lizzy & lali make stuff

lali and i had lofty plans for my trip to seattle, mainly including projects galore. we both find it amazing how much people get away with charging for baby products that we figure we can make ourselves (and better) in five minutes. well, the blasted cold caught up with us on saturday morning before our trip into the city and by evening i was feeling pretty beat, but by-golly if i wasn't going to master the sewing machine and make a few things! we spent sunday in "create" mode and i think we ended up with some pretty cute stuff and more ideas up our sleeves. we ended up sticking with the easy stuff (embellishing burp cloths & onesies) since my head was spinning with that oh-s0-fun cold/flu headache (lali's are here). and i guess i should mention that the onesies below were done by hand-no machine involved. i used the machine on my tu-tu onesie (which i'm having a hard time photographing) and the burp cloths (which i haven't photographed):

I'm impressed, very cute! What setting do you use on your sewing machine to make the stems?

So cute. I want to do cute crafty things...so if you want to bring some stuff this weekend, hint hint. I have a sewing machine and pretty much know how to use it. You just need to show me how to do the cute embroidery.

So cute! Did you ever do anything creative like that for Nash? With my boy on the way, I'm seriously lacking in the creativity department. I just don't know if a boy can wear something hand-crafted! If you come up with any boy appropriate creativity, please share.

I love them! You should be starting your own business! Or maybe you are and I am way behind... I wish I was creative! And Nash is getting sooo big!
