In 24 hours (very pic heavy)

I have sewn all this!!!!! Lol

There is a something to be said about insomnia girls!

Here's some things I made for a shower next weekend for a relative. I still have to sew on the canvas tote basket that I'm going to give her to put stuff in (like to keep with the pack n play).

And the rest is for our sweet pea!

Dress for the shower:

Are these the cutest buttons ever:

My fav burpcloth:

TFL! I promise to start posting more scrap stuff soon!

What cute stuff!!!! I have a machine, but I really only use it to make my bows. I really need to start sewing. Everytime I start working on an outfit for Madison, I get distracted and then by the time I get around to finishing it, she has outgrown it, lol. My machine also does embroidery (I have a Pfaff 2144 (I think)), but I really want to be able to do more with it. Do you download fonts online?

I have a few that I have downloaded online but I never use them b/c you have to merge one letter at a time and its hard to line them. I have monogram wizard that someone gave me and I hate it!!! Its about $300 and I NEVER EVER use it!

I use edit/personalize and stitch. I really like it alot, easy to use. I would offer to send you my fonts that I don't use but they are all JEF format. Not sure you could use them?

Wow Kelly!! Those dresses are just so stinking cute I can't stand it. Ryleigh will be the best dressed kid on your block, that's for sure. Gosh I am so happy for you girl!

BTW, love the gifts for Joshua too. I loved each and every gift I got for showers and such, but homemade ones are the BEST!!! You are so sweet and so talented girl.

Those are so cute! Great job! I love the burp cloths! Do you sell them? If not you should totally make an etsy store and sell them!

Oh, thank you Beckie! I'm taking heat for not adding PINK, but I'm standing firm. I have penciled in some poppy flowers that I plan to paint soon. But not pink!! My grandfather raised me and we called him Poppy. I really wanted to name a little girl that at first but DH wouldn't jump on board with it. So, I'm glad to have the flowers in there.

Kaylee- I've made tons of them for friends. They take a while to sew out the designs though. I've been told to sell them but just never have. I have thought about putting some on Etsy, maybe I should reconsider that?

Ashley- we are fortunate in that Mamie is retired (my mom) so she will keep Ryleigh here at home on the days I work. We also have my g'ma, MIL, and neighbor to send in as reinforcements if needed! Teaching is a good career to have b/c we are out so often with breaks and summer and as of now I just can't give that up. It's a part of who I am.

oh hun you have one lucky little daughter on her way to you! What a great Mom you are already proving to be Biggrin It's all terrific the stuff you made but my fave is the little red cowgirl dress. I won't even show it to my sister cuz she's gonna harass you to make her one and she's not even having any more kids any time soon. lol

Would you mind sharing how you make the burp cloths? I am learning to sew, and would like to try to make some. Do you need to have an embroidery machince?

I used an embroidery machine to sew a name/design.

The only suggestions I have without one is cross stitch a name, an iron on design, or if you have a cricut check out their board. There are lots of post lately about fabric paint and freezer paper. That you could do for sure and it seems fairly simple.

The borders are ribbon. Grograin(sp?) ribbon works the best. Just fold the edge under and pin it across and then sew as close to the edge as you can. Viola!

Oh, and I buy the diapers at Target or wal-mart. They also make colored ones. I have some blue and green and they also make pink and purple.

You are so talented! not only are you an amazing scrapbooker/paper crafter, but you are a very talented seamstress! Wow, those dresses are the CUTEST!! You picked the cutest fabric EVER and I love the embroidery.

Your friend is going to be thrilled with the personalized stuff for Joshua too. One of my friends gave me some personalized towels for Kayson and that was one of the best things we received...it meant so much that they were "made for him".

oh, I love it all!!!! that's so cool that you have an embriodery machine. I really love all of the stuff you made, I can't pick a favorite.

offhand, I really love the dress - do you know if there's a free pattern for one in size 6? Wink Jordan has been asking me to sew her a dress, and I want to find an easy one to make her.

Kelly, everything is amazing. My favorite dress is the cow dress, but being from Wisconsin I'm sort of partial to cows!

I love the burb clothes and wish I would have known about cloth diapers earlier.

I wish I had an embroidery machine. I have this cute denim dress with embroidered butterflies on it. My 2nd time wearing it I got into dh's car and something sharp was poking out of the seat. It put 2 holes near the butt:( I would love to put a couple butterflies (or one big one?) to cover the holes. Anyway, that would be neat for patching holes on kids clothes as well.
