It's been a REALLY long time since I updated this blog. Been really busy with two kids. The recent posts are the few things I've done over the last year. They are definitely kid focused. Seems like most of my projects lately involve them.
Monster Valentine's box for my daughter for school. 10"x14" box covered in hot pink fur.
Slide the cards in her mouth.
Girl Scout Powder Puff Derby car. A race similar to the Boy Scouts Pinewood Derby Race.
Daughter decided she wanted an Ice Cream truck. She helped out a lot on this. What you can't see in the pick is that the whole car is covered in glitter.
My daighter has a Girl Scout camp out coming up and we decided to make a pillow case for her pillow. It's more like a pillow sham and she'll be able to tuck her sheet inside. This was the perfect first sewing project for her. Only straight lines. Not complicated. A quick 30-45 minute project. Anything longer and she'd loose interest.
Learning to use the iron.
I really did very little to help. I did have push the petal because she can't reach it. I work standing at a counter. It's to tall and she can't really stand on a stool and push the petal.
I have learned that because she's left handed I kept standing on the wrong side of her to show her how to do something.
Pinning. Not her favorite part.
Finished! She wants to make a night time hair scrunchy with the left over scraps.
