Marie Antionette Shoe Kit

Marie Antoinette Shoe Kit

Howdy all!  I'm so excited to share with you what I did with my Marie Antoinette kit from

This kit contained very high quality trims, appliques, flowers, buttons, gems and so much more! I have a tutorial coming real soon that I will also post!  

I adhered the lace trim to the upholstery fabric first then cut out the pattern.  I also sewed around the edges and left a small opening to add Fiber Fill to stuff the shoe. 

Next it was time to add the trims, appliques, flowers, netting, beads and gems!   After I got everything that was pleasing to my eye, I then added color to the flowers with Stickles and Copic Markers.

The darker lace in the top center is from my stash that I purchased at Hobby Lobby.  Please be sure to stop at  and be sure to use my Discount Code:  Cathy20 and get 20% off your purchase of $25 or more.

Altered crate into a Bed Fit for a Queen!

From a Small Crate to a Luxiourious Bed!

Howdy all!  I'm very excited to share with you all my latest project.  I found a small wooden crate in the Spring Label Dept. at Hobby Lobby.  As soon as my eyes saw it I immediately envisioned a bed.  Next I went to the  wood dept. and looked for a small decorative wooden frame.  Bingo!  I'm now in business!

The comforter is double sided with different fabrics. 

I had very few trims left my DT kit from Creating With Details Store but I did put what I had left to great use! Above you will see the Double Scallop Edge Eyelet trim on the headboard and comforter. On the headboard you will notice that I did use  Beige Sari Ribbon.  Oh my goodness I had so much fun creating this!!!

On the edge of this cover I used White Embroidered Lace. Actually I made the cover from a top I purchased at a very low cost  I totally love bargains!   

I applied a piece of wood for the top of the crate with two miniature hinges so the lid can open for storage. I lined the inside with fabric and trims.  

 I also made a You Tube tutorial of how I created this delightful bed!  Al the pillows are also created by me. 

This wood crate went through a total transformation.  I applied decorative wood trim, applied several paints, Padded the headboard and footboard.  You can see on my video all the steps I did and then completely ended up with this.  Oh Well that's how my mind works!
