I'm Back!!!


So....I have been pregnant and not in much of a sewing-then-blogging mood.  I have made some baby items and aprons for friends lately, but have not whipped out the 'ole camera.  I also haven't done a give away in FOREVER!!  I am going to host a giveaway soon, but for now here is what craftiness I have been up to:

I made my first EVER tooth fairy pillow for my friend's little boy...I made the pocket big enough to fit LOTS of money!!
Then I got a recent Baby shower gift order and thought I would showcase that!  It is an embroidered burpcloth and a Diaper Clutch.  It turned out very boy and kind of sophisticated I thought...

Finally, we I did a little fun preschool crafting with my kiddos...we joined Jenny Garland's girls and did this project I found linked on One Pretty Thing.  I would suggest it for the 5 year olds in your life, but our 2 little 2-3 year olds and 2 month old baby kind of made it hard to manage..

Kyndall carefully "braiding" (twisting) the Octopus legs:

Do you see what I am talking about here with the little ones???

After adding eyes and tying the legs off, they seem to love their little guys!! 

Then we modified for the little girls (notice no "legs")

But Avery loved hers anyway!!  Whew...we have been really enjoying the summer and spending time relaxing and crafting!!

They turned out cute-- it kept the kids busy, that's the key!! :)
