Fresh start

Around here after this CRAZY two weeks of total chaos, I am ready to begin the :normal world of crafting/cleaning/blogging/fund raising/ and doing some fun activities with my kiddos.
I figure what way to start off than to start with a new item. I introduce.....
           THE TUTU TOTE


The traditional tote bag, but with a cutsy tutu around the bottom quarter of the bag. I was inspired because I know a lot of little girls are doing summer ballet/dance/tap/ etc.and this would be the perfect accessory for those shoes.sweater, socks, etc.  Plus, what an easy way to make a donation. Speaking of donations, This month,  our area is hosting relay for life. Cancer (like Chairi) absolutely effects all the loved ones involved, so my plan is to raise funds to donate to that cause as well. Please help us reach our goal by purchasing this item on the etsy shop HERE. Thank you!

Cheap and crafty

I Have a two and a four year old, so they still require quite a few things for a day trip, so I always find myself grabbing a tote bag, filling it to the brim and running out of the house. When I cam eacross this old maternity shirt, I thought it would be cute with some plaid and a sturdy strap. So, I cut it off at the waist, fit it to the inside with pockets and exposed the top. throw on a sturdy handle and you have got yourself a new bag!


I took the buttons off the cuf of the sleeve and attached them for the closure

I put a couple extra decorative stitches  down the "front" of the shirt

and there you have it! Thank you for stopping by!!
