My piano bench makeover!!! and some other things.

I have been pretty busy this past week~hemming pants for friends, sewing baby gifts and a few extras, making handouts for my girls in yw, and lots of other crafty stuff. Oh, and I finished some Christmas gifts, I am seriously excited about that. I promised my husband I would not be finishing Christmas gifts the night before this year (I have a bad habit of doing that). He doesn't completely believe me. He said he thinks I will just add more at the last minute. :) Anyways, I am super excited about what I got to do tonight after the kiddos went to bed. My piano bench has been in dire need of a makeover. The fabric on the bench was never my fave. and it was time to go when my two little girls took marker to it yesterday. Just click on the picture to see how ugly it really is! YUCK!!

It was just the motivation I needed to get the job done. So off to wally world I went because I had seen the perfect fabric there for exactly this project.

So after an hour or so of work you have this beauty.

I am really happy with how it turned out!!:)

Oh and here are some pics of the onesie dresses I made last week. Feel free to let me know which one is your favorite and how much you think I could sell these for. I am thinking of listing on etsy or ebay; haven't decided yet. Tell me what you think.

This is the one I gave away.

Last thing ~here are the pics of the Christmas gifts I finished last week. They are revamped walmart bags. Trying to be a little greener. O.K. so this isn't a picture of a finished one but my computer ate half of the pictures I took of making these guys so that I could post a tutorial. I think you get the idea. I will be posting a tutorial on how to revamp your bags hopefully this week. They fold up so that you can hook all of them onto a caribeaner(?s/p). Pretty cool, I love them.


  1. Totally Etsy!!! I love that place!

  2. I really LOVE the dress and diaper wipes case you made for me!!! You can totally sell them...and why can't you do both Etsy AND Ebay? Or try Etsy first and then move on to Ebay if they do well. You could also sell the car seat covers you make. And the crinkle/tag blankets too for that matter. In fact, just start a whole line of baby have time for that right?!?! :)
