Cowboy Baby Blanket and Babies



Juans sister is having a baby. I feel like everyone and their mother are having babies! I am jealous! I love babies... Like almost as much as those Octuplets Mom... She takes the cake for the love of babies... 14... Holy mother! I watched the dateline interview with her and she seemed like she really loves her kids... BUT HELLO!!! Shes fucking BROKE! She was living off student loans and her disability... Now those are all dried up she has nothing.... The lady hit it on the head when she was interviewing her... She's selfish. Don't worry crazy lady... California will pay for your 14 children! The only thing that really bothered me about the interview was they were getting on the Doctors and her case about implanting 6 embryos. Well as I was watching I was thinking about John and Kate plus Eight... They had twins first, then they went for a second go and ended up with SIX kids... None of them are identical twins so that means 6 or more embryos were implanted in Kate... Right? So it must not be that uncommon... I thought it was funny that they were calling the octuplet Mom an Angelina Jolie wanna B... So true! The most hilarious part was Angelina said she was "creeped out" by her.... WTF!!! Angelina Jolie is fucking creepy! She has the same addiction... Babies! I just think something is totally off with Angelina... At first she was doing it all right, now she is becoming a "collector" of human babies... Who knows. At least she has the money to take care of them.

Okay I totally went off on a rant there... I want 6 kids so maybe I am just as creepy as the rest of them! hahah! ANYWAYS! I made this blanket for Juans sister who is having a boy. I love love love love the cowboy flannel. Its so adorable! Don't you think? I used some of the minky I bought almost 4 years ago... Its ssssooo Soft! I'm not sure if she will like it because I was asking her if she has a "theme" (nautical, jungle, Winnie the pooh, dogs etc) She wrote me back and said she doesn't have a theme but Winnie the Pooh sounds fine... WTF? NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! That's lame! SO I did the total opposite of what she asked for and did cowboy... Is that bad? I don't make "typical baby" things, Pooh bear can be for the people who will just be buying her stuff...

I also am going to make her some onesies (Of course, It will say Mom instead of Dad)

I also was looking at some other cool things like this covered wet wipe case! More info how to make them here. They are really popular in Southern California in the posh boutiques.


I also wanted to make her a sling. Some are selling for $70 on Etsy!!! So I decided I can make one I am trying to find the right pattern but I found this wonderful Tutorial for one...
Here is a BBBEEAAUUUTIFUL one she made

I'm trying to figure if it will be too difficult for me. OHHH GGGRRRRAAAANNNDDDMMMAAA! Besides if she doesn't use it I'll be so mad I spent all that time making it. So I was thinking of making just the normal O ring sling. Who knows.... I am making a million things! HAHAHAHA Anyways... The only things that I've made so far is the onesie and the blanket... The baby isn't due till July 4th! I have some time.... If you guys have any super cute ideas please send them MY WAY!!!

I agree that Angelina Jolie is a baby collector! How creepy, right?

If you had 14 kids, I would give you major kudos.... I deal with classrooms of 12 preschoolers and feel as if I am losing my mind most days!

Something I really found useful with my daughter so much so that I've kept it for the last 4.5 years is one of those shopping cart things. Not the one that paranoid people use to keep germs off their kids, but the one that support the child in the card and is padded with those styrofoam ball thingys. Do you have any idea what I'm talking about? I love the cowboy theme. Hmmm, sad that maybe your genius could be wasted on someone who is ok with pooh.

The blanket is adorable!! I'm really peeved with the angelina wannabe, the creepy thing is they look similar! It's funny that she's broke and doesn't have a job but she has a publicist. And I heard she was asked to do a reality show & write a book, so she'll have money soon.

I can't wait to see what baby things you make!!

that blanket is adorable..I know my friends with kids never ever have enough diaper rags or bibs. I bought a ton to make. I used to want 10 kids, not so much anymore.

Also embroidering and appliqueing cloths like crazy...I'm baby nutty too especially for the nieces and nephews!
