Fat Quarter Friday: Month by Month Numbers for Baby Picture

My cute sister Aubry is pregnant and her baby shower is tomorrow! I decided to whip up a set of month by month numbers so that she can take some cute pictures of little baby David each month.

Fat Quarter Friday: Jewelry Music Box

Fat Quarter Friday: Jewelry Music Box

My grandma gave me this little jewelry music box to me for maybe my 5th or 6th birthday. I love it so much that I’ve kept it for nearly 20 years. As such, it’s a little worse for wear.

FYI, we don’t give her the ones with the protein powder, just...

Fat Quarter Friday: Baby/Toddler Neck Tie

Fat Quarter Friday: Baby/Toddler Neck Tie

This is a fun a simple project to make for the little guys (or little girls who want to be Avril Lavigne) in your life. Or in my case, soon to be in my life. My sister Aubry is pregnant, and it’s a boy! The baby shower is coming up in a couple weeks and I thought I’d whip together a cute little tie, or two. These are nice because they’re adjustable so they should last as your little guy grows and they also only need a fat...
