More Goodies

Got a few more photos uploaded so I thought I would post them here for you to enjoy.

I made these cute little John Deere tractor shoes for a friend who was having a little boy. I'm always thankful for the awesome fabric stash I've built up over the years. It allows me to make cute things that are perfect for the receiver at the last minute.

This year's Halloween costumes were fun to make. Donevan wanted to be Captain America. Evan found this great mask and shield and I made the rest of the costume. He was pretty excited about it. Clara is somewhat obsessed with Toy Story so I thought she would love to be Jessie the Cowgirl. I was right. I made the shirt and stitched some cow print onto some of her jeans. The hat was a clearance find, but was brown so I painted it red and white. The wig was, of course, red yarn.

Iris wanted to be an Oregon cheerleader so that's what I made. She loved it. I was a little sad that they didn't let me choose what they were going to be this year, but it was still fun to make exactly what they wanted.

My adorable Captain America!

My sister suggested that for Christmas she would like a Family Home Evening Board, but I didn't want to do just a regular FHE board with the tags with everyone's names that hang on the pegs. I decided that I would make it a chalk board. That way if "Mom" needed to do more than one task, she wouldn't need more than one tag. Does that make sense? So I painted a board with chalkboard paint and cut the vinyl on my Cricut. I also attached a clothespin to hold a piece of chalk on the side. It has a sawtooth hanger on the back so it can be hung on the wall. I was pretty pleased with how it turned out.

I'm really behind on all the birthday cakes I've made, but this is the most recent so as I find the pictures of the others I'll post those as well.

This is obviously for Clara's 2nd birthday. Remember how I said she loves Toy Story...well here is more proof. I looked all over Pinterest and other blogs to figure out a cute way to do a Jessie cake. There are so many good ideas out there. In the end this is what I came up with. I really liked it and Clara loved it!

I was debating on what I should do for the cupcakes. I thought about red hats, green aliens, etc. but finally went with the cow print. It was easy and really went with the whole "Jessie" theme.

Well...that wasn't much, but as I go through more pictures I'm going to keep posting. I really want to get all my projects on here so I can always remember them. Feel free to let me know what you think.
