Some projects...




So, I finally broke down and bought a pair of fabric scissors. Real fabric scissors, I was using some kindergarten round tip, 5 inch plastic handled scissors that were left behind in my last apartment. Sad, I know. I was working on these burb cloths and nursing pads for myself, when they pretty much broke. I am horrible at doing things for myself, even as I was making these mama/baby items I was contemplating giving them to another pregnant friend of mine! I am going to keep them, since I find the material for both pretty ugly. I made 6 burp clothes and 12 pairs of nursing pads- thats right 24 pads total! I have had the material laying around for over two years now, and just am tired of seeing it. I won't feel bad when the baby spits up all over it then... I used some well worn receiving blankets for inner liners, as well as some receiving blankets from the hospital I was going to return with this baby but know I will be to embarrassed to put them back in the hamper there.


I also finished up a Breakfast food set for my Etsy shop. I originally was going to just add a few pieces of food to some that I had already created to complete a set, but instead made all new pieces becasue I don't think my first items are durable or good enough quality to put in my shop. So, they got added to my toddlers play food instead. I had a huge wave of inspiration this morning for some very unique food items, hopefully pictures will be posted this week!
