Clothespin Cake Topper

After seeing some clothespin cake toppers online (at homemade by Jill here and lollipop workshop here) I had to have one for D's birthday. My mom did all the hard work- painting the face, making hair out of embroidery floss and creating the arms. I basically just dressed her. I think it looks just like D- before I cut her bangs, of course.

Felt Crown

I wish I could claim this handiwork as my own, but all the credit goes to my mom. This is the felt crown she made for D for her birthday. This is adorable!

Little Fleece Vest

Little vest I made for D to wear this fall. Unfortunately she hates it and has only put it on twice for about 2 minutes each time. Several times I've asked her to put it on and she just runs away screaming. Apparently we are not a vest family. I thought it would be a quick, easy, and cheap project. Cheap-yes (the fleece was super cheap at Wal-Mart). Quick & easy-not quite. Using a pattern would have helped a lot. Buying the right zipper would have helped, too. In the end I just finished it without a zipper or pockets. Probably not worth all the effort considering she does NOT want to wear it. Now I am looking for a project for the yard of pink fleece I have left.

Here she is posing for a catalog- hand in pockets. ANTM here we come!

Cord Skirt for Mom

These pants were too short, so I've been wanting to recycle them. I tried this skirt using the bottom of the legs as panels in the front and back. I think it turned out okay, but it still looks, well, recycled. Any thoughts?
