Ruffle me crazy!

So I got my book, and boy am I excited...and also terrified! I've never worked with such precise patterns and some fabrics I've never even heard of. So, I put it aside for now- we don't try things until the new year, right??
For Christmas I wanted to make a gift for a friend when I realized that i don't know how to make anything for a grown-up! I always make things for said grown-ups child! So after finding a few tutorials online, some trial and error...the ruffle necklace was born...



Very easy I know...but cute none the less.


These are all pretty simple, I don't have too many accesories to add to them, plus-im not that creative!


So I was feelin' the necklace vibe but wanted something more intricate than a ruffle. So here's a frayed rosette number.



When it's on it doesn't lay quit as flat as I would like it to, but- eh- not that bad for my first one.
and the best part was it cost me NADA...I used scraps. heres a close up



No sewing involved! Just some hot glue and fabric! The blue is a scraped sleeve off of this little number I made for miss Maddox.




This was the first jumper I've made with such bold pockets...it really enjoyed making it!


HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A PLEASANT NEW YEAR!!

I am so proud of you and very impressed! I want one of those flower necklaces for me. Will you make me one with black and gray? I have clothes for Saylee that we can trade?

Happy New Year....and I need to come see that baby!
