Valentine's Day Inspired Onsie

Valentine's is just days away but there's still time to make this sweet baby onsie!
All you need to make it is a plain onsie (I bought this one at Walmart for $3, I like the sweet ruffled sleeves), a yard of prepleaded ribbon (got mine from JoAnn's for $1.87), a pair of scissors, and a sewing machine.

Cut all the way down both sides of the onsie, remove salvage piece.

Lay ribbon across the back side and cut. Allow 1/4" to 1/2" extra ribbon to hang off each side. Repeat for two additional ribbon pieces. 

Zig zag stitch the ribbon in place.

Add second layer and repeat previous steps. Do the same for the third layer.

Pin sides back together and stitch. Repeat for additional side.

Don't forget the step where you teach all that you know to your little apprentice.

 To add the flower coil up the remaining ribbon piece into desired floral look. Pin in place.

Machine stitch.

All that's left is to find a sweet little girl to put it on!

High-Waisted Sash Skirt {Tutorial}

Ok so I'm officially on a skirt kick as this is my third one in 2 weeks. With spring in the air I just can't help but want to live in spring things! This diy skirt is similar to the other one I did but this one has a sash and is fuller...which I think is way fun! To purchase this exact fabric go to my etsy shop! If you're not up for making it you're in luck! I now sell it on my etsy shop too! You should also check it out on my friend over at Stylish Petite!

Sweet as a Berry Little Girl Dress {tutorial}

With Valentine's day lurking around the corner it's only natural for a blogger like myself to begin thinking of cute ways to incorporate the holiday. When I came across this strawberry fabric I fell in love with it's sweetness and decided that I would make my daughter a Valentine's day inspired dress. You may remember my Valentine's day inspired onesie from last year...Now if only my daughter would get up and walk in it instead of scoot around on her booty getting the beautiful fabric all dirty! Sigh...someday!
