Just a rectangle, folded, hemmed and sewed together and poof you have a pillow case...a iron on monkey and some fabric paint...yes those are his hand prints...but he wiggles, so we will just always remember that he wiggles...later I am thinking about adding some thick ribbon on the end.
I built this toy box (well I put it together)....painted and then realized I didn't have enough paint or a sealant. I had to order more paint since the green I liked was discontinued...I used glitter paint around the edges and I have some wood letters and wood jungle animals I will glue on after I seal the paint...I love it!!!
I got 1.5 yrds of this material and these are the scraps...made into pillows...I am amazing...I can make pillows!!! wow :) actually the fact that I remembered how to tread my mom's old sewing machine...I am pretty proud of myself.
So Johnny needs a toy box...there are toys EVERYWHERE so I got a kit and have been working on it..to make it special...I had a Bambi toy box when I was young...I used to climb into it :) Also Johnny has gotten old enough to have a pillow and blanket when he sleeps...to make him more comfortable...so he uses knit blanket I made when he was born and then this special quick sew pillow case.
This is what I did with my Sunday.
