Yesterday I dropped off my first set of Pearl Girl items at The Linden Tree in Linden Hills. I used the darling fairy and mushroom fabrics sold at the store and upcycled several pair of shorts with the material also and by embroidering some of the designs.  There are five sets of outfits from size 12 months to 4 years. I even made a few headbands to match.

Linden Hills is home to all kinds of wonderful treats and treasures and the newest addition is Pearl Girl! Yesterday I dropped off five sets of pinafores and shorts  of sized 12 months to 4 years. I made them with material that is sold at The Linden Tree. The store is filled with the beautfiul colorful and high quality fabric and is a sewist delight! The shop owner Melissa is also a sewist and was filled with all kinds of inspirational ideas and feedback for my projects. Even Maddie got in on the action and is selling cat toys as a Junior Artist under the name Crafty Kitty. If you have the opportunity, please check out the Linden Tree. In addition to Pearl Girl items, there are many unique and beautiful hand made items for sale including all kinds of fairy kits and tree doors for elves!

Several years ago I made a “Mad” pillow for a friend’s daughter who was having trouble containing her anger and hitting mom.  That pillow evolved a little bit this weekend and allowed me the opportunity to share a little bit my poetic side.

It was quite the scene to watch me make this pillow because I thought it would be a really great idea to take apart an old feather pillow (who’s case had been beautifully decorated by the baby and a pen) and to stuff the pillow with feathers. Hand hitting head, feathers are now EVERYWHERE and difficult to pick up.  I have to admit, the effect was pretty great, you could really get some great punches with the feathers. I had to revert back to old fashioned stuffing though because the feathers kept popping through the fabric and poking my fist…so that didn’t work. It made me so mad, I had to use the pillow a few times.

Now selling at Mish Mash!

Mish Mash had a wonderfully successful grand opening last weekend and so did Pearl Girl.

I spent this entire week sewing and hope to have another successful weekend.  That’s a picture of beautiful Marlena (one of the co-owners of the shop) and the tot (wearing her brand new crocheted sweater we purchased at Mish Mash).  Annie (the other owner created this funky front window display).

I found the vintage Little Boy Blue lamp and switch plate at a garage sale in the neighborhood. Annie added the lampshade.  The lamp is very reminiscent to the Humpty Dumpty lamp I had growing up and now lights up our story time.

I dropped off a bunch of aprons including craft aprons and even one made with vintage fabric (can you guess which one that is?)  I bought at another garage sale in our neighborhood.  We’re really lucky to have some great garage and estate sales around here.

I finally got around to making a little boy’s (or girl’s!) tool belt. This was Crystal’s idea and request from two years ago.  I delivered one to Bellies to Babies too.

Lastly, I put together a few Pearl Girl packages: a picnic kit which includes a beautiful old fashioned picnic basket, blanket, and even a few ants and bugs (don’t worry, they’re plastic).

Of course, I had to do something for Mother’s Day, so I created this little gift bag with a few fun goodies with a card and beautiful and really long mauve pearl necklace with a heart toggle.

Happy Mother’s Day everyone! Please check out Mish Mash for some treasures this weekend!
