Naptime Productivity

Remember when I said I've been quite productive at nap time lately? Here's a peek at what I've been up to:

The rock candy isn't quite ready to eat yet. It needs another week or two...

Capri Sun pouches make great luggage tags. The ones with a clear back work well...

Another recycled bag...
This time out of an old pair of my husband's rain pants.
(This is a different pattern than before - each side of the bag is cut from one leg. I love how I was able to keep the pockets. Email me if you would like to know more about the pattern.)

Two matching hooded towels for my little ones to use at the pool...

And some gifts for one of our babysitters; she is due in November. Toddler bibs...
Burp cloths and a receiving blanket...

Have I mentioned that how much I love my serger?

Is anyone else out there having issuse with Blogger and hard returns or line spacing? I am and it is driving me crazy!

Looks like you've been quite busy! The baby things are adorable...I'm sure she'll love them! As for Blogger, I had to move to TypePad because my pictures were taking forever to load (or wouldn't load at all.) Good luck!

Wow, you have been busy. Yes, I have been having problems arranging my posts. Very frustrating but I don't know where to go to start another blog. Any ideas?

I'm jealous of how much you have accomplished...and with two small children to care for too.
How do you make your burp cloths? Looks like they have fringed edges.
The bag from the pant leg is very nice. Did you use a serger to make it? I hope to see that bag when we get together.

Hi,
Just found your blog and I love the re-use ideas you've had. Fabulous bag, such a great idea. :-)

The recycled bag is just great! Love it.

I have always been in awe of people who can sew so well it looks better than shop-bought stuff! (I can follow a pattern but it never looks right when finished, or if it does look right it never fits!)

And yes, I've been having issues with the 'compose' mode of blogger. So now I type my whole post in the HTML section, and then tweak it in 'compose' and it always works the way I want it.

The Capri Sun luggage tags are super cute!

Wow, you HAVE been busy.

Not me, I can't seem to make myself do anything productive these days. Not sure what my problem is.

Love that you made the toddler bibs, they are so handy and so hard to come by, she will surely appreciate them.

Please let me know how you did the bag from the pants. Very cute. Got a new serger and I'm scared of it.
