Baby Boy--Tie Onesie

    I have been working on a gift basket for my friend who is having a baby shower tomorrow.  She is having a boy. I think that baby girl things are so much easier than baby boy things.  No pink, no ruffles, no bows....what to do?!?!   I have seen cute tie onesies for boys lately so I decided to give one a try.  I ironed wonder-under on the fabric I was using and then just hand drew my tie onto the back of the wonder-under before cutting it out.  I made 2 parts, one is the "knot" and the other the tie hanging down.  After you have the tie cut out you just peel the backing off the wonder-under and iron the tie on to the onesie--so easy!  I then sewed around the edge of the tie to keep it stuck to the onesie.
    I have heard good things about the wonder-under, but I have to say I wasn't impressed.  I found it hard to get the backing off and then I had trouble getting it to stick when I ironed it.  The project turned out fine, I just wasn't impressed with the stuff.  Maybe I did something wrong??

   I can't wait to give this to the mom-to-be!

With Love to Mom--Part 2--Table Runner

I promised a picture of the table runner I made my mom.  Click here to see Part 1 where I shared the place mats and history of the fabric/project.
Here is a picture of one of the quilt squares I used for this project.

And the finished table runner...(My table is shorter than my mom's so it will look a little better).

And one last picture of the table runner and place mats. (yikes, someone should really use the iron on projects before taking pictures!)

A student wrote this last week in her journal while I was subbing.  I will just ignore the fact that she wrote basically the same things about her friend the day before. ;)

Can you see that I am totally rocking the purple braids in that picture?!?!
