i wonder where this extreme joy i feel when i work on new projects come from. really. how can something that others might think is just blaha give me almost butterflies in my tummy? sometimes just the thought of colorful paper, glue and some ink can make me giggle :) hm...i might have a condition afterall :=)
anyway, here are 2 of my latest super simple craft projects.
from my work with little kids i have seen more than once, that it is the tags on toys that find their way in to mouths than the acctual toy :) so i wanted to make a tag-blanket. since i have a bunch of scrap ribbon i used up a bit of my stash for this :) you will need a piece of fleece fabric and fold it in two. cut your ribbon and put the bits inbetween the fabric and just sew it together. voila! instant baby gift! this would be a perfect christmas gift, right!
and since i was playing with the sewing machine and had some fleece fabric left i decided to make a laptop comfy for my new toy :) also super simple; sew everything together to make a pouch. i sewed a few seams straight (ok not that straight) over the front to make a little more texture. i embellished the front with some buttons too!
oh, how i love easy and simple crafts!
ETA: i had a wonderful comment on this post that i wanted to share:
Nice idea. Normally the ribbon is looped to prevent strands becoming a possible choking hazard.
thank you so much!
