1. Easy Embroidery
Embroidery projects are so easy and rewarding. (A great couch project for when you're on bed rest, just sayin'.) You don't need to know any fancy stitches to make a beautiful piece that you'll admire in your nursery for years to come. I used this pattern from Amy Bindel. It is no longer on her blog, so you'll need to print it from the pin if you're interested in using it. Really you can use any drawing, just trace it lightly with a pencil on to your fabric and stitch over your markings.Sewing Pinterest page for free embroidery designs and basic stitches. Have fun with it, throw the embroidery rules to the wind and just stick that needle in the fabric and get started, I promise you'll thank me.
2. Baby Booties
Are you totally sick of my gray felt and pink bows yet? I can't walk up the stairs a bunch, so I've got to squeeze every bit of creativity out of the supplies I have within reach. I promise, there's only one more project I want to show you with my 68 cent sheets of felt, but I'll wait until Laney is born to reveal that one! :) On to the current project... baby booties!
Modern Baby Bootie Tutorial to make these, but I did it with felt. If I made these again I would definitely double up the felt to make it more sturdy or use leather like my Little Man Shoes from forever ago, remember those?!
3. Paci Clip
These are just the easiest to make, and don't you love this ruffly ribbon?! Tutorial here.
