Did you guess right?

So did you guess which project was mine? Those of you that know me definitely guessed right. I made the dino backpack. I'm excited to give it to Munchkin #2 on his birthday next month. I'm going to embroider his name on the front.

I had this dinosaur fabric and the stripped fabric for a while now. I was going to make curtains to match a quilt that my sister-in-law made Munchkin #2. But I just haven't gotten around to it. And the little guy needs a new backpack for church so I thought I'd whip this up for him. It's sort of a backpack/diaper bag since we are still working on the potty training thing. Anyway, I quilted the whole thing to add some sturdiness. I love how it came out. AND guess what....after this contest is over I'm going to share the tutorial (including a pattern) with you all!! So stay tuned

Well I'm moving on to week #3. This weeks theme is Puddle Jumping. I'm excited to get some great projects done for this week.

I have to say, I did love Kate's wedding dress. I also loved seeing my daughter's face as she watched a real prince and princess get married. She is such a girl and loved every moment of it. Even convinced her daddy to watch it with her. :)

So now I am obsessed with the flower girl dresses. They are gorgeous. I want to try to make one for my daughter that is similar but not in white.

So pretty!

Woo Hoo...On to week 2

Well the results are in...check it out. I made a picnic blanket for this summer. I'm so excited to use it. I've been wanting one but did not want to pay for one. :) I used 2.5 yards of fabric, 2.5 yards of batting and then I bought some vinyl to make it water proof. Basically you just sandwich it all together and you get this wonderful picnic blanket. It's huge so we have plenty of room for all of us! I used this tutorial to get a rough idea of what I wanted to do.

I'm excited about week 2. I have several ideas in my head. Just hoping I have the time to get them all completed. Our theme this week is Extra Ordinary. Should be fun!

I got the kids Easter outfits completed...and with 15 minutes to spare Saturday night. Not bad for a procrastinator. Ha ha!

Here is Munchkin #2's outfit. He got to wear it for about 15 minutes at church on Sunday before he proceeded to pee and poop in it. Got to love potty training! I can't remember which pattern I used (I'll have to look later) but I changed the patter a little. Since the fabric I used was so light I decided to line the entire outfit. I LOVE how it turned out.

You already saw Munchkin #1's completed dress. She loved it and told me she looked like a princess. Makes my heart happy to hear her so happy with it. Makes getting almost no sleep totally worth it. :)

Busy busy...

This quarter at school has started off with a bang! We had two exams already this needless to say, I've been a busy mama. On top of school, I have a sick little girl, I'm finishing Easter outfits and working on my first entry for the Extreme Makeover: Fabric Edition.

Here's a sneak peak at my daughter's Easter outfit. It's not quite finished but almost. It's based on a pattern but I made my own changes too. I'll share some of those after Easter. I'm making my son an outfit too but it's not ready for pictures yet.

Bree announced the first theme for the Extreme Makeover: Fabric Edition...Wildflowers and Whimsy! Fun fun...I'm working on a great project and hopefully you will all vote for me when the projects are posted on Friday. Plus April will have a giveaway posted for all of you so check out her blog as well. Doesn't get better than that!
