Sick Sick Sick!!

The title says it all. We have been fighting colds, coughs, and ear infections around here for weeks! It is hard to find energy to create anything when everyone is sick, but I've managed a few projects this month.

I found a tutorial online for creating the flowery piece on this headband (can't remember where!). For my headbands, I used little girls tights, then just sew them together to fit Mallory's head. Then I added the flower on the seam. I really like the way it turned out, so I decided to make a matching shirt for Valentine's Day.

This week I finished up a LONG overdue baby gift: 2 burp clothes with matching bibs, and a diaper/wipes case with built in changing pad. I followed the tutorial on, but added a handle and snaps to close. I made one for myself before Mallory was born, but didn't add a handle, and I always thought it would be nice to have. This is a great thing for all new moms to have - this way I don't have to lug the whole diaper bag into the bathroom if we are all out at a restaurant or something. I love it and I hope my friend does too!

I have been crocheting quite a bit lately, and have finished several more hats & shoes.  I will be back to share later!
