Then I made a few baby gifts.
A tie onesie...and a soft cuddly blanket to match.
Isn't it cute?
I would LOVE to make more of these...so if you want me to make one for you...let me know.
I would make the blanket and onesie tie...for $35.
Here is a different print...
So after blankets and onesies with ties on them, I decided to try out a few other pinned items on Pinterest.
Are you on Pinterest?
WOW...it is a great place to find fun ideas...and to waste a lot of time.
I love it...well, not the wasting of time, but finding the ideas.
If you want directions to any of these ideas...go to my pins and the links will take you to the right blog.
I also decided to make a few ruffle pants for my girls.
These pants were really just "practice"...
but they turned out so well that my daughter is actually wearing them to school today.
Hurray for kiddos wanting to wear the things I make for them!
I wonder how long that will last. **wink.**
They go so well with her Matilda Jane outfits.
Love Matilda Jane...but I can't afford it all of the time.
I am looking forward to making the girls "jean" ruffle pants next week.
I think I will make them a little more slimming...these ballooned a little too much at the bottom.
And then I have made MORE pillows.
This one is so fun...love trees.
She sits in my craft room...this one I could also make if anyone is interested.
Cost of this pillow case...$15.
(does not include that pillow form.)
So...that is what I have been sewing with my new favorite thing.
Grandma, you are loved and I am SO thankful for your gift.
I will use it often and promise to take good care of her.
I will think of YOU every time I sit down in front of her.
I will be filled with joy...because of YOU.
Love you Grandma.
P.S. Nothing brightens my day more than a little comment...so if you want to make me smile...why not tell me which project you like the best? Thanks friends!
