The pictures tell this one. I LOVE how it turned out!!

Three new covers. These go together faster than the CT diapers. They don't use billions of snaps. They go great with prefolds. Haven't had any leaks yet. Easy for dad to use too! They are great so far. I've got a couple more cut out and ready to snap. I will then start on the size larges of these so I will have them ready- these are mediums. Get this-from a free pattern! They are called Tighty Whitey Hipsters.

Just another little diaper. Would you believe I have another dozen or so half-sewn? I'm slowly getting through them. Although, I did find new homes for the girly ones that were unfinished.

Some fun button hair ties. There were buttons on clearance at a local craft store for a quarter a pair. Hopefully, this doesn't mean they won't be stocking adorable buttons anymore. These are the ones with a shank so you can loop it through the ponyholder. Easy to make and they never come apart.

It's been a while...this soaker is made from a brown tweedy yarn from knitpicks. It has a variegated strand running through the yarn. Much prettier in person, and more boyish that what we have already knitted up here. Can you believe he was down to only one fitting soaker!? As if I've not made enough of them!

Side note: Have you tried the coconut M&M's? I'm not usually a fan of m's in general, but those coconut ones are amazing!!

A half-circle skirt inspired by a recent series on ikatbag.blogspot.com. She has a great site! I think the recipient may actually wear this style!
Another half-circle skirt. These are so fun and use up small less than a yard pieces of fabric! I can even use the smallest scraps to applique a shirt to match-if I get spunky.

A fun sea star craft. Actually, it had nothing to do with the science behind sea stars, I was just looking for an excuse to craft. A bit of wonder-under and some fun prints of fabrics. Then, the basket on the right shows that you can take this one with you and show 15 of your young friends too!

What a chubby! This outfit was a gift from someone who found it at a second hand store. I love it! Notice it is 'signed' by KAT. If you know this artist, and they may live near me, I'd love to learn to make more of these awesome onsies! Thanks Rachel!

A tray of 'cookies'. These are made from those beads that you place on little pegs, then melt them with an iron. We found that we like them really flattened/melted rather than slightly melted. Not all pictured, Abigail was creative and made the word 'love' in a heart shape.

A fun treat for the fourth! Red strawberries, blue blueberries, and white whipped topping. Fun and yummy too!

Cute, quick baby shower game. The invitations were in the shape of a onsie, the cake was in the shape of a onsie. We cut out these onsie shapes from blue card stock, handed them to each guest (even childless guests), and asked for a bit of parenting advice for the new parents. They were strung on the wall between some balloons like a clothesline. I didn't get to read them all, but the ones I did were pretty good!

These cuties were ironed onto an amazing t-shirt that my cousin made for our grandma. All families and kids were included, and each person signed with a fabric marker. The shirt was covered to the sleeves! Since our baby can't write his name yet, we used screen printing ink on his foot.

With very little notice before moving into a house with no washing machine, I whipped 9 diapers up to make sure we had an extra days supply. I have also recently discovered, and confirmed with another mom of boys, that this diaper pattern works best for girls. Well, let the fun of finding a new great pattern begin! Oh the possibilities...

Quick baby shower gift. One of those minkee backed flannel patchwork blankies that I made a couple of just for these occasions. Also, a bib with a pocket backed with baby terry. I threw in a couple of spoons to show off the pocket and add to the gift. I love wrapping baby gifts in just tulle- makes a fluffy cute gift. I will post a couple more pics of the shower when I find them...
