Wearable curtain...

Did you ever thought to wear your curtains? Crazy idea, right? Well, not so much. That is if you’ll follow the next tutorials, your curtains will make you look so very stylish.

Kelly Hicks from Kelly Hicks Design gave a very detailed tutorial at Tastefully Tattered on how to transform a curtain into a skirt.

Wilma + Winston showed us how to transform a curtain into a dress. The dress turned out so feminine, I love it!
Pretty cool!

Painting tip

When my cutie pie wants to paint I have the perfect place for her paints, an ice cube tray!

Everything is less massy this way.  

What do you use to hold your child paints?

Birthday Shirt

My little one is about to turn 3 next month and I want to make something special for her very special day. So after browsing the internet for ideas I’ve decided that my special project will be a birthday shirt. They are very simple to make, and with toddler and 3 months old baby at home, simple it’s just what I need.  So, here are some ideas for this project:

“Sweet” birthday shirt tutorial on Adventures of aCouponista.

Layered style on The Gardner’s Dirt.
Flowery lucky number on Ducks in a Row.
Pretty fabric number on Garage Sales R Us.
Children drawings birthday shirt. Visit It’s Two AM for the tutorial. 
Everybody's Birthday Shirts
“Favourite things” birthday shirt on This Little Project.
King/Quinn for a day. Use your freezer paper to create fun print on a birthday shirt.  For all the details visit Kidoinfo.

Easiest way to create a number on a birthday shirt, just use cotton transfer paper.  See example on Grey Grey Designs.

So many options to choose from!

Rainbow Necklace

Last week I borrowed from the library this book for my toddler.
Let me tell you, this book is so cute, L wanted me to read it to her over and over again.

And when I read to her from this page an idea came to me, to make the same rainbow necklace with my daughter.
 The materials for this project were colourful drinking straws and thread.


Here is my cutie pie in action. Offcourse I did helped her allot.

The inspiration on the left, the finished product on the right. Cute!
