Reversible Hand Painted Vests

So my sister Jessica is Awesome and always calls me with exciting new ideas that she wants me to make for her! This was one of them! She wanted her 2 handsome boys to have vests for their family pictures, but didn't want just some dorky/unoriginal vests! She loves the ones that you buy for men than are painted and have some extra details on them, so she called me and asked me to do it! She sent me a link to this blog that has a Great Tutorial on how to make the reversible vests!

I had to rush them off to her for her family pictures, so I don't have any other great photos of the details of the painting, I will soon, but here is a SNEAK PEAK! :)


This is what the WINNER from my Giveaway at chose! They turned out super cute! I'll let you know about any other giveaways you can enter! :)

Upcycled Hat

I made this hat for my sweet little nephew Bekkett! I got the idea from I am Momma Hear Me Roar! I love her blog and check it daily! She has such great ideas for boys and my sister LOVES it, because I end up making lots of things for her boys, because I just have my one little girl! I am adding this to my Etsy Shop as well today, so if you would like one, you can get one there!

Fleur de Lis

I always love looking at adult clothing and making onesies and outfits that look more stylish than just the traditional baby stuff! That is what inspired these shirts! I saw the colored swirly pattern at HL and it was on SALE, which I am always a sucker for! I grabbed a few just to see how they worked...mind you that was probably 4 months ago. I tried it on a blue shirt and it didn't even show up and then when I went back and read the directions it said that it was best to use on light colored shirts! :) Reading the directions pays off sometimes! ;)

I also LOVE the image of the fleur de lis, so I did a stamp of it in black to get those layers! I love, love, love how its not a solid black image! I have a few more of the green, so look for them at my etsy shop!

I love that I posted a picture of this onesie on FB and I had 4 or 5 people comment that they would wear one of these in their size! It made me smile!

This one turned out a lot lighter than the green, but I still love how it turned out! This one was an order, so that is why the name Carpenter is on the back!

Thanks for stopping by! See you tomorrow!

Cowboy inspired Onesie!

I am a proud aunt of a new little guy name Jarom Boyd! My brother is 100% cowboy and I used him as my inspiration for this one! I thought that he would love a more western themed onesie! I made the vest so that it buttons up higher and kept it in a more western type colors, although....I would use these same colors for lots of things! I decided just to put cloth buttons on instead of adding real buttons and hand stitched an x in the center. This was such a fun onesie to make for my handsome little nephew!
