Well, I haven't had time this week yet to work on anything new, so I'll do another flashback post since I've been planning on posting these anyway. I just became an aunt a little over a month ago when my awesome sister, Missie, had her first baby girl Cecilia Ruth. I, of course, wanted to make some things for my new niece. : )
One of the things I made were these adorable felt baby booties. I found the pattern over at favecrafts.com and they're pretty simple but really cute. Now we just have to wait for her to grow enough to fit into them!
|The turtle pattern wasn't on the site - I just made it up myself.|
Another thing I made was this stuffed elephant. I used Simplicity pattern number 2613.
Isn't he cute? The fabric matches a giraffe I made from this same pattern for her cousin Sofia last year. I hadn't really made any stuffed animals before that (besides a sock money I made when I was nine) but it's actually pretty fun and they're a lot easier than I thought they would be.
I also made her a quilt out of Missie's old baby blankets and sheets from when she was a kid, which turned out pretty well. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of that to post right now. Maybe another time!
Well, that's all I have for now. I will post some current projects soon since I will have more time this weekend to work on things.
