I have had so many projects. It is fun but super time consuming. I loved making this scalloped blanket. I got the pattern from a cool book called Bend-the-Rules of Sewing by Amy Carol. Thanks to another blog (thanks April) I saw this super cute floral fabric that can be found at JoAnns. I didn't think you could find anything super cute at JoAnn's so I was very happy. Then I found the orange polka dot from Amy Butler at Material Girls. I know it isn't very baby girlish but I liked it. I just gave it to a darling baby named Ava.
I tried another diaper bag with a few adjustments. I think it still needs a few more tweaks and next I think I just want to try a different shape altogether. But, I loved the texture of this fabric. I gave a friend of mine a diaper bag 3 years ago and she has used to to shreds. I noticed how worn it was the other day so I took her this one. It needed to be updated. The scary thing is that you don't want to impose a diaper bag on someone. Everyone is so particular about what they want to carry around.
The biggest and most stressful project of all is putting on an 8 year old birthday party. Magic themed. The birthday boy insisted that I MAKE magic capes. Who does that? I guess I do. They turned out good after a few tears and some stress. We had 9 crazy boys over and filled 2 hours with magic potions, tricks, games and food. I think everyone was happy. I was worn out.
