Okay, so it has taken me FOREVER to get back into the swing of things, I've been enjoying taking some time off from crafting...though I have been shopping! I'll show some of the smokin deals I got tomorrow!
Enough chit chat, here's my project: a Tool Belt!!! For the kids! I only made one, but I plan on making another one before valentine's day and then rolling up the boys tools with a chocolate lollipop inside of it for each of the boys. They both got a set of play tools for Christmas, so this is perfect! To see the full tutorial go to: http://www.thecreativemaven.net/2010/04/turn-placemat-into-little-boys-toolbelt.html
My wonderful friend sent me this link a while back and I've been dying to make them! I found the place mat at Target for a smokin .39 cents! It was in the Christmas clearance - 90% off! I didn't even think I'd find one but I decided to check just in case, and voila! 1 place mat! Now I need to go to the dollar store and see if I can grab another one for a buck! If they have them at the dollar store I will definitely let you know, this would make a SUPER cute gift for a little boys birthday party! Here's the pic (oh and next time I wont use all white, but that was what I had around, so I went ahead and used it, then I used blue thread as a contrast):
Just need to find the rest of the tools :) Hope everyone has a great weekend!
