Gifts Galore!!

I've been working hard on being such a slacker. I decided to sit down and  get done some of the projects I've been wanting to complete. I have lots of Birthdays coming up, and one I already missed. I really enjoy giving gifts, but sometimes (especially lately) I totally blow it off. So I decided to get my but in gear and just do it!
                                                                                      The outfit I made my niece
                                                     The hubs was not too excited about our little guy being my model

But just look at all the ruffly ruffles! I Love them, and want a pair for myself:) I think that may be my next project

Clutches using Noodleheads Gathered Clutch Tutorial. I fell in love with these when I first saw them. all of hers were so darned cute!!! And her tutorial was super easy to follow.
I just changed a few things. I learned after the first that you really need to make your front cut longer so it gathers more,and there is no need to buy (3) 1/4 yards of fabric. I did just fine with scraps I had laying around. And of course I can never leave anything as-is, so I added embellishments and a strap to one to make it a wristlet.
I think I will be making more soon.

This is my favorite one. Too bad they're all gifts:(

My second Fave, I love the little flowery band

And my least fave, I actually don't really like anything about this one.Other than the back.

This part is cute.

Happy Thursday! It's almost Friday.. YAY! That means only 2 weeks till we leave for my sisters wedding:)
What are your plans for the weekend?


  1. I love the last one with the white eyelet. I am a sucker for seems so elegant yet casual to me. Great job!

  2. OH WOW!! Such cute gifts. I love them all.
    ...and I've been guilty as using my son as a model, too, and my husband hates it. :)


Leave some Love
