|hello, my love|
I had a baby shower to go to last weekend and used that as a convenient excuse to go on a "tiny things are adorable!!" bender for learning the sewing machine. It was also a great excuse to do dorky things like make my own bias tape with this really cool little doodad. I told Craig it was my version of a power tool. He was not really impressed. Anyway, see adorable tiny things below:
|tiny things are adorable, prepster edition - square cookie cutters also make really excellent templates for appliqué|
|tiny things are adorable, owl + teeny onesie dress edition|
|who wouldn't want a tiny adorable stuffed owl? it was even soft and cuddly with its snuggle fleece body. oh, owl, I love you.|
Erin: Craig, look at this tiny owl! Isn't it just super-cute?
Twenty minutes later...
Erin: Omgggg, how freaking cute is THIS tiny owl? I just love him!
Really not too much later...
Erin (possibly for the fourteenth time): Craig, look at this tiny owl!! Isn't it adorable?!?
Craig: Please don't show me any more owls.
So then I just started showing the owls to Zach and Harry for approval, which was going pretty well until Zach decided he might like to maim and destroy the tiny stuffed owl, which was absolutely not part of my plan. Fortunately, no animals, real or fabric-made, were harmed in the making of the tiny owls.
A couple of our friends from DC also recently welcomed a sweet little boy into the world, so I toned down the level of owlsy cuteness and switched from pink & green to blue & yellow for some teensy little boy craftiness, too.
And then to make Zach feel better for denying him the pleasure of destroying a stuffed thing, I made a little label for his new bed. It now says "zach" in really cute letters instead of saying "KONG" in ugly letters. He loves it. And I love automatic thread-cutting (even more than I love tiny owls...I think). Thanks, honey. On to curtains!
