Crafty McCrafterson

Yep, thats me! I have been feeling super crafty lately. I made a blanket for my good friend Lindsey and even though it didnt turn out all that well, I did it all on my own. I didnt have a coach (Mom) looking over my shoulder and coming to my every agrivated grunt. That would have been really nice but I did it on my own. So after the blanket was done, I had to think of another baby gift to make for my friend Julie who will be induced next Tuesday and whos shower was Saturday. So I decided to make a diaper cake and this is the final product.So when the cake was done, I had extra flowers left over so I decided to make some hair bows.Then I had Minky left over from Lindsey's blanket so I decided not to waste it and use it to make these cute burp cloths.Then I was looking for butterflies for when we get a house and can make a nursery for Elena and I found these awesome butterflies that are gorgeous and I cant wait to hang them up.I think its the fact that I have a daughter and I get to see all the dresses and bows she can wear it makes me want to make fun things for her and I can make things for other people too. Who knew a tomboy could be so crafty??!!

Cute diaper cake! What are you supposed to do with it? I got one at my shower and I didn't know what to do with it...
What did you use for the band on the headbands?

Well if the diapers are a bigger size, like I made mine with size 2, you can put it in the nursery as a decoration, or out on your kitchen table as a center piece until you need the diapers. Its mostly for looks until you use the diapers. I used womens white tights for the headbands. You just cut across the leg part any where in about a 2 inch strip and they stretch perfectly and are soft and dont leave dents in the baby's head.
