Bibs

Bibs

Having a toddler means lots of bibs. I started making my own with fun prints and western snaps. This year at the ELF Fair (Dec.1, downtown Carrboro), I’ll be selling my bibs for the first time!

Mini Mobile

The two yellow birds that I made didn’t quite go with my friend’s color scheme. So I made another bird from my favorite Hawaiian fabric to go with them, added two little hearts, and hung them all from a little branch.
Et viola! A mini bird mobile for my baby’s first sleeping/diapering area (in our room). I am not sure what height I want it at yet so the strings aren’t tied off, but you get the idea. I think it goes really well with my vintage sheet curtains and a painting by my Grandma. The painting is supposed to be my mom as a girl.  It used to hang in my room when I was little.   I’ve always loved it.

Little Birds

A friend of mine liked the mobile that I made for my new niece, and asked that I make some birds for her sister’s nursery.  She is going to put the mobile together herself, which i think will add a special touch.  I had the best time making the birds though!
The theme was green and blue, and I love the bright summery feel to the blended fabric patterns.

spring t-shirt dresses

 I always have this huge pile of old t-shirts and other tops that just don’t quite fit with lots of plans about what I am going to do with them.

I am really happy to say that I finally made a few dresses!  These were created by using a top from my pile and the bottom of a t-shirt.

I premiered them at  the OCAM craft market this past weekend. which was tons of fun.
Here are the results.  🙂
