#GettingCrafty making #BarefootBabySandals

My daughter is pregnant, due November 17, 2013. It's a girl!  I am so excited to become a Grandma.
My daughter seen thee most adorable barefoot baby sandals online.
So, I decided to get crafty and make some!
I whipped out some supplies that I had on hand for bow-making and headbands. So while I was at it, I decided to make a matching set. Using fold over elastic (FOE), I made a figure 8 shape using approximately 10 inches. I glued it in place with some Fabric Tac, covered the glued area with a circle of felt and embellished the top part. Easy peasy!
I've decided to make some extras to sell as well! My grand-daughter is going to be so spoiled!
She'll be looking real cute with all the things I am going to make her!

I love when I receive a custom order! Recently, I was contacted to create a custom "MR & MRS" wedding banner. A customer from A Little Known Shop seen my work and requested that I make her one for her upcoming wedding. She also wanted a banner for her sweets table.
I was super excited to create something for her special day! The color of her wedding is sunshine yellow. She shared some pictures of her bouquet and her wedding dress. With that inspiration, I created the banners.
First I painted the burlap and canvas with sunshine yellow paint. Then I embellished with vintage lace, organza, satin ribbon, vintage floral buttons and of course some bling! I used my cricut to cut the letters out of silver glitter paper.
