The Long Awaited Moment!!!

I have pictures of most of my projects! :D With my brand new camera! It is SO nice! I have such a great husband. :) I had an amazing birthday, after breakfast and the scavenger hunt we went to Idaho Falls and went shopping! They must have known that it was my birthday because I got some AMAZING deals! Not even kidding, I got jeans that fit amazingly, a really cute dress, two lace tanks for 97 cents each! Those were the best, but I got so many others. All in all I spent $20 and I basically got a new wardrobe. Deals make me sooo happy. We also saw How to Train Your Dragon (which you HAVE to see, right now. Take the whole family and finish the blog post later. Go now!!!). And to wrap up the day, we had the most amazing dinner at a really nice steakhouse in Rigby. Awesome birthday. :)

And here are my projects!! I hope you enjoy looking at them. :) (Note: I try my best to give credit where credit is due. If I used someone else's idea and/or tutorial I link up to where I got it from. If there is none listed, it was my own idea.)

Stuffed Animals.

Bean bag ocean animals (from Crab Bags and Other Bean Beings by Margaret Pack)
Animals made out of gloves and wash mitts. (Dog from Martha Stewart and Hedgies from Darling Petunia)Pointy Kitty (from Wee Wonderfuls)
And this one is my favorite! (from Get Your Craft On)

These are the more "crafting" projects. Non sewing.

Our profiles from our wedding around a wedding picture (I got the idea off a site a loooong time ago and then just recently tried it myself. I can't remember where the original project came from, but I made it in my own way)I got these pearl letters from Michaels on clearance for 50 cents each! The frame I got for a dollar at DI and painted black.


Pencil Case. This was my very first zipper! (from Little Birdie Secrets)

This is actually a craft and an accessory. The cherry bag is the accessory (from Fireflies and Jellybeans), and it's hanging from a mail carrier thing I remade.

A purse made out of a placemat (from Little Birdie Secrets)


This is my first "refinishing" project. It's supposed to be a tuxedo shirt. (Based on this) I took an old red shirt and some red knit fabric and added the ruffles.

I made this one without a formal pattern (I used a dress I already had as a pattern) with some knit I got from DI. I'm not sure if I like it.

Baby things. (No, I'm not having a baby, the patterns were just easy and good for me to start with.)

Burp cloths (from homemade by jill)

Well, hope you enjoyed the pics! If you have any questions let me know. :) There are a few more that I have thought of since this post, but I'll save those for another post.
