My crafty side has been ignited again. I've been crafting a lot over the past week and I'm pretty pleased with the results.
bean bags. I'm really happy with how these turned out and I hope that my niece will love them too. I especially love the color combinations on these.
The second is a baby gift for one of my husband's graduate students who just became a dad for the first time. I made burp cloths and an appliqué onesie. Both projects couldn't be easier.
For the burp cloths I simply sewed flannel down the middle of a Gerber organic prefold diaper. Viola! A cute, personal burp cloth that's super absorbent. For the onesie all I needed was a scrap of wonder-under, a scrap of cute fabric and a onesie. Cut the wonder-under into the shape of a heart and iron the rough side to the back of your fabric. Cut the wonder-undered fabric out and peel off the paper on the back of the fabric, iron it on to the onesie and then zig-zag stitch around the outline of the heart to secure it to your onesie.
It took just a couple of hours from start to finish on the baby gifts (the bean bags take a little longer because they're sort of putzy with all the appliqué). All in all, both projects are fun, interesting and very satisfying at the finish.
