So I am finally posting this is a dress that I made Olivia and her doll it was my first attempt at making clothes Olivia loved it and that made the time spent worth while.
Just another one of "Happy Olivia."
I got this crazy idea to make blankets for a few of my highschool friends that were having babies. Lets just say I don't think I will be doing this again anytime soon.
Just a close up. She is having twins so I did a boy and a girl one.

These capes were made from old t-shirts. We went to the movies & after coming home my kids were still reliving the movie - so to make up for a years worth of neglect I spent a couple hours constructing these easy capes. The best part is that there are no ties. I kept the neckline of the t-shirt so they can slip it on or off whenever they want.
So Here's what I did:
Step 1. Cut off sleeves at the arm pits.
Step 2. Cut off the front of the shirt.
Step 3. Serge the sides or fold for a clean hem & sew.
Step 4. Do not cut through the neck of the shirt unless you want to make ties.
Step 5. Use remnants of other t-shirts to make a letter for the back of the cape, zigzag stitch it on.
Step 6; You can use the discarded sleeves to make a mask. Just use a fabric pen to trace around the child's eye and cut (after removing it from child - might be safer)
Thanks for all the thoughts and well-wishes you've been sending our way! (This was taken from Christie's blog) Jen & I went to see Christie today in the hospital. Gavin looks just like Kevin & Cade. Those strong masculine McMillan genes! He is sweet and very peaceful. He hadn't eaten in quite a few hours and was content to let me hold him. Christie will be coming home on Saturday. Congrats! Christie we love you!
This is the baby gift I made for the New Momma! These are her favorite colors other than pink and pink.

I know I posted this cover on my blog but seeing that every one is very very busy and it has been a while since something new has been posted, I thought I would post it here as well. I used that tutorial that I posted earlier and it worked good but I think I would do it again with less exposed raw edges...until I get a serger of course! Bring on the breastfeeding, it may not be fun and it may hurt at first, but at least I will be stylin...right? I bought enough boning (it okay, Ty snickers too when he hears me say that word) to make a lot more, so let me know if you want one too, since we are all pretty much prego or will be again soon, it is only necessary.
