troy was on nights last week, so i was able to get a little more crafting done in the evenings. last night, i made this cute little guy for the new kid! i printed the pattern off back in, umm, MAY! and finally got around to putting it together. which, by the way, took almost no time. and he makes me smile. so, win win!
he's got a dorito bag inside, as well as a piece of batting. i grabbed some scraps off the cutting table for the eyes, mouth and antennae - skipped the legs because i was lazy. i am also thinking i need to make a onesie applique to match - how cute would that be?! maybe tonight after the kids go to bed...
and i just read that disney won't be posting on her blog anymore, but you should still go check her out. she's a very crafty gal.
i've also been making bows and flowers like crazy. it's my way of using up every last little piece of fabric, i cannot seem to throw anything away. which is why my sewing room is such a disaster. so i've been chopping every scrap into squares to make flowers with. i keep a little box of them, along with my needle and thread, and whip them up while i watch movies with the kids or during quiet time. i ran out of hair clips, and my new ones just came today, so me and the glue gun have a date in the near future! and i've re-discovered i really enjoy hand sewing. i used to do some cross stitch, and maybe i need to get my hoop out again.
