Baby Wardrobe dividers

Monday, November 27, 2017

I needed to get a gift recently for a baby shower and decided that I would make some of these baby wardrobe dividers. 

Instead of designing the wardrobe dividers myself, I decided to purchase some printables from Etsy from a shop called JennaCaseyDesigns


I decided to make the dividers matching on each side, so I printed each divider twice so I could glue them together before laminating. 

Once I had printed the dividers, I cut them out and laminated them to make them stronger. 

The dividers needed a hole in them so they could hang on the wardrobe rail. These were a bit tricky to cut out as the perfectionist in me wanted them perfect! I also cut a slot to allow you to hang the dividers on the rail.

One thing I did realise was that I cut the laminate to short on the sides of the dividers, so they started to come apart, so I had to glue them to keep them together. 

The dividers were so cute as they had lovely woodland animals on them and were a set of 8 dividers which were labelled Newborn, 0-3 months, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 18 months and 24 months. 

They were a cute little set to give as a gift.

Card Friday 24.11.2017

Friday, November 24, 2017

I haven't made that many cards recently but one I did make was a 1st anniversary card. 

I love using the Kraft card for cards and this one was 5 x 7 inches. 

I decided to just use a smaller strip of patterned paper and also used a flower die cut embellishment for the centre with some gems to add dimension. 

Between the paper and the embellishment, I added a white heart to help the flower stand out. 

For the sentiment, I created it by using different stamps together so I could add the 1st as well. I stamped them on a stitched rectangle die cut as the stitching adds more pattern.

As the main focus was down the centre of the card, I added some white and clear sequins to add more texture.

The card is quite a simple design but I don't think it needed anything more on it as sometimes it is easy to make it too complicated.

Star Name Garland.

Monday, November 20, 2017

Recently my niece asked me to make a name garland for my little nephew, to hang on his wall. 

I made one for my other little nephew which you can see here. I made it using large felt letters and adding little stars and trains to them.

This time I decided to use stars which I then added the letters of his name to the stars.

I decided to keep the letters all the same colour and went for dark grey felt. Then chose white, light blue and light grey felt for the stars.

On the other garland I added some filling inside but this time I decided to keep them flat. 

I hand stitched all the letters and the stars together instead of machine stitching them, that's just what I prefer to do.

To create the garland, I chose a thin white ribbon to attach the stars to. I decided to glue the stars on the ribbon and sewed them on to make them more secure.

As I decided to use his middle name as well as his first name, I added a plain star in between the names to separate them.

I didn't have the dies to die cut the shapes this time, so I printed off a shape of a star and the letters off Microsoft Word and then used them as a template to cut the stars and letters out. 

I really like how simple but effective the garland looks and makes a lovely gift.
