So, turns out a blog break isn't all bad. The girls and I have been enjoying some beautiful, sunshiney weather {finally!!}, and since Jeremy is off hunting, we've had a little extra time for . . .


Oh how I've missed projects. We've been so busy lately ~ moving and organizing and getting settled; finishing up our school year; preparing for a new baby; and all sorts of other odds and ends, that we just haven't had much craft time. But the last couple of days we made the time.

A sneak peak:

For her birthday, Makenna received an American Girl sleeping bag for her doll. Sierra's been wanting one ever since. So the other day we were at the fabric store, and I picked up some super snuggly {and cute} minky with thoughts of just making a sleeping bag myself. I'm not a seamstress. At all. I love making baby blankets and bibs, little burpies, and even some appliqued onesies, but I don't do zippers or anything crazy like that ;) But I attempted it anyway, and we thought it turned out pretty cute! I even stamped a little silver tag that reads: Meg, {her doll's name is Meagan}, and attached it to the zipper.


I've also been making little headbands and photo props in anticipation of our new little one's first pictures! Can you tell we're a liiiiiiitle excited about her arrival?projects1

Kam decided she like this one, and put it on for awhile ;)


I love these colors.


And a tiny little basket that she can snuggle inside for picture day :)


That's what we've been up to. How about y'all?

Great projects. I've never done a zipper either.

I can't wait to see pics of the baby with those little headbands on!

I love the headbands!! You did an awesome job!

And good job with the zipper! I remember helping my sister sew a dress last year. That zipper was by far the hardest part, but we did it!!! :o) As far as I know the dress is still holding together - no wardrobe malfunctions around here!

Geez, such adorable things!!! I have never attempted a zipper. I'm scared!

Awww, I love it all. What great pictures you will have with homemade gifts for your baby! did great and made a sleeping bag and a stamped tag...adorable. I bet Sierra is thrilled. Love the headbands and photo prop too.

You have been a busy bee! :)
I love the headbands and the basket too....YOU are so prepared. Does the baby have her own room, or is she sharing?
I think of so many fun things I could make...if only I could sew!!!

Awesome job! Can I borrow you for a while? :) I'm excited for our little one's first picture day too! I've been looking for different baskets around the house for months! LOVE the headbands, and the basket is the cutest thing ever!

You're amazing! I have trouble finding stuff I like for headbands without spending a fortune. I love the felt!! And the aqua and favorite. I'm in the middle of making headbands for the girls for a wedding we are attending this summer. LOVE that basket!!
