For those of you that have not given up on me posting anything, this is for you.
I have so many friends and family members that are having babies this year, that my usual gift of baby booties has reached an incredible number. I love making them so I am glad to have the opportunity to make so many. I tried out a couple new patterns on a few of them. I used THIS pattern for these booties. I liked how they turned out, but it's probably a pattern I won't use again too much.
These I made from a pattern I designed earlier this year for my niece. I misplaced the pattern for a couple months and came across it and decided to see if I could make sense of what I wrote down. I didn't do too bad, but there are still a lot of changes I need to make before it is understandable to anyone else.
What do you do when one child has a pumpkin shirt and the other child really wants to wear a pumpkin shirt too and you don't have another pumpkin shirt? If you're like me, you go to the closet of craft supplies, find something orange, and get creative. The first orange thing that I saw was a zipper. I've seen a lot of things made out of zippers lately so I figured it would work. I think it's perfect, especially for a girl who likes sparkly things and pumpkins. Not too bad for having 20 minutes to make it before we had to leave.
I made another Pod Swaddler for a baby shower gift. I need to make a couple of these for myself before #3 comes. I wish I had some when Donevan was a baby because he loved to be wrapped up tight. I liked the old fabric that I found in my mom's stash and thought I was pretty neutral and could be used for a boy or girl.
I wrapped up Iris' doll to give you an idea of what it looks like all done up.
And I just wanted to throw these little guys in. We wanted to get in Halloween spirit. I discovered I really like bananas frozen. Iris mostly just picks off the white chocolate, but they are such yummy treats! And really easy.
Let me know what you think!
