This has been a fun week! I've called it craft week. My wonderful parents and in-laws have kept Westin this past week so Reagan and I have just been hanging out. I've filled the week sleeping in, running errands that I normally wouldn't do with a two year old, hanging out with friends and I even busted out the sewing machine.
First up, I found a place for Cody's "DAD" picture. You can't really see it in this picture but I hung it in our room.
I found some fun duck cloth fabrics at Hobby Lobby and made some shirts. A whale for Westin and a bird for Reagan.
To make the shirts I ironed some 725 Heavy Duty Wonder-Under to the back side of the fabrics. Then I drew a design on the back of the paper and cut it out. Then I ironed it on the shirt. (Follow the directions on the Wonder-Under.) I usually hand stitch around the design but since my sewing machine was out I tried it that way and it worked great! It was so fast. As long as the designs are pretty simple I'll be able to do it this way. :) If there are a lot of corners and details I'll have to hand stitch. I know the very basics about my sewing machine. Ha!
Since I had my sewing machine out, I finished up those dish towels I started about a year ago.
Elizabeth and I made these burlap stars for our front doors. We followed THIS tutorial.
