I thought that this was a great way to remember how big or small their hand was on thanksgiving! Great for scrapbooking! My little girl didn't complain at all when I was tracing her hand, watched me do it. I love this, and am so glad I thought of it! :)

Going through all the old pictures, I found myself wanting to cry. My baby girl is growing up so fast right before my eyes and soon she wont be the tiny little baby that wants mommy all the time :( It was fun scrapbooking though, feels good to start on it again!

So for my daughters first Christmas, I decided to make her an ornament! It didn't come out quite like I thought it would but I am still pleased with it. It is a baby dressed up in a Santa suit holding a present in its arms :) I think the hardest thing was it's face, though I'm still not close to perfect when faces are concerned, slowly but surely they are getting better! :)

Using some old fabric I have, I first made a tiny square stencil so my squares would be around the same size
I then cut out a square
Did it 6 times
The took the first two squares and sewed them together with a simple stitch.
One more block and we will be ready to sew it into a block.
It's taking shape! :)
What it looks like on the inside
Now what it looks like on the outside. Put cotton in it and then close it up and block is all done. Do this till you have the number of blocks you want.
I decided to make these because I realized how expensive the cloth blocks are in stores (some up to $20+). So I wanted to make it homemade and cheap and there it is.
