{Leila the Pony, crochet stuffed animal}

This sweet little pony is a Christmas gift for my son.  He wanted a pony/horse and his favorite color is purple, so I definitely had to make his mane purple and part of his tail.
If you'd like to order a custom made pony with your choice of colors... Head over to my etsy shop and place a custom order request there.  Please note that I cannot guarantee that I can find exactly what you would like, but I will do my best.

{coin purses & a flea market}

I just finished these cute little coin purses a few days ago.  I found this fun vintage typewriter fabric at my favorite local fabric store, SAS.
The yellow typewriter above is the back of the top pink one and this photo on the right is the inside. There wasn't much of this fabric so I made a few pouches with it.
I'm getting ready for a big Flea Market at this end of this month that I will have a booth at, so I'm making lots and lots of fun gift items.   
This is the 2nd coin purse (above is the front & below is the back and inside) 
If you are in the Phoenix Metro area come find me at the Phoenix Flea Market on November 29th & 30th, from 10am - 6pm rain or shine!  It is located at the Historic Heritage Square
113 North 6th Street, Phoenix, AZ 85004

{happy halloween ~ costumes galore}

I did a little sewing for Halloween this year.  Above is my oldest daughter.  I made her shorts and her mask (she painted it and I sewed it) and she made her tutu and painted the spider on her shirt.
Above is the dress I made for my oldest daughter's best friend.  She was an ice princess.  I wish I could have gotten a picture of her all dressed up with her hair and make-up done and with her tiara on.  She looked really good.  This dress was very difficult to make.  I've made several formals now, but this one by far was the hardest.
  Minnie Mouse is my 2nd oldest daughter.  I made her dress and she made her ears.
These are my 3rd and 4th oldest girls.  On the left is my 15 year old, doing face painting at our church's trunk-or-treat last night.  I never got a good picture of her costume.  She made her tutu.  And my 13 year old daughter (on the right), she's the only one I didn't have to make anything for.  My 15 year old did the 13 year olds make-up.
My oldest son was a mummy.  My husband and I tore up an old sheet and another large piece of fabric that I had into strips and tied them together.  It literally took almost an hour to wrap him up.
And my youngest boy was a lumberjack.  My husband made his axe and the rest was all stuff we already had.  My 15 year old daughter did his make-up for his beard. This was a very simple costume. We had a lot of fun this year.   
I always love seeing the creative ideas my kids come up with.   Happy Belated Halloween!
