Fun Fashion Finds For Fall!

Oh my goodness – are you sick of me saying how ready for Fall I am yet? Yes? So sorry. I would like to consider this Fall – it is September for goodness sake, but it’s really still too warm for chili and sweaters and boots (I can’t find) and scarves. So…

Buttons and Frills Knockoff Skirt

Ok – if you’ve been around Flamingo Toes for a while – you will probably recognize this skirt. It was actually one of the first things I ever pinned (and can you believe that was less than 1 year ago? It’s crazy how much Pinterest has grown and changed things.)…

Swirly Sweater Refashion

I have been wanting to do a sweater refashion for a while – and when I saw Ellie G’s over at Less Cake More Frosting – I knew the direction I wanted to go! I love the swirls she painted on – I think they’re just darling. And so is…

Well we’re starting off 2011 with an odd title aren’t we?? I hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas and New Years! We had such a great time visiting with family and friends and playing with the kids and just relaxing. But I feel like I haven’t posted in forever…

Painted Starfish Top

This is a repost of a tutorial that was on Blue Cricket Design back in June, in case you missed it. It used to be called the Summer Starfish Top – but it’s almost the end of summer so I had to rename it. :) I fell in love with a cute Target top –…

Tablecloth Refashion

Check out my new-vintage tablecloth. . . Tricked you didn’t I??? ;) I’ve been wanting to make a tablecloth skirt (as weird as that sounds) for quite a while, ever since I got my copy of “Sew What! Skirts“. LOVE this book. And they have the stinkin’ cutest skirt made from a…

Summer Flower Flip-Flops

I promised you a few days ago a pair of flip flops to match our cute Summer Flower Tote bag. Here’s what I came up with. My dad still calls flip-flops “Thongs” – just to freak the kids out. It’s awesome. These little cuties were pretty easy to make. No machine…

Sprinkled Shells Knockoff Top

I’m in a clothing rut. I will admit it. I was doing laundry this week, hanging shirts up to dry, and I noticed that three-quarters of what I was hanging up was pink. Lots of pink. Which is all good – I love pink. But I decided I need to add in…
