Sad To See You Go…

So sad…my friend Janice from work is moving up to N. Cali with her husband and two boys.  I thought making her a Ribbon Picture Board that she can put pictures of all our fun times together on the CVICU would be a nice going away gift. I also made her a Wipe case (How-To blog coming for this), because I remember her seeing one a few months back and wanting one.

I did some things a little different on this Ribbon Picure Baord than I talked about on my eariler post (see, no need to go word for word…allow yourself some creative freedom… let me know how it goes – I’d love to see pictures of your projects!)

For starters, I one used 3 types of ribbon. I didn’t think i could do this at first. I was about to told off on this project until I could get more ribbon, but then I thought I should just try and see what happens. As luck would have it, I really like how it turned out.

Can’t wait to give Janice her gifts tomorrow!

Ribbon Picture Board

Ribbon board and wipe holderI got this idea from a picture @ Michael’s craft store. It’s super cute and fun. It can be done both on a small scale or large scale.

Materials

* Canvas (16″x20″ is what I used in the demo, but I’ve done as small as 10″x13″ and as large as 26″x48″). I get my cavases from Michaels

* Ribbonyou will need at least 7 differnet colors/patterns of ribbon. The amount depends on your canvas size. For 16″x20″ you will need at least 4ft of each (you will have some leftovers). I get my ribbon from Michaels and Stampin’ Up!

* Push Pins (ones with long neck) – clear and white (or colored if you’d like)

* Small Paper Clips – with plastic covering. White or colored.

* Hot Glue

* Accessories – Ex: Chip board (mine is from Stampin’ Up!) – letters, numbers, shapes, tags, etc.

* Pictures – to post on your board when you’re finished.

Breastfeeding Cover

How to make your own Breastfeeding cover!

Breastfeeding Cover

Breastfeeding Cover

When I was pregnant with my 2nd “little guy” (who is not so little…we call him Moo-moo), a friend of mine told me how she found this free pattern for breastfeeding covers online!

I was really wanting one, but was having a difficult time with the idea of a piece of material costing $30+. So, embarked on my cover-making-extravaganza! I made 3 in one evening; gave 2 away as gifts and one for myself.

After using mine for the past 7 months now, there were some things that i felt were lacking from the pattern that I found, and I wanted to share my new found ideas with others…hope you find them helpful.

I use a lot of pics to help illustrate because that’s what I find most helpful for me – ENJOY!

Materials

* 1 yard Fabric (for a great selection check out M&L fabrics)

* D ring – I used 1 1/4 inch

* Corset Boning. You need 1/2 yard @ ~1/4 inch wide and most stiff (wow, that got dirty fast!)

* Thread

* Iron and ironing board (optional, but it makes things so much easier sew)

* Snaps and attacker

Lets get started!
