Recently my mom informed me that we will be invited to a baby shower soon. This is no surprise to me as my mom comes from a family of sixteen children and I have 63 cousins (last time I counted). So there is always a wedding or shower to attend.
I guess I'm a bit behind in the times but I don't Twitter or Tweet or do Facebook but I do look at Pinterest and I am addicted! Recently I found several small projects that I HAD to try. Actually, I'm not really a sewer so this was a bit of a stretch for me. (Paper crafting is more up my alley....)
My project started out with a simple bib pattern that I found posted by Amy Friend on her site - (www.duringquiettime.blogspot.com). Some monkey fabric caught my attention at JoAnn Fabrics and I raced home with a yard to start (believe me I've been to JoAnn's a NUMBER of times since then, purchasing MORE of the same as it turned out so cute!) The gal at the cutting counter had to ask what I was making as I kept buying SMALL amounts of this cute fabric. Little did I know I was HOOKED on this little sewing frensy I was on...LOL!
www.weallsew.com by Ashley Johnston. A side trip to our local Wal-Mart included a set of pacifiers to go with it all:)
(Sorry for the lousy photos. One picture was taken with my camera, the other with my i-phone. The fabric looks like a different color on the pacifier pocket, but it's the same. )
What started out as a whim turned into EIGHT sets! I guess I'll be ready for all the babies showing up in the family now. Thank you Amy, Michelle and Ashley for the great patterns that even someone who's not a sewer can deal with. Like they say, 'One thing leads to another...and another....and another!" Now I need to create a card to go with it all. Now if only I could give up sleeping.....Have a good rest of the week everyone and thanks for stopping by:)
