Needle and Thread Tattoo

I got my very first tattoo about a month ago! The needle and thread is on my left inner arm. Being a seamstress this really just 'fits' me. I have been wanting a tattoo for years and when my husband got home from his deployment he went with me to get it. I have plans for more tattoos but not until I hit a few weightloss goals.

Sorry for all the short posts lately. My time is limited but I still want to share things on my blog. Sometimes it's hard to keep up with everything!

Custom Order: Minnie Mouse Dress

I made this cute Minnie Mouse dress for my niece's 1st birthday party. It turned out so cute and I can't wait to see it on her! The shoulders have resin snaps and it has a cute ruffle along the bottom edge. This makes me wish I had a little girl to sew for. :)

Mesh Top

It's been a long time since I worked on a project for myself! Last weekend I was able to carve out some time to work on this shirt. The fabric is a mesh material which was a bit of a challenge to work with. I think it turned out great! It looks great over a black cami and a big chunky necklace. I don't usually have anyone to take my photos so the best I can do are ones on my dress-form.

DIY: In the Home: Homemade Febreze

Buying fabric freshener all the time can get pretty expensive, not to mention exposing you and your family to all the unnecessary chemicals. So why not make your own? 
You will need:
  • an empty spray bottle
  • 1/2 cup of Everclear, vodka, rubbing alcohol or witch hazel
  • 4-6 drops essential oil (approx. 1/2 tsp)
  • Water

Add the 1/2 cup of Everclear, vodka, rubbing alcohol or witch hazel to your spray bottle. Add 1/2 teaspoon essential oil of choice (or a mixture of oils). Fill the remainder of the bottle with water. Shake and spray!! *If you choose to use rubbing alcohol, remember that it will leave a scent behind for a few minutes before dissipating. Do not use this spray around open flames.
Suggested Essential Oils:
Lavender – stress reduction
Cedar – a gentile woody smell to freshen up your closet and drawers and dissuade moths from making their homes in your wool sweaters. Ceder is also great for pet beds because fleas can’t stand the smell!
Mulberry – great around the holidays
Vanilla – great base scent if you plan to add another note.

WIP: Circle Fan Quilt

WIP aka Work In Progress... I have several of those! I tend to get bored with a project and start something else, then the old project gets put on the back burner. I've been working on this WIP for ever, or at least it seems like that! I started it last year some time. I think. Anyways, I completed another block. Go me! :) 7 more to go....

It will be done, eventually. I can't wait!
