a little bit of craftiness

I am so excited to share this so cute, so crafty idea with you. I've been buying (and loving) iron-on patches from a super cute etsy shop, tadpole creations. I recently bought this adorable chocolate bunny, and cannot wait for it to come in so I can make Ella a sweet little bunny shirt. I like to use infant lap t-shirts for these patches and I ordered a pink one for this patch. Isn't she cute? I'll post a picture of little bean wearing it soon.

I decided to investigate making my own iron-on patches, because how hard could it be for a girl who knows how to cut, iron and sew? So after googling, I found that it is very easy with this great, free tutorial on a sweet little blog called peptogirl.blogspot.com.

Peptogirl loves all things pink and sprinkled, she says, and who among us girly girls doesn't? From her blog I found a few other great, idea-inspiring blogs that I just can't yet divulge, because my lucky March birthday girlfriends will be receiving very cute gifts I found on these sites. Curious, girls? I will post about these secret blogs at a later time...

Enjoy getting crafty, girls - well, at least Anita and Gina...

So, when can you come over and we can do this thing? without boys, of course.
