Dress-Up/Pirate Outfit

Arrgg mateys! I threw together this pirate outfit for Ben-- vest, hat, and hook for his imaginative obsessions! I would actually go back and run binding around the edges instead of serging, but I needed to make it fast. He loves loves loves it!

Captain Hammer

Ben has been really into imaginative play. He's requested all sorts of interesting costumes. I made him a Captain Hammer shirt (based on a Backyardagains episode). During Kayla's nap, he asked me to make a cloth hammer and mask. He's not wearing the mask in these pictures, but you can see the awesome hammer he's sporting!

Quilt for sweet baby girl

One of my friend's goddaughter is in the hospital right now. When I heard she was undergoing surgery it churned up a lot of emotion regarding our time in the hospital with Kayla. When my friend asked about my taggie quilts, I told her I would make one right away and send it with all our love and support. Not bad for a quick naptime project! I want to pass on the support and goodness we had from friends and family during our stay in the hospital. It was hard to catch the quilt with the camera lens I had on, but I did my best. I wish this sweet 3 month old the very best healing thoughts around.

4th of July Wreath

The day before our town's festivities started I threw together this wreath. I tried to mimic a flag with scrap fabric from the dresses and shirts I had made. I used a circular foam wreath and about 3/4 of a yard of fabric. I cut the fabric into 2 inch-3 inch squares. Basically, wrap the fabric around a pencil, dip it into glue, and stick it into the wreath. Repeat close together. I really like the way it looks. Very simple and quick. I did it during Kayla's nap and Ben's quiet time.
