Baby girl Taggie Blankets

It was so much fun to make some girl themed taggie blankets! I have been making a lot of taggies lately and they have been mostly blue with sports and animal ribbons which have turned out so cute but I was ready for some pink, purple, butterflies, flip flops and of course some adorable monkeys! :)

Personalized baby gift

I made this taggie blanket for a friend who just had her 6 little boy! I love to give personalized gifts especially when thay have plenty of baby essentials. It's just that extra touch to show them how much they are loved and thought of.

Monogrammed little bag and key fob set

I am thrilled with how this set turned out! 
I love the pink chevron and how the kelly green letters make it pop!
The key fob is perfect to help me keep track of my keys and the little bag can hold my phone 
and has inside pockets for my credit cards.

Corn Hole bags

I had a friend ask me if I could make a set of corn hole bags to go with a board they were making. I was excited to try this new project and had fun researching the official weight and sizes they were supposed to be. I used this great tutorial and am so happy with how they turned out.

Due in...Shirts for my sisters

One of my sisters saw this super cute shirt and thought we could make some. She bought two shirts. I had a friend help me cut out stencils with her Silhouette and then I hand painted them, let them dry 
and then heat seal them in the dryer on high for 15 minutes. 
I am so glad they love them and they look so cute wearing them! 

 I thought  the baby feet would look so cute on a onesie, too!

Silent Auction Basket

I had so much fun making this basket to donate to Sycamore Creek 
Elementary School's carnival for their silent auction on May 17th. They asked me to make a gender neutral basket to reach the biggest audience. I thought owls would be perfect! I went with brown as the main color and light green, yellow and bright green as the accent colors. I love how it turned out! One of my favorite things is to pick a theme and then design a whole coordinating set around that theme! The set included a changing pad, embroidered onesie and burp cloth, key fob and cute owl earrings.
