With a family of 7 we tend to go through cups like toilet paper. No one remembers where they set their glass down , who the cup actually belongs to, or if some certain 3 year old has backwashed in it!

I knew as soon as I saw this on interest that I’d have to give it a try

Personalized coasters!  Except, being me, I wanted to use what I already had around the house.  Meet fabric personalized coaster!

I took the tutorial from here.  Except I used some old receiving blankets as the middle since i seem to have a plethora of boy colored ones that I have no need for.

I also decided these would be a good project to try some reverse appliqué since I’ve never been brave enough to try it before.  I don’t usually freehand my letters but did this time since I was working on a baby’s nap schedule. You can tell!  And the D did not pop as much as I would have liked, oh well.  They must have been a hit, because I came down this morning to discover them already in use…

A whole new world

Well, phew.  Time to dust off the blog.  It’s been an incredibly crazy time here and as things have slowed down I’m finally getting back to some crafting.

First of all, let’s take a look at this little cutie that at first has cut out my crafting time.  

While she has taken away some of my crafting time she has given me a whole new reason to craft.  Headbands

Baby legs

And little skirts (added the ruffle from my experience here) …sorry, this is from the phone so it’s a little fuzzy.

(the onsies were a gift from my baby shower)

So stay tuned for more craftiness from me as my little one gradually learns to take naps in her crib!
