homemade goodies!

My friend Melissa requested this canvas to match the bedding of her baby-to-be, Kinsey! Melissa is due next month, and her belly is the size of a jr. soccer ball. Not even the size of a basketball. TEENY. : ) Just sayin...I was SO big with Abbie...SIGH...
Anyway, here's her canvas. Love how it turned out. It may be my fav - except for the one I made Abbie.

Here's the banner I made for another sweet baby-to-be due in the next few weeks, Kaitlin. I had to take it with the old point n shoot because the Nikon was dead, so the colors are off a bit. It's actually a pretty pink color. Oh well, you get the idea.

And lastly, because I can't resist--my most FAVORITE homemade goodie...SASSY Miss Abbie.
I have some projects in the works, hopefully in the next 2 weeks I will complete them.
On a side note, we are taking my mom's sewing machine in this weekend to get serviced so I can get crackin' on my sewing adventure...YAY!!!


I can make it myself!!

So,  I was looking on online and found these cute diaper wipe cases. One lady was selling them for $30! I thought....she MUST be kidding. So I made my own....

Granted, hers were pretty cute. All sorts of cute material & such. I just used what I had on hand. And jury-rigged a ruffle. All in all, I like it. I makes me happy. And I didn't have to pay $30 plus shipping for it. (Just sayin'!!!)


Canvas & banner love

It all started out with this sweet creation for Abbie.

Then I started getting requests....(!)

They look so much better in person, but a pic will have to do.

Am I getting in over my head??

I have one more in the works for a shower gift.
And two requested, but on the backburner until I get 
more instructions on design preferences...

But they are so fun. A labor of love.

I've also been making banners for birthdays and baby showers.
