Some Recent Projects

I know... it seems like forever since I've blogged.  I realize it too!  Here's a look at some projects I've worked on in the last few weeks.  I HAVE been sewing and I've definitely been crafty - promise!
This rag garland is for my daughter's upcoming birthday party - it's an "Under The Sea/Ariel" themed party so this should fit right in!  I used yarn, ribbon, blue/green/turquoise fabrics and ties it all onto some jute string.  It is GORGEOUS!  I kind of want to find somewhere else in my house to use it when the party is over....

an ACTUAL Pursewna bag!  Can't tell you the last time I sewed one of these - which is SAD.  This one went to my friend Emily who celebrated her 30th birthday last week.  It's reversible but has the same fabric on the interior - 
I did put a couple of great navy chevron printed pockets in there though.  :)
This little elephant skirt went to Emily's daughter Isabelle on her birthday - perfect for a 4 year old, don't you think?
(I need to make sure I say that I found the tutorial for these skirts via - it is a FANTASTIC tutorial and I've so enjoyed making these adorable skirts for my daughters and their little friends!!!!!)
Bad lighting - but this one turned out AWESOME!  I love the fabric combination and especially the aqua ric rack on the bottom of the hem.  We gave this little skirt to another 4 year old friend....
My friend Shelly asked me to make her a wreath that will trasnition from Spring into Summer well.  She has LOTS of family & friends who'll be coming to her house soon to celebrate her husband's Change of Command and she wanted something pretty on her front door to greet them!  I am really happy with how this turned out - the color combo is awesome!

Happy Sewing to all of you!  I'll try REALLY hard to post some other new stuff soon!!!!
