Feeling hot hot hot!

Pot Holders. These were .50 each at Joann's. Oh how I love applique. It's my new favorite.
This one is a cupcake, it's just missing the cherry on top.
Bird. Why the heck are these sideways!?

Cards Cards Cards!

I've been making cards for about 4 years now, but never even thought to post about it. Duh.

My oldest brother gave me a pack of pre-cut cards and envelopes two Christmas's ago. I never wanted to use them because they seemed so small. But I gave in and did the other day. How nice was it to now have to cut my own card stock. Although I still love doing it.

These are the ones I cut myself, a little bigger as you can see.

Wow, really?

I know what you're thinking, seriously, another car seat canopy?? In my defense, this one is for my baby, due in about 7 weeks. My Mother in law gave me a hobby lobby gift card for my birthday and I spent it wisely.

I LOVED the fabric the had to choose from. No offense Joann's but little boys exist...incase you didn't already know.

The only real difference on this one is I rounded the edges, made my own ties, and zigzag stitched on top.

This should be the last car seat canopy for a while.

T-shirt Refashion

I was all sorts of excited to do this little project, but after doing it, it looks super 80's to me!
I wanted to try it on but I think my pregnant belly would have stretched it out really bad.
It's a gift, so I hope she likes it!
Up close of the ruffle details, and pinning.

Onesies Anyone?

I am finally following the trends. Applique onesies! Heat n Bond is my new best friend. I also love when fat quarters are on sale for a dollar. Here is what I came up with.

Ice cream cone
Just a circle. I want to do an anchor but not sure I am up to the challenge yet.
Little Tie. Sideways...what the heck...
Star. I swear I didn't take these sideways.
And the back...bum bum ruffles.

Once Again

Another baby gift. I must say this fabric was a PAIN to work with. It's very floppy and stretchy, I am surprised we all made it out alive! BUT it is very light for summer. Block the sun but not overheat the baby.

Vanessa's Baby Shower Gift

Car Seat Canopy!
Here is the pattern I used for it.
I won't lie, it wasn't as long as I wanted it. The pattern called for 36 inches, I only had 34.
So, not 100% perfect, but I think it's darling.

I used ribbon for the ties, mainly because it was simple.
One side was white...
The other edge was green.
And skull and cross bone fabric underneath. A little edgy, but I bet Olive can handle it.
I will be making another one of these, but I will probably never use "bumpy" fabric. My goodness that stuff stretches and shifts around, I may have lost my temper a time or two.

Cody's Curtain

I would like to take the credit for this idea but it was all my husbands. This was a throw blanket that I simply hemmed. I loved it, BUT it wasn't wide enough. This is where my creativity came in. I just took extra fleece scraps we had, and filled in the edges. I think it turned out perfect. AND it matched his "Boise State" room.
