A friend's daughters just transitioned to bunk beds so I made her this little bag for books. Of course, Rhett hasn't used his in weeks because all his books end up where they sleep: Ollie's bottom bunk.

After seeing the tunics that my sister made for my boys, a colleague of Chuck's asked if I could make one for a special little friend of his. So I did. Thanks, emily, for a perfect pattern.

Another little friend's birthday present. I thought it appropriate for a Peter Pan party.

My lunch bag was dying, so I made one from this tutorial on Sew, Mama, Sew. I love it. The inside is lined with Pul on the bottom so hopefully it will be easily cleaned if/when my lunch spills.

Chuck saw a shirt just like this online somewhere. I happened to have the solid tee, so I just whipped up the stencil. I think it's pretty funny.

Two days before Valentines Day, I decided I wanted a conversation heart banner. I knew we were expecting a big snow storm and thought it would be the perfect project. Of course, I finished it the first morning of our five-day weekend, but that meant it was up for Valentine's Day. I'm pretty much in love with it. It's made with fabric and the text is freezer paper stencilled on. And yes, there is one that says, "FAX ME." Why do you ask?

And about one day before Valentines Day, I decided to make these fun shirts for the boys. I promise it will never happen again.

And then Rhett decided he needed a new cape because his was too small. Of course, once it was finished and the smaller was bequeathed to Ollie, Ollie rejected it. He demanded one that looked just like Rhett's. Brothers.


  1. love, love, love it all. the lunch bag is adorable. and i totally love all the v-day stuff you made. so super perfect and cute!

    why no more shirts for v-day?

  2. Love all! (I swear that I thought of typing that before I saw Emily's comment... ) Especially the first! ;)

  3. Love all the stuff you do! Question about the skull flag -did you use your silhouette for that? And lite or normal iron-on transfer paper? If you used the lite transfer paper, do you just iron it on and call it good, or always appliqué it? I have always appliqued mine but it is so much work and if you can do it without I want to know!!
