Newborn Pants

I've been trying to get ready for this 3rd little baby to come. You know, buying diaper, washing clothes.... WAIT! With this baby's gender being a surprise I need at least a handful of gender-nutral outfits to get him/her started. Only, with all the hand-me-downs from an older brother and sister I only found ONE little sleeper that would work. 

Time to get to work. I had a couple white long-sleeve onsies and piece of yellow and white striped knit, so a couple pairs of pants were in order. I whipped these babies up in no time and now we're good to go!
I made the baby pants the same way I made these little leggings. (Only I traced another pair of baby pants, not leggings, to create the pattenr, obviously.)

Just wait and see what I put WITH the onsies and pants to top it all off! 
You'll have to come back to check it out.

Snap Bibs Giveaway!

I am so excited to share our first give-away for our "Little Ones" series!!!
Why? you might ask. Because it's pure and simple genius! 
These AMAZING snap bibs are made by Katie Lewis from the Red Kitchen

Aren't they great??

Snap bibs are made of thick vinyl and have a heavy duty snap. 
The vinyl easily rinses off in the sink or with a damp cloth atfer a messy meal. No need to throw in the washing machine! The heavy snap also makes it difficult for kids to take the bib off themselves... poor kids, happy moms. And besides being so practical, they're completely adorable. Just look at all these Yummy Colors!
If that's not enough, she even has some with sparkles!

You can check out all the fun options HERE!

Now, want to win one?
Just enter here!

Jungle Vines Nursery Mural

Check out this fun Jungle theme mural! 

We already shared with you the cute fabric applique art that Lisa made to go in her baby boys nursery, so we might as well share what else she did to add the finishing touch to the room. 
I think these over-sized vines add just the right amount of fun. 

Before Lisa had her baby, but after my mom had arrived in town to help on the special occasion, they called me up with an idea. They needed a project to keep them busy so they didn't go crazy waiting for the little guy to come, and had decided to paint a mural... but couldn't quite find what they wanted. (This is when I usually get a call from my mom saying, "Hello my artist daughter," and I know she's going to put me to work!).

 My instructions were... Jungle theme. Plants, vines, green... and most importantly, not too hard. They needed to be able to finish it in a day in case the baby came.
 I whipped up a quick sketch with a few instructions, sent it their way, and they got to work! And I think they did a fabulous job too (and yes, they finished in plenty of time).
So thanks again Lisa (and Mom) for sharing your great project!

The Plush Plum

We are so luck to have Lani from The Plush Plum visiting our blog today! She makes the most huggable, lovable, adorable... and did I mention customizable dolls and animals. 
You can find her HERE on facebook!

Hi, I'm Lani, creator of adorable, huggable little friends at The Plush Plum! All my life I have been fascinated by dolls, stuffed animals and miniatures. I have been sewing for roughly two years. The first year I spent most of my time learning how to sew and making odds and ends. But  nothing really popped out at me or made me want to continue making the same thing over and over. Then, one day I made a stuffed animal for a swap group and was instantly hooked. Next I tried my hand at a doll. I was completely hooked after that. I had finally discovered that my true passion lies in making stuffed dolls and animals, for children and adults alike, to love and cherish. That is when the birth of The Plush Plum came about. I created and opened my business in July of 2013. Not only do I create one-of-a-kind, ready to sell dolls, but my customers can also choose from a huge variety of  fabrics - prints, solids, and a rainbow (and then some!) of colors - to customize their own Plush Plum friend! Whether it's a character-inspired friend or a look-alike, there are options to please every child. It hasn't quite been a year yet, but during this time I have worked hard to bring my passion and love of dolls and toy animals to my customers. My goal with The Plush Plum is to continue doing what I love, and to grow as a person, seamstress, and business. I will continue to make each doll as unique and precious as the little ones who love them.

These are just a few of her creations...

I can't get enough of these big blue eyes and ponytails!

Another one of my favorites. So sweet.

Not only can you customize the doll, but you can buy changes of clothes. Here's one in a pillowcase dress that is sooo fun!

Love all the different prints. Easter next year maybe?

Even more clothes options. Pillowcase dresses and skirts. 
What little girl wouldn't love that? 

Thanks again to Lani from The Plush Plum for letting us share a bit about her
 oh-so-cute dolls and animals. 
Go check out all her fun designs, prints, and ideas HERE to customize your own.
