Ruffle Butts

I went to baby shower the other week and was inspired to make ruffle butt onsies out of some scraps for part of the gift. It turned out really cute. I sure do wish I had some pinking sheers because I am not a fan of how much they shrunk after I washed them. I did a couple of cute ruffles in the front too but didn't get a good picture of it.

The Finished Product

The moment many of you have been waiting for has finally arrived! We are done! Levi did most of the work but I did the finishing touches and was the manager. We did it together and we have decided not to ever do anything like this again. It turned out way cute and I can't wait to start using it to store my sewing goods and for other uses over the years. A big thanks to my friend Julie for all the advice and the use of her sander. Without her this couldn't have been done, THANKS JULIE! The contrast between the before and after pictures is stunning so please enjoy. Also, if any of you are in need of black paint let us know, we bought way too much and opened both cans...oops.




Church Tote

I have been wanting to make Clark a church tote for all his quiet things for a while and finally did it! I love it and it has worked out great for church. I messed up on the straps, which means they probably won't last as long as they could last but I will fix that when I have to. He did the art work and I traced it on the fabric and carefully sewed it on the pocket. It wasn't my idea but it turned out great after I made it a bit larger then called for.

Crib Activity Quilt

I recently(within the last month or so) finished a quilt for a friend. It was a love/hate relationship with quilting as usual but I got through. It became more of an activity quilt since the batting was a bit thick and it had lots of textures and I tied it. It is way cute and my friend loved it so I guess that should make it worth it. Also, here is a sneak peak of the dresser we have been working on and finally finished. (Post coming soon)
