Crafting Session

I love our Brown girl mothers.  News travels fast with them! So as a few of you probably know, I am as my dad says "in a family way" or as Emma says my "eggo is preggo". Take your pick. :) I've known for a while but didn't want to make it public to the blogging community.  But this has given me a chance to start working on some cute craft ideas.  I just got back from Idaho where my best friend and I experimented.  We made nursing covers and appliqued some onesies and made some burb rags. I'm no a very good applique-er so don't mind the edges and we couldn't quite figure out the thickness and width of the right stitch so it doesn't show up very well on the outsides of the applique.
  
Nursing Cover
Elephant Onesie (looks more like a heffalump!)
Necktie Onesie
This is my favorite! Cowboy(girl) boot!
And matching burb rag but the edges got chewed up my the machine so I'm going to have to fix those. But it is a rag for spewing so I don't think the edges really matter that much!
