Embroidered pillows for Valentine's day - gifts for the girls

I had originally meant to give these pillows to the girls for Christmas but I didn't complete them quick enough. I finished the embroidery two nights ago and made the pink minky fabric pillows yesterday. (The patterns came from an Etsy shop, and I spent many evenings doing the embroidery.) Maddie loves yellow, purple, and butterflies so this one's for her: Ava's starting to enjoy embroidering her own designs and this one's for her: I may have dripped salsa on Ava's while snacking and…

Valentine gifts - diy yarn crafts....

The small purple heart is my creation...I helped Maddie with the yellow & purple heart...I think she's giving it to me.... Valentine's Day is coming up soon and although my Husband and I don't celebrate the day (neither of us feel like a forced romantic day is all that romantic), I always make it fun for the girls. I'm sewing a gift for each of them [which I'll post soon] and I have small chocolates to go along with the gifts. I'll also make a construction paper card for each girl...perhaps…

Painted bedroom door initials....

I bought the girls wooden letters to paint and put on their bedroom door - less than $2.00 each at Michael's. They had a great time choosing the colours and taking a few minutes to paint their initial. Ava made a rainbow pattern and added clear glitter. Maddie used a lot of each paint colour and swirled them together and she added a small amount of glitter. Once the letters were dry, I put a few drops of hot glue on each one and handed them to the girls. They placed them on the door....

Madelaine is 3!!!

Sweet little Maddie is three - time goes by so quickly now it seems.... She was very excited in the weeks leading up to her birthday, and she asked everyday, "Is today my birthday?" Maddie was happy to bake her cake with Ava and Daddy...and to sample the lavender purple icing that Ava made...and she may have eaten a few smarties as they were put on the top of the cake...and Ava may have sampled some too. We had a small party with family, and lots of playtime with her cousin and friends. For…

Maddie's Fabric Mobile

I have just finished making Madelaine a fabric mobile for above her new big girl bed. I started the mobile by winding strips of citrus fabric around a large embroidery ring (I had one on hand from the pillows I made Maddie - "Maddie's Pillows"). Then I braided strips of gray and white chevron fabric and created 3 lengths for the hanging triangle. I knotted the braided ends and left them raw. Cutting the many circles was the time consuming part of the process. I used various new and vintage…

Ava is 8!

Ava turned 8 the other day, and we had a small party at our house with family and several of her friends. Over a few evenings, I made the party decorations out of fabrics that I already had (yellow, pinks, and purple), and we ordered some helium balloons as well. I used the same technique that I would to make a braided throw rug and instead I made various sized flowers to decorate our large cabinet. To start, I cut several fabrics into long strips: Then I braided 9 separate continuous…

Homemade Dream Catcher

I made Ava a dream catcher out of supplies that we had around the house. I put together a collection of fabrics, ribbons, yarn, a crocheted flower, and a circular Tupperware lid. I utilized some of Ava's beads, and feathers from her craft box. First, I cut out the center of the lid, and then I set to work weaving the yarn into a web structure. Then I used the web for weaving the yarn in a circular pattern. Before I covered all of the blue of the lid I stitched the strips of fabric to the…
