Make Your Own Peace Sign Wreath in Ten Minutes


Hey y’all! So yesterday I was in the car with my mom chatting about needing a large sign to hang on the porch. I’ll spare you the details but mom suggested a wreath, I mentioned that a giant peace sign wreath would be cool, we ran in to Michaels, I bought a grapevine wreath and a swag and headed home to get crafting. Because my parents are the coolest, I showed my dad the supplies and mentioned what I had in mind; in TEN minutes time, he created the wreath exactly as I had envisioned it. Man, I LOVE my parents!  Anyway, while dad was working his magic, I thought “I bet other people will totally dig the simplicity of this style; I should take some pics to share” – wham, bam, here we are!

There is probably some blog etiquette somewhere that prohibits me from calling this a tutorial since it is only two steps long and the photos were snapped haphazardly. ((shrugs)) Cheers to keeping it simple and authentic here at Daydream Believers Designs. xx M

Lions and Tigers and Notes, Oh My!


Hey friends! A few of you have messaged me asking where am I and where’s the Spring collection ;)
Best clients/friends ever! Seriously!
Just checking in today to say HI! I’m here! And the Spring pieces are coming! I’ve delayed their release as I’ve been busy wrapping up a personal project. Here’s peek at what I've been working on these past 4 months! <3
Lion King Jr Costumes

I had the pleasure of being the costumer for our local production of Lion King Jr! This was such a fun experience! The entire design team and the parent volunteers were SO creative and worked very hard to create a magical show for our kiddos. The kids put on an incredible show – selling out most nights! It was an incrediably fun experience to be a part of and I *may* already be sketching ideas for another show! ;)
Now, to get down to business, I have a few NOTES for ya!

* Tiger Tunics shipped out today. All local deliveries are scheduled for this evening and tomorrow morning.

*Mark you calendars for NEXT Saturday & Sunday, April 8-9! I’m participating in a Mini-Expo at CKC Virtual Stitch Expos. The theme is CHARACTERS! I have a one of a kind piece you are not going to want to miss! I’m hoping to squeeze in another before the expo. I’ll post the sneak peek here, next week, but be sure to follow CKC Expos on Facebook for your chance to win a cart pass or some extra shopping cash!
Alright, I'll get to back to posting regularly, someday my friends. As always, THANK YOU for following along! xx M

Sewing With Kids–The Glam Unicorn Skirt


My girls and I were chatting last week and Iyla mentioned that homeschool would be a lot more fun if there was more time for crafting. Since one of the perks of homeschooling is that we have some flexibility with our daily schedule, I happily agreed. I figured I’d block off some time each week that would be dedicated to creating.  Conveniently,  my fabric delivery arrived the next day! As soon as I saw this pretty unicorn print in person, I knew it would be perfect for a sewing lesson. Excitedly, Iyla agreed and quickly decided she wanted to make a skirt.

With a little supervision, she was able to make this pretty little skirt in one afternoon using the “Playground Skirt” tutorial from my blog. She has done some hand-sewing, and bits of sewing on the machine here and there, but this was the first time she worked on something from start to finish all by herself. She was so diligent. It was the sweetest thing. 

Kids can sew. How to make a twirl skirt

I tell ya friends, give your kids the paints. Buy them the cool calligraphy kit. Set them up at the sewing machine. Allow them to bake that cake. Let them explore their interests and talents. God gives us all special gifts; encourage your little ones to discover theirs. Who knows, this girl may take over Daydream Believers one day!  Have a joy filled weekend! xx

Anchors Away Mother Son Birthday Set


Anchors away! That was the theme for this custom order. I created a stylish infinity scarf to match two custom birthday tees for a fun loving mother/son trio. The boys, turning ten and seven, will be celebrating their birthdays aboard a luxury cruise ship; lucky ducks! My client requested that this set match without being identical; I think these coordinating pieces came together beautifully. Each shirt features handcut applique made from the same anchor print as Mama’s scarf.

It’s always a pleasure to create custom birthday outfits. One of a kind outfits are a special way to make your little one’s birthday unforgettable! It’s especially fun for me to create pieces I’m not often asked to make; like scarves for Mom and tops for BOYS! If you’re interested in commissioning a custom piece, let’s chat!
