Baby Shower

I missed a week of blogging! I apologize, but I have been moving. I have been in my new place about a week and now we are getting back on track.

Remember my previous post: It's Baby Season ? Well, the baby shower came and went! I love seeing new moms enjoying my creations.

Flower arrangement with the plane and party favors I made
Baby Cake Balls Pops-difficult to get to stay on the stick. Froze them, first, then tried freezing with the ball on it already. All around a big crafting difficulty. I don't think I will ever put them on sticks again! Look cute as rattles though right?

Feeling sluggish?

What is that I see? A little banana slug! Indeed!
Okay, okay! So he is not a snail, but he still belongs here.

This is my second attempt at needle felting (see previous post: Lady Bug). I decided I had to do something with my yellow wool. I thought a bright yellow banana slug would be perfect. I got my needle felting kit from NifNaks. The kit was only $15.00 included: 2 needles, 6 colors of wool (you get to pick) and a foam pad. In addition, it came with a history of needle felting! The modern form of needle felting started in the 1980's, but felt can be dated back as far as 6300 B.C. Pretty cool! Only thing, it is a bit time consuming and watch out for your precious fingers, I stabbed myself a few times!

Are you tired of onesies yet? I am! This is my last one in a batch of five I have created! The baby shower is this Saturday, so I finished it just in time. Only problem I had with this onesie is the color, it made transfering my pattern (from Urban Threads) difficult.

I ended up using chalk first to transfer the pattern. However, the chalk would not stay, so I traced over the chalk with pen. You can still see the pen marks since I haven't washed it yet. Overall, it turned out cute and what mom to be wouldn't love this!?

Next week's bait:
Felting! I have already finished a project, but I am waiting until next week to show it off.
