Bloggers...we have lift off : :

This weekend I began work on the list the boys gave me -- in our effort to encourage more boy items being made by yours truly. I am not sure how much of the list will make it to an actual tangible thing, but so far so good!

Number one on that list :  Jet pack = finished! Oh, I wish you could see his little fist in the air.
I planned to hand embroider "Jacob's Jet Pack" and some other extra details, but Jacob insisted that it was already perfect. I figure those things can always be added later, if he changes his mind.
With all the zipping around one must do when a jet pack is strapped to your back, it made getting a great picture of Jacob wearing it a little difficult. He was so excited!
Now, I'm onto something special for Kaiden, hmn? Let me know if you have any neat ideas. He requested his own fabric, so I may have to check out the process over on Spoonflower.

I shared my newest owl doll late Friday, and feel a better picture is an order.
She sold before making it to my etsy, but I plan on making many more with this design. When I read Patty's comment, "she looks like a baby"  I agreed right away and realized that this must be why she's my new favorite.
I am also loving this Amy Butler Fabric - scraps from one of Cynthia's projects. I'm thinking I may have to get some for my stash.  : )

It was a wonderful weekend. I hope yours was too!

  13. That jet backpack has got to be the cutest thing ever! Love it, wish I had a little boy in my family to get it for, but there is just a slew of girls. I'll definitely pass it along to friends and family though. Good work.

  19. Thank you so much for all the wonderful comments! I want to try to put a tutorial together for this project sometime, so you can make one for your little boy(s). It cost less than 3 dollars to make and I used mostly felt made from recycled plastic bottles - so it is super eco-friendly!

    Thanks again for visiting!

  20. Okay first of all, I love owls passionately, and secondly, I can't think of a single little boy in the world who wouldn't adore a jet pack.
