It's one of those projects that took me forever to finish, not because it was hard to do, just because things kept coming up and this one got pushed aside. I started it this summer and finally finished it yesterday. I feel terrible, the kids kept on asking me if their blanket was done and I still have to make Miss E's!
I received a package a while back from Rachel of Handmade Charlotte with some of her new amazing Stencils, as well as some Plaid FolkArt Paint. I and the kids were really excited. They kept on asking me when we were going to use our gracious gift. I finally decided they needed some blankets for our vacation- this was in june! And so we decided we would use all the letters in our set and Mister M really wanted some stars.
With the stencils, we painted an alphabet border. We did most of the letters in black and the ones in Mister M's name in different colors, we broke the letters line up with some blue stars. Mister M helped me with some of the painting, he loved being involved so much.
I used a piece of sweatshirt material I had to make the blanket. I could have left it as is, but I decided to add a colorful border to match the pyjamas I made as well.
With the same stencils I stamped some fabric I had and created some pyjamas. I used mostly the stars and a few M's on the body.
I used the Banyan T-shirt pattern- just added some long sleeves. I love all the Figgy's patterns- so stylish and fresh. I cannot wait for their new collection.
And I made some Titchy Threads Fancy Pant Leggings for the bottoms. I am so excited because I've made plenty of FPL's before, but Laura recently added some bigger sizes to her pattern ( 0-3mths to 10 years old) and I made Mister M his first pair! He loves them. I love them.
The Fancy Pants Leggings are part of the Sew Fab Bundle pattern sale that is going on until october 8th. Check it out, 26 pdf patterns for 29$. How cool is that? You can also check out the Titchy Thread website for the pattern and some pretty cool skinny jeans are next in line... I can't wait! Laura's pattern are always so professional.
So you need to check out the Handmade Charlotte Stencils. They come in sets and are so cool. There are scissors in my set I cannot wait to use- maybe for me this time. I just love creating my own fabric!
The stencil are awesome, lots of great ones for so many fun craft ideas.... by the way they are available at Michaels and online too- check them all out here.
Sorry for the terrible photos- my camera is wonky again! Hopefully this time they will give me a new one. I hate having a lemon... I rather have a strawberry! hihihi...
