Sewn Baby Toys

Hi friends! 

As I've posted before, it is BABY SEASON! I have yet another baby shower this month and I wanted to make something with my sewing machine. So, as I am no expert, I wanted to start with something fairly small. I made these baby toys from a pattern I found HERE

They came together fairly quickly- about 4 hours start to finish for the 2 of them. I'm sure a more expert sewer (seamstress?) would have been much quicker. But, I'm still pretty happy with the results! My only complaint is that the cheap stuffing I used is lumpy :( 

But they're darn cute and I love the patterns!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Patchwork Birthday Card

Hi All!

Today I made a patchwork birthday card to play along with Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday #159- No-sew quilted cards. I used scratch papers that were from the same pack a while back - sorry I don't have the name. I cut out four patterns in 1" squares, layed out my pattern, took a picture of it, then glued it all down. I used the hexagon die plate to make my background "quilted" pattern on top of the glued down background. Even though it is "quilted", I think that the color scheme is more masculine and I might be able to give it to a male. But, I'll run that by my hubby first :)

Thanks for stopping by!
Paper: kraft card stock, scraps
Stamps: PTI- rosie posie, bountiful banners
Ink: PTI- ocean tides, harvest gold; versamark
Other: generic yellow embossing powder; PTI- heart die border (the opposite edges)
