Dress Form Bow Holders

Can you believe how cute these turned out? Many hours of intense labor have gone into this creation. Ta dah... my new bow holders! They are made to hold hair bows, headbands, and even little hair clips. Just like any other fabulous lady--multi-talented! This idea all started with a cute bow holder I saw at Hobby Lobby. It was a dress form made out of wood, painted, and then had tulle/ribbon stapled to the bottom. Clearly I am no artist and knew I couldn't paint wood to look posh, but baby I can sew! Several attempts later here we are. My girls were crazy for them. There is one in each of their rooms already (and they actually hang from a decorative hook). These princesses are mounted on a stand. Completely ready to adorn a lovely dresser or bathroom counter. I {heart} them - giggle, giggle! I also {heart} my incredible family - big smile! BTY, I have successfully completed three random acts of kindness today. Have you topped me???? I hope so...

Mallory's Stroller Bag

Okay, I said yesterday couldn't get any better, but it did. I took a Lush bath today. This actually qualifies for a shoulder scrunch giggle! I'm totally giddy. So, here's the latest creation. I have truly been sewing tons of things lately, but just not taking the time to take photos before I send them off. I'm kicking myself right now. I really wanted to be committed to blogging at least twice a week, but it's just not happening. Next week it won't happen either but for good reason. I leave in the morning for the beach. Beach and babes (the small children type; not buff, hot men). Total bliss!! This, I suppose, is supposed to be some fireworks for you and more to come after I get home. My first reveal of the stroller bag. Many of these have I made, but this will be the first documentation. It's sized perfectly to hold a small case of diaper wipes & diapers, plus any other small essentials. There's a small hook/link at the top to hook onto a stroller. I really feel super smart for my creation, but I know other people have made something like this. I want to be humble, but I at this moment I will confess... So many people have LOVED this type of bag that I've given them. It's a winner. So go on and tell my little bag that she's fabu! I hugged on her and kissed her before releasing her to a beautiful customer. Surely she will go on to a divine home. Oh, and just for you nosey little ones out there--yes, this design came from Embroitique. The designs are to die for! Seize life. Live it to the fullest.

P.S. Do you like my model?! That would be the sweet little PomPom. She's the baby kitty at our house that I love endlessly. I sooo promised that I would blog about my Devons one day & I haven't forgotten. This is still in the works.
