See, I'm the bad sister. We take turns posting, and it's my turn to do a few...well see the last post?? Over a week ago! Heather and I are always talking about our blog, what we can post, what we can giveaway, how to get more followers...but execution on all these ideas is just so hard sometimes :)
I guess I can blame some of it on Easter, right? Do you want to hear a tragic story? Well I guess "tragic" in the context of crafting. I have a new sewing machine that has been giving me problems since I began using it in January...it has brought me to tears and cuss words too many times. Well Saturday night, the night before my boy's will make their grand appearance in their Easter outfits, it stops working.
IT WILL NOT SEW, AT ALL.
I was just making hats for them, and I had one loop around to finish my baby boy's hat, I had already finished my older boy's:
Cute hat huh? Wouldn't it have been doubly cute on baby Oliver too? Oh well, I get my machine fixed on Friday.
(by the way, the hat pattern is by Izzy and Ivy designs: Jack n Jill Hat)
On to my next project...so a friend and I are lucky enough to host a project night once a month. We are part of a club for spouses of the school my husband attends...and we have LOTS of fun. It's awesome because we get to decide what projects we do, so we poke all over blogland and Etsy and get to pick from all the adorable projects. I especially like this month since we made fabric flowers. Since I don't have a daughter, yet, I love doing girly things. We found this flower tutorial on Maize in Montana. I love how they turned out, and who doesn't love a fabric covered button:
And the second flower we made I ADORE! They are my new faves. (You can kinda see I'm wearing a GINORMOUS one in my Easter photo). They are cute 5 petal flowers and the tutorial was on Pink Paper Peppermints . I like these so much because they are different than so many of the flowers that I've seen lately. And they are equally cute using different fabrics as they are using the same:
