New Projects....

So, now that I have my blog up and (sort of) running, I can show you some projects I will be working on!!!

First: I got a messenger bag kit for my birthday one year, the kind that comes with a bunch of iron-on transfers. Let's just say I didn't do such a great job at decorating it. Anyway I decided that it's a good bag and it deserves to be used, because messenger bags are extremely handy. Soooo here comes...... Extreme Makeover Messenger Bag edition! Sadly I forgot to take "before" pictures, but since I'm not finished decorating it, I can most definitely give in between pictures :) Here it is!

Pretty cute, isn't it? Well I wasn't like that before. Because it was a gift from wal-mart (I do NOT have a high opinion of Wal-Mart), the strap, on BOTH sides, was completely twisted up. So I had to cut the strap twice and re-sew it the correct way. Way to go, Wal- Mart. After I did that I used some of the extra fabric left over from a dress made for Kyra (not made by me.... I'm not that skilled at sewing!) and I covered the ugly, iron-on transfers!!! I am planning on sewing crocheted flowers on it, but I'm not sure what color they should be.... please comment and leave suggestions :)

And now for my next project! This one I haven't started yet, so you actually get to see "before" pictures! Yay! This is my project.........

It's an ugly cardigan, isn't it? Why yes it is! But not for long!!!!!! I am going to do THIS to it:

I am going to cover the ugly, white, boring cardigan and make it an adorable, flower covered cute cardigan!!! I'm extremely excited. I hope it turns out okay.

I'm so happy I have a blog to share all of my creations with other people! It makes it all the more fun, and also motivates me to get my projects done! Hahaha!




  1. The crocheted flowers will 'adorn' the ugly, white, boring cardigan in a way that will bring it to life...I just know it...because I know you! As to the bag...notice the color of the flowers on the magazine. The blouse is a blue and those colors would look great on the bag, too. So proud of your proud of you.

  2. I was concerned that you may never blog a second one! So glad to see this up and now I am very interested to see what happens with the two projects.

  3. Hehehe, I was concerned myself that I wasn't going to do a second post, I never got around to it. I won't be able to work on my projects for a while since I'm going to a summer camp on Sunday, but when I get back I'm going to work extremely hard on it. In fact, me next blog post will probably be about camp, since I am planning on taking many pictures :) Thanks so much Beebs for the flower ideas! I can't wait to get started on my projects.
