Saying goodbye to my guest room...

So now that we are having our third little girl it was time to retire the guest room and turn it into a play room.  It was my favorite room in the house so I'm sad to see it go. Right now I'm in the middle of transforming it into a fun girly  
play room, and  I'm excited about how it's turning out.  Pictures are coming soon.

I used my grandma's antique hats, gloves, umbrella, and scarfs for decor.

She also let me have these antique pictures.

More Tank Top Ideas...

Here are two more tank top I made by using the same technique as the previous post.  Except the one above I arranged the sewn jersey knit circles into a circular flower shape.

The skirt she is wearing was mine that I used for a swim suit cover-up and I just cut off excess material from the side and stitched it back up.  I love it on her.

Go HERE for directions on how to make this tank top.

Tank Top Embellishing...

So now that summer is here in AZ its time to get all the tank tops out and have some fun making them cuter for my girls. :)  I get mine all from Wal-Mart.  They went up in price from $3 to $3.50 ha ha.  I have a bunch of jersey knit material  that I used.  First I cut circles of various sizes.

Next I twisted the center of the circle and sewed over and back of it to give it a little twirly look.

Then I messed around with the lay out until I liked what I saw, and started sewing them individually into place.

After the black ones were all secure I added some smaller pink ones.

My little Ham :).
