baby bird stitched art

I am noticing a trend as of late – I am constantly being drawn to crafty baby things.  i.e., the baby mobile, the fabric name art, the Bambi mod podge art… and now this!  Hmm.  I am not planning on having a baby anytime soon.  I guess I just like babies, and all the cute stuff that comes along with them!   For now, I will just treat these projects as ideas for baby shower gifts, birthdays, etc.

Enter this cute tutorial by Vanessa at Lella Boutique.  I came across this totally by chance while perusing blogland, and decided that I had to share it.

how adorable is this?!

Here, Vanessa lays out step-by-step how to make one of these beautiful little pieces to hang in a child’s room.  She even gives you a printable for this little bird pattern!  And I am really not a sewer but I feel that this would look great even without quilting the fabric.

Adding this to my list of “to do”s for sure!

fabric name art!

Lately, my latest obsession has been fabric art.  So, when saw this fabric name art at Crap I’ve Made, I decided that I have to try it out!

love the green and pink!

My niece’s 1st birthday is coming up… how adorable would something like this be?!  I’ve found out that her room colours are pink and royal blue.  I am already envisioning the cuteness!  Although I already know that there will be more cutting involved (my niece’s name has 8 letters…).

I’ll keep you posted! :)

craft night with the ladies!

A few weeks ago a friend and I were carpooling to work.  She mentioned that some other ladies from work were talking about getting together once a month for a craft night, and asked if would I be interested.  My answer?  Heck yes, I would!

The lovely lady who hosted the craft night blows me away with the beautiful things she makes.  She quilts, makes fabric art, and sews up a storm.  Really talented!  (I seriously envy her skills and her craft room.  Or, should I say, craft loft.)

So on Craft Night #1, she taught the rest of us to make canvas art.   Basically, they are fabric covered canvasses with a fabric image ironed on the front.  I couldn’t decide if I wanted to make one to hang above our coffee station, or one to hang in our bathroom, so I made both.  (Well, three. I couldn’t help it!)

Here are my creations!

These were seriously, super easy to make.  It did help that we had a very patient teacher guiding us through the steps…

Because of their simplicity and absolute cuteness, I have decided that they will make great homemade gifts, for sure!  My mind is already turning: “whose birthday is coming up next?”… “what random holiday can I find an excuse to make one of these for?” … “maybe one for every room?”  :)

Here’s to the next craft night!
