Busy, Crafting Week

This week has been filled with lots of craft projects.

This Saturday is a baby shower for my sister in law at my house so I have been busy cleaning and doing some decorating. I'm not doing a lot of decorating, but here's a look at what I've done so far.

I attempted my first sewing project this week and thanks to this tutorial, it turned out really well.  Here's a look at the fabrics I used. I'll have to post the finished product after the shower. I never knew choosing fabrics could be as fun as choosing paper!

With the scraps of fabric, I decided to embellish some onesies. I used the my Silhouette to cut out the shapes. Love that it cuts fabric. Tonight I'm going to hand stitch around the fabric elements to make sure they are secure.

My friend Hillary started a Pinterest group and today was our first meeting. The plan for the group is to meet once a month and make a craft that we've found on Pinterest. Today our project was based on this tutorial. Hopefully I will share the finished project tomorrow.

We met around lunchtime and can brought food to share that we made with recipes found on Pinterest. I made this Pesto Cream Cheese Bake.

Hope your week is going well!
