Bad lighting, but this is an elastic key fob I made. Since it was my first time trying this craft I don't feel too bad about the crookedness of it.

Sheepy Sack Pattern:
Thursday, February 6, 2014
I modified the pattern to be one piece which makes the sewing go much faster- just 2 layers.
I'm still using her original pattern, but she has since updated it and made it very fancy. These go to a local hospital that serves tiny newborns who are ill. A dear friend of mine is their nurse.
I think sewing these is such a worthwhile cause because parents have such a hard time connecting with their new babies when they are hooked up to machines, under lamps, in incubators, and part of the hospital. These little smocks give these babies an opportunity to get 'dressed' so the parents can see them as little people and hopefully help them to bond. They are made with soft cotton flannel and velcro. They are made with flaps that open completely so they don't interfere with leads, wires, and machines.
A baker's dozen.

I think these little alligator clippies with ribbon on them are so adorable! They are quite addicting to make too. With a little girl who has crazy hair I thought they'd be the perfect solution. Turns out, she doesn't agree. The first batch I made had 24. I actually started to get the hang of it by then.
