I’ve been crafting away … again. I figured out how to make the fabric boxes firm by combining two tutorials. I still have 3 more boxes to go so when they are complete I’ll reveal them all at once.
Remember the car race track I did for my kids? Here’s the tutorial for it. Well, I decided to complete the applique fire truck, police car, ambulance and pond. I went onto the computer for some graphics and printed them out.
I then got out my handy dandy scissors and cut out the shapes in felt that I had to make it match the design of the clip art. I then hot glued the felt embellishments to the base. I think I’ll stitch it with a blanket stitch (when I learn how to do it) to secure it further, but for now I’m thrilled with how they look.Oh, and I realize the ambulance is purple but I didn’t have enough white. I think the big red cross makes it look like an ambulance though.
I also completed a body pillow cover for our room. It was a cranberry colour but our room is now blue paint and has navy curtains so I wanted to coordinate it. There is blue and gold in the comforter so this pulls it out (although the photo isn’t bringing out the blue). This was a semi-quilt attempt to see if I liked it and guess what?! My next project is going to be a queen sized quilt for little Travis’s big boy bed that he has started to sleep in. What am I in for?? I’m actually really looking forward to it.
I’ll be linking up this week with my friends …

Hi! I love your website and these pillows are so creative! I host a link up party called TOT TUESDAYS every Tuesday where people share their recipes, crafts and activities for toddlers. I’ve also currently got a giveaway for a Mother Earth scarf at the moment. I hope you’ll stop by:
That duck pond turned out incredibly cute! Thanks for linking up to Craftastic Monday:)
Those trucks are adorable! My son would love them. They look great!
What an outstanding clever idea. These are really cute…you are very talented!
Thanks for sharing this creative little stop on our journey through Alphabe-Thursday's letter "O"!
Cute projects! The body pillow turned out really nice, and should really tie the room together.
super cute! gotta love clip art!
I agree, your felt firetrucks, ambulances and police cars came out really well. Love it!
Cool about re-covering your body pillow.
super cute! Love your header too!
You have a lot of creativity going on at your place. Such cute felt designs. I think I like the duck pond the best. And your new pillow is lovely. (I like you header too… so fun.)
Cute projects, but I'm trying to figure out what started with the letter "O" this week.
Wow, you sure are linking to a lot of parties! I had a play mat when I was a little girl and I think a purple ambulance would have made it much better.
Really cute projects. Very creative. Thanks for sharing!
