projects.

In the midst of all this chaos I took some time last night
to chill out the best way I know how.

I crafted and sewed.

I made us a lime green "S" to hang on our front door.
For St. Patricks Day? No.
Just because I wanted a springy color
and Alan said no to hot pink and Hancock was out
of turquoise!
Thanks to Alan for drawing and cutting out the "S"!


I bought these cute little shorts and shirts at Wal-mart.
I thought they needed some sprucing up so I
bought an extra pair of shorts to make an applique for the shirts.
I got the directions here.
I had to straight stitch mine because my letter
was much smaller than the one she shows in her tutorial.
And I will not be showing a close-up of the letters.
Let's just say they are made with love! :)


I think they turned out pretty cute!
Especially since they only cost $10.50 an outfit!
Did I mention they are size 12 months?
