Well now, that was a break I didn't plan on happening. Funny how time passes so quickly. I kept telling myself tomorrow, I'll update tomorrow. That's almost a whole month of tomorrows YIKES!
Ok, so moving on. I uploaded some photos of projects I had finished up, but unfortunately they are cell phone pics. The good news is that all other projects I'm working on have been photographed with my Nikon. Yay! Cuz these cell phones pics are just so BLAH.
First up! I made a floor cushion for little man using this tutorial from Living With Punks. Go on, go check her out.......aha! You're hooked now aren't you? Did you get to peek at her recipes too? YUMMY! I used this dinosaur print I had been eyeballing for days at Hancock Fabrics (yes days, I'm there every chance I get haha). The floor cushion tutorial gave me an excuse to snatch it up and voila! Dino Seat for little man:
I definitely need to work on my piping skills. Overall it was really easy to follow and little man loves it, so it's a winner!
Let's see, I also got to work on a couple of diaper covers using this tutorial from Dana at Made. I love her stuff, I have more than a few tutorials of hers I plan to tackle. I can't help how easy she makes it to follow her patterns.
Isn't she a beauty? I made her as soon as Dana posted her tutorial to go with a dress I had made using the Itty Bitty Dress pattern from Made By Rae.
CUTE! I sent this to my newest niece and I can't wait to see her in it!
Gosh, these pics really are horrible. The good news is that this is (hmmm, I just saw my foot in the pic above, glad my toes were painted!) most likely THE LAST post with cell phone pics. I won't lie, it's a bit embarassing, pic after pic, so grainy and the colors come out awful.
OK, back to our regular posting. I made another diaper cover, but this time with RUFFLES! Who doesn't love ruffles???
I made the ruffles using this tute from Char at Crap I've Made (funny, funny name) I used bias tape on the legs to hid the edges of the ruffles. I have plans to do this many more times, I didn't think cute could get any cuter!
The dress on the other hand, was a disaster. It was supposed to be another Itty Bitty Dress, but I cut wrong, then I was going to make it into a gathered skirt, but it was way too long. So I tried covering the waist with bias tape to make into a mini pillow case dress (?) BUT it didn't go over the little girls head. SO, I chopped off the top and made her an elastic waisted skirt. And it's adorable! Sorry, no pic. But trust me, it's a keeper.
And now, to end the torture, the last cell phone pic! hahaha! The Snappy Toddler Top from Prudent Baby is heaven. I picked up this fabric on a whim and it works great for this top.
This was my first attempt at buttonhole making, it was much easier than I thought.
I've got a GREAT little project in the works that I am really excited to show you the outcome. There are a few more things to finish up and then I'll let you in on the secret. ;)
