Easter Banner

Easter banner made by my mom.
It's so happy, bright and colorful! 
If I weren't trying to figure out an Easter dress for K* I might have made one for myself.

Emmeline Apron in Good Fortune

Emmeline apron from Sew Liberated in Kate Spain's dragonfly & sakura prints in harmony from her good fortune line with bella solids purple (9900-21).
The purple sakura print is probably one of my most favorite prints ever! I bought it last year knowing I was going to make myself an apron with it.  I just love it. I have some more, not sure what I'll make with it yet, perhaps a sewing machine cover?
Over the years, I have sewn Emmeline aprons as gifts for friends and my sweet K* always asks when I'm going to make one for myself.  Well, finally I did, just before my birthday at the beginning of February.

Photo Booth Props

Last week my friend came over and we cut out photo booth props for the upcoming Spring activity at the elementary school.  She took most of them home with her, but I snapped a shot of the few I finished up after she left.  She's going to laminate them and then attach them to sticks. We cut out hats, cowboy hats, lips, mustaches, crowns, glasses, bow ties, ties and thought bubbles {she's going to laminate those and then you can write on them with a dry erase marker}.

This blog post by kensi kate is where all of the fun & free prop images came from.  I traced them with my silhouette software and cut them out on card stock.
