There may have been a shortage of blogging last month, but certainly no shortage of things made.
Ellery’s BFF “friend Caroline” and her nothing-short-of-amazing mother, moved all the way to Colorado. We are so sad they moved away but wish them all the best and promise to skype as much as possible!
I suggested to Ellery that we make Caroline some stationary so she can write letters to us. It didn’t feel like *enough* though, for such a dear friend… I mean, we’re crafters, aren’t we? So, we whipped up a little felt case (i get my felt from Ohma) in no time. We didn’t measure anything, just cut from random pieces in my stash. Caroline and Ellery loooove princesses, so we made a little crown for the front- stitched with gold thread, and some silver embroidery floss knots for a little bling.
Ellery sat on my lap the entire time and helped me keep my lines straight … I love how this has a 4 year old touch.
On the way to Caroline’s house, we stopped and got some special twistable colored pencils (not shown)- perfect for her…she is a fabulous artiste!
I made some couch pillows….
Finally got around to sewing up some cloth napkins. I’m 32. It’s time I stopped using paper towels at every meal.
I am told that Ellery’s “back-to-school” dress, a purply corduroy jumper, will be worn “When I turn 5.” Check back with me in 7 months…
I dunno…. maybe the mustard lining threw her off???
And finally, I got this crazy notion to spray paint my fireplace screen yellow, but when I got to Lowe’s, Avocado spoke to me. So, there you have it… you can spray paint over spray paint, right?
Gotta say I’m a little bummed that E won’t wear my dresses…. So, for a while I’m going to concentrate on sewing for ME!
Next up…. WASHI!
