Crafty Tuesdays (a wip)

Go check it out over at Her Southern Charm! She made the most adorable linen bag with applique. (By the way Mrs. Southern Housewife, I'm totally inspired by Pink Lemonade Boutique, too--she's awesome!)

This post will be short and to the point. I had a busy weekend and my husband had a day off from work yesterday so there was no crafting for me. I'm just getting started now so I'll give a little sneak peak:

Notice the pink! I'm into all things pink and frilly and girly. What am I going to do if I have another boy?! Anyway, I'm going to try my hand at applique. I'll finish it up in just a bit and come back and post the results. Stay tuned! :)

Okay, here it is. My attempt at applique. Drum roll, please:

Aaagghh!! Oh, the horror! I officially stink at applique! That's okay, it was fun trying. Not really. I got frustrated. But...I'll try it again. On a random piece of fabric and not a perfectly good onesie! lol

So, since I failed miserably at that project, I think I'll leave you with some yummy goodness by other people who actually can applique very well!

Lemons and Lollis She is awesome! Corina has an Etsy shop but it's closed for the moment due to the fact that she recently had a baby boy. Look at her work!

Amazing stuff, right?! Check out tons more on her Flickr photostream.

Another very talented lady is Christa at Dapper Duds. She also has a fabric store on Etsy: Sew Good Fabric.

Alright, I feel as though I've redeemed myself...lots of adorable stuff to make up for my mess of an applique project! Take care, everyone! :)
