The Green Menagerie

Welcome to my little corner of the crafting world! I am obsessed with all things sewing-related, including my newest obsession, machine embroidery. Everything on this blog is handmade by me.

Cowboy Nolan's Book Bag

Take a $2 Walmart bag, some bits of trim and fabric, and a little time on the embroidery machine, and what do you get? A spiffy new church bag for my neighbor's little boy (who just happens to be infatuated with horses and cowboys these days).

Strawberry & Chocolate Goodness

You can't see it in this picture, but Melaina's dress has a pink ribbon around her waist, to match her pink shirt. She would NOT put those Beanie Babies down for anything!

Halloween Jumper

I spent some time playing with my ruffler, and ended up with miles of orange ruffles. So of course then I had to make something to put the ruffles on!

Crazy Twirl Skirt

It's hard to see in these pictures, but the pink fabric has shoes and bags all over it, and the black and white has '40s-era women on it.
