Fabric Roads

010I started making these for Asher’s cousin back in May but misplaced them when I moved. Luckily, I found them in time for Christmas. The idea was borrowed from Polly of Helping Little Hands. My addition to her idea was the traffic circle. After all, you never know when you might end up driving in England so you want to be prepared. Although I guess the arrows might be backwards for that. The arrows and stop symbols were painted on with fabric paint, as is the color coded parking lot, which I decided to make the evening before my trip and just didn’t have the time or the materials for a proper appliqué.
All of it was folded and placed into this little bag. I made a embroidered truck from some clipart on a scrap of corduroy and appliquéd it on a reusable gift bag.

Asher has a set too. He usually goes to bed with one of the road pieces and a couple of cars. hmmmm, that gives me an idea

Happy Birthday, Ruth!

I know you haven’t seen much craftiness from me lately…trust me, the Christmas crafts are piled high, I just haven’t had time to blog about them.
However, I wanted to stop by and say Happy Birthday to my partner in crime, Ruth!


 Hope you have a fantastic day, my friend.

And I promise, after the holiday I will have some fun things to show you. Happy Holidays to everyone!

Helmet-hat for Hanukah

Okay it’s just a hat but Ash calls anything that you wear on your head a “Helmet-hat” including hooded sweatshirts and knitted baskets.


At first he wanted nothing do do with this had but then I appliquéd the little car on it and then he didn’t want to take it off. I guess details are important.


Instructions to make your own helmet hat from t-shirt scraps can be found on this post from Cheri of I am Momma


Happy Hanukah!
