Even though I still make lots of baby shoes, I have a new favorite baby gift. Obviously, this one only works for a girl, but it comes together super quick and with not very much fabric. I think this might be the cutest thing I've sewn in a long time. I also think that I really need a daughter to sew for one day.

Other fun tutorials I've used lately: (Sorry, I haven't taken a picture of them, but trust me when I say they turned out well)
Tote bag - This is a super easy project that ANYONE could do - actually it would be a fantastic project for someone new to sewing who might be afraid to try something. I also like it because although I normally line my bags, when you use a heavier weight fabric you really don't need to. An unlined bag comes together really fast, and even faster when you just buy the pre-made woven webbing to use for handles. As I have a bunch of decorator weight fabric lying around, I'm going to make another batch of these bag really soon.
Pillowcase bag - Another quick project to make from an old pillowcase. If you want a better explanation of martha's somewhat terse directions, check out this website that has included more pictures.
