Minion Crochet Hook Case

This is a case I made for my crochet hooks. The pattern I found online was originally for a pencil case but I made it a bit smaller for my hooks instead.

Crochet Octopus

I made these little guys for the 3 younger kids next door. They are made from a pattern I found online.

Plastic Canvas Door Name

I made this for my sons bedroom door. It is done with yarn and plastic canvas. I found the letters to do online but the rest I decided to do it that way myself.

3D Lettering - Canvas Art

I saw the tutorial for the 3D lettering online and wanted to try it out. It worked out pretty well, although it was a little time consuming with the embroidery floss. In the end I think it turned out really cute for a 3 year old named Alia. This was a birthday gift for her.

Gift Card Holders

I saw some similar tutorials and patterns for gift card holders online and decided to make them my own. I liked the Tim Hortons one the best =)

3D Paper Star

This is a star I found a pattern for online that I wanted to make for my little Christmas tree. It is made out of medium cardstock. The little holes you see I also had to cut out with an exacto knife.

Fabric & Button Canvas Art

This is a canvas art piece I did with fabric and buttons. As well I made the fabric flower to go with it. This was for my best friend for a birthday gift.

Quilled/Paper Art Canvas

This is a project I did on canvas with paper. I had to cut out the pieces as well as do the quilling. As well as I made the paper roses too. This was done on 3 canvas pieces that go together in the end.

Quilled Canvas Art

This is a project requested by a customer. They found the pattern they wated online so I re-created it using different & brighter colors. They loved it, and so do I =) Still have to do 2 more similar ones to complete their project!

Quilled Wooden Letter

This is a wooden letter that I painted then quilled with pieces of thin paper. I found some designs online that I put together to get the finished design. This was made as a gift for some friends and their new home.

Crochet Scoodie

This is a hooded scarf, also known as a scoodie that I made. My first real crochet project besides a couple wash cloths. I used a puff stitch for this project.

Crochet Yoshi

This is a crochet amigurumi that I did of Yoshi. It was my first ever crochet project like this but I had a lot of fun learning and trying it out. I think it turned out pretty good for never doing anything like this before =)

Nightmare Before Christmas Purse

This is a purse I designed and made for myself.

Jessie Halloween Costume

This is a costume I did for Halloween. I used an old pair of jeans to use to sew the cow print chaps part onto that I had made. Then bought a white button up shirt with collar to use to sew the yellow and red parts on. For the back I used one of those retractable pen key chains and had sewn it under the yellow fabric and put a big white ring onto it so you could pull it like the doll. For the hat I just bought a plain one and had sewn the white onto it to make it look like hers. I also made the wig just out of yarn.

Diaper Bag Makover

I started with just the plain bag I had received from Nestle and made it unique by adding my own touch. The guitar part is called Iris folding, which is usually done with paper but I wanted to try it with fabric.

King Blanket

This is a king size blanket I made when we got our new bed. I used the pattern from a quilt square but just made it bigger!

Baby Blanket

This is a blanket I made for my son when he was born.


These are some of the ties I designed and made.

Christmas Stockings
