Costume Parade

THE GREAT PUMPKIN! Having a son has been amazing. This year I had a partner in crime celebrating andd setting up for Halloween this year. I got busy making Max's First Costume! I found the pumpkin hat for $1 at Joann's a few weeks back and decided that I could make a costume to match. I think it took about 4 hours. He wore it for about 1 hour, but it was worth it! He's only 2 months old but already growing out of 3month sizes. I made it a bit big so hopefully future kids will be able to wear it. I must say that it turned out Amazing and it gives me hope for my future Costume Making Abilities.

About a week ago my cousin's son Charles decided he wanted to be a donut... He's 12 and I couldn't dissapoint him.

Lizzie's First Projects

I am a proud AUNT! I meant to put these pictures up Months ago, but then I found myself pregnant and lost all train of thought.

So I started out when I found some really bright fabric and mixed them all together to create a small quilt. It fits her crib and is backed in a soft flannel. I made all of this back in the spring, and gave them to her when she was born in May.

Using bits of fabric I trimmed out the edges of a few Burp Cloths (cloth diapers).

Rattle Mobile
Each of these little animals are little rattles. I have been told that Lizzie just loves looking at them over her changing table. I picked them to match the mural in her room (I painted last Christmas before she was born.) So combining the colors from her room with the colors her parents picked I out all of these things together and I hear they have all turned out to be a hit. A great starting point for more projects.
