And.. so, because of the above situation, nap time was a bit off, to say the least. Brooke is usually down by 1pm. Today she went down at 1:45 b/c we were gone and then she had to eat. She slept for 3 hours, but Benjamin just couldn't fall asleep and stay asleep. But, I managed to get some stuff done anyway. Today's naptime sewing should have been me working on the blue binding for Benjamin's quilt. But.. thanks to my friend Jennifer, I had a NEW project!! SADD at it's best, folks! She asked if I had ever made freezer pop cozies. Umm.. no, I hadn't. Hadn't even heard of them.. but a little google goes a long way! So... viola! Freezer pop cozies!
First I cut several strips of fleece w/ different designs.
Then I made one to test out. Looks good! Works perfectly!
I thought I'd turn it to see what it would look like.. it looks ok, but it opens it up too much and the freezer pop isn't held in there as tightly.
So, I whipped up a few.. or 24. And, I already have 24 more pieces cut that just need to be sewn! Love it! I'm selling them in groups of 4 (mix and match patterns if you want). 4 for $5! Since I just finished them.. after 10pm.. I'll have to test one out with Brooke tomorrow!
Since he was so hot I thought I'd give Benjamin the ice pop to cool him off (not to eat.. just to hold and play with).
But, turns out he was not a fan! Poor baby!
However, he did manage to give me a sweet smile! Love him!
