Barefoot Sandals

I made these with more glitz and pearls to really make them pop on your feet . These are ideal to wear under your regular sandals as well . The Pearls all around the Ankle really adds to the Sandals , It is like wearing an anklet all in one . Who is not going to look at your feet twice when you walk around the beach in these ?? They are a must have this summer.

These are a size 7 to 9 with a 9 inch ankle
they can be purchased in my Etsy shop @

Pillowcase Dress

I bought vintage pillowcases from one of the shops on etsy.com with this in mind . I didn`t just want the same old pillowcase dresses I have seen with ribbons , I wanted them to be very special so I decided on crocheting the straps with cotton thread giving it just the touch it needed to make them very unique. My passion is coming up with unique ideas so no to items will be the same therefore my other matching pillowcase from the set will be getting a slightly different straps !

What is great about pillowcase dresses is that they will grow with the child ... @ 2 yrs old they can be worn as a long gown and by the time they are 4 the dress will reach below the knees @ about 7 or 8 yrs. old they will be above the knee and can later be used as a top over a cute shorts or pants ! You can really have fun with this , wearing a shirt under neath will give it a whole new look !

This pillowcase dress measures 26 inches in length from top of shoulders to the hem line.
The chest measures 26 inches without stretching and will stretch up to over 35 inches ! lots of room to grow :)

This can be found for sale @ creatingwithni.etsy.com
