~car seat blankets~

Remember the car seat blanket I made for
my new nephew?
I finally got around to sewing some
at an attempt to sell them.

I want to open an etsy shop but I haven't
had the time to research it enough and get it
up so I decided for now to hurry and get them
up on

If you're interested or know anyone who may need
one.......go here.

I have two girl blankets and two boy blankets
and I'm selling them for $20 a piece.

The picture above is one of the girl blankets.

~baby blanket~

The self-binding blanket has turned into
my easy go-to blanket to make this year.
It's so easy and I just love the way they turn out.
Here is one I made for baby girl for Christmas.

Truth be told, I actually bought this fabric for
a friends baby blanket and when I got it home I
loved it so much I decided to keep if for my baby.
It's what gave me the inspiration for her bedroom colors.

~washcloth puppets~

I've been trying to get all the Christmas gifts for the
kids made now because I know I won't have time or
energy after baby girl gets here.

So I know that it's obvious baby girl will be so little
and young that she cannot open any gifts
and she won't know whether she gets any or not
I had to make her some.
It's only fair....don't you think?

I made her these washcloth/bath puppets that
I saw in
Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Sewing & Fabric Crafts.

You can get the book at the library.
It's got tons of fun ideas.

This project is a perfect example of a finished product
that just doesn't turn out as cute as you had envisioned
(like the ones in the book).

This one is a puppy dog.

This one is a pig.

Not my best project or work but
I think she'll enjoy them anyway.

It was a Christmas tradition in our family growing up
that we all opened up a new pair of jammies on Christmas Eve.
It's been one of the traditions I have carried on
with my own family.

Here are the jammies I made for EJ this year.

Just some little flannel pants with an appliqued shirt
to match it. He's really into pirates and ships right
now so I think he'll love them.
I bought the t-shirt at Walmart for $3 and
made the applique with fabric left over from the pants.

The pattern I used was:
New Look #6131

This is a great project for beginners.
