27 Dresses

So last night I watched 27 dresses (one of my favorites). I was inspired by all the outfits that the character Jane (Katherine Heigl) wears. I have a pile of clothing to refashion covering the floor under my bed right now, so I need to start refashioning.
Here are some ideas:
This shirt looks fairly easy to make, this will probably be my first project.
I love this dress. I think I could make something like that.

This one is definitely my favorite dress out of the whole movie. It's so simple and pretty, I really like the embellishment on the front. I also really liked the shirt she wore when she crashes her hydroplanes her car but I couldn't find a picture. Ohh well I guess I have to watch it again!

Thanks for reading! I will be posting my projects soon! Stay Tuned!

Two new items in my shop!

Come to Chrisandyaya and check out my new creations. I love these earrings!

Reusable cotton rounds- Free crochet pattern!

I inherited from my mother a love for that which is handmade. Every girl (or guy) needs a reusable cotton round. These are great for anything you can use a cotton ball or cotton round for.

So here is my first tutorial. These work up really quick and make a cute little gift. Can't crochet? Get them at my store. Anyone who mentions my blog gets a free wash bag! Note: Make sure to leave a message to buyer or just convo me to get the mesh wash bag.


Hook size H
Start with a magic ring
Rnd 1: 6 sc in ring
Rnd 2: 2 dc in each st
Rnd 3: 2 sc in each st
Fasten off and weave in your ends.

Easy, easy, easy. I use these to apply toner, to remove eye make up, etc. They take the place of cotton balls and those little throw away cotton rounds. They’re machine
washable. I just throw them in a little mesh bag so they don’t get lost in the washing machine/dryer and toss them in with my unmentionables.

Heck, I bet someone really clever could crochet their own bag to launder these little guys.

New item in my shop

I love this headband. I call it a threadband. Every girl loves a headband but they dont like the headache that comes with one. This is soft enough for even babies! Yes, I'm lucky enough to have a cute model but I promise it will look just as nice on you. Here's the link
