Jadens pre-school Valentine treats

OK, so I went a little overboard. :oD
Well this is Jadens very first Valentines Day party after all.
It has a "Love Monster" finger puppet, mini M&M's, 3 Hershey Kisses, 4 conversation hearts, little valentine eraser and a paper heart.
The only problem was that there are 20 kids in his class so this was quite a bit of work.
I'm just proud that I actually got it all done before midnight the night before! that is so the normal me.

Assembly line creating.

I guess I get that from my mother.

Cut them all, sew them all, attach eyes to them all. And as soon as you can roar you're done!

Roar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Happy Valentines Day!

Now this is better

I wanted to get a new "girlie" infant car seat for my new baby girl that's due next month but it's not really a need it thing , just a want it thing. :)
I looked all over the internet for a pattern or instructions on how to do this and only found a universal pattern for about $14 that looked a little more trouble then it was worth so I just took the buckles off and washed/dried the pad and canopy (it had been in the garage for a year and a half... yuck!)
After that I layed it down and traced it onto some paper. I have an old ugly sheet that I used to make an initial mock of the cover and it fit fine! I was really suprised that it worked right the first time actually! LOL
This fabric I bought to make her a blanket with from a quilt shop with a matching pink polkadot flannel for the back, I like to make the 1 1/4 yard square blankets but this will be more useful I think.
I have just enough left over to make a Binky Blanket and maybe a burp cloth to match.
I have more pictures at flickr if you want to take a look here.
Happy crafting!
