Simple Skirt for Easter

I just finished a simple skirt for myself for Easter. I used the tutorial here at Handmade Mommy (and adjusted the measurements as necessary) and made the skirt out of this Heather Bailey fabric. It was purchased from Just Fabric on Etsy - I would definitely buy from her shop again!

I really like the fabric, too - the picture I took doesn't show how vivid and cheerful the teal is. I have quite a bit left over and am planning to make a few more things out of the fabric - maybe some button earrings, a skirt for my daughter, or a pretty fabric rosette! We shall see!

I have lots more projects I want to work on, including (I think!) learning to quilt. I bought a walking foot this morning, so I have everything I need to give it a try!

What Easter projects are you working on this week?

Free Shipping on Easter Items!

One week until Easter! Free shipping on all Easter items at CJ's Craft Corner! The table runners are reversible, making them have multi-season use. Check them out! Have a great Saturday!

New in the Shop!

I have been wanting to add covered button earrings to the shop and finally did this weekend!! I am excited to make and add more! We would love your thoughts...what would you think of covered button earrings, a tea wallet, and a card in matching fabric as a gift option, perhaps for Mothers' Day?

Treasury Time!

I was so excited to get an Etsy treasury today! Right now, I am in love with the Liberty of London items at Target (which are almost all sold out online and in stores!!). Those items and a recent (gorgeous) spread in Country Living inspired this treasury. Here are just a few of the items I included!

Buy Handmade

We were thrilled to be included in this treasury as well! Thanks to TreacleAndInk!

Does your Target still have the Liberty of London teapots? Love these!!

Spring is Coming!

In Ohio, winter lingers for awhile yet, but this week's weather has been so nice! We've gotten outside to play the last three days in a row!

I changed out my decorations in the house for spring and Easter, plus printed out a few pretty pieces of art to put in my daughter's room and our living room.

I used these two sources:
Kind Over Matter ABC Birthday Prints - in 6 colors!
Feed Your Soul - I used the one from Sarah Parrott from March 2009

I made a myself a pair of fabric covered button earrings yesterday, and am planning to make some to add to our Etsy shop by the end of the month. I am working on some more plastic grocery bag holders to add to our inventory, and my mom started making these envelope back pillow covers.

We planted some broccoli and lettuce seeds last week which are already sprouting inside. I put together a lion storytime for March and have been reading lion books with my daughter. While not about lions specifically, she has loved The Animal Boogie by Debb…
