Daylight Savings Time Already

Hello everyone. Let me start by saying that I totally did not get the memo about turning the clocks ahead before I went to bed last night. The children and I woke up much later today than normal. Then, Anaya's tooth finally fell out, thanks to her messing with it so much. So I decided to make her a tooth fairy pillow. What better time to use the little angel pattern I found. We are calling her a tooth fairy instead, and I sewed a little pocket to the front of her where we will put the tooth in tonight. Anaya just loves her.
Next I want to show you all the cuff bracelet I made for Anaya. Acutually I've been making lots of cuffs lately. They're a good way to use up scraps of fabric, and so easy to make. This one is pretty simple. Just a rectangle of fabric, fleece lining, and backing, and some ribbon I sewed to the top of the main fabric. I sewed them right sides together, leaving a space for turning. Clipped the corners, turned it and sewed it closed. Then I added these snaps. Cool!
These cuffs I made for my boss. The pattern is one I found at jchandmade. I made the pink one for myself and my boss liked it so much that she wanted one just like it. She then asked me to make some for her and her daughter to wear today for the daughter's baptism. So the big white one is for my boss, and the little one is for the baby daughter. It closes with velcro. The other two close with a button and loop.

I have some more things to do before the day ends (like cook dinner, make sure everyone bathes, LOL, you know, things like that) so I must go.
