*** SEW EASY ***

WOW....I never thought I would use the words easy and sew in the same sentence! BUT, it really was! Avery picked this out while shopping for fabric. She insisted that I get this for her b/c she loooooved it. It already had the tubing part done at the top...sorry, I don't know all the "technical" words yet ;~)
Anyway, all you had to do basically was sew straight down the side and...walla...its done. Although, I did add straps with the left over fabric. Just felt it needed to be held up with little ones. Next time I will add straps that tie (suggested by my friend Janna) b/c I made them a little too long and far apart. You see...I am the type that Does not like to my cooking, scrapbooking, sewing, ect....
So, ties would be an easy alternative of not having to measure...and really cute too!!

Well, that is all...just wanted to share. Oh, btw..I made this the morning b/f Avery went to school...that's how fast and easy it was.
Hope everyone has a beautiful weekend!!

Going to Church......

Going to church as a child is a very fond memory of mine. Church has always been apart of my life...I'm not saying that I was always there, but I have been there enough for it to make an impact on my life.

Today, church for me is different from the church growing up. The music, the people, the sermons, the atmosphere. It is not like it used to be....for me. Don't get me wrong, I made the change. However, I can't forget where I came to speak.

This song reminds me of those childhood days of going to church with my Grandma...I love it so much AND it dosen't hurt that Allison Krauss and Gillian Welch are singing it.

You can listen to it HERE

Not too shabby...

i made another one....i like the shabby look to this fabric.... And it is reversible with a coordinating stripe fabric that i cut out a pocket for with the other fabric.
i have to say....this sewing thing is a little addicting. i have been studying Avery's clothes trying to see if i could make it. hee!
i also had to make a matching hair clip to go with it......

Hope everyone has a beautiful and blessed weekend!!
