Hi! I'm Emily, your crafty go to girl. I love all things crafty! I enjoy sewing, scrapbooking, photography, card making, DIY projects, home decor, photo projects, personalized gifts, stamping, jewelry making and just about anything that involves creativity. I run a small Etsy shop called paperpixie crafts. I also have my products in several local shops. I am slowly but surely extending my line of products. My goal is to start filling up my Etsy shop and then eventually open a local boutique. Luckily, I have a wonderful husband who can tolerate my craft obsession, and a great family who is always supportive of my goals. This blog is a sneak peek in to my life and my creative thoughts. I'll be sure to keep you posted with all the cool stuff I see along my crafty journey. Thanks for reading!

It's Tuesday again- bib tutorial and pattern

It's been an eventful week so far- photo shoot, a funeral, my hubby hit a deer, I turned 21, and one of my friends had surgery- but more about all that in my week in review. Back to tutorial Tuesday and the fact that I 've been super busy. 
I'm planning another photo shoot with a darling little baby girl and I plan on making her some cute minky bibs.  I managed to go buy minky dot and cute fabrics to make these fabulous bibs- but never got around to actually making them. SO- I'll post photo of my own bibs when I get them made but in the mean time I'll share with you the pattern that I plan on testing out. I've seen several different patterns floating around the web but this one I think is the best one I've seen. I linked to the chickpea studio pattern from vanillajoy.comKelsey at Vanillajoy used flannel for her little drooler and the turned out cute but I'm planning on using minky fabric like Leigh Ann from Spincushion did in her Baby Breakfast Bib Tutorial. I think I will lengthen the original pattern from Chickpea and use a velcro closure with a fake button. I've never worked with minky before so I hope that these turn out cute. Any tips for working with minky dot?
