Butterfly Pins

I love making these decorative sewing pins.  These ones are butterflies.  There are two kinds in this picture, pink butterflies with yellow wings or white butterflies with pink wings.  They turned out really cute and fun.

Flat Spiral Bracelet

These bracelets are so fun to make and surprisingly easier than they look. The different looks range from fun to elegant. You can use all different kinds of beads and colors. If you enjoy making jewelry you should try these out, here's a link to a youtube video that I think is really good.

Baby Giraffe

This was so much fun. Embroidering all the spots on the back were tedious but well worth it. I couldn't get his neck to stand up straight for the picture so he looks like he's lamenting to the sky. My daughter carries him around by the neck and then grabs his muzzle and gives him big kisses. So now me and her have to fight over who gets him :)
