Before I got to catch up on all my sewing that I wanted to do though I had to make 4 dozen cupcakes. We were doing a Volunteer Appreciation Event for work Thursday night so I offered to bring the cupcakes. Our logo is a teal butterfly so I topped them with some butterfly candies I made-- I also brought my cupcake tree.

Once the cupcake project was out of the way, I was ready to break in my new sewing machine! WOO HOO! My brother-in-law's little girl is turning 1 this week and we are celebrating next weekend, so to start, I got to work on some presents for her. I made her a "pillowcase dress", though it is called a pillowcase dress and can be made from one, I just used cute fabric I found at JoAnn's. (Ties in the back, we don't want a 1 year old little girl undoing her dress)
And apparently she really likes elephants, her birthday party is going to be pink elephant themed, so I saw that it was only fitting to make her a little elephant stuffed animal.
And after all that, I still had some of the fabric left (which I won't use considering I have a little boy...) so I decided to make a little diaper clutch for them as well.
Once all that was done, I finally got to make our curtains for our living room! YAY! I mean, we've only lived in the same apartment for almost 2 years without curtains in the living room. I had some extra fabric from that project too so I made some matching throw pillows.
