Stenciled Baby Onesies

I don't know why I don't stencil more often. It so fun especially on baby onesies. I used some stencils from Lotta Jansdotter's book but also made a few of my the dinosaur! How cute is that?

Felt Paper Dolls

I absolutely loved paper dolls when I was little but I always ended up breaking off those little tabs on the clothes.  I saw this idea here and instantly saw its perfection: the felt clothes just stick on the tabs necessary! I whipped up my own little set and also made a little envelope that she can keep her dolls and clothes in. Pretty adorable, if I do say so myself!

Whale Stuffed Animal

I have two little nieces that I really wanted to make whale stuffed animals for. I saw a couple of different ideas but ended up using this pattern and shrinking it down a bit so they could fit in my suitcase! I think they turned out super cute and can't wait to see my nieces snuggled up with their new whale friends!

Adjustable Kid's Apron

I have a four year old nephew who loves John Deere and also loves to help his mom in the kitchen. So (obviously) I decided to make him a John Deere apron for Christmas. As you can see in the picture, I made the straps and neck piece connected so it can be adjusted as he grows up. I'm so happy with how this turned out and can't wait to see how cute he is with it on!

Felt Tools and Toolbelt

My brother is really good with woodworking and fixing things so I thought it would be pretty cute to make a felt tool set for his son. I was really happy with how these turned out. So much so that I forced all my coworkers to look at pictures of them...

I pretty much used this set as a guide for the tools and just whipped up the belt with trial and error. If anyone is interested in a how-to I can definitely add in some instructions.
