Little Elephant softie

Amazingly I found 20min to make this cute Elephant softie. Found the cute pattern at birchfabrics.  It went together super fast.  In fact I think stuffing it took longer then sewing it. 

 I love chenille!  Sad that I cannot find it at my local fabric stores anymore.  I have been ordering it online when I need it and its a pain.  However, I love it when I can add something homemade into a gift bag.  

Perfect addition to the little story book, socks and outfit we found.

A twin size quilt

Here the twin size quilt my daughter and I made out of scraps from my scrap bin.  It turned out bright and colorful.  Dropped it off with the little old lady in town and she did the machine quilting for us for only $28.

Halloween Costumes

I did throw together some pieces for costumes this year.  Here is little boy blue.  I only did the overalls.

I only made the tutus for the twincesses.

Only made the cape here for the vampire.

Whipped up the fox shirt and pants and tackled the tail and ears.

Little red riding hood made her own apron.  I made the cape and the dress which I really, seriously slopped through.  The twins just take  up so much of my time I have to really rush through everything else.  

Baby quilts

I have been dabbling around in the quilting world.   Here are the first 2 baby quilts that I made to give away as gifts.  I dropped them off last week to this little lady in town that machine quilted them for me and only charged me $12 per quilt.  Now I just have to get the binding on them.  So excited!

two little white dresses

I totally took the work out of this one...I cheated.  I found this little white dress at Target.  I thought that this dress would make for a perfect blessing dress but I didn't like the pink roses.  I examined them and knew they would be easy to remove.  So I bought two of the dresses for these twin girly's.  

I removed the pink roses and...

Here is what we ended up with.  I added some sequence ribbon and a couple of white flowers to the bodice.

I am loving the results and  it was an inexpensive way to go when needing two little white dresses.  Quick and little work.

Two sweet, lil pink blankies

I made these two sweet blankets for these twin girls we are expecting.  They are just little receiving blankets with soft, creamy pink flannel for the back.  Can't wait to wrap our little girly's in them.

Hungry Bunnys

I made these four Hungry Bunnys for Easter.  The kids loved putting all their treats in them.  I found this cute and free pattern at Lil Blue Boo.  It even has a tutorial to go along with it.  These fun little bunnys are fully lined and go together so fast.

These are pictures before I added the buttons for their eyes.  In fact I never got pictures of them after I added their eyes but oh well.
