sharing from my heart to yours
Lately I have been enjoying making blankets again. Thought I'd share a few of them with you here.
This monkey blanket was made for a good friend of mine who recently had a sweet little boy. I had a lot of fun making it!
It's an oversized blanket (around 45"x45") with two layers of simple cotton so works well for swaddling, nursing, throwing over a car seat, and so on.
I do have more of the monkey print and the red dot fabric if anyone is interested.
My little Vayah is in the process of moving into her own bedroom. We finally got the crib set up and I have been having fun making a girly room all pretty :) While I waited for the crib to be ready, I made a 'quilt' for her.
It's a fairly light weight blanket using only cotton fabric for the backing, middle layer, and quilted top. The ruffle was fun and made it more girlish. And I love the cream print on the back embellished with flowers.
The blanket fits perfectly in the crib, and will be nice if she uses it for a toddler bed too. I also have used it some in the chilly winter here to cover the entire carseat and keep Vayah warm going outside.
This blanket is similar to the monkey one in size and style. I love the print and colors of this one. It could be used for either boy or girl. I am selling this blanket, so let me know if you would like more info.
Thanks for visiting my blog again!
Have a wonderful week!
I've always wanted a Nativity set to display at Christmas that was kid friendly. That way we could learn the story, using the characters to make believe at the same time! Most of those type sets were more expensive than I wanted to spend, so I made my own using peg people.
Each day of the first part of December, my boys got to open a package from their Advent Countdown (which I'll tell you about sometime!) containing one of these characters.
Unfortunately, they got quite used (notice the scratches) BEFORE I realized that I should have used some sort of sealer on them. Might have to touch them up, or just keep them that way for memory's sake.
Nothing fancy, but it was fun, easy, and best of all CHEAP! I hope to create more Bible characters for my kids to play with and learn other stories from the Greatest Book ever written.
Thanks for stopping! May you be blessed
Back in...oh...September or so, I helped my husbands family put on a baby shower for my sister in law. I got the fun job of doing decorations, which I thoroughly enjoyed! :)
We did a vintage style children's book theme and I pretty much used everything I had at home, so very little expense on my part.
"Once Upon a Baby" banner made with book pages and lace
Centerpieces. Kids books held up with wooden blocks. We used the letter cards and had everyone write baby name idea starting with that letter, along with a piece of advice or favorite baby product.
The poster I made as a gift and part of the decor
Food table (minus most of the food!) Each food item had a related 'book' made next to it. We did a brunch, so the muffins had 'If you Give a Moose a Muffin' and so on.
Gift Table...waiting to be filled!
It's nothing fancy, but I hope it inspires you to create fun decorations for a baby shower with the things you have on hand at home! Let me know if you want to know details of how anything was made.
Have a blessed day!
