Sew Cute Tuesday {1.31.12}

Welcome to Sew Cute Tuesday, a linky party for
SEWING PROJECTS ONLY!!

I hope you'll forgive me, but I'm unable to post any features this week.  My computer/internet is running very s-l-o-w for some reason, and it takes forever to do anything on here.  We were supposed to have someone come fix our internet yesterday, but I had to go to my clogging class, and don't know if they showed up or not.  Judging by the way my internet connection is acting, I'd say they didn't.  Hopefully we'll get it figured out soon!

In the meantime, let's get this linky party started!

My Spin on the Pin {1.27.12}

Santa thought I was a good girl and brought me a Sizzix Big Shot for Christmas.  I'm always looking for excuses to use it, and the perfect opportunity came when I saw and pinned this card.

Here's My Spin on the Pin...



This is another versatile card that I plan on using a lot!!

Now let's see YOUR spin on the pin!!  Link up any project you've made that was inspired by Pinterest!  The linky will remain open until Midnight on Wednesday February 1st.

Happy Pinning!

Snowman Clips

A few weeks ago, I shared these snowman clips.  I spotted one of my daughter's friends wearing a different kind, and decided to try and duplicate it.  Here's what I came up with...


I made them just like my penguin clips, but left off the arms and googly eyes, and added a hat.  I thought about adding googly eyes and an orange nose, but thought they looked fine without them.  These ones are a lot simpler to make than the others, and just as cute if you ask me!

Sew Cute Tuesday {1.24.12}

Happy Tuesday, and welcome to Sew Cute Tuesday...a linky party for SEWING PROJECTS ONLY!

My little sewing machine has been getting some use these last few weeks.  I can't wait to show you what I've been making, but you'll have to wait a little bit longer.  What about you?  What sewing projects have you been working on?  Do you have any fun tutorials on your blog?  I'm needing some more ideas to add to my 'To Do List', so please share!

Here's a few projects that caught my eye from last week:

Little Ladybird shared her fun Wall Pouch that was repurposed from a pair of jeans!

How adorable are these Baby Kawaii Kimono Shoes from Buttercream and a Sewing Machine?!

And I loved the Be My Valentine Headbands from Felt So Cute!

Feel free to grab a 'Featured' button....you can find a *new* one in my menu bar!!

Now let's get this linky party started!!

My Spin on the Pin {1.20.12} + Linky

My family made a goal for the new year to be more CONSISTENT in our family scripture study.  We seem to do better when we have something to mark off each day, so when I saw this calendar, I pinned it immediately!

Here's My Spin on the Pin...


I ended up printing it off on white cardstock (the front side only), and put it in a frame that I had on hand, minus the glass.  As you can see, we're not perfect YET (we've missed a few days here and there), but we are doing much better at remembering to study our scriptures!

Now, let's see YOUR Spin on the Pin!  Link up any project you've done that has been inspired by a pin on Pinterest!

This linky party will remain open until midnight on Wednesday, January 25th!

Happy Pinning!

Penguin Hair Clips

My oldest daughter and I made a bunch of flower bows (like these) for the girls' friends for Christmas.  As we were busy making them, I was telling her that I needed to make some snowman clips too.  A lightbulb went off in her head, and she said, "Why don't you make some penguin clips?". 

So this is what I came up with. 


The penguins were made using THIS TUTORIAL as a guide.  I did end up cutting the ribbon for the body at different lengths than what the tutorial calls for....

White ribbon: cut at 3"
Black ribbon: cut at 4" & 5"

My daughters LOVE their little penguin clips, and all of their friends have requested some too!!  Guess I'd better get busy making more!

Sew Cute Tuesday {1.10.12}

So last week I asked for some input from you guys about the future of 'Sew Cute Tuesday'.  I was thinking about maybe opening it up to all types of crafts rather than just sewing projects.  Well, thanks to all of you who took the time to comment, I have made up my mind.  'Sew Cute Tuesday' will remain a SEWING PROJECTS ONLY linky party!  When it comes down to it, the whole reason why I started it in the first place was to get inspiration for sewing projects.  There are plenty of other 'anything goes' linky parties around, so let's just stick to sewing projects around here!!

Here's a few projects that caught my eye from last week:

Increasingly Domestic shared a fun "Name" Beanbags Tutorial!  Love the bright colors!

How cute is this Embroidery Hoop Wall Hanging from Pretty Petal Handmade?!  I think this is going on my 'Summer To-Do List' for my girls!!

And I loved this Hopscotch Quilt from Love Affair With My Brother!

Feel free to grab a 'Featured' button....you can find a *new* one in my menu bar!!

Now let's get this linky party started!!

My Spin On The Pin

Pinterest is my newest addiction...I spend way too much time searching for and pinning projects.  To justify the time that I spend there, I decided to actually MAKE some of the stuff that I've pinned.

I'm happy to introduce what I'm calling 'My Spin on the Pin'.  Every Friday, I'll be posting projects that I've pinned, then tried.  Let's get started, shall we? 

For my first project, I decided to go with food.  Cookies to be exact.

These Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies were calling my name.

And they were oh, so good!  If you're a fan of peanut butter and chocolate together, you will LOVE these cookies!!


What about you?  Do you make projects inspired by your pins?  I'm thinking of maybe starting a linky party where you can share your 'Spin on the Pin'.  Let me know what you think.  Happy Pinning!

Sew Cute Tuesday {1.03.12}

**Sorry!!  I had this all set to post at midnight, and for some reason, it didn't.  I'll be keeping the linky open for one extra day to make up for it!**

Happy 2012!!  I've been thinking for a few weeks about making some changes to my weekly 'Sew Cute Tuesday' linky party, but wanted to get some input first.  How would you feel about me opening up the linky party to include all types of crafts?  It seems that each week, more and more non-sewing projects are linked up, and it's hard for me to find the time to delete them all.  I've even considered having 2 separate places to link up...one for sewing projects only, and the other one for everything else.  Please give me your honest opinion so I can decide which direction to go.  If you like 'Sew Cute Tuesday' just how it is, please say so.  If you'd like to see a change, leave a comment telling me what changes you'd like to see.  Thanks!

Let's see some projects that caught my eye from last week:

I absolutely LOVED the Octo-Squad from Sew Much 2 Luv!!  The masks and capes are just too dang cute!

And how cute are these Rosette Keychains from vixenMade?!

Feel free to grab a 'Featured' button....you can find a *new* one in my menu bar!!

Now let's get this linky party started!!
