The Tooth Fairy Pillow

My baby girl tapped me on the leg "Momma! I have a looth tuufff!"  she said as she had her hand in her mouth wiggling a bottom incisor. My first thought was...
 "I need to make you a tooth pillow!"

I had a tooth pillow as a child, and I remembered it being a fun experience. When I was five, I really believed I saw the tooth fairy leave my room with sparkles trailing behind her.

Good timing too, because two days later she had 2 more loose teeth! Apples are going to be a problem for a while.

I have had this vest for quite a long time. I never wear it. 
This will do just fine to make
 a wonderful and shiny tooth pillow.
Nice vest. Better tooth pillow.

I took my pinking roller to it, and cut out the side with the zipper pocket. 
But, I realized I didn't get close enough to the front zipper to create a big enough pocket.
 Good thing there was another side.

After that small mishap I turned the rectangle inside out, and sewed up 3 of the 4 sides.

The vest had batting already on the inside, so stuffing it was not necessary. SCORE!!

I flipped the new tooth pillow right side out.
Look it has a built in zipper! Yay! 

I hand stitched the open side closed with an invisible zig zag stitch.

It's not perfect, but I think the tooth fairy will love it!!!

See you next time!

Quite Possibly My Greatest Challenge!

This beautiful princess dress from the 80's goes well with my messy kitchen. I bought it for $6.00 at my local thrift store. It is more than I usually spend on something I didn't quite know what to do with, but I bought it anyway.
Bows, lace and blue satin! YES!

I picked apart the entire dress to see if it would inspire me.
That's a whole lotta fabric!

The sleeves themselves could have been another dress! OY!

I have a raglan sleeve t-shirt pattern that inspired me.

With all that sleeve fabric, it wasn't long enough, so I had to add some to the bottom.

I've also had this lion fabric for a while waiting for the perfect project, and this was it! Can you tell what I'm using it for?

Pin, sew, repeat.

I attached a zipper, some navy knit fabric for the collar, cuffs and hem band. 
I MADE A BOMBER JACKET Y'ALL! This is quite possibly my greate

New Makes In the Past Few Months

I haven't stopped making things these last few months. I've just slacked on the blogging. I will show you all the things I've made, and do a quick wrap up of all the stuffs! It's like crafting Cliffs Notes. HA!

I made this vest with some vintage wool from Paris I scored at an estate sale.  (There was a tag that said Paris, France) Easy sew, but time consuming fringe around the edges. That has to be done by hand.  Super cute, and I'll probably make another vest in a different fabric.

My daughter and I made some "Forever Cacti" with felt, rocks, paint, and some creativity. Fun afternoon!

My daughter's classroom Valentines were fun to do! A photo, a hole punch, and some suckers!

I made some killer pants with some fabric at that same estate sale. I used the Paperboy Pants Pattern by Wardrobe by Me. 

I spiffed up our bathroom with s…

Velour Housedress Refash

The house-dress of all house-dresses! Velour, long, comfy, all the things right?!
It is a fantastic thrift store find, but I'm not quite ready to be catapulted into my 80's lounging in a velour housedress....well maybe I am. BUT NOT TODAY!

This pretty royal house-dress is getting a great big snip right at the bottom!

I made a pattern that was 14"x 18".  Then I rounded the corners to create the shape I wanted.

I picked off that ruffle collar, and picked out the zipper.

I had this really cool boat fabric I picked up last summer at an estate sale. I'm turning the bottom of this house-dress into a soft and fuzzy backpack!

 cut out: 2 Velour, 2 Lining, 2 Interfacing
Interfacing ironed to the wrong side of the lining.

Bottom pieces. Velour, lining, and interfacing

My wonderful Aunt Esther gave me some suede a while back, and I thought now is as perfect a time as any to use it! I cut 2 strips 22 inches long, and tapered at the bottom.

I also bought parachute clips and …
