cooking + sewing = one happy mama

This weekend we decided to try Addison's ghost cake that he saw in this magazine. I thought it was all about the marshmallows, but I was wrong.
This is what we came up with.

As we were making it, the lovely picture was right next to us. When we were done Addison stared at our cake, then at the magazine picture, then at our cake.....
"Mom! It doesn't look like the picture! I thought it was going to look just like the picture! Why doesn't it look like the picture?"
"Well, honey, Martha doesn't have a two year old, and a four year old helping her, so really..ours is much better."
"And she doesn't have a Jack?"
"No, she doesn't even have a Jack" I say as I look down at my baby desperately trying to suck on my big toe.
After many more glances at the magazine, and a long stare at the cake, he comes up with this
" Yeah! Martha makes sloppy cakes, just like us, but ours is better!"
"Yes, love, she does and yes, ours is better. "

After having a piece of cake, I got Madge out and started on a new Amy Butler pattern. It's the nappy bag, and I am in love with it! It has lots of room, great pockets on the inside, and even a nice changing pad!

Now, what sweet little tush will not love to be changed on that?
This one is for a friend, but I was so in love with the pattern, I had to make one for myself. It's like a diaper bag in disguise , because it looks like a sassy purse.
I have some oil cloth that would be great for this bag, and it is what I should have used, seeing that it is water proof, pee proof, poop proof, juice proof, spit up proof, but I choose something else.

Brown ultra suede and another Amy Butler print. I tied the handle in a knot, and added a vintage pin. Now tomorrow I will be able to fill it with the diapers, wipes, snacks, juice cups, extra clothes, aspirin...this baby has a lot of room, and I must say, it is the sexiest diaper bag I have ever seen.

Is it possible that when you become a mother you just KNOW the right things to say . . . no I think it's just who you are Katie. What a great mommy moment.
