I cant tell you how many times I have heard the words " You are such a Martha Stewart" (haha) I just love crafting, diy, painting, sewing, and home decorating. It gives me great satisfaction to look around my house and say " I MADE THAT!"

A Little Lace for a Lil Lady

     * OK, so can I start out by saying WOW!!!! WE reached 50,000 page views in 3 1/2 months!!!! I am so happy I could just BURST, really! What a huge blessing it is to be able to share with you my projects. The love and encouragement I receive through this blog is unmeasurable!!! I LOVE each and everyone of my *223 followers*! Thank You.



   I am sure you guys are like... another BABY GIFT POST!!! haha I told you we had a ton of pregnant ladies in my church. :) Well This gift is for a sweet friend of mine Ying and her husband Lue, who is Greg's new golfing buddy. Pray for me GOLF is an expensive sport! LOL Their sweet little girl Lilyanna Yang is due next month, and her shower was this past week. I wanted to get away from all the pink with this gift, so here is a purple and lace themed gift set.

  I started off by making this cute headband. When the other mothers saw it, I knew I would be making a few more of these beauties for their cuties! I think Abby's would look super cute in one too... ummm I am just adding to my already long list of projects. :)

  Next I made a tutu with the same frayed flower and covered button, but I added lace around the edge as a finishing touch. Can I just say LACE is awesome!!! It added so much character to this tiny little tutu! Want to make your own... just follow my tutorial here.  I use ribbon for newborns, so they can be tied loosely around the baby's tummy. I sized mine by matching it up to one of Abby's old newborn skirts.

 Personalized burp cloths are my favorite gift to make! Because they are so EASY! You can get a pack of 12 for $6! I like to give sets of three, two solid and one personalized.  Cut out a rectangle 1/4 inch larger than the center of the burp cloth. Press sides under, pin, and stitch on to burp cloth. Easy Peasy!

  I had a ton of material left over so I made up a little Rag Doll too. Abby was convinced it was for her! So you know what I am doing this week... Making a larger Rag Doll with interchangeable clothing for her. Cole wanted a monster, so I am making him a Brobee Doll from Yo Gabba Gabba. :D

  Here it is boxed and ready to go! :D

  1. OMGoodness I LOVE the little ballet flats and that tutu is too too cute!! The rag doll is precious too. I am making monkey themed bedding for a friends baby and I planned on making a little monkey taggie for him. This rag doll is definitely going to be a go to baby gift in all my baby baskets from now on :) I also told my friend about your blog and showed her your page, she was very impressed and asked me to email her your link!! She will be your newest follower :) Keep the great idea coming.

  6. Where do you find the cloth diapers for $6? I make gift sets similar to yours for the pregnant ladies at church. Well, I say similar...I make burp cloths, pacifier clips, bibs, and blankets. I've not ventured into anything that is not square or rectangle. I'm still an amateur with the sewing machine. I really would like to know where you find the cloth diapers that cheap. I find the Gerber 3 ply at Walmart for a 10 pack it is $13.
