Procrastination pays off... (sometimes)

Quick post...

A few months ago I recieved an order for a custom made money/card box for a 1st birthday party.  I've made money boxes in the past (some include Nemo starfish, Mickey Mouse, pineapple, tokidoki, rasta hearts, cookies, crown, lady bug), but was really excited to do seahorse.  I started this project last night or should I say this morning at 12am and finished a little before 2am!! I'm very happy with the results. :)

The inspiration ~Fisher Price, Ocean Wonders Soothe and Glow Seahorse~

and My creation..
You can see how big I made it!!
Next month I get to finally make my first Hello Kitty one! I'm VERY excited for that one.. and I also get to make a zebra print inspired one for a friend. Got any parties coming up? Orders welcomed. :)

One more thing... today is the last day for the ciellestar giveaway. Enter if you haven't already... a winner will be announced tomorrow!

Happy Friday lovlies. 

Love, S

p.s. I want one of these sooo bad!! I hope I find it under the tree.. if not I'll be getting it for myself for the new year... It's my inspiration to sew more.. and begin designing :)

i love love love your moneyboxes! i don't know what i would use them for since we don't typically do that for birthdays around here, but i was wondering if you could do a tutorial on how to make one! i think it would be the perfect decoration for my little girls' rooms - something to match their room themes. so happy i found your blog! :)

WOW!!! This is amazing! I stumbled across the pic when I was looking for cake ideas for my lil girls 1st bday party and I knew EXACTLY what it was (well not that it was a money/card box but more of a who).. My baby has the same glow seahorse in the pink color and its her fav toy.. Im curious what you would charge to make something like this in a smaller size.. like half that size.. if thats even possible. thanks so much for sharing your awesome creation and for reading this.
