Valentine's "Wreath"

This was pretty simple. All you need is a foam heart, glue, a pencil, and about 3/4 to 1 yard of valentine-ish fabric. (Also some ribbon to hang it), The instructions for this project I found at this website. It's pretty detailed with pictures, so that should help a lot.

Mary's Baby Shower

This was fun to plan. It was a headline theme. Everything was pink and black with newspaper!

I know I already posted this, but it kinda goes with everything I'm posting about

These little "suckers" are rolled up baby washclothes, secured with a satin pin (flathead pins) and stuck into treat bags (or cellaphane) and tied tight with a ribbon to keep the stick in. I made the little sign under it, and taped it to the stick.

This is what the little tag at the end of the favors says

Those are Booties on the top of the cake

A little onesy I made Mary with an iron-on transfer.

Crib Bedding

Oh my goodness, this was by far the most challenging project I have ever taken on! I've learned a lot from it, so hopefully I'll still be motivated to do another set for Sienna when we move! I didn't use a pattern for this, I just took measurements of Breck's bedding, and worked off of that. For anyone's reference, the bumper is 13 feet for a standard crib, and it's just under a foot tall, depending on your height preference. The skirt is 54" on the long sides, and 29" on the shorter sides. It is 15" tall. The blanket can just be however big you want, or how much material you have left! I just bought a solid crib sheet for it. If you want the detailed instructions on this exact set, you can leave a comment and I'll post it. It just seems pretty long and detailed for right now. Hopefully Mary's little girl loves it!

Baby Shower Invites

I finally finished the invites for my sister Mary's baby shower. I used recycled newspaper, and paper grocery bags. The rest is pretty self explanitory.
