The last several days, instead of blogging I have been finishing projects.
|I even got myself in there modeling the hat for you 😉
Travis’s 3rd birthday is in one week today and, with the toy invasion (read about the invasion here) from Christmas, I have opted to make items for him.
|The first is the pajamas that didn’t quite make it at Christmas. I’ve come to terms with this late completion as described in this post. Well, they are done now (and a full week before his birthday!).
|I am also making him a tool belt for the tools that he got at Christmas. It is the quickest thing ever – I just used a place mat, bought some belting at the fabric store for $0.50, sewed a few seams and only need to add some Velcro so he can tie it around his wee waist. I got the idea and free tutorial from My Little Gems.
|Finally, I am going to make the little man and his sister (because how could I NOT make one for her also?) a fabulous super hero cape! For those of you Max and Ruby fans, you will know that Max loves his Super Bunny and so does my little super hero (but with his blanket that he drags everywhere!). I got this awesome and free tutorial from The Long Thread. The material I have chosen is above and I was thrilled to find Fireman material since he has been a fireman since September 2010! I’ll show you the finished project when I get these babies done. I’m hoping by the weekend at the latest so I can work on getting a few other projects on the list complete.
