Crafts: A Sweet Surprise!

29 Sep

I’m just going to go ahead and say it – I am SHOCKED at how much I got done today. Especially because I didn’t even start crafting until 7:00 p.m. Today I got four new burp cloths done and I got a sweet surprise for all to see! But since I haven’t even stopped to show you what I made in the beginning of the week – I’ll save these four burp cloths for another day!

Monday’s Burp Cloths!

I’ve also been working on a custom order with some AWESOME fabric! I’ve made two burp cloths, making a wipe case, and a taggie blanket for a baby shower gift. Once everything is finished I’ll post a picture of it πŸ˜€ but here’s a sneak peek at the fabric:

It’s coming out so cute! I’ll be working on this for the rest of the week/weekend so I probably won’t get much else done but I’m so excited about it I don’t care!!!

Then the sweet surprise! One of the girls I BNR with was asking for help to review a pattern and I got super excited because it’s a cup cozy! I’m a sucker for those things because I love hot chocolate every morning, I love crocheting, and it’s a cute way to add I nice soft personal touch to an otherwise boring or ugly mug!

So she sent me the pattern and I made it no time and absolutely LOVE IT! I can see myself making hundreds of these while watching tv, in between sewing when my back needs a break, and when I’m feeling lazy. My house might just be full of these in no time!

The second best thing is that this yarn I used comes in almost every color imaginable! So the choices are outrageous! I just used some scraps I had on had and since it hardly takes any yarn I think I’ll probably be able to make 30 of these until I need to go buy more or I just want a different color! AWESOME!

Another completely awesome thing is that she isn’t selling the pattern as personal use only. So you might just see these if you are coming to the craft show πŸ˜‰

Life just keeps getting better and better ❀

Thanks for stopping by!

Love Always,

J
