Baby Diaper Wreath

I recently tried my hand at making a diaper wreath as a baby shower gift for a lovely young lady at church.

I began with a cross-stitch hoop for my form. I wrapped the diapers around the hoop and tied them with tulle. 

I then added a selection of small items. I used a travel bathing set. 

I secured these items with rubber bands all around the wreath. 

Finally, I added some "lollipops" made from baby wash rags and spoons. 

I think the final product turned out well and was well received.

Layered T-shirt maxi skirt

So I've noticed that these maxi skirts are kind of popular... I tried my hand at my own version. I found three old t-shirts to cut up and this is my final product.

New shoes!

The girls enjoyed making shoes for their dolls tonight. Thanks to You Tube and Pinterest for inspiration.

Father's Day

This is my version of a Pinterest gift I found last year that I wanted to make for my Dad.  I finally got it done and gave it to him for Father's day.  If I could do it again, I would have been more careful about the kids all wearing a light colored shirt.  (I'm no photographer, obviously.)
