Ruffled Tote

I've been wanting to sew lately. :) When I saw this ruffled tote over on Ashley's blog I knew I had to make one for my little girl. She Loves bags and needed one just her size to bring to church.

I had some leftover fabric from a different project and used an old purple shirt for the ruffles. I wish it was more ruffly though.
For the inside I had some purple duck cloth I collected years ago.

 This was a really simple sew and my daughter loves it. At church her bag was overflowing though. I guess we need to work on how many things a girl needs for just a few hours. :)
If you want to make one too head on over for the full instructions here. I'm also wanting to try to make a little boy bag like here

Easy Barbecued Pork Pizza

The other night I made this pizza and had to share the recipe. It was delicious and really easy to make. It tasted just like one from a pizza store and only took about 25 minutes.

Easy Barbecued Pork Pizza
1 17-18 oz tub barbecue shredded pork ( I used Lloyd's)
1 medium red or yellow sweet pepper cut into strips
1 medium onion, cut into thin wedges
1 T vegetable oil
Pizza crust ( I used ready made dough)
1 C Monterey Jack Cheese

Step One: Preheat oven to 425. Heat shredded pork according to package directions. Meanwhile in a large skillet cook sweet pepper and onion in hot oil over medium high heat about 5 minutes or until crisp and tender.
Step Two: Place pizza crust on baking sheet. Spoon shredded pork over crust. Spreading evenly. Top with sweet pepper and onion mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake about 12 minutes or until cheese melts and crust edge turns light brown. 
(Recipe from Better Homes and Garden cookbook)

The Shirt Dress

This week I've been participating with Elsie Marley's Kids Clothes week challenge. It's been great motivation to get some dresses made for my little girl. 
Ever since Dana posted about her shirt dresses I've been wanting to make some. While at the thrift store this past week I found the perfect mens shirt for only $5. I wish I would have taken a before picture but I was too excited to start. :)

The Shirt Dress

 I LOVE it! I decided to use the cuffs from the shirt as shown here. She doesn't have a tutorial for this kind of sleeve but it was pretty easy to figure out. 
 For the waist I used this fun yellow fabric from my mom's stash. :) 
I love the blue and white with a pop of yellow. 
One thing I did a little different was sew along the other side of the buttons. I didn't want to have the sides open while my daughter was playing. 
My husband gave me a bunch of his dress shirts this morning to repurpose. :) You might be seeing more of these in the future. ;)
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Playdate Frock

I found the new One Yard Wonders at my local library.  I might like this book better than the first. It has different fabric categories and various patterns in each section :)
I loved the dress pattern, "The Playdate Frock."

 It fits my daughter perfectly! I am really pleased with how it turned out.
My only issue was the sleeves. It was really hard to figure out. But thanks to my Mom's help I finally mastered those tricky sleeves. :)

It also has two small pockets on the front. My daughter suggested adding some buttons to the front. I think I"ll do just that. :)

Queen Bee Market Update

Were you there at the Snap Conference this weekend? Or did you come to the Market? If you remember last week I told you my husband was a vendor. It was such a crazy week trying to get things ready and help out with the display.

Overall it was so much fun! It was such a great opportunity for my husbands shop. It was so great to be among so many inspiring women. I saw a lot of ladies from blogs I follow but was too shy to go up and talk to them. I wish I would have. Maybe we will cross paths again someday?

 It was fun to see other booths displays.

 This one was our favorite. I loved how the attached all those old crates together. I also loved the little boy ties. 
 This booth has so many fun vintage decor items. 

 I loved Salty Bison's wood pallet art. 

 On Friday night the market was Insane! There were all the women from the conference itself and other locals came to check it out. 
Overall a fun experience and a great weekend.

Simple Spring Mantel

My mantel needed some updating since Easter is now over. I decided to go really simple and have lots of color. I really Love it!

My new obsession is banners. :) I went through some of my fabric scraps and picked out some favorites. Then I cut them all the same size and sewed them together. Super easy! A great way to add color and patterns.

I also used some of my husbands vintage books. The Star Raker and Duden. :) I added a blue birdhouse I found while thrifting. 
This canvas has been sitting empty since Valentines. My Mom printed off the Home sign for me. I decided to just tape it on top of the canvas. I love how the blue ties in with the canvas. 

I kept my book decor up as well. I also put up my metal bird I got a few years ago. 
Theres my fun, colorful and super simple mantle. It makes me smile :)

Just another quick announcement. Have you heard of the Snap Conference going on this weekend? They are also having a Queen Bee Market at Thanksgiving Point in Utah. My husband is one of the vendors. :) There are some amazing vendors and the best part is it's FREE to the public. If your in Utah make sure to stop by and say "Hi." Here's the link to all the vendors that will be there and here's a link to my husbands shop, Sweet Old Stuff
