mama's getting crafty

don't these fabrics make you want to get crafty?


well, that's what i did.
i totally stole the idea from another blog.
i am really not that creative, just pretty good at copying.



i used witch stitching (i think that's the name) to iron the fabric on.
then dusted off the sewing machine,
so i could stitch the edges.




yes, i had to pull out the directions.
its been at least 3 years since i have sewed anything.



the bobbin broke and i almost resorted to hand stitching.
i was fully prepared to be up all night to finish.
yes, i was waiting until the last minute to make birthday gifts.
no fretting though.
i know my sewing ability and bought back up gifts.



my helper was drooling over the new and fancy toy.


and the final product:



i have a few ideas for boy shirts and more ideas for some girly ones too.
please, bombard me with ideas and/or requests.
this was so much fun!!

I'm going to be thinking about ideas.

How about an alligator? Or will your Seminole pride keep you from that? :)

They are so precious and you can count on me to be a customer!
