Halloween is coming up!

If you're looking for an inexpensive yet unique halloween costume, you've come to the right place! Pair a tutu with some leg warmers, throw in a body suit and you've got a costume!

Yes, she is crying :(

This isn't the greatest picture. I just snapped it really quick before baby started crying, but at least you can see the detail on the leg warmers beter than in the Trick-or-Treat pictures. I called this her "Pirate Princess" costume. I have a pair of the leg warmers left, so I can make another Pirate Princess costume, or trade the bandana for a cape and your litte girl can be a "Twilight Vampire Princess" or put on a pointy hat and be a witch!

Other ideas include: ballerina, pumpkin princess, rocker chick, cheerleader, bride or anything else you can dream up! Choose any pair of leg warmers in stock and design your custom tutu! Costumes include tutu and leg warmers only.

Let me help you come up with an adorable unique costume for your little princess!

Upcycled Collection

I decided to combine my love of recycling with my love of sewing, and came up with The Upcycled Collection. The dresses in this collection are made from used clothing. I'm really excited about some of the unique ideas I have for this collection. Any material used is washed on a sanitary cycle, and since some people may be uncomfortable buying used clothing, they will be clearly identified.

Here is one dress from the collection, a true pillowcase dress (yes it's made from a pillowcase):

Hi! This is the blog for my online stores. This site, as well as my Etsy shop are both works in progress, so check back often for updates. I'm a stay-at-home mom who is tunring a fun sewing hobby into a home business.

My etsy shop is where I'm selling the dresses, tutus and baby leg warmers I make.

In my eBay store you will mainly find adorable childrens Squeaky Shoes. I can't sell them on Etsy since they aren't handmade. I can combine shipping on orders from the different stores if you let me know ahead of time.

I can't wait to show off my creations and share the stories behind them!

Oh yeah- I believe in giving back, so I donate 10% of purchases to charities that benefit children!

Also- make sure to follow this blog (publicly) for discounts, contests, and to be the first to know when something new is coming out!
