Made: Nursery Mobile

It took all of 5 minutes to construct this mobile for Elliot’s nursery. I purchased a photo mobile from Urban Outfitters (which unfortunately, does not seem to be available on their website) and used the clips on the mobile to attach a set of IKEA fingerpuppets. Easy and cute. Ta-da!


Total cost: $18

Sewed: Baby Dress

I’m sure it’s just me, but it seems like everyone I know is having babies. The craftblogosphere in particular seems to be saturated with women producing offspring. I am taking advantage of friends who are having girls however and am using the opportunity to create adorable teeny-tiny sized girl frocks, such as the one shown here:

It annoys me that nothing actually fits babies when they’re born unless they’re 9 or 10 pounds. So this dress was actually designed to fit a newborn (7-8 pounds) right at birth. I will post a pattern and how-to soon!
