New Background

I just posted this new background from Leelou Blogs for the spring. I love the plaid and the adorable header, but I'm not too sure about the font. Does it drive you crazy? If you don't like it, let me know, and I'll change the background. Otherwise, I'll probably change it soon anyway for the summer!

*I have two more birthday parties to write about. They were fabulous! I will really try to post about them soon! Here's a cute picture in the meantime!

Sew Along for Japan

I came across this sew along for the children in Japan on Living with Punks, and decided to give it a shot! My mom and I each made one. We decided to do onesies, so we had to shrink the pattern, and it worked really well!

I had sewn a pink ruffle onto a onesie back in January, planning to make a really cute onesie for Tessa for Valentine's Day! That obviously didn't happen, so instead I used it and coordinated the Japanese baby's dress! I love how they turned out! I know the pictures aren't that great, but I really wanted to post them tonight. (Tomorrow is Tessa's third 1st birthday party, so we'll be really busy!!)

This is the one my mom did. She's much more crafty than I am, but I think they both turned out really cute! If you think you want to make one (or some) of these, the lady collecting them has until May 21 to collect them all! That gives you all kinds of time to make one! Here is the info, if you're interested!
