Sewing for my little girl

At last I have found the time to show the other sewing I did the other day. Yes, cute little girly hearts on baby vests for my little one. I should really have focused on babygros instead as these little vests will get covered up but hey-ho. I cut the hearts from felt using my Big Shot and then added little embellishments. Don't worry I sewed them on really tightly!

Not something I usually do but as a friend just had a little boy I wanted to send a gift. Being quite huge now, I didn't fancy the shops so I thought of something I could make. I simply sewed a small piece of ribbon onto the vest using orange embroidery thread in running stitch, and then backstitched the felt letters on.

I also made some tops for our baby but as the gender is still secret, I can't post those pictures just yet!

New month, new me?!

The days have passed in a blur as the baby's birth creeps up.

Having said that here are lots of nice new projects I have made to rectify my poor blogging history. The good thing about pregnancy is that you can't sleep which gives you LOTS of time for crafting!

Before you get too excited thinking I've revealed the gender of the baby the first card is for a friend who's just had a little boy! So no sneaky preview, sorry!!

I love animal stamps and although this one isn't in the new catalogue I know it's only a matter of time before I get the new animal stamp sets and patterened paper in the new catalogue!

The Christmas card is ripped off from the NEW 2009 catalogue (pg34) except that I used bigger brown cirlces and I added diamond glitter to the red strip - every xmas card should have glitter, right?!

The turquoise card is one I have made in a very large quantity. It's a thank you card as I am sure that we are going to have lots of people to thank who help us out with our new little one.

The other excuse for me not being online is that I have been doing parties. I've not really kept up the pace over the past year with parties - too many other things going on like getting married, moving house and falling pregnant. However, I am keen to hold lots of parties once I get over giving birth etc. So let me know if you'd be interested! If you feel your house is too small you can come to mine!!!

Have got to start on birth announcements but I have to admit I am lacking in ideas for this...
