Fall Shirts

When your grand kids need some fall shirts to wear, who you gonna call..... Grandma!
With a little Cricut magic I had them ready in no time.


 I am having so much fun painting on rocks and then leaving them at the camp grounds for others to find. The scarecrow and the turkey I left over the Thanksgiving weekend and the fairy was left another weekend. I hope whoever finds them enjoys them.

Icky Sticky Frog Felt Board

I bought my granddaughter a book called The Icky Sticky Frog and I decided to make her a felt board to go with it. The frogs tongue rolls up inside his zipper mouth and the giant fish can fold the bugs so they don't fall out.

Painted Dishes

I bought some ceramic dishes and a Sharpie Paint pen. On my Cricut I cut the letters in vinyl, peeled the letters out, applied it to the dishes and drew in the letters with the paint pen. I let it dry for about 10 minutes and then peeled the vinyl off. I baked them in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. You can wash them and the letters won't come off. The egg platter is plastic, I sprayed it with a semi gloss primer on both sides and washed it. I cut the vinyl letters on my Cricut and applied them to the egg platter. I am having way too much fun with my Cricut!

T-shirts and My cricut

I was walking through a boutique and I saw a t-shirt and I knew I just had to make one. 
I bought the shirt for $4.00 at Walmart, then I washed and dried it. I cut the letters on my Cricut using glitter iron on material and ironed it on.
It just screams Texas!

Fixing Monogrammed Hand Me Downs

Cora Belle received these adorable hand me downs but they all had monograms across the front. I slowly removed all of the monograms but it left the material weak in some places, so I put some fun patches on to cover the spots. The dress has an embroidered patch I bought some time ago, I just zig-zagged around the edge and once across the center. The other two I ironed on 2 sided interfacing onto material, cut out the shape and ironed it onto the front. I then zig-zagged around the edges. I hope these clothes will be used many times.

Stuffed Animals for the Church Bazaar

I made some stuffed animals for the Church Bazaar (the stuffed animals booth). I made 6 owls with pockets, 5 fish on a stick, 2 birds and 2 turtles.  The turtles went fast so next year I will make more of them.
