My sister Jakobi had an enrichment where they put together all these vinyl signs, she painted my board for me then sent me the words. I picked out my own paper and I finally got around to finishing a bunch of projects yesterday....

It's a little blurry, but it's a baby formula can with a hole in the top to put large buttons in for babies to play with....

Do you know how hard it is to find curtains that are actually what you want!? It is either really expensive, not the right color, or there is only one left.
So I set out to make the curtains.
From there it was the same thing, material was more expensive than what an actual curtain should cost, not exactly what I was looking for, or not enough to make two whole curtains.
So this is what I did: I bought two white curtains and Target and sewed a blue strip at the bottom. All in all I think it turned out pretty good and Jax now has curtains!

Okay I am going to post these pics anyways, but I stole the idea off a blog and I can't remember where! Yikes! There was a really good tutorial and when I find it I will let you know! Sorry to whoever's blog it was, it was a link off of Crafty Jill and I feel like I've gone through all of her links and I CAN'T find it! Frustrating! But anyways, this was way easy and I am going to track down that tutorial and post credit where credit is due....

Onsie dress

Cut it apart and then sew it all together again! I stole this idea from this dress.

Infant Carrier Covers

My latest projects...

This one is for Parker T.

This one is a gift for one of Troy's nieces that just had a little boy.

Today when I left the house with this over Parker, I fell in LOVE with having this cover over him! I am usually fighting with the blanket trying to keep it on and then struggling to hold on to Taylor that this thing made it a breeze!

2 Dresses & a Tie

I made these cute dresses for Taylor and a little tie for Parker.

I have started loving sewing so much that I would rather do that then make bows?!?!?!
It's kind of my time "away from kids" even though they are usually in the room (basement) with me while I am sewing, but they manage to always be fairly well behaved and stay out of trouble.

They must know Mommy needs some time.....

Transition Jeans

Shoot me now if I am the only one that has to wear 'transition' jeans after having a kiddo! :)

I have yet to fit into my 'pre-preggo' jeans and I am so close that I don't want to go out and buy a new pair, but my 'fat' jeans are just too big in the waist these days.

I have two choices...
1. Feel like a stuffed sausage in my smaller jeans
2. Have major bum crack/big waste jeans that bunch up funny when you tighten your belt to keep them on!

I Have recently become a fan of Sew, Mama, Sew! Blog and came across this tutorial to "End Bum Crack" jeans.

It pretty much helps you turn your pants into an adjustable waist band like my 2 1/2 year old wears! I was pretty skeptical to do it, but I was desperate!

I didn't take a before picture, nor am I going to post a picture of my bum for the world to see so you will have to see the picture on the tutorial. But trust me, I fixed my favorite transition jeans and I am in LOVE! You really can't even tell, especially if you add a belt!

Happy sewing if you have the same problem as I!

I was BUSY today!

Look at this cute Baby bandana. Paisley slobbers so much and it actually works quite well. I saw them at Target and stole the idea. Bad Korbi, Bad!

I had a friend ask me to make her some bows, so then I went crazy and did it ALL day and my back is killing me. Here are some of my favs...I think that she looks like a cute little present. :)
Yep, that's my squeaker!

Baby Blanket

This is a baby blanket that I made for a friend of mine. I love that it's got a lot of minkee fabric, so it's SO soft! I got the fabric and pattern at Brooks Fabrics in Bountiful. I think that it turned out so cute!
Check out the quilting. Sew Divine Quilting did it; isn't it cute? I just love the baby buggies, rattles, & bottles. What do you think?

Baby Legs

Baby Legs demonstration by Baby Hopes. (How do you attach a site to the name of the site, so I don't have to post the actual "http:// blah blah blah?) Like the name Baby Hopes is highlighted and you can click it to take you to the tutorial?)

My one hour bag and applique for Paisley

I finally got around to making the one hour bag that was previously posted on here. I have also been working a lot with my new sewing machine and I love all the fun stitches that it does. It's not as sturdy as my old Bernina, but definitely more fun! I made two of these bags, the first one I gave to me niece, Kylee, 11 yrs, because she was here staying and watched me do the last bit of it. And her and I both have an amazing obsession with bags! We also made some glove animals. She loves crafts and was so amazed to watch the animal come together out of a pair of gloves! She also couldn't believe it when I was sewing the strap for the bag. She was so unsure of how it would look good because I was sewing the outsides together and then flipping it out, then it all came together and she said, "wow! It's like a real strap, like one from a store!"

My mother-in-law, two sister-in-laws, and myself had a little craft day on Friday. We painted and decorated magnet boards. I think its neat how different they all turned out. We all started with a base coat, than we applied crackle paint, then our top coat. After they dried we sanded and then added decorations. Here are the finished projects.




Julie's (mother-in-law):

We bought these magnet boards at Robert's in Idaho Falls. The paint and supplies at Micheals. The stamps we had already. A real fun craft!!

Diaper Cake

I had another baby shower that I went to and made another diaper cake.
I have only gone to girl baby showers so I have been able to just use flowers to decorate the cake with. There are a few people I know having boys soon so I will most likely have to come up with some 'boy-ish' ones... :)

I watched this video on how to make the cake-

Mod Podge

The bubbas and I made this box for a birthday party that they went to last week. You just mod podge paper, stickers, rhinestones, etc on any type of box. Then use different colored ribbons to tie on the handle, and voila!
