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.
