I had hoped to get a little crafting done yesterday as my mind is absolutely bursting with things I want to make. Alas, I didn't have the time, but I had a pretty good weekend so I can't complain.
My Favourite Girl has discovered the joys of Pinterest, and asked me to make her a shark pencil case for school. She specifically requested pink patchwork and I was only too happy to comply:
Another project from the Pinterest files is this poppy embroidery:
The original was for sale in an Etsy shop, but I don't see her making them anymore. I would loved to make an orange one as well, but I could only find red fabrics. This looks great with my poppy pillows!
The fabric apple was a bit of an experiment. I would say my pattern made a very successful pumpkin shape, so I will file it away for October! It was fun to try something different though.
Isn't the school bus cute? My Favourite Girl painted this rock years ago and I thought it was very clever of her at the time. It's not often she pulls out the crafting supplies anymore, preferring to spend time on her iPad chatting with friends and watching videos. I like to remember the 'old' days when self confidence and art projects never really had anything to do with each other! She has started a craft board on her Pinterest account, so hopefully she will get back to creating things just for the fun of it again. A mom can dream!
Now I see it's almost time for the kids to get off the real school bus so I must go. Thank you for all the love on my last projects - I really appreciate you taking the time to get in touch.
