Ooooo ~ Another crafty idea!!

Today's idea is wool dryer balls! I'm off to get Emma at school but when we get home, we're making these!! You toss them in the dryer instead of fabric softener. We're terribly allergic to dryer sheets & fabric softener around here but. . . these are supposed to: get rid of static, get rid of lint, separate clothes for better drying & be good for the environment.

Here's the tutorial I found.

I'll let you know how they come out. I'm excited!

So I get my inspiration from all kinds of places. Sometimes I just see a fabric & the idea comes to me. But. . . here's the latest dress I'd like to make for Ava.

If you've never looked at this web site. . . stay away. You'll soon spend all your money on your children!!

Right now, I'm working on a beautiful smoky blue angora sweater dress. It will soon be for sale at my Etsy shop.

And have you seen the ruby sweater dress? Its to die for! But so is my model!
