Craftiness

Let me start this post by saying that I love crafts and craftiness in general. I am not very good at sewing, but getting better. I am not great at a lot of things, but I LOVE making wipey cases and am good at it. I always try very carefully to make them to the best of my abilities and with great care. I have thought about expanding my products, making more than one item. Sometimes I think it's a good idea, sometimes I just want to keep doing what I am doing and leave it at that. BUT, I have really toyed with the idea of at least sewing other things/making other things simply for myself or as gifts, etc. and have tried doing cute birp cloths for a while. Well, I should say a few months ago I tried making a few and I just couldn't seem to keep my lines straight. But I practiced and now am pretty decent. It's just a simple stitch, but I want it to be absolutely straight! So I put together a little trio of birp cloths for my friend having triplets to give her with her wipey case and they turned out cute. No, I don't plan on selling these...at least not for now. I just think they are cute and fun to give to someone, especially when a lot of my friends already have wipey cases, so now I can give them something else to go with it! ;)

I made a cute little tag that did not photograph well "Made for you by Lizzy Luu."
Two girl ones I made that turned out cute.
The three boy ones I made for my friend.
Here's one unrolled, so you can see what it looks like.
All three together laid out. Now isn't that cuter than a plan old birp cloth??
Sew fun! (Get it?!?!!) Can't wait to sew a few more! ;)

Ok you seriously need to have another kid since you OBVIOUSLY have waaaay too much time on your hands to do all sorts of amazing things. Actually, just come over here and use some of that extra energy to clean my house. That would be a GREAT use of your time!
