Hospital Set

Who says hospital gowns have to be boring?

I made my own this morning using this tutorial:

I used a few tips from but really, I added my own trims and whatnot to it.

I apologize for the lighting. The colors are a lot more fun in person: pinks, magentas, turquoise, oranges, etc. Jaden calls it a jungle outfit :)

...and why not have baby girl match?

Sew Fitted Pocket Diapers

This evening, I sewed two fitted cloth diapers made from this pattern. It went super fast and they turned out pretty cute. They are reversible and inexpensive (the fabric was scored from my mother in law!) and need a snappi or a pin to close them. I have seen them with snaps and velcro but these are great because they grow with baby. 

They are pocket diapers, so they can be stuffed with a prefold diaper so any other absorbant liner.

I used flannel fabric (from my mother in law) and a receiving blanket I bought for 5o cents at a thrift store...this is the perfect place to find receiving blankets to cut up for cloth wipes and diapers and burp cloths, etc, but I did think they were kind of pricey (in my opinion) so I only got a couple. I think it would be better found at yard sales.

Since I don't have the life size model just yet, my oldest son let me borrow his blue cow.

....and these do need a cover.

Cant wait to try them out for real! Next, I am going to make a cover with minky fabric and fleece..I dont know how well it will work, but the pattern says this would make a good cover and I have the stuff to try it out!

DIY A Necklace Organizer

My jewelry has been out of control for awhile, and I was really getting tired of digging for it in random places in my dresser! I organized it all in my tiny little jewelry box and then took the "fun" necklaces (aka the really big ones) and decorated a board and hung it up in the closet...out of the way and now I can actually see what I have when I am getting dressed! I had all the materials here and it went really fast.  I am sure I am not the first person to come up with this but I thought I would share...

What I used:

1x4 board cut to desired length
patterned paper ..I used double sided and 3 pieces of different patterns.
mod podge
cup hooks
Now whenever I find the straggler necklaces that are MIA, I will officially be organized! (And there is room for a second one too :))
