What's Cookin' Dolly?

Inspired by the fabric, I just had to do an apron for dolly. The pattern I used for the apron is from Simplicity Sewing Pattern 2761 .

As for the adorable retro baking fabric, I picked it up in a local fabric shop, it's Paddington's Party, "Baking Ingredients on light blue". The yellow and white dot fabric is part of "Isn't Christmas Jolly" by Mary Engelbreit.

First, I used the   red velvet cake  recipe that came with my  Babycakes Cake Pop Maker  machine which I ordered from Amazon. Once the cake pop balls were cool, I placed whole and half balls in the cake pans and poured the cake batter (white and chocolate ) over them. Bake. Surprisingly, they don't overcook being baked twice! So fun and I love the contrast of the r

Staying Sharp: 5 Ways to Sharpen Your Sewing Tools

1. I'm willing to bet most of you have this first item and don't even know its true potential! Did you know ever notice that silly little strawberry hanging off your tomato pin cushion ? It isn't there just for looks (LOL), Mr. Strawberry is filled with something called "emery sand".

Check out my  pin cushion Pinterest board  for a start.
