I've been busy sewing!

I thought I'd show some of the things I made for my daughter and my 3 grandkids.




These are the ballet flats I bought for Jennie, then my sweet hubby pounded the snaps on the shoes and I made her 2 sets of charms. The shoes are silver with copper trim, so these charms are copper satin ribbon with a sparkly button in the middle, then the snap is underneath, and they just snap on the shoes. I also made her a black crocheted flower charms to snap on.
This is the cape I made Amelia. It was the no sew pattern that Disney over at Ruffles and Stuff made. I used a fleece blanket that I found. I couldn't find a fleese fabric that I liked. I thought it turned out really cute!

This is a hot chocolate can that I covered with pretty scrapbook paper. It says Jilly Beans on it (my granddaughter's name is Jillian but they call her Jillybean).


These are the cute little tag bean bags I made to put in the little can. I remember how much fun Chauncey use to have putting tennis balls in a tennis ball tube and then putting the lid on it. Of course that was a long time ago!




I made the black crocheted flowers for these gloves, then I sewed silver buttons on for the centers. There are two different size flowers stacked together. I really love how they made the gloves look!



These are super hero capes! Reese loves the Cars Movie so I used Cars fabric for his and Amelia loves horses, so hers is the horse fabric.




This is a car cozy I made for Reese. Chauncey use to collect hot wheal cars, so he gave me 6 cars to put in it!





This is how it looks opened up. The black fabric is a little road to drive the cars on, then they can park in the pockets. I used some different Cars fabric for this.

I also made them crayon cozy's and I gave them coloring books to go along with them. It was so much fun to make them things for Christmas!

I love the Cars fabric you chose for the car cozy. It really turned out nice. I have a 6 year old, who would love such a present from Grandma - maybe I'll send her the link to this post :)

Fantastic crafts!

We have a Jillybean as well, but with a G. Our youngest is Gillian, and she thought her real name WAS Gilly Bean until she was in Kindergarten. ;)
