For my brother’s upcoming wedding we made some matching table numbers and a sign for the card box. I used the font “Script MT Bold”
Made myself this hat for my upcoming trip to Hawaii! I used the same pattern as before but did something new. When sewing the crown triangular pieces, I sewed 3 together, and then the other 3 together – finally sewing the 2 pieces (made up of 3 triangles each) together. I found this made the top seam look neater.
To match the whale softie I made, I created a card and matching gift bag for Lorenzo’s 1st birthday.
The easiest way to glue on those tiny, thin details is to just use a sticker maker. I have the Xyron one that I bought from Michael’s with a coupon.
This was a very quick and easy project. I got this free pattern from the Birch Fabrics Blog and decided to make one for Lorenzo’s birthday. I chose a Hawaiian print for the body and used a blue minky dot for the belly.
I made the larger sized whale. Only change to the tutorial was that I didn’t bother stuffing the fins.
The shower was a success! Everyone loved the DIY onesie and bib station – one thing I will keep in mind is that I noticed everyone had a tendency to want to add lots of shapes. Many of the designs I envisioned to only have one shape on them (like the bow ties and animals). However, everyone wanted to add a tie, an animal and his name all to a single onesie. I guess not everyone has as good taste as me 😉
The candy bar and drink station were fun. Although we realized adding frozen berries clogged the dispenser later. Note: stick to big chunks of fruit like sliced cucumbers and lemon.
My craft girls and I decided to do a craft swap where we upcycle something from someone else then give it back to them. I got embroidery hoops with fabric in them and decided to turn it into a clock! I bought a cheap clock from Big Lots and then removed it from the base. I then ironed on heat and bond to some fabric and cut out the numbers on my Silhouette Cameo. I then just hot glued the clock mechanism to the back of the fabric.
