I created my own little crayon roll. It was really easy to make, but it did take a minute to sew in all of those little channels! I used a 24-pack of crayons, instead of the smaller packs. I was surprised at how cheap crayons are! 12 cents for a box of 24 at Wal-mart! Anway, enjoy the pics, and comments good or bad always appreciated!
This morning at my daughter's daycare, I saw another baby's bib that looked like fabric (Michael Miller disco dot, to be exact) with some sort of wipeable stuff fused to it. Does anyone know what this might be? I might have to go to Hancock Fabrics and investigate. I bought some of those vinyl bibs for my daughter when she eats solids, but they're not very flexible, and they smell like vinyl. And then after she eats they smell like vinyl and whatever she just ate. ha.
I may be addicted to making taggies. This one is for my 2 year old nephew, who saw his baby sister's original Taggie, and thought it was pretty cool. I didn't think he's too old for one, so I made it just for him. He's a huge Veggie Tales fan, so this fabric was perfect! Since he's a little older, I made it bigger than my first one (12"x12").. this one measures about 20"x22". It's super soft flannel, so I almost hate to give it away!
I know there's a patent on the original Taggie brand, so I think I'll just start calling them loopies. hahaha.
I think I'm officially addicted to making placemat purses. This is my second one, and I'm already planning a third..I'm going to attempt a placemat diaper bag. I guess this would be more of a placemat tote bag, but it was fun and easy, so it doesn't really matter. I bought these placemats at Wal-Mart for $1.50 each, and the pack of 2 coordinating napkins for $2.50 I think. I used a piece of one napkin for the inside pocket, and haven't decided what to do with the other napkin. Maybe more pockets?
I know it's very plain, but this is the first bag I've ever done! It's a placemat bag at that, so I hardly feel like I've done anything. Special thanks to not2old4glitter for this tute: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=94934.0! It really helped me understand the corners! I'm new to sewing, so I was pretty proud of myself.
Can't post pictures yet, so here are the links:
I was too lazy to change the thread to red or black, so the light blue thread is visible where I sewed the straps on. Does anyone have any suggestions for embellishments to cover up the light blue thread? Next time I'm going to add pockets, and possibly a liner.
