Baby Blanket Gift

I wanted to make a different blanket than the other I had been making. So I made this Striped blanket. It was easy and turned out so nice and soft. I also gave her a new  mom survival kit. I saw one online like  so I created a similar one.

Super Hero Capes & Masks

I had seen this on pinterest and wanted to make the boys capes and masks for the super hero party a friend was throwing. So the night before I got out some fabric and felt and got to it. I printed off  lightning and letters and traced them on a cereal box to use to as a tracing template. Then placed the templates on the felt to trace and then cut out. Next I used a iron on adhesive to iron them to the capes which are jersey knit fabric that I cut out freehand and attached velcro the the neck(you could also just tie them on). I used elastic and thicker/stiffer felt for the masks. I traced them also and then cut out. They boys seemed to really like them and Gavin is still playing with his almost a year later.

Fruit Salad

This an awesome fruit salad recipe I got from my sister....always gets lots of compliments and is super easy to throw together quickly. You slice peaches and add green grapes sliced in half and black berries and some mint leaves chopped up. A little while before you serve it you can add a little sugar to get the juices flowing from the fruit.
