Crayon Roll

Crayon roll tutorials are a dime-a-dozen on the internet. And this one is one of the better ones that I have found.

I only altered two things: the size of the slots {because I knew I was going to use the triangular Crayolas... they don't roll off the restaurant table!} and I used Velcro attached to a tab instead of ribbon... since I want my little guy to be able to put it away himself.

He loves it and I have a feeling that this might be my "go-to" gift for some upcoming birthdays!

Camera Strap {Slip} Cover

Back when I made my new nursing cover, I used some of the leftover fabric to make this camera strap cover and I just love it!

The only things I'll change next time I make one {because I am sure I will - it makes my camera feel so new!} is to make it a little bit wider, to make it easier to put on and take off, and put a lining in it, again to make it easier to put on and take off.

An {easy} Applique Shirt

A while back, a friend of ours asked if I could make an initial shirt for her son. He's totally into tractors {and fire trucks too, but a tractor was a little easier!}:

To make it, I simply used the same technique as I did here, after I found a clip art picture of a tractor online. Easy to make and I'm pretty sure Mr. C loved it!!
