Baby Gear!

Today I'm going off the beaten path and showing off a bit of what I've been working on today.  I'm now 6 1/2 months pregnant (WHOA) so I thought it was time to start working on all the little DIY projects I've been stashing away :-)

Now that I can move around in my craft room, I was able to get all my t-shirt making stuff out and accessible and made a few onesies and bibs for our little guy.  They're all either vinyl or a combination of vinyl and fabric.  Super easy to do if you have a Cricut or a Pazzle Inspriation like I do.  I get my t-shirt vinyl on the cheap from Heat Transfer Warehouse.  I'm in no way a spokesperson for them, but their prices are super low and they also have coupons that come out fairly often.  I use the ThermoFlex PLUS since it adheres to all sorts of different fabrics, even athletic ones.  Pretty cool!!

I also broke out the sewing machine and made a receiving blanket and a taggie blanket.  The furry fabric on the back of the taggie was shedding EVERYWHERE, so I managed to resolve it by serging the edges before I sewed them to the polka dot fabric.  It seemed to do the trick, so hopefully our little guy won't have a face full of brown fur the first time he gets his hands on it :-)
