Just thought I’d pop in real quick before running over to Jenn’s for our craft day. Not a lot of time to talk, but here are some snaps of the Medieval garb I have made so far for our vacation.

Here are some dresses for the girls.

The other day Kyla came up to me and said in a sad, pleading little voice, “Hug Monkey. Hug.” Then she handed me this:

Counting Bean Bags

Craft-Hope-Counting-Bean-Bags

I just finished the latest Craft Hope project. Teaching aid bean bags. I chose to make the number set ~ with the help of my Cricut, I actually have the original that only cuts 6×12, but I didn’t see any links to that one. I don’t think they make them anymore.

So here is a tutorial. No worries if you don’t have a Cricut, I’ll tell you what to do for that, also. As with all my tutorials, feel free to share the link. I just ask that if you share, you do share the link to this post, not take the credit yourself. Thank you.

To start, tear some 6″ strips from your outer fabric. You can see my strips aren’t very long. That’s because I was using scrap fabric. If your strips are 45″ or longer, that’s just fine! You’ll need the equivalent of two 6″ squares per bean bag. Then give your strips a press and pull off any hanging threads. (more…)

I know. It’s been a couple weeks. Let’s just say there were things. The things are done now. It all good now. I should be more regular with my postings now.

So a few weeks ago, Vada came up to me and said in the saddest little voice “Tweet Tweet.” She then handed me this tuft of stuffing.

Now Tweet Tweet is Kyla’s toy. Well, actually, he is a stuffed Tweety Bird from the “Space Jam” movie that my cousin Carly won for me many years ago at a place called BoomTown, just outside of Reno. Kyla has adopted him and he sleeps with her and Teddy.

So I went to Kyla’s bed and took a look at Tweet Tweet. (more…)

Lots of patterns. Good thing I enjoy pattern drafting.

Drafting-Patterns

This year we will be a family of 10 on our Medieval vacation. It will be Doug, the girls and I, my parents, my brother and his wife and 2 boys. Doug and I are good for garb, but the girls have grown out of most of theirs. We have some stuff that will fit the other adult-types, but I will need to pad out the wardrobes a bit. The boys will need everything made. My brother and his family will only be there for four days, so (more…)

There are a couple reasons for this post title. First of all ~ the rain. It rained Saturday night and all day Sunday. Doug’s school is right by a rather large river. He went to work on Monday, as all the smaller rivers were slowly draining the excess rain water into the large river by his school. Eventually, it was too much water and the town started to flood. He has been off the rest of the week. The girls have really enjoyed having him around. (more…)

More Basket Fun

I had to finish up the basket I started in my class over the weekend. It is the same as the one I showed before, so I didn’t take any new pictures. However, when I finished, I felt the need to play some more. So I made these cute little basket purses for the girls to have at Medieval events.
