A new type of pacifier holder

I finally got myself to do some new type of pacifier holder that are easier to wash as you can take the metal clip away, they have at both ends snap fasteners, it's so smart!

Rollie Pollie - Pouf seat

Using the pattern from Dana Made it.com for her Rollie Pollie

Apart from the fact that I put the handle on the bottom, it looks quite good  :-)
I used little sagex balls as filling, maybe next time I'll try some softer material

The fabric is from Ikea, I really love the design

Crafty weekend

Mr. Guapo recently purchased this book "Leg & lær, 1001 sjove aktiviteter til børn fra 0-6 år" because it was assessed that we need to stimulate our child... mmm.. so here we are Mr. Cutie Pie and I trying to make a tambourine :

First we gathered two paper plates on which he could draw

Then according to the book we had to take some cornflakes, let him put them on one of the plate, but what actually happened is him almost eating all the cornflakes...

so after some tough battle to get them on the plate and not in his mouth, I quickly sealed the two plates together with some hot glue.

Again according to the book one has to then play with the tambourine with some background music and show to the child how to beat the rythme, what actually happened is him desperatly trying to open it and get to the cornflakes

He eventually opened the damn tambourine! Stakkels lille dreng :-)

PS: on my book the authors are Dr. Roni Cohen Leiderman and Dr. Wendy S. so I assume there is an english version, the curious thing is that on the web I found the same book with the same cover pictures where the author is Susan Elisabeth, go figure

Scrap month contribution

Once again Frk Turkis came up with a great idea: the scrap month ! So here is my little contribution: I took the idea from ComfortStitching - scrap happy lounging , illustrated the steps with some pics and used the project as an applique to this cute shoebag from makingitfun.blogspot.com (tutorial) .

Here it goes: the final result

1. my bunch of fabric scraps

2. a matching thread

3. an elephant template that I drew on the wrong side of a piece of fabric

4. on the right side of the fabric I started sewing my little fabric scraps in a random way

5. until the whole area was covered

6. then I cut out the elephant

7. Applied it on the piece of fabric (applique) that I used to make the shoebag

and done!

PS: sorry for the quality of the pics sth went wrong with my cam...
