New Year, New Babies, New Crafts

Hi Laura!
Happy New Year to you too! I love your repurposed leggins. They are super cute on V- and earth friendly to boot!

I hope to post more in the 2011 too! I think there will be A LOT of baby items, as I currently have 10 pregnant friends! I got my very own little camera for Christmas from my hubby so the posts should be more frequent. But before moving forward into crafting for 2011, I have to recap the latter part of 2010.

Since the begining of December 2 babies have joined us, AND my mom, sisters and I hosted a shower for my cousin who is due anytime now!

My friend Cecili, welcomed Catherine early this December. Cecili is an Air Force Major, so camo is more her scene then pink flowers and bows. So I whipped up a few pink things for her little girl.

This blanket, one yard of fleece cotton and one yard regular cotton. One side girly, one side not too much :)

I also gave her one of each of these burp clothes. So fast and fun to make. Prefolded cloth diaper and a scrap big enough to fit down the center, with a zig zag stich all around. I love it! The other two went to my cousin, Heather. More about her gifts below.

I gave Cecili two of these animal burp clothes, the other two went to my friend Melina who welcomed Canyon on Dec 23rd.

I LOVE these cupcake hats! I gave Cecili the yellow one (just a little girly) and Heather the pink one (a lot girly).
I have to admit I went a little over board with my cousins fall themed shower. If I could have done more I would have! So in addition to the 4 sewen burp cloths and pink cupcake hat from above, I also made her bibs with appliques.

And a basket weave blanket WITH ruffles in Ravens purple!

For her shower I painted up these mini clothes pins for the "Don't Say Baby Game". They are pink and orange with poka dots!!!!

My sister Emily and I made these

And I made this... diaper wreath. It's WAY easier than a diaper cake and a lot cheaper!

Also this fall, my friend Susan at work got engaged and married. This towel with scrubbies was her bridal shower gift.

And of course a little charity is needed this time of year. My sister E and I picked names for kids from a local Baltimore elementry school and made them hats per their request. It was fun! Thank you Lovely Yarns!

And finally! This little sweater was made for Megans 1st birthday out of the same yarn from her baby blanket. I guess I buy too much yarn! Oh well! I also get too may speeding tickets!
Well, thats a post to make up for all posts! I still have a few Christmas gifts to post, but since they have not all been given out yet that post will have to wait.
Happy 2011!
