The Incredible Egg

There are so many fun and different ways to decorate eggs for Easter.  I don't exactely remember where I say this idea, probably another blog.  But it is very simple:
Plastic Eggs
Fabric Strips
Modge Podge
Wax Paper
As with any other modge podge project, coat the egg with modge podge, lay a strip of fabric on the egg and start coating it with modge podge.  I snipped little notches/cuts down both sides of the 1/2" fabric strips so they would lay flat.  Happy Easter!

Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep...

Can you tell that is says 'NOAH'?  It is a my first attempt to use Wonder Under and applique, I don't think I did too bad.  And all that really matters is that Noah loves his name on his pillowcase.
If you read our family blog you will know that Noah, our 2 year old, has graduated to a toddler bed but has yet to sleep a full night in it.  We have been trying little tricks to make his 'big' boy bed extra special, and I get to try out some new sewing.  Anyone else doing a little sewing these days?
