Baby Legs

I was at the dollar store a few months ago and I spotted these adorable striped scarfs! I thought "too bad those aren't tube socks, they would make the cutest baby legs." It never dawned on me to actually sew them into baby legs! I'm so creative huh?

So, I forgot about those cute scarfs until today when I found this GREAT tutorial on obsessively stitching. She teaches how to turn those exact adorable dollar store scarfs into baby legs!

I don't have a serger but I was able to do the tutorial the exact same except instead of serging I zig-zag stitched, I went around each end twice and I made the stitches short. I think it worked well!!

So cute!! I think I am going to have to make a pair out of every color scarf they have!

I added the cute flower bow Eden is wearing to the boutique today!
I am going to be doing some more in different colors soon hopefully!

Little Apron

This is sooooo easy and fun! It's a little apron made from a place mat! Of course Eden wont be able to use this for a few years but it was only $1 to make and I can save it for her! I got the idea and tutorial HERE on dollar store crafts!

Hooded Bath Towels and a FIRST!

Don't you love the idea of hooded bath towels for babies? Don't you hate the ones you buy at the store that only last for maybe 3 months before your baby out grows them?? I was sooooo pleased to find an awesome, simple, tutorial at Green Apple Orchard HERE. Like I have mentioned before, I am a beginner when it comes to sewing so I was excited when I saw how easy a project this was. I got my towels and wash cloths at wal-mart on clearance. The big towels were only $2.00 each and the wash cloths were only $1.00 each! Yah!! I made two and love how much more functional they are compared to those tiny baby hooded towels!

My mom was in town this past week and she helped me make a jumper for Eden! This was the first time I have ever sewn something like this. My mom helped me follow the pattern and basically told me what to do! This pattern had "easy" on the cover and after doing it with help, I just might be able to make another one all by myself, just maybe!
