Craftiness...

I have been making a list (during study breaks) of fun things I want to craft/sew/make/do this summer.

You just can't sit in a tiny windowless, airless, artificially lit law library study room going over homicide flash cards without some breaks. Trust me.

I thought I would collect some of the crafty things I have done in the last year or so...but preface it with the disclaimer that I am still a beginner in many ways (e.g. the white thread you can see coming through these booties) especially when compared to crafistas extraordinaires like my mother. Mostly, I am interested in making the kinds of things that I would want and that I would want to give to my friends as meaningful gifts/mementos for special occasions in their lives.

Jets booties I made for baby Kate.

Vintage pillowcase dress for Gracie Jo.

Tissue pom-poms.

Striped recieving blanket with crocheted edge for baby Mylee (I know the baby is a lot cuter...but try to work with me here.)


Halter apron for public interest law auction (custom order).

Diaper wreath.

I have to learn how to make those pom poms. They are perfect!

Everything else is so cute too. I have a HUGE desire to do tons of sewing, reupholstering, crocheting, etc. when we move back to Utah, so let's get together this fall. :)

Um...that would be my expert level work. :)

How cool is that diaper wreath? Ingenious!
