The table all in pink of course!
(my littlest thought that was digusting! 3 yrs olds..gotta love them!)
Welcome table..flowers made of little baby socks! So cute!
Do you see them?
Pumpkin Apple muffins, banana nut muffins, bagels and fresh fruit were enjoyed. And those
cute little diaper cups filled with M&M's are actually fabric dipped in parrafin wax..a sweet lady brought those...need to learn how to make those!
Can't wait to see her new baby girl soon to arrive!

This time around I tackled this pillow found by my talented friend, Sarah, from The Yellow Cape Cod and her adorable nursery design board found here.
Isn't this pillow adorable!
Print it out onto freezer paper. I got mine here. I've also used wax paper and it works too..
Cut out the silhouette. Remove the center and discard. Place freezer paper silhouette cut out onto your fabric. Just make sure the shiny side of freezer paper is face down on top of your fabric. Cut your fabric 1 inch larger than your pillow form for the front and for the back add a about 4 to 6 inches longer in width to make an envelope closure. The freezer paper adheres to your fabric so when you paint the inside the paint doesn't bleed through..it's wonderful stuff!
Now that it's all ironed down..you want to paint the inside. Here's mine...
Wait for it to dry. Then peel off the wax paper.
Now back to your cut fabric...the fabric piece that is 4 to 6 inches wider..cut it in half. Iron and hem two sides. Pin front and back of pillow overlapping hemmed edges as done here. ( hemmed edges will face center) Sew and trim edges..turn inside out!
And here she is.....

Some great items that would be great for the boy's room: The stacking baskets for between their desks for all the paper clutter that they have from homework! The cool P.E. clock would be awesome on one of their walls.
In the baby's room I'd love to have that turquoise shelf for baskets of baby toys and books! I want it bad! Check out the cute "A"! The turquoise ruffled curtains are pretty cute too! I think I am going batty for turquoise..weird!
Then I spied the ruffled bathroom shower curtain and thought of my friend with 4 girls who wants to redo her bathroom..this would be SO cute! If you haven't had a chance to check out Urban Outfitters they have some really cute or should I say cool stuff.

After a little shopping trip to Joann's I scored some turquoise linen fabric 60% off and knew this would be the perfect project for it.
Here's how I did it...
For those of you that don't have a fancy cutter..you can simply print out a word and carefully cut it out. My font is Clementine Sketch.
Once cut out I simply cut it out of the fabric I wantedThen measure your pillow form. I used one that my sister gave me. Thanks sis!
Cut out your fabric (in my case the turquoise linen) about an inch larger on each side for one side of the pillow and about 4 inches larger on two sides on the second piece. You will have on piece for the front and one piece for the back. This larger piece will be cut in half to make an envelope..I love envelope pillows!
Now that it is dry, place the front fabric with the wording facing up. Then place the hemmed two pieces right sides together overlapping to fit front fabric with heming facing in or in the middle. Pin and sew around all edges...because you cut it about an inch larger than your pillow you will sew a 1" seam.
Trim your corners.
Turn inside out and stuff your pillow inside..Viola!
