Move Over Willy Wonka!

Do you ever see something that makes you amazed and inspired and at the same time blows your mind into insanity? Such is this Candyland post at Bakerella. You absolutely must check it out. It would have taken me at least 2 years to put together a party like this! I just can't even get my head around it. And read about how much of it is handmade! Wowzers. She must be the bride of Willy Wonka!Photos from Pin It

By special request, here is my recipe for a yummy jello dish. It's better than it sounds, trust me.

1 lrg box or 2 small boxes of Raspberry Jello
1 c applesauce

Disolve jello in the amount of water called for on the box (2 cups). Don't add cold water. Add frozen raspberries, then applesauce. Chill.

It's that simple, and surprisingly delicious. Try it. Pin It

Car Seat Canopy for Heidi

Here is the carseat canopy I made for Heidi several weeks ago. I rounded the corners on this one so they don't drag. Heidi came with me to pick out the cute fabric.

Diaper Clutch: Lauren

Boy is it hard to find time to sew now. I managed to squeak this one in for Lauren's baby shower gift. A diaper clutch (portable changing pad/diaper & wipes holder) and burp cloth. I also included a cute little headband with a bow and a binkie clip (pacifier included). Too bad I didn't get pictures of those too...
This time I made the clutch with soft flannel on the inside, a layer of batting for cushioning, and vinyl exterior to prevent leakage should the baby decide to pee on it during the diaper change. (Speaking from experience here.) There is an inside pocket to secure the wipes and a diaper or two, so they don't slide out the sides. It is washable, of course. It turned out a little wide for portability-- I think next time I will make it narrower. Pin It
