I finished some last minute Easter crafts, and I've also been busy finishing up craft projects for my FSIL's baby shower this coming weekend. So here they are:
Up first, some mixed media Easter bunting and fleece PEEPS! I had seen the Fleece Peeps at Dandelions and Lace and decided I MUST do them for Easter gifts. The first one turned out not so great, so it went to Matron on Honor NM's two huskies (who I love sosososososo much).
This is Bandit. He's my favorite. Kiera would not sit still long enough for me to take a picture.
Both patterns here. I added two plastic eggs that I covered with various materials. Then a paper fan and a saying I cut out with the trusty Cricut.
Onnnn to the Quilt. This was a labor of love for my future niece. I had started to knit a blanket and then scrapped the idea because it just wasn't good enough. So I was back to square one. I was going through my stash, saw some of this material together and was inspired.
I like when Quilts are three-dimensional. Babies especially like this because it's like built-in toys to play with. So I added fleece butterflies and crushed velvet yo-yo style flowers.
Close up of the yo-yo style flowers. Mr. ST's mom gave me a large tin of buttons a few years ago. They belonged to Mr. ST's Bachi (grandmother in polish) and he was SUPER close with her. I decided to use the bottons on the flowers to share something of Bachi's with our future niece Gabby.
Three dimensional butterflies.
I just wanted to share one more craft - my mom made everyone Easter themed flower yo-yos.
Hope everyone had a great Easter and Spring Break!!!
