Painted T-shirt

27 Dec

For Christmas 2011, one of my mums and bubs groups decided to have a Secret Santa present exchange. I was given a baby called Josh to find a present for. After a bit of unproductive searching, I decided to buy a plain blue t-shirt and hand-paint it with his name. I happened to be on the phone to my sister (who is A LOT more creative than me) when I was trying to come up with ideas, when we brainstormed a snakes and ladders design. Here is the end result from our combined ideas.

Owl Cushions

27 Dec

Owls are so hot (or is that hoot? haha..) right now. At least, they seem to be everywhere in the crafts world. I thought I would jump on the bandwagon and make a few owl cushions as Christmas presents for Xmas 2011. These were inspired by google image searches for “owl cushions”, then made using different fabrics. I cut the eyes, beak, and wings out, and zig-zag-stitched them onto the main body.
