Who better to model my turkey onesies than my little "Pumpkin Pie" and my little "Butterball"!!
And they are modeling them while lying on Eli's "Magic Blankie", which brings me to the next project.
Magic Blankie all started when Eli fell in love with my Care Bear Rainbow Blanket I bought special to bring to the hospital when I delivered my "Rainbow" Twins. He would snuggle with it and stop crying instantly...and he cried non stop for 3 months..so..that blankie really was "Magic"! The blanket was a little big and started to pill a little more after each washing. I decided to make my own Magic Blankie for each of the boys. Of course it had to be made out of the softest, cuddliest fleece I could find. We love owls at our house and Ezra really digs polka dots..so it was simple!
Owl print on one side and brown and white polka dots on the other! While at the cutting counter at Joanns a woman looked at my pile of fabric then at the twins in the stroller than back at me.."When do you have time to sew?" she asked. I giggled and said "I don't know". I had to hand stitch their initial on the corner so I would know who's was who's. Ya..both my boys have matching initials..so.. E for Eli and Ez for Ezra. Done! They love them!
It's starting to get pretty chilly and my little creatures need to stay warm when we are out and about. Since snowsuits and bulky coats are not safe to wear in the car seat I decided to make a car seat blanket that I came across on Pinterest. It has open slits in the back for the buckles to go through, so the boys can be swaddled after they are safely buckled. Here it is in the car seat.
Snug as a bug!! or 2! I made a hood on the top of each blanket to keep them extra warm. I have to say they look pretty adorable all swaddled in there! Two sets of eyes peeking at me through the owl fabric...yes..we used owl flannel. Whooooo can resist!! Hahahaa! Ok..enough with the owls. I also bought more flannel in green polka dots for Eli and blue polka dots for Ezra..(of course)..to make them each another one.
My sister in law and I decided to paint some pottery for our 3 boys for their 1st Thanksgiving and 1st Christmas. I think we will try to make something for each 1st holiday. Here is what I made for the twins...
