Still confused and needing idea's

Last night may have been a creative breakthrough. However with all of your awesome idea's I went a little overboard.....

I started with a pieced quilted bib. Very cute but I need to come up with something to go with it....a changing pad or maybe a pacifier holder??

Next I went to an old standby, the pillowcase dress. Since I have started doing french seams with everything I can't seem to have any unfinished lines or messiness about my sewing. It's a terrible thing to be a neat freak.... This is one of my favorites and so easy to make. (compared to most things) If anyone wants one of these I will make one in your choice of fabrics...

Right back at ya babe!!

ok, ok back to the sewing. So I loved the idea of the super hero cape and just got a book (one yard wonders) with a pattern in it. Silly me though I went ahead and didn't use the pattern because I am just that stubborn. The one I came up with I am not loving. I can't seem to get past the cluttered look of an applique. Mine are also reversible and use a bit more fabric than most... I will have to tweak the pattern a bit and try again, because like I said, I love this!! (when I get it right)

Finally because you know I just don't have enough to do with five kids and one more on the way, I made a stocking for our daughter's cat.

Yep it's shaped like a fish and just the right size for that little bag of catnip from the big guy in the red suit.

I would love a pillowcase dress for Maggie in a birthday theme for her 4th birthday. Do you have any cupcake fabric? I would also love one in any asian fabric you may have for the Spring. She is almost wearing a 4T now. And maybe bows to match each one? Let me know~
