I Heart Pinterest

Can I just say how much I LOVE Pinterest?! I'm sure by now you all have heard of it. I was a little hesitant to sign up at first, but I am so glad that I did! Instead of searching through my bookmarks folder trying to remember the name of the project I'm looking for, I simply find the picture. Plus, it helps me remember things I bookmarked forever ago that I had forgotten about. I love that I can create separate boards (folders, basically) to pin my items to. I also love that I can pick any of the images on the webpage to show up as my "pin". If you want to see what I've been pinning lately, you can find me here. If you need an invite, just leave me your email address and I'll send you one. Trust me, you won't regret it!
I found this cute toddler backpack on Pinterest today and I'm totally in the process of making it. It is from Chickpea Sewing Studio.

Madie has wanted a backpack with Tinkerbell on it since January, I think (yikes)! We are painting Tink on and once that is all dry I'll sew it up for my little munchkin. I'll post pics once it's finished.

Dress Up Veil

This was so easy to make! I took a piece of sparkly white sheer fabric (left over from this dress) and singed the edges so they wouldn't fray...you know, because I was too lazy to hem them all. Then I made a casing on one side and slid it onto a plastic headband. I put a dab of hot glue over the fabric on each side so that it would stay on the headband then I glued a little bow and jewel on top. 

Now my little princess can pretend to get married whenever she wants.
