having sew much fun!

This is my day late Crafty Thursday post!! I barely sat down at the computer yesterday and honestly didn't even know what day it was!

I tried to put a little but more thought into some of my Christmas gifts this year. I really am enjoying learning to sew and craft, so I thought I would put my "skills" to work and make a few things for my kiddos and my nieces.

The one I was most excited about was this crayon apron for my niece Halle. I followed a tutorial by Samantha from Bobaloo!, found on Prudent Baby, which are both awesome blogs to follow btw! Halle was getting artsy things for Christmas from "Santa" so I thought it would go along with it perfectly. It wasn't nearly as hard as I thought and I really liked the way it turned out!

Isn't it cute?! I had my eye on this fabric for a while and thought it was perfect for this. And I have to say I was happy when she put it on Christmas day and started coloring. (although she could very well never touch it again once it got home!)

I also made a SUPER cute crayon roll for my niece Kerrigan, but, it is the case of the missing Christmas present. It is NOWHERE to be found. I seriously think it may have gotton thrown away. :( So I owe her one in the near future. And unfortunately I didn't even take a picture of it.
I also made some things for my kiddos but need to take some pics of them! So, stay tuned!


  1. Too adorable & as with Eva's creations....I love the fabric!!

  2. THAT apron is adorable!!! Good job!

  3. Soo cute! Bela is way too little to color (she just eats the crayons), but maybe make and set aside??? Totally gorg!
