I know I have been excessively missing in action lately but I have been having fun while away.  My husbands cousin in Pennsylvania just had a baby boy and another cousin of his here in Oklahoma is having a baby shower for her soon to arrive baby girl so I set to work creating. In the process I had to practice my art by creating for my own little ones first so here is what I created for my children while practicing. I made Ryan and Rykers both the same with camoflage and Savannah’s was done in zebra. I really liked how they turned out so I was on to the baby gifts.

The wooden letters I picked up at Hobby Lobby as well as some scrapbooking paper and modge podge and set to work with my creations. Then a staple gun and ribbon so they can hang and that’s it. They are so easy to make and so much fun and look so good when they are finished. I really enjoyed it and looked forward to making the gift below.

 Well sweet little Logan has a big brother Maverick that I just had to include because he is just the sweetest kid as well and he is so excited to be a big brother so first off I made these. I really like how these turned out.

Now it was time to make the creations below. These really scared me to be honest. I haven’t ever made anything like these before. I purchased the Onsies at Kohl’s and the bibs at Hobby Lobby as well as the material and wunder under. After cutting out the letters and hearts I ironed on the wunder under. It was my first time ever using it but did it just like the lady at Hobby Lobby and the instructions told me to. I then did a quick wash to make sure I didn’t give gifts that would fall apart and am glad I did because the wunder under didn’t hold up like it’s supposed to. So I broke out the old Brother sewing machine and stitched the letters and hearts in place. I think I like them better this way anyhow. They look more homemade. These ended up not being so scarey and I really enjoyed making them.

One last thing to complete and Logan’s gifts are ready to go: The card. This was another fun project I really enjoyed. This is the front cover of his card and the inside is below.
I think it turned out very well.

Now this was just for the new little guy. I still had to create some items for sweet little Caitlynn who has yet to make her arrival. So here we go. First off is her little bib and then a onsie. Her room is being decorated in butterflies so that is what I added to her card.

After creating the card it still seemed to be missing something so I added the band of ribbon and bow to the bottom of the card.

I also purchased a few store bought outfits for Caitlyn so they are even on what they will both get. I had such a great time this weekend crafting and have finally put everything back in it’s place and turned my home back into a home. 🙂 

What have you all been up to lately? Any crafting going on?

    Oh wow! Those are great! I'm trying to get into something, maybe I'll start crocheting again. I'm just so indecisive lately.
