May Projects

Maniac I am! I was given that quilt back to add a sleeve to the back so it can be hung on a wall but after that I have gone bizonkers with my crafting.

I made a stroller quilt for Levi out of material I have had since before he was born that was meant for this project. What is a stroller quilt? It is a long skinny quilt. . .

with a way to attach it it to the stroller. . . (snaps in my case but one could just tie it on)

and buttons to fold it up on it self so little toes can be inside and it can stay off the ground. Isn't that cool? I found the tutorial online but I have it in email for if anyone is interested

This pic was the 1st time I tried the quilt out and I can now see that I need to add some button holes higher up to make it short. I think I will make the next baby's stroller quilt 6-12 inches shorter or at least make the fabric at the bottom of the quilt more boring :)

I made myself a necklace birth stones, stars, new baby and all
I am exceedingly snap happy around here. I am converting all my velcro diapers to snaps because velcro is buggin! I have also exchanged velcro for snaps on all my bibs too. I bought the supplies at kamsnaps- if you sign up for their newletter you can hold off buying until there is a good deal.

Lastly for May, I made a Double Reversible Shopping Cart Cover for my babes. I bought the pattern on etsy and it easy to make except for one small change I would have made to the pattern. If you are ever going to make one you can ask what that change is :)

More to come!!!

Do you have a snap machine then? I have thought one of those would be nice, but I can't justify such a purchase. Where do you find the time?!

Stroller quilts (or what looks like a stroller sleeping bag from the store) is an absolute must have in this country. What a great project! Yep yep, You're amazing.
