A few years ago, when I was first married, every ward I went to had you fill out a questionare asking: What are your hobbies?
I always left this blank because I felt watching movies in my jammies and shopping were not the "typical" response. So over the years I have tryed to fill in that blank space with things I LOVE to do and so here you have it.... some of my hobbies!

I am such a fan of anything Amy Butler makes! She inspires me with her fabric and patterns. This was the first Amy Butler project I ever did- The birdie sling. I love it because it is a huge bag and works so well as a diaper bag. I did make my own smaller version of the bag (the purple one) and it's fun for those times I go out without 15 diapers. *Nicole, stole the top pic off your blog!*
These are so fun. I started seeing a lot of these a year ago and wanted to make some. Over Here is a great tutorial. Super cute under a skirt or great for cushioning those little knees that are learning to crawl!
As opposed to the crayon roll-up, I made some crayon aprons. I have had my daughter take hers to church many times so that we keep her dress (and the bench fabric) crayon free, and I don't have the people behind me handing me strays every 5 minutes!
You know when you make something you love and you have to re-create it 14 other times in 14 other ways? A few months ago I had an owl fetish. This top one is on a little girls apron and the bottom owl is appliqued on my daughters shirt. Super easy project using felt and a lot of "leftovers"- scraps, ricrac and buttons.
This bag is a great beginner sewer bag. I got the tutorial here. This one was made for Ellie's teacher for the last day of school. I love it because it opens so wide, I think I am gonna make these again for my kiddo's, they would make GREAT library bags!!
I saw these online a few months ago and had to make them pronto!! I love them, and they are so easy to make. I highly recommend them for girls that have fine hair, (like my girls, go figure-I am covered in it) The felt helps hold the hair in place and not slip.
Baby showers galore! I have two friends that are having baby girls around the same time. I love making stuff for little girls! So I made Rachel's baby girl a rag quilt...
The pictures are dark because it was so late when I finished! And, I just posted this on my family blog, but I made Amie some girl stuff for her first baby girl... The flowers on the handle are clips, I have a tutorial on those coming soon.
Thanks for stopping by my hobby blog! Grandma.........Mom....and maybe a cousin or two! This is a record mostly for me but please come and feel free to make this stuff for you and yours!! Also, I love seeing what others make, so if you have a fun project you just did or a tutorial you want to share, submit it to me!! I would love to post it for others to see or try.
