Clay Beads!

Have you ever used Sculpey clay before?

My mom bought some when we were young, for some reason – to make dollhouse people food, perhaps.

Now, it’s fun to pull out the box-o-clay with my own kids and get our sculpting on! I tend to repeatedly gravitate towards making guinea pigs – but this time, I had a few special requests – and it was so fun! 

Check out my Instagram or Facebook page to see what some of these turned into – jewelry-wise!

Which animals should I make next?

Bikes & Boys

I was at the Hob Lob yesterday, making my usual yarn rounds
And happened upon some great super soft fleece bicycle fabric
Along with a matching chevron
(Husband is a bicycle enthusiast)
So I decided that littlest dude needed a new baby blanket.
Then eldest dude insisted upon needing pajama pants.
This is what came of it!
Next time I will be using a pants pattern, however!
(And perhaps next time I won’t have to stand with a sleeping baby
in the Ergo-baby-carrier whilst using the sewing machine!)

And since my sewing machine was already out,
I upcycled a weird halloween raven shirt I had thrifted for a different project I never did
And made that into a fun little beanie.

So needless to say,
My house has fallen apart in the meantime!
But this was fun, so it all evens out.
