Dale was gone with the Priests for a high adventure camping trip during the heat wave. I, on the other hand, was stuck at home with no car, no A/C, and no desire to do anything that involved moving away from a fan.
So, I brought my sewing machine downstairs and got a ton of long awaited projects done because I could park my fat belly right in front of the fan for most of the day. I did nothing around the house and am suffering the consequences of that this week. Oh well.I bought a onesie at Walmart a few weeks ago. I was inspired by this onesie refashion. Mine didn't turn out nearly as cute as Dana's, but definitely worth the $2 total that I spent on it.
onesie was a size 6-9 months, but once you cut off those ridiculous snaps, it fits just like a shirt! And even Brighton likes it, with its cute popsicles all over it. Perfect for playing in the wee morning hours before it got too hot.
Bri, you rock. I'm glad you got to spend all that time figuring out how to make it, and then I can just steal your pattern from you. What are friends for, right?
A woman that Dale works with is going to have a little boy in early November. She's requested a "hooter hider." I've made a few of these and never posted any up for you to see! The shame! I've used this tutorial each time. I decided to make her a diaper and wipes pouch (a la Brianne, again!) and a burp cloth from a cloth diaper, too.
I also managed to finish the rest of my Pay It Forward gifts but won't post up pictures until they've arrived in the mail or I've actually managed to get over and deliver them (obvs). Speaking of, Kimmy dear, be ready for me to knock down your door!
Dale and I hung stuff up on the walls in Mason's room. It's ALMOST done, but not quite, so you're just going to need to be patient for a teensy bit longer until I'm ready to share it. But I will tell you, it looks awesome. I could literally sit in there for hours and just admire its beauty.
Hope the rest of you here in the NW had a productive/lazy heat wave week like me, and lived through it to tell your tale.
