Purplicious Birthday Balloon Wreath…

I had a custom order from my Etsy shop to create a purple balloon wreath for a special Purplicious Birthday Party!!
I used 12 inch balloons that were plain purple mixed with purple and white polka dot.  I added white and purple corkscrew pipe cleaners to finish it up—and I love the way it turned out!!  I am a bit partial since purple is my favorite color too!

Avenger Neckties for Boys and Toddlers and Boys Sewing Classes…

Just finished making these ties for Justin and my Little Man—they are really easy to make!!  I followed, mostly, the tutorial from here.
I had a request from a friend to start teaching sewing classes for boys.  We had our first class already and I LOVED IT!!
I can’t believe it was just a year ago that I happened upon bartering sewing lessons for eggs from a friend—I have had so much fun teaching and watching kids feel the joy of creating something on their own!!
My tie class is this Saturday, March 15th, 2014 from 2:30-4:30pm, for $15
Supplies needed:
  • A good pair of sewing scissors
  • 1/2 yard 100% cotton fabric
  • 1 package of 1/2 inch elastic
