Recently, I've found time to play with two online tutorials that I have been itching to try for while.

1. The Crayon Apron Tutorial. Samantha, from Bobaloo!, shares this tutorial on Prudent Baby. I loved that it was a great way to use up sewing scraps that otherwise are too small for other projects. I'm planning on making several for toddler gifts this year.
Full Step-by-step Tutorial Found HERE.

Freezer Stencil Tees. Tutorials for these have been all over the internet and now I see why. They are so easy and fun! I decided to add fabric details to make them multi-dimensional. As you can see I just stenciled a ballerina and then added tulle to great her tutu.
Full step-by-step photo tutorial, from Dana at MADE, found HERE.

*PS... for stencil images, just use google images (e.g. strawberry silhouette)


  1. Your crayon apron turned out ADORABLE! Thanks for posting the link to my tutorial, too!

    I have yet to try freezer paper stencils but I really want to, it looks like so much fun. Oh the possibilities, both for my sweet girl and my little guy!

  2. I really like the crayon apron. It is the first of its kind I have seen. Thanks!

  3. I love the crayon apron, and am featuring your crayon idea in my roundup today. Please feel free to check it out.


Question or comment? I'd love to hear it!
