Baby Crafts!

I thought I'd show you a few things I've been working on lately...

First up?  A Beyonce/Tardis onesie, courtesy of The Bloggess- who I met last week!  She was awesome enough to sign it for me. :)  I used one of those printer-t/shirt transfer things; the ironing was kind of difficult, but I just joked that it looks like it went through Instagram. 

I bought this cute cow flannel years and years ago, with the intention of making it into pyjama pants for a friend of mine.  Now, it is the correct dimensions to use as the perfect swaddling blanket!

I was super proud to get this yard of minky fabric for only $5.  Then I found the super cute rainbow blanket binding for $4.88.  Then, I easily spent 2 hours of frustration, trying to sew on both of these things- it was slippery, and the edge of the minky kept leaving a gap in the binding that really pissed me off.  My secret trick? I ended up ironing some stitch witchery to one side of the binding before trying to pin or sew it; it worked just fine, but I can kind of see it.  It's not the most perfect thing ever, but what girl baby isn't going to like hot pink or rainbows? No one, that's who!  And... it's super soft.

This one was made by my friend, Shelley.  The theme is cats and gardening!  It's clear that she worked much harder on it than I did on mine. :)

And so did my friend Sarah, with this pink/monster/Star Wars quilt.  I am lucky to have such awesome friends!!
