Tooth Fairy Pillow

Summer has been busy!

Here is another little present I made for one of my daughter's friends.
The birthday girl loved her pink tooth fairy pillow with her name on the pocket and a ballerina applique.
She just started ballet classes, so the present was perfect,I think.
Today's girls have so much "stuff " that something different, made specially for them really stands out.
And the parents like it too.
That's all for today. Soon I will be posting my recent projects and new craft books. I am waiting for a special package from Amazon.
Tenho estado ocupada este verao!
Aqui est'a outro pequeno presente que fiz pra uma das amigas de minha filha.
A aniversariante adorou sua almofada cor de rosa da tooth fairy (fada dos dentes) com o nome dela no bolso e uma bailarina aplicada.
Ela comecou aulas de ballet a pouco tempo e isso fez o presente ser perfeito,eu acho.
As meninas de hoje tem tanta coisa, que algo diferente, feito especialmente para elas, realmente se destaca. E os pais gostam tambem.
Isso 'e tudo por hoje. Logo vou mostrar os meus mais recentes trabalhos e novos livros de artesanato. Estou esperando um pacote especial da Amazon.

Cupcake Apron and Chef Hat

Hi !

My daughter had a lot of birthdays to go to, so I decided to make some handmade gifts this summer.
One of them was this cute set of apron and chef hat. I used the cupcake print from Timeless Treasures and the polka dot fabric from Michael Miller.
It was a success!
Soon I will be making more from the same fabric.
Santa will bring it for Christmas together with a baking set and some felt cookies!
Also, we are donating a girl's baking basket for the silent auction held at the Los Angeles walk for the Children's Tumor Foundation. It is a great non-profit organization that gives hope to families living with Neurofibromatosis (NF). To know more about the foundation and all the great things they do and about the LA walk, please go to
I will post pictures of the baking basket as soon I finish it.
