oh baby!


I've been trying to step things up in the baby craft department... this kid is going to be here before we know it! I started this onesie when I found out I was pregnant and just finally finished it last week. So cute, huh?! And you can see that I've been working on my quilt top too. I just have to add the border and the top will be done!


I got the design here and think it is just too cute!


I also had to make another pair of baby legs to match the Oregon onesie. I had these socks - they were just regular crew length so they are shorter and wider than some of the others, but I think they are cute none-the-less.

baby legs from socks...I'm ADDICTED!


You can't get over the cuteness can you? Don't even try...its a futile effort! A week ago I met up with a few friends for a baby craft day. We tackled baby legs from knee high socks using this quick tutorial. They are SO easy! It takes about 5 minutes for each pair and the result is to die for! The girly ones pictured above and in some of the other pictures I made for a friend who just had a baby girl...LOVE THEM WITH THE CLOTH DIPES! Can't wait to see this babe in my belly with some little leg warmers!






Baby Simmons craft day resulted in 5 pairs of baby legs and an AWESOME freezer paper onesie for football season! The two solid pairs are narrower and shorter to hopefully fit a newborn. I used the dimensions listed on babylegs.com to get an idea of what sizes they say fit newborns vs. older babies. The sizing for the 'one size fits most' seemed to work out well on Maddie, who is 2 months old...


You should also be proud... I took the giant leap from charm pack quilter to picking my own fabric last week! I went to fabric depot and all by myself picked out 9 coordinating greys, whites, and yellows, for my babe's first quilt. I was so intimidated, but I think its going to turn out well! I also was really afraid of all the cutting, but because its just a simple patchwork design I was able to cut all 81 squares in a few hours! Can't wait to share more baby crafting...its gotta be in full swing since I only have three more months!
