Pastry Cloth and Fabric Dyeing with Freezer Paper

Sooooo... I did sewing project 3 before completing project 2.  I needed to step away from the maternity skirt, and I really need to do a little research on heming. 

Anyway, today I decided to make the pastry cloth from the Pinterest pin on my "sewing" board. I'm super stoked about how it turned out!  Hopefully it'll be as awesome when I actually use it!!!

So here are the tutorials I used to complete this project.

Mother's Day Gift Bag

With Mother's Day around the corner.  I decided to, yet again, have a little fun with my Silhouette Cameo and some vinyl!

Go to for the Cut File I used.  I had to edit it a little since neither of Gwen's grandparents goes by "Grandma". 
Check out her blog while you're there.  I found a bunch of great ideas!

This machine was going to town on making those cuts, while I got to sit back and wait for it to finish.  Then I had the joy of removing all the unnecessary vinyl.  UGH!  I actually had to recut one.  You really have to be carefully how small you go with text if you are using vinyl.

Anyway.  Here is the finished "Gift Bag"
I think they came out pretty nice!
