Baby Features!

So, I learned an important lesson this week. Sudafed and sewing do not mix. Even more so, Sudafed and sewing something you've never attempted before is an even worse mix.

I had an idea. A brilliant idea. A brilliant Craft Fail. I saw the adorable taggy sunshine, which I featured on an earlier post this week, and thought- I can do that! Well, to be specific, I was going to change it up. I had bright green minky, so I decided I was going to make a turtle. With taggies, and zebra print minky legs & a tail. With crinkle material, and bells.

The end product? A misshapen blob unrecognizable as a turtle. I lopped the head off, and continued- it just kept getting worse. And worse. No way I'm giving that "turtle" to anyone as a gift. It was failure on an epic level.

I blame the Sudafed. I hate to take responsibility for such an epic crafting fail.

I've taken a deep breath, and moved on, to a small 4x4 crinkle square with taggies. I haven't sewed it yet, it's all pinned, though. Hopefully, it'll turn out much better than the Turtle.

In the mean time, here are some more great baby craft features from this week's Baby Week Link Party!

Don't forget to post your own Baby projects- past or present! The party ends on Saturday!

Yikes Heather! I'm so sorry it didn't turn out, but give it another go when you're back to normal and I know you can do it (I made the sunshine in a few spare minutes on a weekend with the lovely kids/husband distraction combo in full effect, so I know it can be done!)
