A couple of my friends have recently been blessed with new babes, so I've been busy crafting away! I made this cute little froggie from a free online pattern. Yay! I love free patterns! His bottom half is "stuffed" with a tennis ball which makes him a little bouncy. I debated whether or not to add the toes and I'm really glad I did, because I think they're so stinkin' cute.
My dear friend Jenny recently had twin boys to add to her brood of handsome guys (5 including hubby). I felt like the twins might need matching sun hats and shoes. I bought the patchwork fabric at Joann and think it turned out really cute. While making these, I really came to realize how much I love my overlock sewing machine! If you are a sewer and don't have one, I highly recommend it. It does such a nice job finishing edges. It took me awhile to get comfortable with it, but now that I am, I turn to it during almost every project. It makes everything look more complete. The shoes were really a pain in the butt because of their size. I'm not sure they will fit any baby feet, but I'm hoping to go meet the new guys soon and see.
