Mod Burp Cloths


I made these to celebrate some friends who will be parents soon! I used fabric leftover from my nursery and sewed it onto some pre-fold cloth satisfying!


i used this trick of cutting a piece of cardboard to help iron your edges under evenly...worked like a charm! i was kind of obsessed with how easy and cute these turned out. Kind of want to make a million more!

Pieced Jersey Onesie Dresses

IMG_5940 IMG_5948

These dresses were a pinterest find and I'm kind of obsessed. I was so excited to have a baby girl, but I am not all about all the frilly pink clothes. These dresses are great because they are girly without being frilly. And i can use my favorite baby legs under them so changing diapers is a breeze! 


I may or may not have bought a ridiculous number of tshirts at salavation army to use for this project. The top two pictured are for Edrie, the bottom one is for a friend's baby, and my mom made Edrie two more! Makes me happy that she will have lots of everyday type dresses to wear!

Sock Monkeys!


Quite some time ago, my mom and I decided we should make sock monkeys. I am really happy with how they turned out, but I won't be making any more...all the hand sewing involved made me crabby. My mom made the one on the left for Edrie and I made the one on the right for a friend who just had a baby girl!


We used this tutorial to help us along.

Hair Clips

I have been really into quick, easy projects these days. These hair clips were just the ticket. Of course, they were completed LONG ago and I'm just now blogging them! I have a baby and we've moved 4 times in the last year, so I will use those as my excuses for quite some time..




I used tutorials and templates from pinterest... see here.

Card Books


Saw this idea on pinterest and loved it! I used the template from the blog to cut out the shape from cute scrapbook paper. Then I used stickers to spruce them up! This top one is full of all the cards we got throughout our pregnancy and after Edrie was born.


These two are for Christmas cards. I love the idea of bringing them out every year to look through! I made one for all of our 2011 cards and then another that I'll fill with just our family cards! This was a great 20 minute project to start and finish after the baby went to bed. Made me feel very accomplished! Looking for more quick, satisfying projects!

Tiny Mitts


I'm kind of obsessed with how these turned out. They were such a quick and satisfying project. They still took me a month to complete (I have an infant...don't judge!) but I LOVE THEM!


my mom bought me this yarn...I need to make some booties or something because I have a lot left and it knits up so nice!


Don't you just want to eat her up? It is such a joy to see that face everyday! She likes her warm hands too! 

More details on ravelry (if you are dying to know what the yarn is let me know and I'll dig out the tag)

Block Ornaments


A few of my friends hosted a craft day last month and we made these awesome photo block ornaments. You can find the tutorial here. I LOOVE how these turned out. I made mine for two babies who were born this year.

Salt Dough Ornaments


This was another project Jenni and I tried to complete with the kids underfoot. It went pretty well! I love how they turned out! Jenni just made a quick batch of salt dough, we rolled it out and stuck the kids' hands/feet in. Then we made a hole for the ribbon. I baked them for about a billion hours at 200 degrees.


I sprayed them with Shellac and put a little glitter to fancy them up! Excited to have these to compare to next year!
