Crazee Bunneez blanket for Gabe

There are tons of things I want to do for the holidays, not sure I'll have time for everything though. It includes crafting and sewing, but also cooking and baking... But there is only so much time in one day, especially with our 3months old baby boy :)

Here's where Project Xmas 2007 starts...

Here's the crazee bunneez blanket, they all came to visit and Gabe loved them...

But they wanted to leave the house, so I had to hunt them around the house and pin them down... on flannel!!! Trapped.. for ever! Seems a bit cruel but Gabe loves them that way hehehehe :)

And also, this pretty blanket features the brand new Crazee Crafteez label, although I haven't figured out yet how to properly sew them. The PaperFabric is quite sturdy and doesn't work well with the sewing machine...
Still, it looks more "professional" :)

Ready to be wrapped for Xmas!

Gabe's Xmas blanket

All nice and cozy in pretty xmas flannel from JoAnne's Fabrics.

We didn't have our printer yet, so this blanket doesn't have the label on..

The Crazee Crafteez label is out!!!

We brainstormed and crafted over Thanksgiving weekend to make a fabric label to stitch on my creations...
Shad had got me Paper Fabric for my bday and I couldn't wait to try it. I've been wanting to do that for a long time, ordering labels online is quite pricy and I don't have the satisfaction of designing them myself.

We did throw away a couple of sheets before getting it right. It is not straightforward the amount of time you have to let the ink dry.. My advice is: over night! It does leak a lot when you rinse the paper. But anyway, it turned out good. After a few designs, we finally setteled with this one, and we're very happy with it!
