T-Shirt to Dress/Long Shirt for Girls

Hi there, so I'm no great sewing expert in fact I'm a learner, very beginner, making a mistake and then learning and doing things over and over and over again kind a faze :)

I have got three girls so I have lots and lots of projects lined up and today I wanted to share this really cute long shirt that I whipped up for my eldest, I love the easy part of it

Here is a pic of my baby brother's t-shirt , whose not a baby anymore :), he hardly wore it once or twice and out grew it quickly I just loved it so much I asked mom to give it to me, which she did, sweet mum :)

The length was perfect and I wanted to keep the hem, and I also didnt want to cut away the collor or shoulders, so I basically just tightened it a bit, by cutting away an inch or so from both sides under the arms and chest.

The shoulders were dropping of-course, to fix that I added elastic, from the neck to the end of the sleeves, it was trial and error to get these right, I had to shorten the length of the elastic a bit then I had originally cut out, kept trying it out on Eshal to see what looked right 

And here is the finished product, it goes well with her red tights, but me being me was in a hurry to get the photo shoot done lest the twins woke up! hehehe

I get my ideas from all over the internet but my fav place is craftinessisnotoptional, I love love her blog and her tips and ticks are just great for beginners.

Baking Cup Cakes on my Baby's Birthday!

Hi there, so last month was my eldest's girl birthday, she turned six! she was very excited about her birthday, the usual deal, her friends get together, the goody bags and lots of running around, and cakes ofcourse!

But this time we did the cakes differently, Eshal said she liked cupcakes rather than cakes, and wouldnt it be fun Mama if you made 50 some cupcakes!
At first hearing 50 cup cakes made me wanna swoon! but then I thought hey why not, I mean not 50 but how about 30 :)

So this is what came about, I doubled my recipe and half of it was chocolate and half vanilla.

For the vanilla cup cakes, I coated them with chocolate spread and put rainbow colored sprinklers

For the chocolate cup cakes I whipped up plain cream can with about 2 tablespoon sugar, then refrigerated it for 2 hours, then I took it out and over whipped it and it got a bit runny! but no worries I dolloped a teaspoon on to each cup cake and then added smarties and sprinklers the affect was so beautiful that everyone ate them before the actual dinner! :)
