Finally a finished project or Two

Crafting has been slow going around here, to much snuggling with Scarlette:)
However I did finish these two quick projects.

How cute is Graham in his new shirt.

This project cost me a whole $2.50-which was for the shirt.
I got it at Once upon a Child.
The fabric I won in a giveaway and still have the rest of the Charm pack left.

I love the Graphic look of the letters. Exciting to have something cute to make for a boy. There are so many darling things to make for girls... not so much for boys.

You can find the tutorial here.

He is getting so big:(

Gabby is modeling her new scarf.
You can find the tutorial here.
It can be made from a T-shirt, we just didn't have one to cut up around.

Striking a pose!

We were in Aeropostale and they had these fabric scarfs and Gab wanted one. They were 17$ and were just stretchy fabric twisted together. So I told her we would make a scarf.

I got the fabric at Walmart for $1.50 a yard and still have a TON left over.
She loves it and said" It looks store bought." I think that is pretty good.

I am still trying to finish up two quilts before we move so I don't have to pack them unfinished. One Just needs to be backed and quilted the other top is almost done and then backed & quilted.

I think you need to come teach my Wardrobe Refashioning class for me! LOL Both projects are just darling!! I wish I'd read this before I went to Wal-Mart already today--I want to look for that fabric. That would be perfect to make flowers on the corsage T-shirt that I blogged about! I love the striped pattern. Cute scarf!

Those are so cute! I love his shirt! I agree, everything seems to be for girls. Blake says I never make anything for him, but I dont know what to make.

I love them both! I think I need to make myself a scarf like that! And I hear on the cute little guy stuff. I need to start making some for mine!

What great projects. I love the idea of the boy's shirt. There are so many incredible ideas out there.

He looks like such a little man with those rolled up sleeves, adorable!

The scarf and its model are great, too.

Awww he looks so cute in that shirt!
The scarf is fab too :-)

You sound like you have far less unfinished projects than I do... I really must try and get some finished!
