I'll Be Back Soon!

Dear Followers,

I'm sorry that I haven't been the best blogger lately. My husband just got out of the military so everything is a little crazy until we find a place and get settled. But once everything goes back to normal and we get my crafting stuff out of a storage unit, its back to being creative again!! :)

Thanks everyone!

Old Rompers to New Shirts

We bought these rompers for my daughter and within weeks, she grew out of them.. She's very tall for her age. I didn't want to get rid of them because they were barely used so I just fixed them!
All I did was cut and hem. That's it! Now she has 2 new shirts. This is the kind of easy sewing projects that are good for a busy mom :)

Camera Strap Redo

I finally did it! I've been wanting to do this for a long time now & I finally did!

What I used:
-Spray adhesive
-Sewing machine

First thing I did was cut out a piece of fabric that was wide enough to wrap around the strap. Then I sprayed the strap with the Spray Adhesive and wrapped the fabric around it. I did this because it was really hard {impossible} to pin down the fabric to my strap.. So I did this to make sewing it on easier.
{Sorry no pictures for these next steps} Then I sewed down the ribbon and pulled the strings to create the ruffles, pinned {the best I could} it to the strap, and sewed down the middle.

Here is the back of the strap once it was done!
And the finished product! :)

Normal Jeans To Skinny Jeans

I found this tutorial on Freshly Picked and it inspired me to make my own! I found a pair of jeans that didn't mind making skinny and followed her instructions. Check out the results! It was super easy and fun!

Shutter Love

The type of photography that I love is super close ups.. I love focusing on one small thing and everything else in the photo is blurry. I have a D3ooo and I really want to buy a Macro Lens for it. Anyways, I'm no professional but photography is a passion of mine :)

Girl's Ruffle Top

OK, so I will not be giving a step-by-step on how I did this because I had to change my plan while working {this fabric is really hard to work with..} and I actually did a pretty sloppy job. But it's OK because it turned out all right and maybe if you do something similar, you'll be more organized then I was :) I used these 2 onesies and some hot pink scraps from another project.
I added the ruffles {this took forever and a day} ;)
Then finally after way too much time spent of this one project, it was DONE! :)
