One of the first projects on my list was:
Last year I decided that I always wanted at least one of my kids gifts to be handmade. I know they won't appreciate it at this age, or any age for that matter, but for my own sake I wanted to start getting into that habit. What better way to accomplish that than by making them some fun little jammies that they can open the night before Christmas (a family tradition of mine growing up).Lucky for me I was able to find all of the flannel for their pajama bottoms on sale and the tops where only $3.50 a piece at Walmart. SCORE!! I wanted the tops to coordinate with the bottoms, so I decided to embellish them using some good ol' Heat n' Bond. I was able to use the larger flower from the greenish flannel print and the other little flowers where from some scrap fabric that I had on hand.
Next on the list:
Burp ClothsActually these were never on my list to begin with., but I had some flannel to spare and this was the only practical project I could come up with. Plus, I only have one that is this style and size and it's my husband's favorite to use. So, I decided to make a few extra just for him.
I didn't have enough ric-rac to go all the way around these two, and since I wasn't about to fun to the store fro some I just added two little strips on the top and bottom. Simple, but effective.
This piece of flannel came from my first pair of botched pajama bottoms. I don't like to use patterns and sometimes I suffer the consequences of that. However, I was really excited to have the chance to make some new burp cloths for our up and coming little lady. Lemons out of lemonade folks!
Stay tuned for more projects that are slowly coming off of my Christmas and pre-baby to do lists.
