Mother's day card

I wanted to make a mother's day card, and I saw this cute idea over on the silhouette blog!

And you know how much I love my silhouette, and I use it every chance I can get!

I love how it turned out!

The only thing I did different is I filled in some of the design.
I really like how it made it pop!


Mother's day subway art

I actually made this last year....for myself...because lets face it, my husband is never going to do something like this!

Plus, a mother has got to toot her own horn once in awhile!!

So, anyway, I have searched and searched and can't find the subway art that I used last year, but I did find a printable for another one that is equally as good!!!

So don't hate me, I really did try to find it, and if by chance the person who did this darling printable is reading this blog, let me know and the credit is yours!!!
Here is the free printable for Mother's day subway art!

Anyway, it was super easy!

All I did was added scrapbook paper, ribbon and a fabric flower! You could just put it in a frame also!


Baby bib and burp cloth

My sister in law had a baby boy, and I wanted to make her some bibs and burp cloths.

One thing I hate about burp cloths, is that it seams like the spit up doesn't absorb into the fabric very good.

So I wanted to add terry cloth to one side of it.

I bought a white towel at Ross, and was able to make several out of it.

I used one that I already had as a pattern

Now I have two pieces of fabric cut out

Then turn the fabrics right sides together and sew all the way around, leaving an opening on one end...a couple of inches open.

Now sew up the opening and I actually sewed all the way around it, about 1/2 inch in.
Just to make sure it doesn't go anywhere!

Ta-Da! Super easy!!

Now for the burp cloth!

I used one already that I had for a pattern

Now you have the front and back

Now, I really wanted to make this easy on me, so I just placed the two pieces together, WRONG sides together. So, you don't have to turn this inside out.

I just sewed all the way around, leaving about 3/4 inch, so I could make it into a rag big.

I added my velcro!

Then just take your scissors and clip little slits all the way around, making sure you don't clip too close to your stitches. Then I threw it in the wash to give it a nice rag look!

That is all....so fast and simple and makes a super great baby shower gift!
