Christmas Craft Fever

I have been very busy lately making things for the Christmas Craft shows that are coming up.. The first show I'm doing is tomorrow. Here are some of the things that I am going to be selling

I made a candy cane snuggle pod. I think it would look so cute on a little one for Christmas.

I've been making tons of Crayon Rolls

My new favorite creation is these Tic Tac Toe games for kids....or for adults if they are bored too.

The games are enclosed in a plastic pocket, so everything is contained neatly, and you can take it along where ever you want.

All the pieces are hand stitched felt. The game board itself is felt as well so they stay where you put them. So fun, if I do say so myself. I will be selling the games for $15, so if you are interested in one for a Christmas gift or something just let me know. They are a little time consuming to make with all the hand stitching so the sooner the better :)

I have a good reason for not posting for more than a month now. *wink, wink* I am 17 weeks pregnant. Due the end of April. So that has put a little wrench in my energy and creativity levels. First trimester is out of the way and I'm feeling much better now, so hopefully I will be back to my regular crafty self.

Le Grand Crayon Roll

A friend of mine has a little boy in Parent Pre-school. They had been asked to bring 24 crayons to class to work with. The standard crayon rolls I make have 16 crayons in them, so she asked me if I could make her one that held 24. With a few measurements and altering of the pattern, I made up these cute crayon rolls for her and a couple other ladies in the class.
I really like the material I used on the top one. It's actually material that I bought for my older daughter's layered skirt. Which I have yet to do lol. Add it to the list eh!
I found some fun boy themed material and made up this one for her son. I didn't want to use ribbon for the closure, because i think it's a little too girly, so I used some elastic and a button. I think it turned out really well, don't you?

I will be adding these to my shop and they can be purchased for $15, that includes crayons.

New Fall Colors

I have some new colors for Snuggle Pods that I was able to find, however they aren't colors I can normally get so these are while supplies last :) If you would like a snuggle pod in one of these colors for your little one I wouldn't wait.

So Precious

I had to share these pictures that were taken by Rebecca Cooper using one of my snuggle pods. The baby is just a newborn so the standard size is a little big on her, but I think she doesn't mind one bit.
Makes me wish there was one big enough for me to curl up in :)

Thanks for taking these Rebecca :)

Sew Happy and More!!

One of my cousins asked me to make her some crayon rolls for her nieces. So I pulled out my stuff and whipped these ones up. They are so fun, and have princess crayons too :)
This same cousin also happens to be pregnant, but not for much longer ;) So I made her one of my snuggle pods to swaddle her new little one in. Nothing could be better, they are so soft and totally washable.

I made two of the blue patterned crayon roll so I have an extra one that is for sale if anyone is interested. They are $10 ea. Send me an email if you are interested.

Ruffle Skirt

Yesterday was a holiday and my hubby didn't have to work, yay! Normally we would do something as a family outdoors, however, it was rainy :( So I decided to work on a project that I have been thinking about for a while now. I pulled out my fabric and made a cute ruffle skirt for my 4 year old using this tutorial It worked out quite well allthough I think I will make a few changes to the sizes of material when I make one for my older daughter.

I wanted the under ruffle to show a little more so I think I will make those pieces a little longer.
I added some decorative stitching and some cute ricrac to the ends to give it a little something extra. :)
I hope you like it and if you try this skirt I would love to see your version.

Little Hoot

I have a friend who likes owls. We were going to get together and so I thought I would make her a little something special. You see, she lives very far away, so I thought she would like a little owl to keep her company :) He was fairly easy to make and so cute if I say so myself.
After I made him however, my girls started asking me if I could make them all sorts of little animals. I can tell it's going to be a long summer. LOL
