I wanted to get one for my maid of honor Christina. The problem? The cost of the ones I found on Etsy were a little too much for my budget. I finally found a tutorial on how to make them. It was great because I went to Joanne Fabrics and got the material and fusible fleece for less than $4 (depending on which material I had and what the sale that week was - I made one for less than $2.50). I did all the prep work, but sadly I cannot sew. I really need to get a sewing machine and learn! I went to a coworker and asked if she would sew them for me. She was great, she has made a few for me and she keeps telling me I need to learn how to sew. I would love to learn this year - sounds like a goal to me.
I gave the first one as a Christmas gift and then when I got my camera I realized I needed one for me. But I could not make a decision with all the fabric choices so I decided to make a few more.

The Black and burgundy one will be going to Nicole Christine! She is a family friend that did our engagement photos....
and now our baby progress photos. Remember that post from a week or two ago? She did those pictures and these too...
I just saw the time and realized I really need to shower and get ready for a "going away dinner" for a friend! Oops. I am glad I got out of the staff meeting today early enough to get a good walk in!
Question of the Day:
What big goal to you have this year? I am going to say mine it to learn how to sew... I mean I could say have a baby but that is definitely going to happen :)
