I haven’t had much time to craft since my little guy was born but this past weekend me and my kids made the trip to my parents house and my mom and I played with her sillouette and some shirts we found on clearance. I am wanting a sillouette more now then before and love the things you can do with it! My daughter loves her new shirts we made and I am sure my son will look adorable in his when it fits him! The white on the butterfly and the body of the sheep are flocked and gives it just a little extra texture that makes it that much more fun!

I came across a “Create with me challenge” on Ucreate, and just had to play along. Recently we bought a new couch and it is screaming for throw pillows. After a quick trip to IKEA for pillow forms (down 20” pillow forms are only $7.00, what a steal!) I had to then figure out what I really wanted to do. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money either, so I just went through my fabric “stash” and found a couple of things I really liked. Left over canvas from one project, and some light blue jersey knit that was given to me. PERFECT!
I followed the tutorial found here and went to work… It ended up taking a bit more time than I had planned, but the lack of sleep last night was worth it. My 4 year old came to me this morning and said “Mom, I sat on the couch this morning to watch cartoons and saw a new pillow, it is SO CUTE!” What a compliment :)
