Car Caddy

I found this tutorial a while ago and then saw a different version of the car caddy by Jill onSYTYC so I had to try one for my nephew. I made it similar to Jill's because I loved the idea of reusing old jeans. I wasn't going to add the number's inside but without them it looked a little empty. I added a felt car on front and printed CARS on top. I love how it turned out:

Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day

Today is Sew mama Sew's giveaway Day, I will be giving away gifts for your little one:

A doll I have been loving to make from Stitched in time.

And something I just tried for the first time, a travel art kit. Right now it is stuffed with some markers and something to make the mama's laugh (a fashion citation pad). You can fill the other pockets with crayons, stickers, a color book, and/or some paper. I found the tutorial here, and I agree that it is a great go to gift.

To enter please leave a comment on this post. I would love for you to tell me where you are and what you're making this week, or just anything about yourself.

I will draw a winner using on Dec. 6th.

Ornament 2

The second cross stitched bird is complete for my nephew. I have had all my craft supplies out all day today with hopes of doing a few projects, but I was having to much fun playing with baby T. Now that she is sleeping, I would love nothing more than to go rest my eyes but I think I will stay up just a little longer and make a few things.

To wrap up the Movember month we went to a party downtown to celebrate the men with their mustaches. They had a contest to see who had the best mustache and R won!! This is R's second win in the mustache catagory, you may remember the prize I made for his last win.
