Making PJs and Breaking Sewing Machines

**Note: I do realize this post is quite outdated, and that several snippets were posted to Facebook. However, I have a few new projects in mind, so a recap now is timely, I think. Also? It’s my blog and I’ll rehash if I want to.** My favorite set of pjs was a gift from my […]

Valentine’s Box, The First Year

Remember the Valentine’s Day goodies I posted about last week? I did finish the goodie bags during the week, but that Valentine box? Yeah….it didn’t get started until today. Thankfully, it also got finished today…and then partially destroyed (there is a toddler in the house, and he was helping–you do the math)…and then refinished (sort […]

Valentine’s Day Goodies

Sam’s class is having an actual Valentine’s Day party this year, complete with exchanging valentines and decorated boxes and everything.

Making a Baseball and Basketball

Cake, that is. With Sam’s second birthday just around the corner (AAAAAAACK!), I’ve started thinking about what to do for his birthday cake.

Of Blankets and Survival Kits

You’ve probably heard (read? seen? you get the idea) me say I’m not a crafty-type person. I stand by that, but this week/weekend, I had a pretty good moment, I think. Saturday was a baby shower for a friend of mine. This baby was much prayed for and is already so loved and cherished – […]

What Do You Get…

When you combine: One brown sweatsuit (size 24 mos) Several pieces of craft felt: Some tan-ish curtain tie-back cording: And a semi-cooperative 18-month old? Why, just the MOST PRECIOUS puppy dog (or, as Sam says, Say-Say) EVER And one more (for good measure) from the school party

Say-say Blankie

Published by under Crafty projects

Several weeks ago I was at Walmart getting some much needed alone time groceries when I happened to stroll through the fabric department. I wasn’t really looking for anything in particular, but I like to just browse sometimes. In the remnants section, I found this adorable fleece print, and wouldn’t you know it? It was […]
