We Made It // Sharing Blanket Kit

July 7, 2015

When I sew I am usually surrounded by sharp scissors, needles and a hot iron – a complete disaster for small children, especially very curious ones like my son Grey. When I was contacted by Jo-Ann fabric and craft stores asking if I would be interested in trying out a new idea – We Made It, by Jennifer Garner – I was pumped, who doesn’t need a fun activity to make with kids during the summer! We Made it, by Jennifer Garner is a collection of more than 100 creative kits and projects designed to promote imaginative exploration among children ages 4 to 11

Star Wars Big Banner // A Sizzix Tutorial

June 1, 2015

Hi friends, today I am sharing a fun and quick project perfect for a kiddos bedroom, a party or any holiday – The Big Banner.

This version is for my son’s “future room” which will eventually be Star Wars themed. The die used for this project is a new one by Sizzix – Bigz L Die, Banner Big. This is one I am so excited about because there are so many ways you can use it! Not just for paper, this die makes the best fabric banners – by sewing and flipping the fabric or even leaving a raw edge.
