Decorative Pillows Tutorial

How cute are these pillows???

Ashley over at Make It and Love It designed these super cute pillows for a friend of hers, but she shares how to do it on her blog here. One of these days I am going to give them a try myself. When I do, I will totally post it on the blog (especially if they turn out cute like these!)

Ashley also has a tutorial here for these cute pillow cases. I love her choice in fabric too... I don't think I could get away with it in my home, but I may give it a try. She has several different styles of pillowcases on her blog... and I have to admit... I LOVE them all!!!

If anyone else out there has snazzy pillow cover ideas or pics, feel free to share them with us! Those of us who live in apartments can't really paint, so adding little touches like pillows and drapes are the way we can add our own personal touch to our homes!

In Need of Opinions!!!!

So I am toying with the idea of making my sweet goodies even sweeter!!! But first, I want your opinion. Tell me what you think....
I have seen store bought wash cloths wrapped up as cupcakes before, but have yet to see it done with handmade burp cloths, so I am thinking of making this my new "thing". I think they would make cute little gifts.

Cupcakes can be packaged in a cupcake box to make it look even more cupcake-y. Of course the packaging will be embellished much more than it is now with cute little tags giving the buyer the option of having the name printed on the tag or doing it themselves when they get it.

This candy roll is made using one of my large chenille blankets. I think I might use tulle instead of the plastic for the final ones.

I am just toying with the idea, but wanted to see what all of you out there thought. Is it worth it? Would you be more apt to buy with it wrapped up super cute like this? Or does it not really matter?!??

PLEASE.... let me know! thanks!!

p.s. Don't forget about our FREE give away. Entries must be received by May 25th!!!

A New Place to Find Me

My line of KdBuggie chenille blankets, burpies, and bibs now have another new home!!! In addition to "living" on Etsy, they are know making a second home at an online retailer called BellOrel Baby Boutique. You can find them here. I am SUPER excited about getting out a little more and having an opportunity for more mommy's to see my cute stuff!  Check it out when you have a chance, and tell your friends!!

BellOrel was founded by two mommies who wanted to work from home so they could raise their little ones. They created their company name by combining the names of two of their children.

New item in the works...

I am trying my hand at a crayon roll/notepad clutch.

Each one holds 10 crayons and a 4"x6" blank notepad.
I still have some fine tuning to go, but I'm hoping to have some ready to add to my store by the end of this week!!!!
They are great for times when you need your little one to stay busy but quiet. The dr.'s office, church, the car... and much more.

New Fabric... Yay!!!

Check it out! I have been waiting for this shipment. I have great plans for this lot of fabric, including some custom orders that need filling!! Look for these cute prints to show up in my store soon!

Brand New (stay put) Bibs!!!

Does your little one pull off their bib... ALL THE TIME? Here is my solution, a cheap bib that stays put! I make my bibs using metal snaps -- so baby/toddler can't pull it off.
Bib measure approximately 10" wide and 13" long.
The opening for the neck fits infants to toddlers, and even fits my 3-year-old!
They come in lots of prints, including one for all you baseball fans out there!
Check them all out here! New ones are coming out all the time!
