Baby Shoes

I finally looked up some patterns for baby shoes online.  You can find some at I also found some others, if you want more message me and I'll send them to you.
I wanted to make this pair to go with her dress on Sunday.  And I made them seamless so they are reversible, or could be anyway.  I only put interfacing on the outside fabric, and I should have done it to both fabrics so it would look nice with the light pink on the outside.  Oh well, live and learn, it's the first pair I made.  
And I made them too small!!!  Ughh!!!  The sole should be 4" and it's 3.75", it printed a little small and I just used it as it was.  If I would have taken the time to read more of the instructions, I would have realized that.  Oh well, they are still cute!  Hopefully Cheryl's baby will be small enough to wear them for a little.

I managed to squeeze one shoe on Mackenzie, but her heel wasn't all the way in.

I have patterns for many more styles!!!  I am so excited to make more!  Keep watching, I'm sure you'll see a lot of baby shoes!!!

Flower Barrettes

Dave's sister, Liz, had a friend make these headbands for Mackenzie and she is making a bunch of flowers to on them.  Aren't they so cute?  I just love them!
In the picture below, she smiled!  But her eyes were closed and I couldn't get another one with her eyes open, but it's still cute so I had to post it.

Tie Dye

We tie dyed t-shirts as a family last Monday night.  I had bought the stuff before Mackenzie was born and we finally made the shirts.  Jayden was so excited to finally make them.  We even did a onesie for Mackenzie and she has a cute little jean skirt on in the picture to go with her onesie.  We were headed to Granny's for swimming, that's why you see the boys in their swim suits.

Table Cloth and Little Picnic Table

Last summer when I was surfing some craft blogs I found this one with a table cloth made out of bandana's.  I thought it would be perfect for Becky and Ralph's picnic table (Dave made them the table 9 years ago for their birthdays.)  So the boys helped me pick out some colors and I sewed it together.
That's it, no hemming and not cutting!  Just sew the squares together.  Try to buy the same brand because they do vary in size a little.

I know I've seen some table cloth weights at TJ Maxx but who knew if they still had some and I didn't have time to go, so the boys and I made some.  The boys helped me paint some rocks and Dave and I put wire and beads around them finishing them off with a clip to attach to the table cloth.  Now the table cloth won't blow away.

This year Dave made his parents a smaller picnic table for their grandchildren to sit at...

Isn't it awesome?  Dave did a great job!!!
Happy 60th birthday to Ralph and Becky!!!!  My favorite in-laws!!!!!  We love you lots!!!!!

Liz had a friend of hers crochet a few headbands in different colors and Liz (my sister in-law) made some flower barrettes to go on the headbands.  So far I only got 2 flowers to along with her 4th of July outfit.  Isn't it adorable?
