Book Cover

We have a birthday party this weekend for a (soon-to-be) 7 year old.  I figured most little girls love arts and crafts, so I sewed up a personalized cover for a sketch book.  Between the book and a few pretty pens, we're in business! 

 I added a little pocket to the inside cover for papers or pens or whatnot.

I love how it turned out.  Although the size is different, I used this tutorial from Delia Creates.

Pirate Wand

My little guy (the pirate for Halloween), wanted a wand too.  But not a fairy wand.  A PIRATE wand, of course!

So I took one of those sparkly, glittery wand sticks and sewed up a poofy skull and crossbones (the image is an iron-on transfer).  Here you have it!
