Covered Wipes Cases

A friend of mine had her baby a couple of weeks ago and so I naturally needed to make some fun accessories to accompany sweet little MJ... Here is a pic of the wipes case that I recovered for my DF Frances. It matches the nursing cover I made her for her baby shower!!!
I've used wide ribbon to make cases before, but never worked with stretching the fabric over it. For my first time, I was pretty happy although there are definitely some kinks to work out on the corners and trim, but overall NOT BAD!!! This project started out with just the fabric and then I decided it needed a little more... so, I added the 2" wide brown satin ribbon sash... STILL not enough! So, I decided to try something I've been wanting to experiment with for awhile... RIBBON ROSETTES!!! I've got some practicing to do, but I think my bestie will LOVE this set!

The second Wipes Case I made was for me and my newest addition coming next month!

I've made this version in different colors for my other babies, but I wanted a NEW one in this fun, rusty rose color! Sooooooo pretty, right???

Feather Diva Pens


So, I ran across these pens a few years ago when a friend of mine at the time was making one for someone's wedding sign in pen. I LOVED it but found that it needed a couple of adaptations to make it GREAT! The original pens I saw had a beaded trim that stuck out quite a bit from the pen itself and I felt it looked a little off. So, while at a local ribbon store called Ribbons and Lace, I found a perfect solution! A ribbon that is ruffly AND beaded so that it covers the space between the pen and feathers. This is how they turned out! What do you think???

Wish Necklaces

I ran across these necklaces a few months ago at one of my favorite boutiques in downtown Phoenix, so I thought I'd give my own version a try at 1/3 the cost! You put one of these necklaces on and make a wish... once the thread wears away and your necklace breaks then your wish is supposed to come true! So fun, and a good gift for any person of any age! Go to Phoenix Rose Boutique to buy one or two for your favorite people!!!

These are just a taste of the INTERCHANGEABLE pendants that I hand wire wrap together to make a beautiful statement using fun colors and different size and textures which in turn make one extremely unique piece for that especially unique person you know! I do take special requests and enjoy designing a pendant in collaboration with my client so please to not hesitate to ask... on that note, please do not hesitate to tell me when you feel something does or does not work in my shop! I HEART feedback!

Here's some pics of one BFF, TT., modeling a few of the pendants herself...
