The Itsy Bitsy Spider

The Itsy Bitsy Spider crawled up the water spout.
Down came the rain, and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun, and dried up all the rain,
And the Itsy Bitsy Spider went up the spout again.

This page is just too cute not to love. It turns a lullaby into something you can play with as you sing the song. I love how it shows the whole story, and the lady bug is just so cute. There is so much You can do to this page to make it unique, but I chose to leave it simple. I’m sure you could add some flowers or a bird or frog into the grass. I think the idea of a mud puddle hiding under a flap is a great idea.

I chose to make the legs of my spider silver ribbon because it makes it look girly, alone with the purple house and pink pipe. This page was made for a girl, but I will also be doing a boys version of this page but I will be changing the lady bug to a Beatle.

A Voice Recorder that lets you record you singing the lullaby would make a great addition to this page. The pattern and details for this page are at Imagine Our Life

I changed the colors a little bit. But everything is just like the pattern, it is very easy to make. The hardest time Ipad was trying to get the vinyl to stay in the door, while sewing it with a toddler next to me.

Cupcakes Anyone?

My daughter loves cupcakes, so when I saw this pattern I knew I had to make it. After finishing it I am just not sure I am done, I’m thinking about going back and adding a few small things to it and if i do i will post an update. But for now this is what it looks like.

I must say I love every detail about this pattern, it is not one of my designs but it is great. I love how all of the cupcakes came together, all of the cupcake liners we designed by my daughter. She also helped me sew them together. The strawberry is my favorite, not just on here but that is my favorite flavor of cake too. The detail in the recipe book is amazing and once I had it finished it looked just like I wanted it too. I love how it has a pouch for all of the ingredients to be stored.

I love how the oven opens to store all the cupcakes in a trey, it makes it very easy and makes it feel like you really are cooking, I am thinking about going back and adding the top of the stove with knots and a clock. The oven closes with magnets instead of purse snaps, I should have added a sting to the oven and to the back to act like hinges but I didn’t.

I love how the bowl will hold the liners and the tops but this is another place I am thinking of adding something I can store the liners in on the bottom of the page. Also I love the soon and how it curves like a real spoon and it’s pretty stiff. I used a cupcake ribbon on the bowl, but after I made this page I found a baking ribbon that would have been prefect from Hobby Lobby this is another place I am thinking about adding something the cupcakes can sit on after they are made, but I am just not sure how to do that yet. The cupcakes are very simple and I have already thought of adding more favors.

Forklift really works

I think this is one of my favorite pages because it is the first moving part I made. My son loves it but I am scared he will rip it apart because he is not easy with anything. The Forklift is a great page for any little boy and it’s pretty simple too. I used a pattern from Imagine Our Life and it’s almost like hers, but I changed a few things only because I didn’t have the same items available.

20120726-021052.jpg

I love how this page teaches different things like up and down, counting, and how to stack things. The wheels also turn around. I used brass fasteners to hold them into place because I like the way it looked. Also on the bottom crate the attaches to the bottom of the for lift I added lines to the top to make it more like a wood crate, and I used cream felt instead of natural. I used tan felt for the bottom and I did not use pinking shears for the wheels because I do not have any.

For details about how to place it together and what to use go to forklift page, she has all of the details to make this page and so many more. Enjoy!

Any love for swamp people?

So this is the first of my creations, and it is a page inspired by the show on the History Channel, Swamp People. My husband and I watch it every week and so do the kids. So I thought what a better page to come up. I do not have a pattern for all of it, but it was pretty easy to freehand.

This pages has a alligator, 2 bushes with bait hanging, and a removable tag for the alligators tail. On the baits there is hook, and the alligators mouth there is a eye so they can hook together. Also there is a slit in the alligators tail and a tag that slides right through it.
