Well, I finally got around to two different projects that I had at the top of my "to-do" list! I filed these away in my Idea Folder (if you don't have one you must make one!) about a month ago and was so excited to see them finished!
My Window Pane Project for Greta's room!
I have seen these window projects here, and here, and here, and honestly... everywhere! I knew I wanted to make one, I just had to find the time and the right place to put it.
I grabbed an old window pane I had bought off of Craigslist for $5.00
Then I cut some fabric to size, ironed out the wrinkles, and hot glued it to the back of the window frame.
Super cute, super easy! I love this polka dot fabric!
Then I took some of my favorite pictures of Greta, made them black and white, and arranged them like a collage in all six of the window panes. (I chose to glue/tape everything on the outside of the window instead of inside under the fabric. That way when I want to change or update the photos it is super easy.)
Once the photos were in their place I just simply added some little "ditty's." I hot glued flowers and wood buttons I spray painted in Ivory. It just brought the whole project to life!
See, how cute and easy was that?!
A Flower T-shirt for Ms. Greta!

I saw the idea here made by Melissa over at nannygoat and loved it! What a simple way to dress up a plain ole' shirt!
So I headed over to Target and low and behold... found solid colored t-shirts on clearance for $2.50 a piece!!! You guessed it... I grabbed one in every color!
I turned this...
And trust me, it was not hard at all!
I just took three different color fabrics and cut out some curvy looking blobs. I layered them on top of one another and sewed them straight onto the shirt with a button to hold them in place! It was a night of hand sewing while I sat on the couch in sweatpants watching Friends with my hubby!
I am so glad I got these done and was able to check them off my list! Now on to something new! Hmmm... what project to start next?!?!
