Thursday

Keeping myself busy...

Gordon has been working late A LOT lately... so what is a girl to do... CRAFT!!
I've started a little business with Gord's niece Lindsey {so excited!!}
We will be launching our blog in the next couple weeks with a fun GIVEAWAY!!

In the meantime I have LOTS to do...
This isn't really part of the business, but it was a fun little distraction for today.
Super easy...
Grab a onesie {this one is 3-6 months}
Heat n Bond paper
Material for the tie
then draw a little tie template
Trace the pieces onto the Heat n Bond paper {I always hold my pieces up to a window}
Then cut around the outside so you don't waste too much material.
Lay your template on the WRONG side of the fabric and iron
Cut out your pieces on the lines you've drawn
Peel off the backing of the Heat n Bond and iron the pieces onto the onesie
{make sure you tuck the tail up under the top piece before ironing}
Then... if you are OCD like me... sew around the outside just to make sure it doesn't go anywhere
{Start in the upper Left hand corner of each piece, then you don't have to stop and start more than twice}
[For an even better tutorial go HERE]
All done!
This is for a little guy attending a wedding in a couple weeks...
Colors: Hot Pink and Zebra {love it!}
Happy 4th Everyone!!
