I've decided to shut down this blog.  There's not really a reason why I can't post my crafty projects on my regular blog and it would simplify a lot of things for me.  Check here on Sunday for the drama of ruffle pants for Tillie.

All of my posts have been imported to Lullaby and Goodnight as well.  They're all under the label "crafty projects".

Grain and Gusset Popover Pinafore.

I got this pattern/tutorial earlier this spring.  I hadn't got a chance to use it until now.  This is a great tutorial.  It's super-easy to follow and just makes sense.  Plus, it's adorable.

Oh, what was that?  You need pictures as proof?  Well, I've got them.  I got Tillie all dressed up in it and then realized the good camera was still at Camp.  KodakEasyShare pictures it is!

I wish I hadn't cut her hair off in this picture.
And best of all, it's reversible.

Christmas in July! (or August...)

At Camp we have a Christmas in July homemade gift exchange.  I decided to make my recipient a bag.  After perusing Etsy for patterns, I decided on the June Bag from MayAndMae.  The pattern was a little more difficult and involved than I was planning on, but it's a darling little bag.  I'm kind of sad I couldn't keep it.

I used fusible fleece and I made a button hole!  Yay for learning new things!

It even has a back pocket.

I love long straps on bags.

The best part about sewing projects is picking out the fabric.

Sweet Bird.

My cousin had a custom order for a baby gift for a friend.  I'm actually sad I had to give this away.  It was too cute!

Tim drew the bird for me, and I'm pretty sure I'll be making one for Tillie soon!  I love the little ricrac legs. I added Fray Check to the ends after I took this picture.

I couldn't make my normal skirt since it was for a 0-3 month size.  My first attempt actually fit Tillie's Bitty Baby.

Last week after Tillie's birthday party, I added pictures of her outfit to the Crap I've Made Flickr group.  Much to my surprise, it was featured on her blog today!

What a wonderful birthday surprise!

Birthday Bloomers

She's not one yet, but her party was today.
I made her a "1" onesies, bloomers, a fabric covered party hat and a clippie.

These were my second pair of bloomers, but they still weren't as big as I was planning.  She had to wear a disposable diaper for them to fit.
The best part about having a party a week early is that she gets to wear it again next week Friday!
