My little Annelise is going to be Anna to go with my older daughter's Elsa costume {which is currently kicking my sewing butt!} and I knew that I would never get an applique to look right, so I used this free image to make a Silhouette cut file.

I used freezer paper to make a stencil, busted out my paints and this is the result!
 I couldn't be happier! {ignore messy ironing board}

Just a sneak peek....mainly because she flips out every time I put it on her! At this rate my older daughter won't have a costume, my son will only have the head portion and my littlest one will be screaming and trying to take hers off! Wish me luck!

I was scrolling through my old posts and came across my boys look {tied for first place with Cherie from You and Mie!} from Project Run & Play a few seasons ago, and realized how much easier it would have been to make the {awesome, am I right?} shirt if I'd had my Silhouette all those years ago! I figured I'd make the design into a free cut file for y'all if anyone wants to use it. I think my son might need a new shirt! Click here for the free cut file!

As always, send me pics or a link and I'd love to feature you!

My daughter was invited to a friend's Frozen themed birthday and HAD to have something to wear that matched the theme...wonder where she gets that from...  Of course she only told me this the day before and I didn't have time to scour the world {aka Target} for an available Frozen shirt, so my Silhouette came to the rescue! I hoard had some silver heat transfer material, a plain t-shirt from Target {of course} and came up with this. She was very happy and we ended up making another one for her friend as an extra gift.

Check out the details...I LOVE this thing! 

If you have a little Frozen fan, grab the free cut file here. I'd love to feature you if you use it, please send me a picture! Enjoy!


Too Much Time On My Hands

I'm in mourning, Project Run & Play season 10 is officially over. *sniff sniff* Now I have no excuses as to why my house is a mess! Darn. Oh, wait...I have to make costumes now...then Thanksgiving...then Christmas! Yay for putting off cleaning!

Here are my looks for this season, I'm pretty proud of how they all turned out. 
Looking forward to Season 11! 

So here it is folks, the end of Project Run & Play Season 10. Sniff, sniff. I almost didn't get this last entry in, as I'm typing I have 3 hours until the linky party closes!

This week was your "signature style", which took me awhile to nail down. I love to create all types of things, but I went back and looked at the latest things I have made and noticed that they were all super twirly {cause who doesn't like to twirl?} and girly. My older daughter is also entering that weird age group where the little kid clothes are too babyish and the clothes they make in her size look like they should be worn by teenagers. I really think Target needs a section of size 6-10, dontcha think? So very long story short, my style is age appropriate, twirly girly :)

I started with a cap sleeve coat. I modified the Secret Garden Dress pattern by Sprouting JubeJube to get the flounce in front {she has some beautiful patterns!}. It's starting to get a little chilly in the evenings here in Georgia, so I wanted something she could wear that was warm, but not overly warm.

It has an open back...

and ruffles down the front.

It is made from navy twill and a beautiful floral corduroy that I found at Hobby Lobby and fell in love with. The colors are divine! It can be worn open, with a belt or the grey sash I made.

I love the shape the open back and the front ruffles create when it's viewed from the side.

And of course, even though it a coat, it's twirly!

I like to make her separates so she can mix and match. I made a dressier outfit and a more casual one that both go with the coat.

For the causal look I made some leggings, mainly because I love them, and a double layered linen blouse. The blouse is gathered with a grey satin ribbon and the shirt can be worn in either direction. I want this outfit in my size!

The dressier outfit consists of a magenta tulle circle skirt, which is sufficiently twirly,

and a tank top with straps wide enough for school {re-purposed from my husband's old work polo}. I made an iron on for the tank with my Silhouette Cameo, my absolute favorite toy ever! I combined two free images to make a laurel and bow collar shape. {Check back tomorrow to download the free cut file}.

So there ya go, my signature style. It's also my style to not be able to make decisions, so here is your weekly picture overload!

I have loved this season and hope I can sew along again for season 11!

I got it uploaded with 30 minutes to spare...whew! Come back tomorrow for the free cut file {if I can figure out how to upload it...}
