A Gift to My Wilderness Loving Husband

I really wanted to give my husband something that would remind him of the fun times he has during his camping trips. I needed it so be something small enough to put on his desk and of course masculine..I decided to head to Michaels and see if I can find some inspiration...and sure enough I spotted these tiny canvases on sale and Ureka, I came up with this... he loved it and so did I...

Happy New Year Everyone!

Well I can't believe that 2011 is over, it has gone by so fast! I certainly am enjoying the time off and some of my gifts!! One gift in particular has inspired this post. My wonderful sis gave me two sewing books; One Yard Wonders and SEW UI am self taught and these two books have really improved my sewing. They are so easy to read and simple enough for a beginner to understand. I highly recommend these books for anyone interested in sewing and doesn't like big complicated dictionary like books!

Here are some of the finished products...

This adorable set comes with a baby poncho 0-3/4 months, a burp cloth, and a matching big. Its made out of felt so its really soft and comfy. I especially like the wide sleeves for baby's added comfort.

Diaper on the Go bag. Very simple to make and comes in handy when running a small errand and don't need to carry everything in the diaper bag.
