yoga for frankie

last week was really crazy for me and i missed out on the kcwc (kids clothes week challenge).  my friend jen (bits of envy) really went to town and made her daughter, violet, a lovely new fall wardrobe.  i decided that i could jump on board a week late!  i found some really fabulous pdf patterns on etsy by heidi & finn.  i started with the yoga pants / hooded jacket.  i had found a patty young polka dot remnant (flora & fauna) for $3 last year and i combined it with another patty young knit (sanctuary) i scored for 50% off at fabric depot. here is everything all cut out.

here is frankie in her new yoga outfit.

trying out a few poses…

also works great for the playground!

fall is here

i’ve been a bit down lately and it was wonderful to see a post by my dear friend jen (check out her amazing & effortless creativity at bits of envy) that completely inspired me to stop being sad & embrace fall!  first, i made leaves out of brown paper bags & different lace.  i glued the lace to the bags and then used a template to cut them out.

i used three different styles & colors of lace.  i really like the combinations of textures.

next, i made flowers out of burlap, fabric scraps, vintage buttons & broken vintage earrings…and glued it all together.

here it is, hanging on the front door.

then i decided to make a table runner out of the remaining burlap.  i used the rest of the lace leaves and vintage mason jars.  the lids made perfect candle holders.  now i am off to help a friend paint & hopefully find the perfect branches to put in the jars!  thank you jen!
