Turning Three & Spring Bling

I'm hijacking our blog.
(Shh . . .  don't tell Eva.)

As some of you may know, my little girl turned three on Thursday.

I view so many sewing blogs on a daily basis, so I was inspired to sew a lot of her gifts.

Now that she has seen them, I'd like to share them with you with a little help from her as my model.
(Sorry if you have already seen the pictures on Facebook.)

Butterfly Theme Party = Butterfly Cupcakes
(Yes, I made the cupcakes.)

Her big, brown eyes get me every time.
(And her.  Made her too.)

Beautiful bracelets she can put on all by herself.
These bracelets were sew simple.
I cut the cuffs out of felt with pinking shears and added some sticky Velcro for closure.

I cut the green flower parts out with a Cricut and then sewed on the button.

For the multicolored flower, I cut a strip of fabric and hand sewed a stitch along the bottom.  Then I gathered the fabric into a flower, made some stitches to hold it together and sewed on the button.

Final touch: added a circular piece of felt to the back of each flower and then hot glued them to the felt.

This next one is my favorite flower.
I have a tutorial in the works for this one, which I happened to make by remembering someone else's tutorial incorrectly.  You've got to love it when something works out by doing it wrong!

I hand cut these flowers because the first batch of wool I bought will not work in a Cricut.

This flower was made the same as the one on the bracelet above and then I attached it to a fabric beaded bracelet.
I made this bracelet in five minutes.  Let's just say, it's not my favorite.
But the tutorial I made it from is wonderful.  I can't tell you about it just yet because it's being featured this week.

And my ruffled hobo sack, which I made using Made's fabulous tutorial.
This is my favorite of all the things.
(If you have any questions about anything I made, please email me.  This was a quick post.)
Now it is time to sew Mother's Day gifts!

But don't forget. . .  This week is . . .
Spring Bling!

Lot's of goodies to spoil yourself or your mom!
