Another Baby Blanket

I just can't make enough little cute baby blankets.

Receiving blankets are super easy to make.

"Greeter Deterrent"

These are all over the internet right now.  And I wanted to add my own little touch to the idea.  LOVE IT!

Call it what you will... car seat canopy, car seat tent, etc.  My favorite name for this is "Greeter Deterrent" because of this post on Cluck Cluck Sew.  Too funny.

Yup, you guessed right.  It's homemade.  It was super easy, and a whole lot cheaper than buying the "Boppy" pillow in stores.

Giving credit where credit is due, here's the link for the pattern:

Baby Quilt

This goes with the cuddly puppy from my last post.  You can't see the colors very well in this photo, but it's green and brown (the colors coordinate with the wall canvases).

Cuddly Puppy

Can you tell we're close to having a baby?  All my crafts are baby stuff!!

I love this little stuffed puppy.  It's so soft and cuddly.  I hope our baby loves it just as much as I do.

Easy as Paint By Numbers

Does painting your own canvas seem overwhelming?  I thought so too.  But this turned out so much easier than I ever thought it would be.  Here's the 6 easy steps:
1. Buy used canvases from D.I.
2. Spray paint all canvases
3. Find image from online (I used google image search) and print.
4. Freehand "draw" image on to newspaper.  I basically used the google image as my template to freehand the image I wanted, in the right size for my canvases.  Trust me, it was easy.  With the printed image as your template, it's not really "drawing."
5. Place the newspaper drawing on your canvas and trace with a pencil, directly on the canvas.
6. Using craft paint, paint in the lines you've just traced from your newspaper drawing.

7. Voila! You've done it.  All by yourself!  Congrats!


Rather than innundating my family blog with all my crafts, I'm introducing my new blog for all craft things.  I can't wait to show you what I've made.
