Diapering for Dollies…

I found this pattern for diapers for dolls on the Skip to my Lou blog a few months ago and thought it was a cute idea. So after Lorelei went to bed on Saturday I made a couple up for her. She is so in to taking care of her baby doll right now. She wraps her up in her blanket, takes her for rides in the stroller, feeds her cookies and milk :) So now she can change her diaper. Well lets rephrase that she can take it off and ask us to put it back on. Little girls are so much fun!

This was a super quick and easy project! The only thing I changed in the pattern was I put a long piece of velcro along the front so it can fit different sizes of dolls.


Just a little bunny rattle…

I just finished up a bunny rattle for someone as a baby gift. I think that it turned out darling! I put a little bell inside so it jingles a little :)


Yet another project to do one day…

I couldn’t help myself. I saw the words sale. I saw the cutest fabric that would make the cutest quilt so what did I do? I bought the LOVE U by Deb Strain charm pack to make a baby quilt with. Yes you might think Samantha you are not having a baby nor are you pregnant but one day it will happen again and when it does I will have the cutest tummy time quilt to make :)  I think it will be so bright and cheerful!

Love U Charm Pack Deb Strain for Moda Fabrics

I was thinking about this pattern found on Sew, Mama, Sew 


So I have to blame Diana for my latest obsession. I hadn’t really thought about aprons as being cute. Then I started looking at the oh so many cute aprons there are. Needless to say I ended up buying a pattern and some fabric. Soon I will have a oh so cute apron! I am excited about finally making myself something :) I am just going to have to wait for some of my supplies to arrive from etsy  :(

Here is a peek of what I am putting together! And maybe I will have enough to make a little one for Lorelei to match :)

Easter Bunny…

I finally was able to get a picture of the bunny that I made for Lorelei for Easter. I was hoping to make a skirt for it but ran out of time. I love how the colors worked together!

I followed this tutorial  which was pretty straight forward. I only struggled a few times when I had to sew around it while the arms and legs were inside. I think that it would be easier if it were a little bigger, I actually did cut it a half an inch bigger than the pattern.
