I-Spy bag and a Tractor T

Last night I whipped up an I-Spy bag for Emma.




It was quite a quick project.  I didnt follow a tutorial but a quick search has come up with a great tutorial on Skip To My Lou.  She has a beautiful blog and a facebook page.  If you 'like' her page, you can then download a beautiful printable calendar for 2012

The kindy-boy's tees are getting a bit grubby, so we did some stamping to hide the stains spruce them up.  I so often have to let go of wanting to do it myself so that it's just right, because often they arrive just as the project starts.  



His corner:  




My corner:




We adults always want it to line up, don't we?  I'm so pleased that I've hung this up to dry and not quietly slipped it into the bin as a project 'that didn't really work out'.  He will end up LOVING this t-shirt.  That's what counts.


Using a piece of felted wool works well as a stamp pad.  It works better than having the ink on a hard surface.

Kimmy, you're such a busy body.I'm sitting here feeling rather frazzled from lack of sleep and need to sew up a chair bag for somebody, by this afternoon. Been meaning to make a spy bag for Kirsten. Love the stamping on the T. One of the school moms is coming over to my place at the end of the month to do a stamping workshop and other scrapbooky type ideas. She said she'll do it all with fabric. I'm not into proper scrapbooking, but thought I could do a few gift tags etc. using paper and fabric and stamps. Can't wait!! Have a super week!!xoxox
