Etsy Shop

The thing about girls is that they are sooo much fun to shop and sew for.  However, I have come to the conclusion that my daughter does not need a bag to match every outfit and my buying fabric in the name of making her another bag or some accessory was *ahem* getting out of hand... or so I'm told.

So I've decided to make a few and sell them on Etsy instead.

I love this tote - it fits just enough that it is not overwhelming when going out.  It holds a notebook/coloring book on the left there is an area on top for crayons/pencils as well as on the bottom with a  pocket to store an eraser or any other treasure your child might have.

Each tote comes with a set of the heart shaped crayons.

(might not be a great idea to put your makeup brushes in with crayons or pencils.. however it can hold those items depending on what you are using it for.)

And that's it folks!

Primary Bee Block - March

Hi!  Time for our Primary Bee blocks...  This month Sunshine is the princess and she wanted the bento box.

It was a lot of fun to put together even though it looked complicated it was really easy.  I really enjoyed getting two blocks out of it!

Here we are practicing before we make the actual block.
don't mind the ugly fabric it is only used for our trial runs.

           I got a kick out of the pins matching the fabric so natually I had to have my mom take a picture. : )

Here are our completed blocks.. I sent the one that didn't pucker and the other I will add to my collection of extra blocks that I have made.

I hope you enjoy your block Sunshine!  I had a lot of fun making this one!

Primary Bee Block - February

Guess who's Bee Princess of the month??  My Monkey!
(Ok I got my excitement out!)

Monkey Here - 
I had a lot of fun picking out my colors.  I chose pink because  it is my most loved color in all the world, then purple is next and I chose blue because my brother really likes blue - he calls it the boy color.

Here I am sewing up my block - actually sewing up a part that I missed somehow..not sure how that occured : )  It took me several tries but I got it down, it's a lot easier than the log cabin..that block was tricky! I like to cut and sew, but not iron. My mum really had to help me figure out how to guide it through the machine.  

Here is my finished block!

I can't wait to see everyones blocks and make some more too!

This is a great snowy/rainy day activity. 

 Just be sure that if you are a perfectionist.. you may want to sit this one out.. it is not for the faint of heart.  Watching the brush mix and mingle with colors and just  being slathered on any old way will make you want to run for the hills.. however, it is perfect for children : )

Step 1.
Your choice of vinyl stickers - in this particular project we used the alphabet.

Step 2 - Place Vinyl stickers on your canvas and be sure to really smooth it down so that the paint does not seep through.

Step 3 -  Paints of your choice.

Step 4-  Let the children just go at it...or you can too :)

WHALA!  A master piece is born  :)
