Sewing machine is BACK in action!!!!

So I had a crafty weekend, to say the least! Oh sewing machine, how I have missed you! Ok, I sound like a lunatic but you get the picture... it's been nuts around here! However, this weekend-- Ford was under the weather which made him super lazy; translation--- I didn't have to chase him around the house all day (heehee!) so I was able to get a few gifts completed (YAY!)! One gift for a Baby Shower (my sweet friend Melissa is having a baby boy in April (same due date Ford had!)) and my other friends Monica and Travis were owed a wedding gift (only four months late.... oops!). So needless to say I had my work cut out for me, but the finished products came out super cute! Thank you Silouhette Machine for your added "uumph!"

Here's a few pictures of my Baby Shower gift. I made onesies and burp cloths and added some Pottery Barn Swaddling Cloths. Super Cute if I do say so myself!

And then I made Monica and Travis this cute gift basket. Complete with the monogrammed napkins, guest towels, an automatic wine opener and an etched pyrex dish! 

Your probably oogling over the etched Pyrex dish ( I was too!) If you have a Silouhette this is seriously the easiest, but coolest project ever! I originally got the idea from this pin, but here's a quick tutorial if your interested in trying this yourself....

All you do is print out your desired name/design on your silouhette, then peel it out and use the stencil to stick to the pyrex, wherever you want your design. Then you take Armour Etch (you can get this at Michael's) and paint a thick coat over the stencil

Then you just let it sit for about fifteen minutes and then wash with soap and water. Remove the vinyl stencil and---- Walah! You have an etched Pyrex dish with your name on it! Never to be lost at another Pot Luck again- absolutely genius!!!!

So there you have it, this crafter is BACK in action. What do you think of my little gifts?


  1. I love, love, love these buckets! And those onesies! Adorable!

  2. Love, love, love them!!!
