Baby Crafts

Okay, these were fun:

December 18

I’m not sure what happened to me this month: very few on the Christmas photos, way too many on the craft ones. Sorry if your eyes have totally rolled to the back of your head this month while I get all the sewing out of my system. It will all come to a screeching halt very soon. It has to: we’re leaving on Saturday and I’m not hauling the sewing machine to Oklahoma, so that’s that.

Anyway, the above items (which I’m totally gaga over right now) are a long overdue baby gift for some friends of ours who, ahem, will probably see this post tonight, but I couldn’t help myself. I had to take a photo and post it. I think they are so cute.

So, Ed and Marcie, if your sweet girls have something like this already, maybe just don’t tell me, m’kay?

Happy Twins!

    *giggle* I think you’re thinking of “Calamity Jane” (though I had to google it to figure that out). The musical Oklahoma goes more like this, “O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-klahoma where the wind comes sweepin’ down the plain…”
    It didn’t take long to sew the ribbons on. Longer to select them and pin them on, but overall, a fast project.
    However, having said that, I’m not making these a habit. They are fun on occasion and I want them to still be fun when I need another simple baby gift to give. They will not turn into the tea-wallets for babies that took over most of my December. Ahem.
    I’m finishing up the jammies for the girls and then plan to switch off the machine. I need a break from it now.

    What a lovely idea! How long did it take to sew all those bits of ribbon around the edges?
    I think Becky is the best, too.
    Have a lovely time in Oklahoma. I’ve only ever seen a musical by that name. Is that the one with “Take me back to the black hills, the black hills of Dakota”, or is that a different musical all together? (I guess you can see I’m not American).

    Megan: Off topic! I made your best sugar cookies ever again (one batch with lemon and one with vanilla instead of almond). They are amazing!”Where did you get this recipe?” asked my husband. Imagine trying to explain your blog to my left wing, tree-hugging husband (key words: good writer, homeschooler, craft designer, mother of four, husband in seminary, honest struggler with this motherhood/life gig). “She sure has a good cookie recipe!” he said.
