Sew Bored

I came across some onesies that my little Catiebug can't wear anymore. The sleeves and width are just fine, its the length that is too small. Her torso has gotten too long for them. So, I came up with a great solution to recycle them into little summer dresses. I am very excited to get more use out of them because some she only wore a couple of times. Check out my pictures. It was really easy to do, and it only took me about 15 minutes.Besides being a little bored today, here are some pictures of projects that have definitely been keeping me busy this past month.
These were gifts for a friend of mine, Melissa. She is expecting her first baby, little Briley, in June. This is a little onesie with 3 different appliques. They have Velcro on the backs so you can change them as often as you like.(Mel loves bumble bees, hence the play on words)
This onesie is my favorite, its called a ruffle bum. The fabric is made to fray in the wash. The more you wash it, the more "ruffly" the bum will get.
Then of course, I had to make her a pettiskirt for newborn pictures. (those are super hard and time consuming!!!) but definitely worth the effort...And last but not least an initial blanket. It just happens to match her baby bedding...
This is an initial blanket and a couple of onesies I made for my cousin's Sister-in-Law. She is also having a new baby, Cohen.

There was also my Easter brunch, which I blogged about in March. I made all of the food, and it was great. Everyone especially loved the ham and potato bake. I will definitely use that recipe again. These were the favors I made for everyone to take home. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of the buffet before it was demolished. Oh well... Maybe next time.

So, its no surprise as to why I have been slacking on my blog lately! ha ha. Well, I hope to get back into the swing of things soon. I promise to try and keep coming up with new blogs and new ideas...
