Pioneer Bonnets

I was asked to sew 11 bonnets that were cut out and ready to go. I had no instructions, not all the parts, and definitely not enough material. So I got creative and patched two together out of the scraps. How's that for fitting the pioneer theme?
I was told to use pop bottles for the visor. They were awful. Thank goodness for Walmart. I pick up plastic placemats for $1 and cut two visors. It worked great. I could not find any help on the web, so I put together some I learned through this process. I did not realize the picture was so blurry until after they were gone.
Here is a PDF with tips and more pictures to help you if you decide to take on a bonnet project.

Tote Bag

Inspired by the gift I received in May from Annie, I created my own version. I made covers for Tic Tac, stress lotion, emergency repair kit, and post-it note. The paper was double sided K & Company, Sea Grass designer paper.

Wedding Invitation

Thought I would share the latest creation in Adobe Photoshop. They wanted oval fun photos on their announcement. I really like the black and white background. She had them printed as a 5x7 postcard. They turned out great. The website was very reasonable, . If you are looking to have something printed I would recommend you check them out.
