Movie Time

I finally finished the items I wanted from this pattern. I didn't really want the Red Vines or the Movie Tickets (at least not right now). I love this group of felt food! Next time I will hand sew the salt on the pretzel and sew the dots on the box instead of glue. The glue seeped through. You can see the glue, it's falling off and it's crusty!

It took a while to to hand sew all the individual popcorn pieces then sew them all on the top.
I used a couple of different colors of acrylic felt for the popcorn.

This is by far my favorite one I've done!

Blogaversary and 200th post!

In honor of my 200Th post and 1 year blogaversary, I made a felt pop-tart!
I did a really bad job on the blanket stitch around the edges (I've never been able to do that well!) and there is a cat hair on it in the picture that I forgot to edit:) I didn't use a pattern but copied others I had seen on the Internet and traced a real pop-tart for size

I got this frame at the store to make something like this. I was eager to try anything in it so I took this onesie that both Emily and Ava wore in their birth announcements and hung it from the string. I probably won't keep this onesie in here. I was just seeing if I could do it. The string is strung between the frame and another wooden piece that fits all around it so there is no drilling.

The paper below is one of the cutest baby lines ever! It's K&Co, Small Wonders.

"have to" stuff

More bibs and aprons. Stuff I have to do. I made myself sit down and make them all yesterday. I have new bib/apron fabric coming in so that makes me a little excited to make more:) And I really want to make some of these for the store.
A b-e-a-utiful hat made by Corinnea! It's actually for me not Emily but I didn't want to take a picture of me in it yesterday.
A fresh smelling angel...I let Ava walk around the bathroom naked while I looked in the cabinet for a diaper. She peed then slipped and fell in it 3 times! Almost did the splits. She didn't cry though:)

casadilla or lettuce wrap--which one?

I made this casadilla after seeing one somewhere on the Internet.

Same with this tortilla wrap. I put bendy wire in it so it can be opened and closed. The plastic food inside is just till I make some felt ones:)
Two cream colored felt cut in a circle then sewed together leaving an opening to turn right side out. After turning, sew again around the whole thing about a 1/4" from the edge to make a casing. Insert wire (that will bend and stay open or closed as opposed to memory wire or limp wire) in the whole you left open to turn. tie off wire and hand sew opening closed

Ava seriously does a happy dance when you open the refrigerator. She'll push you out of the way to get in there. And then she rearranges.

And I think yesterday was my 5 year anniversary at Patch Multi-crafts! Crazy!

Holly Hobbie

This is for you Kara! The Holly Hobbie (my mom's version) Christmas picture I was talking about and below is the tooth fairy pillow my mom made me

And here is a felt project I'm working on...a sneaky peaky

garden party dress

I made the size 4 and shortened it but it's huge as you can see here. I wanted it shorter too so Emily could wear it with jeans or shorts. Next time I'll make a size 2 and shorter!
Thanks Corinnea for finding the burgundy solid to go with it! It's perfect.
The pattern was easy although I didn't like that there were absolutely no pictures or illustrations on how to construct it. You had to read how to construct it and that's hard to do when you're trying to listen to an audio book or Emily talk to me about kitties or butterflies. You also had to make almost all the pattern pieces yourself. This is not hard to do because it's only straight lines but it's time consuming.

These frames are from I recolored the 1st one from gold. It's a Danielle Thompson (Kitchy Digitals) frame. The other two are from other designers on the two peas site. All of this done in photo shop CS3.

Sushi 2 and Snow

I made a "dish" for the Sushi. It's made from Peltex, stitch witchery and cotton fabric. I added bias tape to the top edge. It wasn't easy sewing the tape over the Peltex and cotton thickness so the stitches are wobbly.

Emily played in the snow with her friends this afternoon and I got to finally use my fish eye lens outside.

The ponds guards reminded my friend Lisa that we can't take photos on base:)

California Rolls and.....? Pattern free from gulfcoastcottage on etsy (free for mentioning her in a previous post). Super super easy and fast. I used wool felt and acrylic.
These are a present for Mary's son, Nicolas. Mary has started making felt food too and that makes me soooo happy! Someone to share this obsession with:)

Donuts anyone?

All donuts except for the maple bar are made from this free pattern.
The milk carton is from buggabugs on etsy.
These are made from acrylic felt and wool felt.
I ran out of poly-fill or I would have made more:)

The white stripes on the brown one is Scribbles fabric paint.

Maple bar crunch..

Good reads & watches

A post about books and a movie.
these 3 children's books are my favorites! I like these two fairytale books because they are not what you think...
from Barnes & Noble: The prince is hoping to fall for Rapunzel, but since she can't quite hear what he asks for, everything but her hair gets tossed out her window. Instead of her curly locks, she throws her dirty socks. Instead of silky tresses, out go lacey dresses. And you can predict the guaranteed-to-crack-kids-up clothing she sends down when the prince simply says hair. . . .
(a gift from my sister, Julia, to Emily)

Waking Beauty:
from Barnes & Noble: Everyone knows Sleeping Beauty has to be woken with a kiss, except Prince Charming. Every time the fairies watching over her try to tell him, he interrupts with his ideas of how to wake her. Eventually he gets the message, and his reaction is priceless: "One hundred years of morning breath Wow! That could be the kiss of death!"

Treasury of picture book classics:
from Barnes & Noble: From early, beloved classics such as Goodnight Moon and Harold and the Purple Crayon to such recent treasures as If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and Pete's a Pizza, this collection assembles twelve of the greatest picture books ever published. Parents can share the joy of introducing young children to many timeless favorites that have already enchanted millions of readers.
(a gift from Jenny B. to Ava. this book is a huge hard back beautiful book. )

Haven't seen it (don't even know if it's out in the states) but thanks to Mary H. I know about it!
You can make fun stuff on the site like these portraits.

I'm going to have them framed.

Baby Carrier

I finally got my class sample done! Only about 5 days late..I had it almost completely done two Sunday's ago but then set it know how it is:)
Mei Tai baby carrier, pattern by Sew Liberated.
Fabric is Robert Kaufman floral (Mercer Street?) and I think Marcus Brothers dumb dots.
I think it took about 3 hours total. It's very easy too.
This will be a class March 13Th from 12-5 at the store.
I will not be wearing this with 25+ pound Ava in it!

And here it is in it's own "stuff sack". It's the pocket on the front that you stuff it into.

The Party

There was no crying while we sang Happy Birthday! And she actually ate a tiny bit of the cupcake.
I just realized I didn't upload any photos of our friends Lisa and Don or a good one of Jon!

This was her birthday dinner last night. I just thought she looked so stinkin' cute I had to post the photos of it. She's eating German baby food. I love their choices. This is Tagliatelle in cremiger Spinat-Kase-Sauce (tagliatelle noodles in cream, spinach and cheese sauce or something like that).
