A few projects

I know I haven't blogged a lot recently. The second child really brought my craftiness to a stand still. Sorry.

This past week, my eldest and I got pinkeye. While not a lot of fun, it gave me 3 days off work to get us healthy, and since both boys were actually completely content to watch movies, do puzzles, and play with each other, I had some time. Here's what was accomplished:

1) Floor cushion. I've made one of these before, but here are the end results:
Interested in making one? Head over to Living With Punks for the tutorial!

2) Laundry Bags. These were fairly easy. Choose a font and size in word that you want your letters. Print them out, cut out the letters to use as pattern pieces. Cut letters out of fabric (using your printed paper letters as a template). Pin fabric letters in place on whatever you are attaching them to. Using a zig zag stitch, attach letters by sewing around all edges (one side of the stitch in the fabric of the letter, one outside of the fabric). Sorry, the pic is blurry...

3) Art Smock. Warning: Laminated Fabric/Oilcloth involved in this one.
If you like this, the pattern is available for purchase over at Peek-A-Boo Pattern Shop

4) Finally, it was Halloween. So I had to make a ship for my little pirates!

I don't know how frequently I'll post, but at least I do every once in a while. Once a year is good, right?
