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 ...
