Heart Shaped Pillow for Valentine

Valentine is our friend’s baby and her mom does awesome photo shoots with her each month with a different theme. They always turn out so cute! With Valentine’s Day coming up I wanted to help make something for the photoshoot so I made this cute heart shaped pillow. If I get time and inspiration I might have to make her a couple headbands too. I only have boys so I just have to make the cute girly stuff for friends!

My boys don’t like to stay still for photoshoots but I was able to get a couple of pictures of my oldest while I was trying to take a picture of the pillow to send to my friend.

I can’t wait to see what magic she does with the pillow and her adorable baby, the pictures will turn out amazingly I’m sure!

Quick Pacifier Clip

5 Minute Pacifier Clip

My son is addicted to his pacifier, but now he also likes to eat and be messy so one pacifier clip isn’t enough. Last night I needed a second pacifier clip so I whipped one up before bed.

I was lucky to have an abundance of lanyards from when we went to Nascar and they had nice clips on them. I also used some thin elastic, leftover from My Little Pony Headbands.

It was a super quick sewing job to make this pacifier clip with the sewing machine, but it was also be easy to hand-sew if you don’t have a sewing machine handy.

1. Trim the lanyard to about 6 inches long. You don’t want it to be too long because it’s a safety hazard.

2. Trim the elastic to about 3 inches.

3. Fold the elastic in half and place it between the two sides of the lanyard. Sew it in place.

That’s it! Seriously so easy and having a pacifier clip for my baby is seriously the most useful baby item we have. Our first one we received as a gift and it was one of my favorite things ever!
