Diaper Cake Motorcycle

Inspired by a diaper motorcycle at a friends babyshower, my sister-in-law and I created this biker baby bundle. It includes various goodies I made for the baby:

bib = mudflap
burpie = seat saddle
shoes = biker boots
crocheted hat = helmet
blanket = handbars


Something for…me

For once, I decided to make something for myself! I got inspired by this dress I came across while cruising through Pinterest (my newest obsession). This was the very first dress I’ve made – ever, so of course, I didn’t have a pattern or any clue how to make it. Needless to say, I winged the whole thing. I used one of my fitted dresses and a jacket to draw the pattern for the lining and dress. Luckily, the dress fabric doesn’t fray so I was able to cut the scallops at the ends of the dress and leave the edge raw. Start to finish, I completed the dress in one evening – 3.5 hours (Project Runway style). I was thrilled that 1. It fit. 2. It didn’t take long. 3. It looked good enough for me to wear to a wedding the following week! Hope this inspires you to make something special for YOURself!
