I've decided to set up an Etsy Account, and start listing some items that I make to sell. I have set up a link to my blog as well, so all you have to do is click on it, and it will take you to my store. I haven't posted anything in my store yet, but am hoping to do so in the next week or two. I need to get all my pictures rounded up, and make descriptions for them all.
I hope you will check it out! Tell your friends about it as well! I have labeled it on my blog Wheeler Creations, but you can find it by wheelerde, which is my username. Here is my website also, http://wheelerde.etsy.com

I got some material for free from Sarah at www.wallypop.net. I have this DINO print, and figured Jeremiah would love a pair of new pajama pants. He is currently wearing them right now, and he doesn't want to take them off!!! It's too cute! I've been making so many things for Danica lately. I knew that Jeremiah needed some things also. Oh, and according to him, I am the "best" pants maker ever!

It's hard to get a good picture of a toddler with the new soakers I made. She is always on the go! The green soaker is the size large, and the pink striped one is the extra large. I must say, when I made the extra large I thought it was going to be WAY too big. But it's not too bad. I know that it will fit her for a long time to come, so that's good. Plus, isn't that tooshie cute! Who couldn't resist taking a picture. Hehehe!!!
I had two wool sweaters that were sitting waiting for something to be done to them. So I decided to make them into wool soakers and wool longies. I got the soaker pattern from Katrina's Quick Sew Soaker, which I have a link for if you scroll to the bottom of the page. The longies, I used the arms of the sweater, cut down to where the crotch would be, and then sewed the two pieces together. I then added some elastic in as well at the top. I think they turned out pretty good!!

I got this pattern from the Celtic Cloth Website for a mini wet bag. I made two of them within a matter of 30 minutes. They are so easy to make, and I have many ideas for them. I used leftover fabric from my diapers. It's just one layer of PUL that I sewed, and then I also serged around the edge for extra reinforcement. I know that one of the two I made will be used as my pads wet bag, and the other one will be in the diaper bag, as an extra bag to have around.
Here are some new cloth pads to fill my stash a bit more. They need to be snapped still, but look at the colors! I never thought in a million years that I would like using cloth pads, but they aren't that bad. They're comfortable, easy to use, and very convenient as well. Plus, no more trips to the store when I run out, I just pop them into the washer and dryer, and we are good to go!!!
I bought a serger from my aunt for $40!!! What an amazing deal for me. I am so excited about having my own serger now to do all the sewing I need. I've now serged more wipes for Danica, and also two diapers that were waiting to be serged. It's amazing what you can do when you have the right tools.

I just read on a friend's blog that she is going to make things for the first five people who post on her blog. I already love the items she makes, so I figure, what the heck! I'm hoping that I'm one of the first five. The only catch was I had to post it on my blog as well. So, here's my posting. Not sure what else I have to do in it. :)
I shall see what happens...

I have decided to help someone out for Lent this year. Instead of fasting and giving something up, she is going to sew dresses instead. I have opted to help out as well, as this seems like something I can do, and it sounds like fun. Plus, I get to help keep clothes on the backs of little girls. When I make them I will post pictures of my finished products so you can see what I did.
