Doggie Jacket How-To

So I don't have a dog, but for those of you who do, this is darling way to break in the new fall season. You can find instructions here at ReadyMade.

I need a long horizontal painting for one of my bedroom walls. I think what I'm going to do is cover a frame with heavy white fabric and paint something like this on it (only horizontally). This inspiration rug is from CB2. And of course when it happens, I'll post it on my blog.

The Boutique

Here are some pics of Paula's and my table at the boutique. It was fun! I wish I'd gotten better pictures of the darling onsies, but you can check our Etsy site. They will be on there soon, I'm sure.

And some of the pouches I made too:

Cranberry Farms Boutique

I will be participating in the Cranberry Farms Boutique this weekend! Come and see! It is Saturday, Sept. 27th from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm. There will be all sorts of handmade crafts and items for sale, and raffle prizes as well. My friend and coworker Paula will also be participating and oh my goodness you should see the stuff she makes. Everything she touches turns to gold.

The Cranberry Farms Clubhouse is located behind Thanksgiving Point in Lehi. The address is 2451 W 2400 N, Lehi. To get there you can exit I-15 at the Alpine/Highland exit and head west until you cross over the RR tracks on a bridge, and come to a stop sign. Turn left and go (south) until you come to 2400N. Turn right and the clubhouse is there on your left, almost on the corner. Can't miss it. Pin It

Garden Party Purse

Here's the finished purse I showed a teaser for earlier in the week. Lined with a buttery yellow colored interior. I actually used a pattern for this one, though it was a pretty shoddy pattern. I'll be selling this one at the Cranberry Farms Boutique next weekend (more info on that to come).

Here you can see the side panel:
Here you can see the pleating in the front and back. Oh I should have probably taken a photo of the back, huh? Oh well.

Sneak Peak

Here's a sneak peak at what I'm up to. Sometimes I just fall in love with a fabric and I don't care what I make with it, as long as I get to buy the fabric. Fabric by Anna Maria Horner.

The Alexander Tote/Diaper Bag

So here is the finished product. This bag was a lot of work, but I think it turned out great. Anything with zippers just takes me longer for some reason, not to mention creating a new pattern.
So this bag features a split pocket on the outside front, and 2 end pockets on both ends. There is a large inside pocket with a velcro tab closure, and a zipper along the top to hide all that mess you've got inside. Made with chocolate brown polka-dot strap and red lining and sides and base. This is a very functional bag. I'll be selling this one at the Cranberry Farms Boutique in 2 weeks. If it doesn't sell there, I'll put it on Etsy.

Today's project

This is what I'm up to today. Finishing this bag. I started it with the idea of a diaper bag, but it could also be a tote or handbag. Idn't it cute?

Orange Dreamsicle Purse

I made another purse today. Eggshell white with orange stitching and orange interior. The interior fabric is by Anna Marie Horner. I wish the button was a tad brighter, but it's all they had in orange, and I love these giant buttons.

Table Cloth Skirt and Dinner Party Top GIVEAWAY !!!!!!!

Check out this adorable outfit giveaway on Grosgrain. I love it! I also love the chandelier, and though I consider myself somewhat handy, I couldn't quite follow how she made it. I don't have any electrical know-how. But I want one. :) Pin It

Pretty clipboard

I found an old clipboard and decided to pretty it up. I used some wrapping paper that was created and gifted to me by my talented friend and coworker, Suzanne. Unfortunately the paper was a little thin for the task, and tore a little in one spot along the edge, so I recommend using a heavy wrapping paper or even wallpaper. Scrapbook paper was a little to short to fit. I used mod podge to glue it all on. I intend to used it to hang my lists of projects I want to complete, and sketches of projects and other such things. You should try it. Easy, fun, cheap, and cute.
