Vintage Cherries {Flutterby Basket}

I have been up to all kinds of crafty goodness this last week! My two oldest kids needed an item to take to their youth camp fundraiser yesterday. Of course that means that I get to play! Ha ha! And to be honest, it didn't feel like work at all.




When I was at the fabric store the last few weeks picking fabric for my last few projects, I eyed this darling vintage cherry print fabric line. Swoon! I knew it had to be mine! I made two baskets to hold a set of handmade cards that I created especially to match the baskets. It was SO much fun! You can see my tutorial for the baskets HERE





You can see one of the cards peeking out of the basket here. I was so happy that I had a stamp set that matched the flowers on the fabric almost exactly. I love it when the crafting worlds collide and magic  happens!




I added a gold embossed "Uniquely handmade" stamped circle to finish it off. "Sew" much fun! I'm thinking of all kinds of fun ways to "gift" these darling ba…

The {Flutterby} Basket

I've been having so much fun making all kinds of Easter and Spring projects! I whipped up a whole bunch of carrot treat boxes that you can see HERE. After I was done, I really wanted some type of basket to put them in. My sweet friend made me a really cute fabric basket years ago. I had asked her if I could have the pattern and she told me she had gotten it off of Pinterest. I decided that it would just be easier to come up with something myself. There are many different versions of this type of fabric container, but this is my version. I have included a tutorial if you'd like to make one yourself. I'm calling it The {Flutterby} Basket.
I'm planning on giving these to friends and family  filled with all kinds of Easter goodies, including my carrot treat boxes {of course}.
I had so much fun putting them together and they are perfect to hold all kinds of things! 







My tree has blossomed and it was the perfect backdrop to photograph a few of the different fabric combinations.

A little bit country..{baby collection}

A friend of mine asked me if I had time to make her a baby boy set for an upcoming shower. I agreed and I had such a fun time putting this set together. I really enjoyed it because it wasn't a traditional baby boy set and it gave me some freedom to mix and match patterns in some different ways. When it was all said and done, it definitely had a "Scottish Highlands" kind of vibe to it, which I love...especially because of all of my Scottish heritage.


I love the way the black gingham complements the different plaids and deer fabric. I always like when I put together something that isn't at all what I "normally" would do. The pacifier clip boasts a darling little baby deer button that is SECURELY attached (I wouldn't want to risk a choking hazard) and adds just the right amount of country charm. I chose to make the bowtie and pacifier clip out of the gingham because I used it the least in the bib. I really like striking a balance with color, pattern and pri…

"A new little someone" gift collection

I realized that I shared this collection on Instagram and never added it to the blog! I created this gift collection in late December/early January for a dear friend who had her sweet baby boy! I had asked her the colors of the nursery for a jumping off point and I really like how everything came together. The collection includes: handmade felt baby booties, neck tie, bow tie, binky clip and rag quilt. 
Here is a closeup of the baby booties. I am so glad that I found a boy shoe that I like gifting as much as the girl shoes that I make. The recipients always seem so pleased with them. You can also see the rag quilt in the background of this photo. It has a trendy, rustic feel and the new mama told me it works perfectly in the nursery! I am so glad! The felt was all purchased at the local quilt shop and while I normally wouldn't have put this combination together, it really works!




Let's talk about the ties...one of my baby boy collection staples. They are so fun to make and easy t…
