Well, lets get onto the craft stuff. A little of what I've been up....
Baby Shower Gifts (For Shower 1 of 3 in January/February 2012)
My FIRST EVER blanket. Okay, so it's a little bit of a cheater. Last fall Walmart was phasing out their pre-cut fabrics to make way for the bolt fabric comeback. So I picked up some "kits" at crazy prices... Way less than what the material itself would've cost me. And since I
Some burp rags for the same friend. At the same sale at Walmart I scored some really cute flannel in 5 different patterns. Each pre-cut piece was just about perfect for a burp rag. I just added some batting (which I needed for my blanket anyway! And got with a 40% off coupon at JoAnn). I was running out of time and am not a big fan of hand sewing so you'll notice one I tried out the fringe look on. I'll be going with that for
future burp rags.
I came up with the tags because on my blanket, the spot I left open to turn it right side out- well it was not the most amazing job of hand sewing it shut that has ever been done (remember I am still a BEGINNER!) so I wanted something to cover it up a little. I used a fabric marker, a $1 clear stamp and white ribbon. And I really loved how they turned out.
I just loved the monkey flannel fabrics, I almost couldn't use them/part with them because they were SO stinking cute.
Does anyone else ever have the problem of not wanting to use fabric because it's so pretty/cute you just almost can't cut it up????
