Craft Day: Bean Bags from Scraps

Share

While I was rummaging through my craft box, I saw I had kept the triangles I had cut out while making Olivia’s crown. I started playing with them, to see how easy it would be to make a little quilt out of them. But before I knew it, I had these sitting in front of […]

Craft Day: A Superhero Cape – Part Two – FINISHED!

Share

Now for the fun part.  And as it’s 2 a.m., my creative juices are flowing.  It reminds me an awful lot of college. I printed out a large (600 pt), bold, Century Gothic ‘B’.  I was flipping through the fonts, saw “Century Gothic”, thought “Batman” and what do you know?  Success! (Also, if you right […]

Craft Day: A Superhero Cape – Part One

Share

This thing took me ALL.DAY (and into the next day – I didn’t go to bed til 2!) to make.  Once I got the hemming done, it was easy as cake and even fun.  But THE HEMMING. *shudder* I started by drawing a semi-circle on the fabric.  I used Benjamin’s height from shoulders to ankles, […]

Craft Day: A Princess Crown – Part Three (FINISHED!)

Share

It’s a tad taller than I’d hoped for (and I say “hoped” because I never can do math well enough to be sure that it’ll work out just like I planned…), but it’s a crown, and it’s a cute one, at that! I think it kinda looks like a pirate crown. A pirate princess crown. […]

Craft Day: A Princess Crown – Part Two

Share

Well, I survived the sewing machine thus far!  It hasn’t all been perfect, but I think it’s turning out okay regardless… I sewed the inner crown together – just on the top, leaving the sides open.  Then I had the fun task of pulling it all right-side out.  I used closed scissors to poke all […]

Meet-and-Greet: A Yoda, a Spider, and a Princess

Share

The Yoda: I did not make his costume.  We bought it for Olivia.  And every.single.child since has been Yoda for their first Halloween.  Yep, both of ‘em. The Princess: I did not make her dress.  It is a flower girl dress from a wedding she was in this summer.  I did not make the crown […]

And I Don’t Have to Make Another Cake ’til March

Share

Unless I make myself a cake. Which Olivia thinks I should. In the shape of a dog. But I won’t. So I’m done ’til March. Three birthdays within a month of each other. Granted, I didn’t have a make a cake for Levi’s, but having a newborn for the other two definitely made life more […]

My Craftiness: A Butterfly Cake

Share

Hello from my couch! From between two piles of laundry! Hi! Can you see me? I’m the one with my feet up. The one who is currently not nursing nor holding an infant. The one not changing a single diaper! The one who just put in ANOTHER LOAD OF LAUNDRY. Two children ago, I would […]
