Guitar Tee

For week's 4 challenge, I made this shirt: I must admit I haven't ever used wonder under before and now that I have, I have a list of things I want to try!!! If you haven't tried it, you must try it this week! Why?Well... It is cheap ($2-$3 a yard) It is is easy (cut out your shape, peel backing off, iron for 10 seconds, DONE) It is fun (I think it is my newest favorite craft supply!) This shirt took me maybe 10 minutes to do- and half of that was reading and re-reading the … [Read more...]

Hugs for Grandma & Grandpa

Tonight we made "Hugs" for my husband's parents who live out of state! Here's How: 1. Measure the length of your kid's arms on butcher paper (you could use the back side of wrapping paper too). 2. Trace each of their hands on the ends of their "arms." (Or, even cuter, make a hand print with some ink- I just thought of that one!) 3. While you are cutting out the hands and arms, have your child write (or decorate) a heart-shaped note. 4. Tape the heart in the center of their arms. 4. Take … [Read more...]

Weaved Ribbon Wipee Case

A couple years ago I bought a bunch of matching ribbon on clearance in fun fall colors. I thought I would make some cute bows or something, and I did make a few, but Leah only needs so many orange bows! (In fact I don't think she ever wore the ones I did make her because orange is not the most popular color in her closet!) I decided I wanted to use this ribbon for a craft where I could use them altogether- alone the ribbons are kind of blah, but together they are darling! Over the weekend … [Read more...]

Hey Somewhat Simple readers!I am so excited that today I get to be here on Somewhat Simple. Isn't she just great? Seriously, everything about her blog just gives me butterflies.Anyyyway.My name is Erika and I'm the author and crafter over at Oops! I Craft My Pants. My cute husband brought me a plain bottle home the other day. He told me that he had a "vision" of what I could do to it. To be completely honest-- I didn't have the same vision. In fact, I had no idea what route I was going to go … [Read more...]

Wooden Spool Dolls

My SIL, Megan, started making these over a year ago and hers are DARLING!!! Last year I decided to make some for my kids and the ones I made were less than fantastic... in fact they looked an awful lot like quazimoto. Last week at the craft store, Leah saw the little spools and begged me to make some again for her so I thought I would give it one last try. Usually you use spools with round balls that you glue as the head, but unfortunately the store was out of the right size spools, so I … [Read more...]
