DIYS & A VIDEO


I have neglected to show a video of my handsome little man, so here is one from today of him in his combi walker (which we highly suggest). Just cooing/ making random noises for mommy while i'm on the computer. 


A KU onsie w/ tie & suspenders, Chevron burp rag, & elbow patched onsie. For the first one I used a ruler & drew the suspenders & tie then cut out the pattern on the fabric, glued on first with stitch glue & the sewed it on. For the burp rag I used mink fabric on one side & chevron print on the other. I use pins to hold together, ironed the sides over to create a perfect line & sewed. For the last one I bought a onsie & a pack of 2 large iron on patches & cut them to the shape I wanted & ironed on :)


Family Christmas Ornament, I bought a block of wood from Hobby Lobby. Stained the entire block with a staining pen. Put modge podge on the back of the photos & stuck onto the wood. Then I modge podged over the picture & sanded the egdes. For the finishing touches I used a hot glue gun to put some ribbon on & to make a bow. 



This is the back side of the block. I used construction paper, stickers, a stamp, & sharpie. 

                 

I made a chevron blanket :) One side mink & the other chevron just like the burp rags, I followed the same steps just with larger pieces of fabric. 


Fall nails :) All chocolate brown, with a sparkly gold on the ring finger. 



A KU Jayhawk taggie for Matthew. Just used ribbon, & followed the same steps as the burp rags & blanket :)
