    Nursing Cover

    These are super handy for a nursing mother and they are fairly simple to make. This one is made from about 1/2 yard of material (you can use more if you prefer) edges are folded twice over, ironed and stitched. At the top I make a little casing for the boning to fit in and I slide it in before sewing it off on the sides. (Boning can be purchased at JoAnn’s). I made matching ties for the neck piece(sew strips of fabric right sides together, then turn right side out, stitch to cover. I just tie mine off but you can also use D rings to fastin. Try it!!…

    Baby Shower Food and Game

    The shower I threw (with help) last week turned out so fun. Here are pictures of the food. Cupcakes (decorated with brown and blue). Punch made with a ice ring (had blueberries and puch frozen in a bunt cake mold). Little watermelon baby carriages. Filled with watermelon, cantelope, and pinapple.

    Jam Jar Decorating!

    My crafts are centered around the baby shower I am throwing this week. For one of the prizes I am giving away a homemade jar of Strawberry Jam. So I decided to decorate it with the theme of the shower (brown and blue). I used scrapbook paper on the top and around the base and printed out a cute clipart picture of a mommy and baby (edited to my colors) and added wording and the date of the shower. I put some ribbon around the top ring and added a descriptive tag on top with a ribbon bow. To view more please visit my blog!

    Baby Shower Invitations

    If you are throwing a shower of any kind you can easily make some handmade invitations on your computer and then cut and embellish. For these I picked a clip art picture from word and edited the colors of the stroller to the theme of the shower I am throwing. (Done by right clicking on the picture and selecting picture options.) I filled in the information and made 2 columns so that I could print 4 per page. All you do is print on cardstock (here I used plain white) and then cut. I used a corner cutter to round the edges and then 2 hole punches to make the…
