Arm and Baby Leg Warmers!

From these...To these CuTe arm warmers...or...

these cute baby leg warmers!!

These are a TON of FuN to make. I came across this C*U*T*E idea
from Cally @ Calico! where she has a ToN of FuN ideas and tutorials.

I just bought my long Halloween socks at JoAnns (which they are probably on sale right now)...and I also bought some ReaLLy Cute everyday striped socks @ Target.

On my older daughters arm warmers...I made them a little differently. I cut out the part of the sock in between the toe and heel...and sewed a straight stitch to connect that part with the rest of the sock...which made them a little longer. Then I zig-zagged the bottom to give it that cute curl.

Check out Cally's awesome tutorial to see how she made hers HERE.

Also...check out another fun tutorial from Erika @ Little Miss Crafty Pants...which hers turned out adorable too. I L*O*V*E her blog! She also has a ton of awesome ideas too!

Oh yeah...and by the way...A SPECIAL THANKS TO: MARISSA @ RAE GUN RAMBLINGS for the AWESOME Halloween Skirt Giveaway...that I WON!!*** YEAH!!!**** My daughter LoVes to wear it...and she looks so Stinkin' CuTe in it! See pic above !!! Thanks so much!!

Have FuN!!

Halloween Fabric Hair Flowers!!

I have to admit...I am addicted to making fabric flowers! They are sooo much CuTe...and EaSy! I have seen them floating around online for sometime now...and thought they are just so I decided to make some Halloween ones for my girls! My oldest daughter even loved helping make them.'s what I did:
I cut a 4" circle...3 1/2" circle...3" circle...and a 2 1/2" circle out of fabric... Then frayed the heck out of the edges with my fingernails. Then I stacked the fabric on-top of each other and sprayed the fabric with{ fabric starch}...then placed on cookie sheet and put in oven...under WARM heat until fabric dries.(only a couple of min.) {this will help keep its shape and help the edges to curl a little} Then I cut one 4" circle of tulle and added it to my 4 circles of fabric. I put my tulle in between the 2nd and 3rd layer of fabric. You don't have to add tulle...but I think it adds a little cuteness. :) Then sew the layers together. For the center...I just Mod Podged some fabric on the bottom of one of those glass rocks...and hot glued it to the middle. On the back...I hot glued a clippie and a piece of felt to the bottom... and there ya go!!! Super EaSy and Super CuTe!!
I made smaller ones for my little girl the same way...but I started my circles smaller and I used the smaller glass beads.
My daughter wears these hooked to her headband{ with the clippie}...and sitting a little crooked on her head. It looks sooo StinKin' CuTe!!
Wouldn't these make great presents...or...stocking stuffers????!!!!
HaVe FuN!!
