Paper bag album

I always loved to make paper bag album out of lunch bags. It is amazing to be able to create a full album with some brown bags. In this one I wanted to do something with a nostalgic look, I love things than remind me the past . That's why I chose this color scheme for my project and I saw almost all pages with the sew machine. I wanted to stamp on the pages but I noticed too late that the paper I chose was pearled and the ink didn't work on it. I also used lace and ribbons I found around than were left from other project.

Sunday's project

Usually Saturday and Sunday are the two days I can start and finish my project. My husband is at home and can watch the girls wile I play with my crafts. So this week end I altered this bag for wine we bought at Trader's Joe. So next time I will go there I can use my cute bag. I'm planning to make my own grocery bags next.
If you want to know I altered this one, ask in the comment and I will be happy to explain you how.

Sarah's present

I made this as a present for my almost sister-in-law. I thought it was lost in the mail but she finally received. I cover 2 papier mache boxes with scrapbook paper and I embellished with things I had around the house. Sarah loves candies so I filled the container with candies and chocolate.

This Saturday I participate at a local craft fair and I made this tutus dress for the event. It was a lot of work cutting all this fabric, but I like the results. The part I enjoyed most was making the flowers. I love fabric roses and they are back in style again.
I also made one of this for my older daughter for a photographic set in DC last week, she looked like a princess.
