I got the pattern and idea for this bag here. It is called a 1- hour bag, but I was visiting with some friends so it took me longer. I guess I am not great with multi-tasking. :)
I got the idea and pattern for the crayon holder here. It was fun and easy too. I loved using matching fabric for them both.
Two fun afternoon crafts. I recommend them both!!!!!!

I still need to make some curtains but that means I will have something fun to share next time.
Ice cube trays make the best organizer
So I am in a pinch and don't have anything to organize my buttons, paper clips, brads....
so I used an ice cube tray!
I thought that was pretty "crafty" for myself!

I just finished making my 3rd one, first one was for me, then my sister Britni and now my friend Rosalie. She already had the material (way cute huh?) So I had a bunch left over and made her an applique burp rag with the letter K because her little 5 lb !!! baby girl is named Kali. I use the boning and have a love/hate relationship with it. I like to be able to see, but I kind of feel like I look like an oxen with a yoke around my neck. :) I also like to cut my burp rags in half because it just seems so big, but 2 of my sisters love the full size ones.
I made this scrapboook for my sister's Mother-in-Law. I think I made it look too busy, but overall turned out okay. It reads, "Marsha rocks and these are the reasons why!" I also am in love with my Cricut cutter, which I don't use enough and wish that I used more. I cut the "Love" and the flowers out of vinyl and stuck them on this glass "window" payne ( how do you spell that?) that I got at a garage sale for a buck and then added ribbon. I didn't know that my Cricut cut vinyl until a few months ago when I was up watching a Cricut infomercial at 3AM pregnant as a cow, so now I know. :) I was going to just use it for Valentine's Day and put a pink light in it, but I like it, so I stuck it in Paisley's room.
The only thing I did differently on the nursing cover is I didn't do the boning around the neck. I purchased one off of e-bay (to get the pattern to make my own!) and I don't like how the neck is stiff and sticks up all the time. They say the boning is for you to have 'eye contact' with the baby, but my thought on the whole thing is that if I am in public covering up to nurse I am not wanting to sit & 'bond' too much with him/her. It's get in & get out! ;)
I also made mine a little longer & wider so that it will wrap around my sides a little better.
With Parker spitting up as much as he does the burp rags are awesome because they are BIG and absorb great!
