I had 2 baby showers this month! One was for a little girl on the way…..and it was very exciting because it was OWL themed! And ya’ll know how much I love owls!!

I made this little owl taggie toy for a gift a long with some other store bought items.  So this was the only DIY project….I blame time.Owl Taggie

The second baby shower was for a little boy on the way.  Since I was on the “taggie” kick I made a basketball taggie blanket.  Along with a basketball pacifier clip attached to an awesome basketball pacifier! I added some great athletic socks and this little guy is the next future hoop star!

I discovered something super awesome! (thank you Pinterest)  Felt sticks to felt!!!! Yes, you heard me.  This is great for little AvaMarie.  So after this great revelation I made her a little felt Christmas tree. Any felt ornaments will stick to the tree! Of course AvaMarie likes to just shake them all off…but I have fun putting them back on 🙂Felt TreeIMG_20131209_123727_098

For all my girl friends, I made little “sophisticated” flower hair clips. (As opposed to the baby felt ones I make for AvaMarie) They are super easy and can be cute with a side messy bun or something! The basics of how to make the flower are here. Then you simply attach them to a clip rather than a stretchy headband.
