Here are a few of my favorite things from around the web this week:

  • The Two Minute T-Shirt Dress from Prudent Baby... There's a slew of upcycled baby clothes tutorials out there, but this caught my eye for being particularly cute and easy.  I used to love wearing my dad's t-shirts around the house when I was a little girl, and I'd be lying if I said there wasn't a part of me hoping our little one wants to help me downsize her dad's t-shirt collection by adopting a few as her own.

  • Oh, Fransson!'s Mod Blue Mosaic Quilt... Oh, Fransson! is one of my quilting heroes (and a fellow Portlander!)  Her quilts are always so modern and unexpected - and this one is no exception.  My brain has a hard time with asymmetry, so while I'm not sure I'll ever be able to adopt her style of quilting, I still love to swoon over her creations.

  • My friend Rachael sent me this DIY Bird Mobile tutorial last night, and I'm pretty much obsessed with it... Sarah was going to help me DIY a mobile similar to the one in the mood board I put together, but this tutorial has me totally inspired.  I'll have more than enough scrap fabric left over from the various nursery projects - plus, hello!, they're birds!  Tiny little perched birds in coordinated fabrics keeping watch over my baby girl.  It's all too much.  I kind of HAVE to do this, right??
