On Tuesday night I finally decided what I wanted to make for a baby shower for the following evening. Why I sometimes wait until the last minute to make up my mind is beyond me. But, that is just what I did.
So, I spent all Tuesday night and then all Wednesday pretty much at my sewing machine. My poor kids. But, I did get the present done.
I ended up making this cute quilt out of fabrics I had. I went searching through my fabric stash on Tuesday night after I finally made my decision on a quilt. I found a good amount of bright colors from some other projects I have done in the past. I decided to try out the disappearing 9 patch quilt. I was happy with the final product. It definitely took longer then I thought. But, I am not very good at judging things to be honest. Then as a little touch I made this cute monster. I have been seeing some fun monsters out there in the crafting world lately and have loved them. I actually want to make giant ones like this for my boys beds next. Wouldn't that be fun?
These were for a friend that recently adopted a little baby boy from Africa. He is pretty much a stinkin cute little guy. Every time I see him I cannot help but constantly smile at him. His smile is to die for. It was fun going to her shower last night and giving her these too. I really love giving a handmade present. So, Congrats to Lisa and baby Mark Basa.
