Life has been kinda hectic lately so all of my projects have been on the back burner. I figured that the best way to keep me motived is to post my progress on here.
Here’s what I’ve been working on in June:
I’ve been seeing these a lot lately on instagram and I knew I had to try them myself. It also gave me the opportunity to use my scrap leather from Loyal Stricken. If you want some scraps for yourself go [here]. To get there espadrilles soles go [here].
Not shown: I plan on making a separated heel with an ankle strap.
How cute are the bottom of these soles?!
I’ve been working on several different baby gifts and one of them is this adorable pair (well will be pair after I finish the other shoe) of baby slippers from Purl Soho.
*Please ignore my messy apartment*
The next baby gift I’ve been working on is actually finished but it’s too cute not to share. You can find the pattern on Etsy [here].
I don’t have enough done to show you, so this is a finished picture of the Catarina dress from Seamwork Magazine.
My version is pink and a lot shorter (I didn’t have enough fabric for a full length version). Now I need to decide if I’m going to make it a top of a short dress.
What have you been working on?
I’ve been trying to get in the habit of eating breakfast every morning. I needed something that was filling and quick (or at least something that I can take to work easily). I stumbled across this super yummy granola at Target but it didn’t last very long, like 3 days, and by last I mean I ate it fast. Long story short, I decided make my own and it was even better! What is also great about it is it only has 5 ingredients!
Here’s how to make it
4 cups Oats
2 tbsp Quinoa
3/4 cup Shredded Coconut
2 tbsp Honey
1 cup Dark Chocolate Chips
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
-Mix together oats, quinoa, and coconut in a large bowl. Slowly incorporate honey and mix well.
-Line a baking sheet with tin foil
-Pour mixture onto the baking sheet and put in oven for 5 to 8 minutes or until toasted
-While the mixture is still hot, pour mixture back into bowl and incorporate chocolate chips
*Optional: add an extra 1/2 tbsp of untested coconut at the end
