What did you do over the 3-day weekend? Oh me? I made crafties…

First, I am going to start off by saying: If this is my friend Nicole, stop right there and go back to looking at cute kitten videos. 🙂

For everybody else, you’re free to snoop around my crafties corner!

Since my friend is expecting her first child this fall, and I need easy projects to build up my sewing skills again…  I used to be so good and then a decade came and went without me even trying so much as a button mend – but it’s just like riding a bicycle, right?  Well, that’s what I keep telling myself.

The past couple of weekends have been spent crafting up a storm, thinking (or finding on Pinterest) ideas for which to create presents for the pending baby shower, and a couple of projects for myself.

Last weekend I made some burp cloths that I thought were too cute, and beyond simple to make!  I think I’m going to go back and sew a quick border edge along the outside to make it a nice clean edge.

This weekend I threw together 3 denim baby bibs (I really want to put a really cute red bow tie applique on these bad boys too!).  And a handy-dandy casserole dish carrier (courtesy of this cool Pinterest find).

 

BTW, if you’re considering becoming a craftie, or already are one but need some guidance on how to be a little more organized…  I highly suggest getting a nice rolling cart with lots of drawers.  My old coworker gave this to me a few months back, and it was sitting in the spare bedroom collecting dust until I cleverly thought of using it for my crafting station.  Can’t turn back now, and I definitely don’t want to!  You can find it on Amazon by searching for a 15 drawer rolling cart – sorry, no links as I’m not getting paid for this 😉

 

I plan on doing some more crafties after work this week, since next weekend is going to be pretty busy (the S.O. comes home from a month-long trip abroad to visit his family).  I’ll post when I have some new items.

Stay crafty my friends 🙂
