A couple things I have been working on

Amazingly, I have started sewing a couple things around here! We decided to have an open house last weekend, so Friday, I decided to "whip" up some pillow covers. I used this tutorial, (I really wanted to use this one) and some sheets that I had found at the thrift store. I think they turned out pretty nice, and they seem to fit in the living room decently. The kids fight over the blue one... I am not sure why!?
Also, my little niece, Natalie is turning one this next weekend. And I decided to give her a little homemade love... just a little. And it turned out so well, that the kids begged me for one of their own... and I obliged! They are just fantastic, and if they through them at each other, no damage is done! Natalie's I stuffed with cotton balls and a kitty toy (to give it a rattle), and since I ran out of those, I went to Joann's (with all 3 kids, I might add!) and got some Bamboo stuffing. I got the idea here. The kids are using them with Tyler in there games of MONSTER.


And here's just a cute picture... he isn't too happy, but look how big he is! That is a 3-6 month outfit! hahahah! I am so in love with him... and so is the rest of the family!
