Easy burp cloths

My mom and I decided to spruce up some burpcloths with some fabric scraps. We just put them down the middle and sewed ribbon to the edges. We actually used pellon (iron on adhesive) on some, but they werent very soft, so I think it is better without.

The Hersheys Nugget Box

Our Primary gave these boxes to the teachers, and I thought they were such a good idea for Valentines. You use a pattern and make the box out of cardstock. It fits 8 hersheys nuggets perfectly. You can use address labels to recover the nuggets.
I am going to make them for Robbie's classmates and let him decorate the top (maybe a starwars picture with a pop-up dot) Then Ill print the labels with either the child's name on it or with cute valentine sayings.
Let me know if you want to try it and I'll email you the pattern.

Decorating Onesies Shower

My Mom and Sisters did a cute shower on for my sister Mir. I have heard of decorating onesies at showers...but I loved how they did them.

They cut out patterns using silouettes of animals, fish, airplanes...they found them in animal encyclopedias! Patterns may have consisted of multiple pieces and were together in plastic bags labeled by what they were.
They had a stack of adorable fabrics that Mir had chosen. They had all different sizes of onesies, some dyed different colors with RIT dye. The guests picked their patterns and away they worked cutting, ironing and placing.
Miranda will have to do the final stitching at home.

And for the food...
stacks of panini sandwiches: caprese, turkey, brie & pear, and ham, cheddar & apple

They had the panini grill hot so guests could grill their sandwich.

They also had a berry salad and green salad.

And cute sugarcookies for dessert & favors. The "m" is for Milo (the chosen name for the baby)

I cant wait to do a shower like it!!!
