Ribbon & Pearl Bracelet

I made my Maid of Honor a bracelet as part of her gift. It was quite frustrating to make, but it didn't take too long once I got it started. I didn't have any clear plastic thread so I used white thread, which isn't as stiff and might have been what made it more difficult to deal with. It turned out adorable either way!

Diaper Babies

My friend from 1st grade is expecting her second baby girl any day now and she had a baby shower a week before my wedding. It was also Mother's Day that weekend. Needless to say, I was a little nuts that week. I somehow managed to come up with these cuties as a gift to her:


All I had to do was buy newborn diapers, baby socks, washcloths and googly eyes. You roll the diaper up, wrap the cloth around it, turn the sock into a beanie and stick the eyes on. The washcloths I found weren't square and they were thicker, which made them hard to wrap, but Grayson helped and did a great job of figuring out a way to make it work!
