Making Stuff


I have been in a creative frenzy. I started making these little changing pads/random absorbent baby items for my adoption friends. They are made out of cloth diapers. I sewed some fancy fabric to it, added a tie and then quilted it all together. I have no general purpose in mind for it- but I figured they looked like cute and handy items.

I also made a slew of tea cozies for some friends. The pattern came from this awesome craft blog. I am a huge fan of her patterns. They are super easy to read and follow. I love her aesthetic. I am a big big fan.

Here is a close up:


And finally I made Davy an Elephant. It’s also from the Retro Mama website. I think I am going to do the bunny next. This was a pretty challenging project for me and I am very please with the way it came out. We call him Timothy, Timothy Olyphant. Not bad considering that i have also been working full time over the last two weeks. At least I am being productive. I am so thankful that i have all of this craftiness to keep me sane. Seriously, Dunno know I would do without all of this stuff.

  1. Love this sewing, Lisa!! The colors and the patterns are just lovely. Great idea for the changing pads!! Sending lots of love you way, my friend.

  2. Lisa,
    I love the things you created here. You must start put some of it out there to sell. It’s original and you should venture out with this. I’m telling you that people will eat it up. You’ve got a creative gene and you need to run with it.
