered a face because everything is cuter with ears!

Of course had to try them on Ava:) They are a little too snug for her so if you make them and the child's foot is approximately 4.5" long then make them a little bigger.

I'll be making her a pair out of white fleece.

Hooray a Beret!

Corinnea made Emily this beautiful beret! It's even more gorgeous in person and I'm sure if you ask her she'll tell you what yarn and pattern she used.
Thanks Corinnea:) We love it!

Simple Servant Frock

The Simple Servant Frock from Sugar City.
Here's Emily modeling it:)
I shortened it to be a shirt and added elastic to the sleeves.
This is a size 2t even though Emily is almost 4!!
The fabric is Recess by American Jane for Moda.
I also got the Village Frock by the same people and can't wait to make it.

Here's 2 pictures of Jon and the girls from today. It was soooo nice outside..for once.
