Taggie Blanket #4

I made this taggie blanket for a dear friend who just had a little girl. Similar to the other taggies I've made, but I used two coordinating fabrics for the top layer. I think this makes it a little more visually stimulating.

Rag Wreath

There are so many fun holidays in the spring, but I don't have the inclination to make a front door wreath for each one. So, I decided to make a spring color wreath. I couldn't decided what kind to make, and I didn't want to spend much money. Luckily, I had a lot of fabric scraps. I also had a foam wreath, so I decided to try a spring rag wreath. I cut strips of fabric 1 inch wide and about 10 inches long. I loved my rotary cutter for this project. I wrapped the strips around the wreath, double knotting them. I repeated this until I had filled the wreath. It took about two hours. Very simple.

Transportation Diaper Cake

I came across this photo while trying to sort through all of my digital pics. I made this several years ago for a friend expecting a boy. I picked up the wooden pieces at Michael's along with the wide navy blue grosgrain ribbon. I remember that they loved it, I just wish I'd taken a better photo. Now, back to organizing!

Up and away!

Hot air balloon

I painted this little canvas for a very sweet girl who loves pink and purple. It's 14 x 11 inch gallery wrapped canvas. Stretcher bars are 3/4 inch thick.

I painted around the edges, so it's ready for hanging. I attached a simple brass hanger on the back.
