He had a great party yesterday and later him and his brother had a blast painting themselves. I don't know what was the highlight of the day for him... cupcakes, presents, or painting.

Start with a change pad that has fabric on one side and some kind of vinyl or plastic covering on the other side like this one:

I made this same diaper bag, in different fabrics for myself a few weeks back and my sister loved it so we went out and picked out fabric together for one for her. It turned out great, and of course the pictures make it hard to tell but it's really one of those fit everything diaper bags. It has a velcro closure pocket on each side on the outside. Two on the front, and a zipper pocket on the back. In the inside there are 5 pockets all with elastic along the top which make them perfect for holding anything from a bottle to a couple of diapers. It's definately a larger diaper bag, which I love, and I've been really happy with mine so hopefully she loves hers too!
On another totally unrelated note, I won another giveaway!! I really think it's about time I did another giveaway myself after winning 2 in the last few months, so keep your eyes open in the next couple of weeks for a little giveaway of my own! (I really do plan to do this before baby comes so feel free to remind me to get going on it!) The giveaway that I won was a collaboration between Knitty Bitties and mmmcrafts and I got to choose a pattern from Larissa's shop! I was insanely excited about this because I've been reading mmmcrafts for a couple of years now and when she put up the patterns for the Baby Binky Bunnies I knew that one day I wanted to make one. So that's the pattern I picked! And now I can make one! Anyone have some spare time they can send my way so I can actually make it before baby comes??? :)

Well guess who got a pair in the mail yesterday? Yup, me! My two awesome sisters in law and brother in law ordered them for me for my birthday and sent them! I was so excited when I saw the return address on the envelope because I recognized the etsy shop name right away.
Seriously though, these gloves are amazing! They are soooo soft and comfy and they fit me perfectly. I have yet to venture out of the house today but when I do they will be worn!
You can check out more gloves like these and lots of other amazing things in the Off The Hook shop.

I started that baby snuggler the other day but haven't gotten around to sewing it together yet. If it turns out good I think I'll make a couple more, you can never have too many snugglers!
Just to keep up with my etsy finds lately, here's a shirt that I absolutely LOVE.
I really really really love the arrow fletching on this shirt, it's so well done and the colors are amazing... and for those of you who know my husband, this would be one shirt that he would love. I may have to start saving some money...

Here's one project I still need to start and finish before baby arrives.
I've been eyeing up this pattern/tutorial from Puking Pastilles for over a year but never bought it because I couldn't justify spending the money when I knew I could figure it out on my own. But then the pattern went on sale! For $3.99! I figured not buying a coffee the next time I go out was worth the time saved trying to figure the whole process out. So now I have the pattern and no excuses to not get it done. Except of course I have yet to pick out cute fabric. Of course the fabric also has to be gender neutral but that's not hard. The carseat I have right now has been through 3 babies already and seeing as this is our baby #3 he/she isn't likely to get a whole lot of new stuff so this is my contribution.
Simple Sewing for Baby, which I have, and love. It looks like it should be pretty easy and I have a feeling it will come in very handy for camping this summer.
One more thing I've been working on is diaper bags for my shop. I made one at the begining of the week and it sold pretty much instantly. Thanks Liz! I've had a couple other people ask about it now too so I'm just about done two more for the shop. I hope to put them up today.

I've been needing a little case for my hand sewing needles for a while. I keep losing them in various places in my sewing room so I finally decided to do something about it! I made this little blue linen and felt needle wallet and loved it so much I made one for my shop too.
This is the one I made for my shop. It's made entirely out of re purposed materials which I think is pretty cool. There's nothing like taking something old and making it new again!
you can see this wallet in my shop too!
