Bakery Card and Boot Cuffs

   Hi, Hope you all are doing well. Thought I would do a quick post. Wanted to share a few pictures of some things that I made for my Grand Daughter for her Birthday. 

First I would like to show you the Card that I made her.

It's a Card of a Bakery. She has been saying for a few years now that when she grows up she would like to have a Bakery and that she would call it Sweet Day Bakery.
So I just had to make her one. I had a lot of Fun making it and she Loved It.
 Here is a list of the things I used to make the Card.

Cricut Cartridges-

Sweet Treats  Cake, #8, Cake Stand and Tag
From my Kitchen- Cupcakes
Gypsy Wanderings- Window Frame

Stamp Sets-

Stampin Up Weathered Background- For Window Frame
S.U. Itty Bitty Background Stamps- For Cupcake Frosting and Tag
Foam Stamp Set-  Celebrate
Sweet Day Bakery- Printed from Computer

S.U. Scallop Punch
Baker's Twine (Honey Dew) from The Twinery
Stickles- Star Dust


Basic Black,So Saffron,Bashful Blue,Positively Pink,Green Galore, Lavender Lace,Yo Yo Yellow

 I would also like to share with you the Boot Cuffs that I Crocheted her. I was so Excited that they actually fit perfectly and she Loved them. I am going to be making her a few other sets in other colors. 

If you would like to try making some of these. I will have a link to Vanessa's Blog at the end of this post where I found the pattern for the Book Cuffs.  I did change the pattern just a little. 

On her blog it calls on Step Seven, you are to repeat steps 3,4 and 3 again in that order. I only did step 3 and 4. Which is a row of Double Crochet and finish It off with a row of Single Crochet.

When making these I had no Idea how big to make them and didn't want my Grand Daughter to know what I was making her. So to get an Idea of the measurement, I waited for her to fall asleep and I took a piece of Crochet Thread and wrapped it around her leg where I thought the boot Cuffs would be and tied It.

It worked,  Us Crocheters have got to do what we gotta do. Right?

Here is a link to the pattern.
