The project I did for easter, spring flowers from tissue papers for backdrop. My friend found the idea in Pinterest, here is the link https://www.duitang.com/blog/?id=20891655.
The plan was I make the flowers and she makes the stem and leaves, then we will put them together. With one thing and another we changed the plan in the last minute, instead of having the flowers standing we will just attach them to the cardboard as cluster flowers then hang it to the wall.
So here is the final backdrop. We cut the excess cardboard and added the leaves(my daughter’s origami paper).
And here is my prettiest flower posing with the spring flowers backdrop.
Hope it inspires you!
Months before we moved in whenever I asked my little one what kind of bedroom she would like to have in our new place, her answer was Rapunzel room. I associated the room with purple color right away, the color theme of disney rapunzel. Well I was relieved she did not said pink or blue. I’m personally not a big fan of pink room and we had had blue room and I had enough of it. Purple sounds fun, soft, lavender, calm.. like it.
Then next question is what does Rapunzel room should have beside purple? Rapunzel picture? No.. the guy and the horse? of course no. I don’t want the room being overdecorated with Rapunzel knick knack that won’t last long. Something with purple and simple and clean and elegant and can be kept for years to come (probably until her middle). Then she said ” mama I want floating lights in my rapunzel room”. My first thought was oh no, I don’t wanna put lantern things on the ceiling. Hmm what about painting something on the wall that mimics the floating lights.
Do you think those gold circles close enough to floating lights ? 🙂
I used my husband’s shoe polish sponge (I don’t think he will realized it until he read this post) and leftover gold paint which I used in guest bedroom makeover in our old place. Unexpectedly the sponge leave the texture which I think make the gold stamps look unique and better.
And the best part is my daughter loves the room. Hope this inspire you!
Hi! been quite some time since my last post.
This is cake I made last week for someone’s 60th birthday. I wasn’t sure what would be the best color for 60th birthday, after mixing red, pink, orange, and blue finally I got this color and love it. These peonies were the biggest buttercream flower I’ve ever made, I was afraid they would not hold their shapes after transporting.. fortunately all come out great and the customer was happy with it.
Hope this inspires you!
This is the dress I made for my daughter’s 3rd birthday, the ladybug dress. Also made the ladybug cake for the birthday party, check it here: https://sweetsourmoments.com/2016/02/16/ladybug-birthday-cake/
Bought this ladybug fabric and buttons from Jo-ann almost a year ago, aren’t they cute?
Can’t believe she is three, how come?
I was very excited with this project and couldn’t wait to see them above the fireplace. The complete tutorial can be found here : http://blog.fabricworm.com/2010/12/christmas-stocking-tutorial.html
Initially I was planning to have them all in linen fabric but later I found out it’s only enough for 1 stocking. While digging my fabric stash, I saw this mocha color batik and decided to pair it with the linen.. so here they are!
I did snowflake beaded embroidery to add some sparkle on the linen fabric.
Also made mini wreaths.
My second felt project, Felt Donuts… they look pretty real to my little one she thought they are really for her afternoon snack 🙂
This is very fun project to make, you can personalized the frosting and sprinkles or toppings to whatever your imagination tells you.
The main material is brown felt for the donuts, as for the frosting I used whatever left over felt I had… you can also use scrap fabric.
Here is the tutorial, the pictures aren’t too good since I made them in the night.
- Prepare the felt for the donuts and frosting. For each donut you need 2 brown felt and 1 frosting. People usually use Disc as template, for this donut I cut it a litte bit smaller.
- Cut the outer edge of frosting felt to irregular shape, attach the sprinkle or toppings( buttons, felt pieces, beads) then sew the piece to the brown felt as pictured.
- Put another piece of brown felt on the top, sew the outer edge together.
- Flip inside out.
- Fill it with stuffings and hand sew close the inner edges.
