Oh, SilverMoon!!  I totally had the same thought about making a rainbow one Smiley  That may be my next button cuff endeavor after the yellow and green and 2nd blue ones I already have pulled out.  I also have a pink one that I need to assemble and put a closure on.

I have decided I like the rubber band closure on the button cuffs better than the velcro in the end of things Tongue  I stand corrected after having said I was sure I'd like the velcro better.  I have to leave too much empty space at each end to make sure I can sew on the velcro and I don't like having that open space as much as I thought.  When using the elastic closure, I just need to make sure I leave 2 equally sized, evenly placed buttons on one end so that it doesn't make the the ends crooked.

I had to add a sharktopus to my list at the request of my son. Ever since I showed him one on here he has been hounding me to make him one. I am going to attempt it next payday.

Oh! I love the button cuffs... My mom just donated a bag o buttons to my craft room, this may have to join my list  Grin

The puuuurrrrple catbot for the office manager, I made it sit and it has a magnet in it's butt since it will be her crafting pin buddy.

And the bracelet I made MYSELF, which I wore to ballet last night with a shrug I crocheted myself....pics to follow

And now I'm pretty darn proud of myself for conquering uploading photos from my new Ipad2 that my dad just spoiled me with

So I finally finished something for ME! I crocheted my self a baseball cap. I made my new nephew a fishermans hat although I decided to go back and fan out the frilly edging I made. I also stenciled my Sister's baby boys diaper bad. Her and the babies daddy are cowboy fans so I personalized it instead of spending the $80 on a plain Cowboys NFL Bag. Pictures for proof.  Tongue

Here's the hat and a thumbnail of the little cutie wearing it. Only he doesn't look too happy about it.

I've cleaned my mini gourds and will be drilling some holes and cleaning the insides a bit tomorrow. I have finally decided to gather mine and DH's tshirts to start putting together out Tshirt Quilt. I'm sure it will sew up fast. I will count the 1st two and I still have half of April to cross off the rest of my mini list. 

I love all the stuffies especially that guitar! Those button cuffs are beautiful. Congrats on your gorgeous new home Lafemme.

Thanks everyone!  I spent all last night at work drawing out possible furniture arrangements in my notebook. Smiley  And we haven't even had the home inspection yet.  Nor do we own any real furniture. Smiley

But I've got it all in my head and have been going crazy on pinterest so... I'll be posting mad house projects once that's all said and done.  Now what can I make myself real quick so that I can be part of the April groove?!

Kwiltykate, as always your work is gorgeous! I'm loving all the owl stuff right now.

Lafemmefatale congrats on the new home! The plotting is always so much fun (the inspection and ALL that paperwork is not so much) have lots of fun with the decorating though!

I made this about a week ago. It is completely hand sewn. I took an old skirt I had and made this christening gown form it, and I am pleased with the results. I can't wait till me and my honey start trying!
