Witch Shoe...

I saw these cute witch shoes on my friend Laura's blog. She is quite crafty herself, and has done some fun projects recently. She saw an idea on A Bushel and a Peck of Fun for incorporating this shoe with October's Visiting Teaching message. I liked the idea, and since I'm a slacker V.T. I chose to copy the idea. Here are the templates for the shoe and lining. Oh the possibilities with these shoes...I see princess shoes for a 2 year old princess party coming up real soon (that's if I get my act together!)
Shoe before
Shoe after...filled with Chocolate

Adorable Halloween Printables...

Just saw this on Craft Pad, and I love it!!! Go to babalisme to print yours out for free!*Sorry the picture cuts off.

Halloween Tutu

First off, sorry for the lack of posts. Being lazing + being out of a lot of things = no crafting for me. I hope to change that soon. In the mean time, I did finish Daylynn's honey bee tutu. My friend Rachel called and asked me to help her with a lady bug tutu. That, and a Winnie the Pooh book inspired me to make this tutu. I used just about 6 yards of tulle. I cut each strip 3 inches, and then cut each strip into thirds. Sorry for the poor pictures. The yellow is yellower than the pictures make it out to be.

Poppy Doll

My friend Lyric showed me this cute doll, and asked if I wanted to make one. Her's turned out so cute, and I couldn't wait to make one. I bought the pattern here, and finally got the motivation to make it yesterday. I was burnt out after making the doll, that I didn't get to the clothes yet. I used an unfinished shirred dress and sewed the two pieces together to make sleeves. Not the greatest, but it works. I also wish I had put darker hair on the doll, but I didn't have any. Daylynn already loves it, and has spent a lot of time holding, pushing her around and changing her diaper.
*Just a cute story. Before the doll had any clothes on, Daylynn kept saying, "dolly naked." She ran back to her room, and came back with one of her shirts for the doll. I just had to laugh! Daylynn is a month shy of being 2, and she cracks me up. I just love her!!
