The crafty floodgates have now opened on new girl baby things! I’ve been experimenting with making appliques using my embroidery machine. This is for Baby #3 to wear in the hospital, announcing her name. (Novema is my grandmother’s name.)
And because none of the store-bought Baby’s First Halloween stuff involves identifying the small person as a witch. 🙂
Taken from the states and capitols fabric of the bag I recently made.
A store-bought skirt paired with a t-shirt made from Moda Glamping Tents And Trailers Honey Bee fabric, which will be also featured in some upcoming girly projects I’ve got in mind.
And a little dress/jumper with matching shoes. Since she’ll be an October baby this dress will be worn in the winter over a layer of warm knits. I used McCall’s M4421 for the dress and the Cameron baby sneakers pattern from I Think Sew for the booties.
I’m afraid I haven’t done a single thing crafty or blog-worthy (with the possible exception of some newly invented cookies, but I forgot to photograph them so what’s the point?), but I’m posting anyway because Worth doesn’t feel well and won’t get off my lap, and if I’m going to sit here captive I may as well do something. So here is a random post about things that have been going on! The neighborhood kids had lemonade stand in my front yard. Unfortunately their accounting was almost as bad as their spelling, so it is unclear if the enterprise earned money or just annoyed the neighbors.
Worth got his first favorite pair of shoes. He tried these on at an outlet mall on the way home from an out-of-town wedding last weekend and we couldn’t even pry them off his feet to pay for them so we just snipped off the tags and he wore them home. He kept cooing over them and touching them and giggling in his car seat. Hilarious and cute. I love that we finally found shoes he’ll actually keep on, plus they are mercifully easy to clean. The adorable t-shirt was a gift and I love it like he loves his shoes.
This was a picture that appeared on my blog back in June of Belle on her homemade dog bed…
and an updated snapshot, two months later. I’m glad kids don’t grow that fast! (And a disclaimer, Belle is not allowed to play with the kids’ toys ordinarily, but she has a deep and abiding fondness for this little knitted animal. She doesn’t eat it–she just plays with it and loves on it and since it seems to be no worse for wear as a shared toy I allow it. She’s just a baby too, after all, even though she’s more than doubled in size!)
