birthday crafties.


On the morning of a birthday party for Autumn's friend, my thought process went a little like this: I can spend an hour getting a present for the party or an hour making a present. One would be junkier and cost me a good $15-$20. The other would be free (or at least using supplies I already have bought) and would be 10 times cooler. So we crafted away and didn't have to get out of our jammies.

The result: An apron with a matching journal.

That is extremely, extremely cute! What I'm sewing right now isn't. It's purple. It's polyester. It's ugly. It's nearly complete.

...and I thought you were showing crafts for parties you were THROWING not attending!

Very cute! I love the fabric. Do you remember where you got it/who made it?

Lia: Sorry to disappoint. Crafts for parties being thrown are very behind and not much for showing.

Jeszie: I believe it was clothworks or marcus brothers, but I can't find it anymore on Fabricdepot. (It was also available in orange and brown) Do check out the happy campers from moda, though.

Hi! Okay so...you probably don't remember me but I think I used to babysit for you! I stumbled upon your blog by accident and I've been reading it and I'm pretty sure it's you guys. You only had 4 back then. Oh, by the way, my name is Jill Hacking.
