more baby stuffs

made this bib from an old t shirt and some leftover fabric. I'm running low on pretty thread colors, so I picked an image from my embroidery machine that would look alright with what I had - browns. decided on the ice cream and added the caption "nom nom nom". I know babies don't eat ice cream cones.... but I thought it was cute just the same. I serged the edges and put on a snap and called it a day.

these booties are made from the same pattern as the grey knitted ones I did. this is how they come out with fleece squares and embroidery stitches. I doubled up the fleece so they'd be thicker and baby won't feel the stitches on the inside. I think they may have taken as long to make if I'd just knitted them! just the embroidery took forever, not actually sewing them together - don't let it scare you away from trying them!

I used smartie wrappers again in the wings of this felt butterfly - I love how they crinkle :) - attached a ribbon and looped it onto a Link-a-doo ring.

I did this elephant with leftover fabric from my crib bedding, put eyelets on his feet and attached wood wheels on dowels through them. might be more of a cute thing to look at than actually play with because it's so tiny, but it was fun to make.

I can't wait to get these out in the mail... :)
