My daughter’s closet as a baby. I took the door off too. The room was teeny.
J woke me up at 4am last night and I got on Pinterest so I wouldn’t fall asleep in his bed. Whaddya know — that was a stupid idea. I just couldn’t sleep.
What do I do when I can’t sleep? I craft. Lucky this was an easy one.
What you’ll need (this is for an 8inch stuffed lovie; would have to modified to fit an 18-inch doll)
portable changing pad with vinyl backing
burp cloth/cloth diaper
monogrammed burp cloth
piece of fleece
It’s that easy. I sewed the fleece and vinyl together, with the old cloth diaper in the middle as the batting. The dishtowel was the blanket, and the monogrammed part of the burp cloth is the pillow.
This is the back:
L loves it. Success!
Guess what I just found cleaning out closets!
I had thought about making L’s 2nd birthday party a Blue’s Clues party and doing a little mystery. I created these scenes just by paper piecing to imitate the blues clues style.
Adding paw prints and a mailbox!
The kids are too old for this now
.. Wonder what to do with the paper scenes?
1 can store-bought coconut-pecan frosting (like this one from Duncan Hines)
3 eggs (for cake mix)
stick of butter (for cake mix; depends on directions but you won’t need the entire stick)
1 can crushed pineapples
1 cup coconut flakes
1 can whipped topping (like Cool Whip)
Follow the directions on the cake mix package for two 9 inch round pans, except skip the water
Mix in coconut flakes and crushed pineapples. Bake in two 9 inch round pans.
Poke holes in the bottom layer to allow frosting to seep in. Cover bottom layer in store -bought coconut-pecan frosting and add top layer.
Ice with Cool Whip/whipped frosting.
L has this set from pottery barn, except we got it from consignment for cheap. I wanted to get something similar for J but didn’t want to spend the money.
Enter adhesive magnetic sheets and a few pictures cut out from a catalog.
The pottery Barn catalog, incidentally, was a great source and I found quite a few cars for the collection.
