May came and went way too fast, but I did manage to sneak a few quick projects in this month.
I know this is thrilling and you’re all gonna want to jump up and make one of your own. It’s (drum roll) a scrabble bag! The little bag that came with our board game ripped so I made this one to replace it. Impressive, I know.
For Nathan’s birthday we got him a bike trailer so we can go on family bike rides (hopefully this summer). I also love it because it doubles as a jogging stroller. The only problem is that Nathan is a leaner. Always has been. He just always seems to lean to the right when he sits in this thing and the straps really rub his neck. So I made these nifty little neck protectors. Not great pictures, I know.
Don’t ask me how I made them, I don’t remember. It was a make it up as you go project and I’m lucky the finished product didn’t turn out as something completely different. I can tell you this: my Infantino sling was recently recalled so after I sent in a piece of it to prove I needed a replacement, I spent many hours with my seam ripper tearing it apart and I saved all the pieces. This is just the first of many projects to have a little piece of the sling.
My favorite project this month was a last minute one that I should have done years ago. I bought this home sign (you can see it hanging on the wall) years ago and it’s been hanging white and boring on my living room wall ever since. I finally took the plunge and painted it midnight blue. Then I sanded the edges to give it a nice antiqued look. I love it! Now I just have to find some cute things so hang from it.
