Last year I made a lamp hat for a cousin’s newborn baby girl. Time flies and the baby girl has turned 1 year old. I was thinking of making something for her and came across this cute pattern – Double Strapped Baby Mary Janes, which will be perfect for the little one who just started walking. And I used the buttons that I bought online a while ago and this is how they look like:
This is a custom order that I did within 2 days – received order on Monday, shipped out on Tuesday, arrived at customer’s house on Friday, gifted on Saturday at a wedding. Hope you will like the couple too.
My daughter just turned 8 and I wanted to do something special but small for her. She invited two best friends from her class for a (birthday) play date, and I did their nails using the Jamberry nail wraps that I bought from my friend. I like them because they don’t chip like nail polish. It’s a little bit pricey but I think it’s worthy.
So I decided to make 3 BFF charms for the 3 of them as part of the party favor. I saw this bear pattern from All About Ami for a while, and finally decided to give it a try. I put my daughter’s charm together with her present (when she was sleeping).
This is how they turn out (I wrote the 3 girls’ initial on the tummy to make each one unique):
My 5-year old boy decided to be a magician for Halloween this year, so I was searching for some DIY ideas online. I found a tutorial from A Craft a Day to make the cape, which is awesome! Since I am a sewing novice, I had to seek help from my mother-in-law though. 🙂 She did the collar a bit different from the instruction, and it looks out very well.
Instead of sewing the hat, I crocheted one using the Halloween Top Hat pattern I found from Red Heart.
For the trick-or-treat bag, he’s using the crochet pumpkin bag for the first time that I made right after last year’s Halloween.
Then my 8-year girl last minute decided she doesn’t want to be Princess Anna (from Frozen) any more. Instead, she would like to be a witch. Fine, her supermom then had to search all over again for witch costume ideas. Then I found one on Pinterest – DIY No Sew Ribbon Tie Tutu. Perfect! Then I went to Michael’s to get the 4 different colors of Tulle to make the Tutu.
As for the hat, I found a post called How to crochet a witch hat for Halloween and used the same yarn that I used for the boy’s magician hat.
Last but not least, we got her a broom from the dollar store, and she’s using the same zombie bag I made for her a few years ago. Hwww, mission accomplished!
And here’s their final look 🙂
