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.
Monkey and I jsut wanted to say thank you for all of the blocks that she has receved. She is in love with them all and can't wait to start putting them together and quilting it. We're still waiting on a few more but here is what she has so far.
We got to make another Bento box...I really like these since I get to keep an extra block. We didn't get much pictures this time but here is Aprils block. I hope you like it, it reminds me of spring with the rpetty bright colors.
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!
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 : )
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 :)
