Crafty Crocodile


I have been quite the crafty little crocodile lately. The rainy days this week have left me inside staring at my piles of hoarded fabric. I finally found a few ways to put the fabric to good use. I am always so inspired when I see fabulous projects or room decorations or outfits on your blogs and thought I should share some of my recent crafty fun too.


The aprons were made using the Martha Stewart dishtowels. I actually drove to and went into K-Mart just to purchase them. If you are reading this Martha, please add your line to Target stores because I really really really dislike going into K-Mart. Martha's towels are very large- which is fabu for a dishtowel. However, I found after making the first apron they would be too long for a toddler. So I cut a few of the towels in the package down to make some for my toddler friends. Not wanting to waste the adorable fabric with ric-rack and always looking to embellish things, I turned that excess fabric into a little pockets on each apron. This project is incredibly easy- even for beginning sewers and children.


These little outfits were also easy once I figured out how to make the pants. I had to tweak my self-made pattern a few times but I eventually made it work (while channeling Tim Gunn of course!). They are gifts for several friend's tot's upcoming birthdays and a few extra for whatever- craft show or new baby gifts or ....
