You may have noticed a new look to my blog - I have been wanting to update it for a while, but just have not had the chance. So here I am at Midnight on a Friday Night blogging about it - What a life!
With the help of BGPatterns, I created the background... super simple. Just add this to personalize your blog using this tutorial from Blogger Buzz.
Then last night Peepers & I went to a field close by our house to take a new photo for the header.
Today Made had a tutorial on how to create a blog header today using Photoshop Elements (which is what I use for all my photos/headers). I did not create a collage look like the tutorial, just used some fun photo effects.
I'm really please with how it turned out :)

Here is the pocket.
I cut some circles out of felt for the eyes. I played with them a bit to determine what expression I wanted the monster to have.
I simple stitched the eyes on to the tee thru all layers of felt at 1 time & the tee was done!
Now, If I could only get my other Little Monster to model it on for a few photos!

between 2 large sheet of paper.
The lace is 4" wide - I marked every 7" with pins down both sides of the tee pinning thru both front & back layers of fabric (the first row of painted lace will be positioned just below the neck line & the bottom row of painted lace is just above the hem). Measure & pin carefully, you don't want your lace stripes to be crooked.
Thank you, Karla
