First up. . .
a custom teapot trivet for a sweet customer. . .
back... love this embroidered linen fabric!
This teapot trivet was made from designer, new and reclaimed fabrics in a very specific palette that complemented my customer's beautiful teapot and living room. (She loved the trivet, btw!) Want one in your own colors, fabrics and prints? Don't forget that I have the tutorial and free pattern, here on my blog, just for you!
And (of course) baby onesies. . .
top onesies -- rough applique and machine stitching
bottom left -- rough applique and a handmade ruffle
bottom right -- acrylic paint and a singed flower
And they're GIRL onesies, too! These were so much fun to make for my lovely cousin's baby (due to arrive any day now. YAY!) There's also a tutorial on my blog for the singed flower I used on the bottom right onesie. You can find it HERE. I've thought about making some tutorials for the onesies I make, and with so many great tutorials already available on the web, I'm not sure there would really be a need. What do you think?
For my own little Monkey. . .
a travel diaper and wipes pouch!
This was one of those last-minute, created-only-because-of-sheer-necessity projects. One Sunday, I had dropped Donovan off at our church nursery, and the workers asked if I had a diaper bag to leave with them. Ummm. No, actually. *so embarrassing!*
The next Sunday rolls around, and while everyone's scrambling around, getting ready for Mass, I remembered that I still had no diaper bag to leave with Donovan in the nursery. I HAD to make something!! Of course, starting work on a make-do little pouch like this a mere two hours before Mass was not the best idea I've ever had, but I did finish on time, and the pouch has worked out perfectly. Donovan, however, made the saddest face in the whole universe when I dropped him off at the nursery that Sunday morning, and had the biggest, saddest, tear-filled eyes when I picked him up. Soooo. . . he hasn't been back. My mama-heart can't handle it! But at least I have a spiffy new diaper and wipes pouch I can tote with me wherever I go. :) Like the park. . .
That's it for my show-and-tell today. What have you been making? I'd love to see! Leave a link in the comments below if you'd like to share your latest project.
See you soon!
