Zebra & Pink Ruffle Bum Onesie

I found an old onesie of Hailey I'm sure she wore once or twice before outgrowing :(  :)

Uprecycled/recycled to make a ruffle bum onesie !

Zebra Ruffles & Pink Ruffle on the bum .. Then the special touch, a zebra print heart on the front.

Ruffle Bum Onesie

I found this tutorial on another blog and tonite when cleaning house I found two old onesie's that Hailey has outgrown but yet stain free.

So tomorrow I heat up the new iron I got for christmas and attempt some ruffle onesie's for my Etsy store !

This might be a good way to use up some of my scrap fabric.

Need something crafty to do while I wait for the snow/ice to melt and my minky to arrive to finish a customer's blanket and infant carseat strap covers. 

Now its time to get my 2yr old to bed so I can have a snack (nutty butter bars!)

Busy, Busy, Busy Week

My minky came in last night..So I got the fabric cut out for the blanket and the pillowcase.  Didn't quite have enough minky to make the pillowcase like orginally planned so it now has a zebra stripe down the middle and the stripe will have Darla embroidered on it. 

Ran out to my best friend's house to drop off the material for her to embroidery today.. She sent me a sneak peek photo of the blanket embroidery and it looks TERRIFIC !!!

Hopefully my mom remembers to pick up the satin blanket binding for me today so I can start ruffling the binding tonite to put on the blanket tomorrow. 

The same customer wanted me to make another blanket and pillowcase for christmas. I said it would be a challenge but do it..  I probably should of turned her away, but the extra money sure can help. But unless she pays me today, there is no way I will have time to get it done.

This first set has to be ready buy Friday or Saturday for her to pick up. 

Then I can finish up Hailey's blanket for christmas, and get started on the baby blanket I need to make for the same customer !

Hoping my work pleases her and she will return for future orders !

So I'm busy busy busy..

Hoping last few gifts make it her in time for christmas for my kid and hubby

I have Saturday and Sunday off..  I hope Sunday I can devote to Hailey's blanket.

I  recieved a custom order for a..

Hot Pink Minky Dot & Zebra Blanket
Hot Pink Minky Dot & Zebra Pillowcase
Hot Pink & Minky Dot Ruffle Baby Blanket

The regular blanket and pillowcase are on RUSH once the minky fabric comes in !! No one "close" had the correct shade of Minky so I had to order it via ebay. The seller shipped Priority Mail and hopefully it will be here by Monday. 

The customer needs the blanket and pillowcase before christmas !

My best friend is going to embroidery a name on both for me for a small fee.  Thank you Tonya !  Then I spend the next two days getting the items sewn together. Luckily these will be easy projects so I'm basically waiting on the fabric to arrive. 

These fabric choices are going to make some beautiful projects !
