Fall is just around the corner which means it’s time to start thinking about my next list of projects…

In the meantime, I have one more laminated cotton creation that I never posted.

My family headed to Maine this past month and it would be the first time my little nephew had flown. He’s not always one for sitting still, so I wanted to make him something small enough for plane travel that would help to keep him busy. So I revisited the oh so cute crayon folio, but this time in laminated cotton.

I’m so in love with this fabric that I was really excited to use it again.


Here are the front and back, ready to be sewn together (this got to be a serious number of layers of laminated cotton and my sewing machine was not pleased with me, but we got through it – literally).

Ta da! Finished and filled with all sorts of fun stickers, paper & crayons to play with.

It’s so darn cute, I love it (especially the little outside pocket).



While posting my recent embroidery projects I started to get inspired by the number of crafty things I’ve actually done in the last few months. So I thought I’d revisit a couple others in order to keep the inspiration coming.

My sister had her first baby 2 months ago and I wanted to make something for her nursery. Playing off her love of owls, I found a really cute pattern for an owl mobile made from baby socks!

I”m not as good about taking photos of my baking, but here are a few from my annual chocolate making extravaganza with Jess.
