Feeling Crafty

Since I have been on an even tighter budget lately, I have been trying to keep myself out of Target and off of Etsy by making a few things myself. I know I have said this before, but I am not crafty. I will only attempt things I know I can do. There is one project I finished last night that I can't post yet because it is part of a gift I am giving to my brother and Rachel at their shower tomorrow...but I will have to say I LOVE how it came out! In fact, I am making some for us now too!

So after that project turned out so well, I decided to work on a couple of things for Ellie. I normally am not a fan of zebra print for baby girls (it's just not very babyish) but the iron on prints only came in zebra, leopard and camo so my options were limited. Basically all I did was print off my own pattern from enlarging a letter to size 300 font on Microsoft Word, cut it out, cut out my fabric, and ironed it on to my onesie and bib! It was a simple project, but I am proud of my little creation. Who knows...I might keep going and see what else I can come up with. It was fun and I am pretty proud of myself!
