I thought I would direct you to a few cool things that I have seen out in the world of blogs since the things I am making aren't quite done and need to be under wraps for a bit.  That sounds like I am on a secret craft mission, but that isn't the case...just have to wait to give the gift before I do some show and tell. Also, all the birthdays are winding down around here.  Still have Father's Day and a few more brother/nephew birthdays which are all so much harder to craft for.  Sorry boys.  For Father's Day this year it is just a nice sentimental card.

Okay let the tour directing begin (you know I did study that in college...really!)  

1 - Showing much bias, here is my mom's blog where she has made up a pattern (but yet to reveal) for the Darcy bag.  So cute and I love all the pockets.  Go leave her a comment telling her you want the pattern for it!  

2 - Kristen at fiddlehead has an adorable pattern for a little girls top that she created by looking at one of her daughter's gymboree shirts.  Check out the side bar for the downloadable pdf.   And, she has another girl's top that she has created for her daughter that is just as cute using one of her own patterns as well.  

3 - Rea at Made By Rea has made one of the cutest yet quickest bags called the Lickity Split Bag which is even reversible.  She is asking whether you would spend a little money to get the pattern. Go see it and comment "that of course you would." 

4 - Check out the martha stewart craft of the day from yesterday - the petit collages.  So cute and the best thing is that she provides the templates for these animals and what great appliques they would make.  

Okay, that was a short tour, but it was all about quality not quantity for this one.  On a non related note - I am addicted to the breyers carb smart almond bars, I got some new pj patterns last night, more fabric for the shirt, but now I think I want it for a skirt, and tonight I am going to this if you can believe.

Thanks for the great summary - I love your mom's bag too (we're also big P&P fans!). It's so nice to discover new blogs and projects this way - I'd normally never stumble across them:)

Do you happen to know of a cute bloomer pattern out there, like not just one that covers a diaper but maybe with a little longer legs? I just love reading all of your ideas, I just wish I could figure out how to sew, I end up getting my mom to sew for me.

Thanks for the heads up! I LOVE those animals too, so I'm definitely going to have to get my applique on. :)

So funny, when I saw those collages they reminded me of you--esp. that cute owl!

Hope you are having a good summer!

Thanks for the props! Love that owl from MS! And o . m . g . you rock for admitting that you going to Dora the Explorer LIVE, we need to make a support group for those of us who caved to licensed cartoon characters and have no regrets...
