Tuesday's Features

Gosh.  It's been a busy morning already!  I had to drive Josh to school.  So I'd have time to snap a picture of him in his new shirt we made the other night.  And you know what?  No matter how fast of a camera I get - he still manages to close his eyes in the pictures!! :)
And I just noticed that he put on the grey jeans instead of the black ones.  That little booger.  He chose to put the blah blah blah inside the bubble.  Love it.  Well.  Like it.  I already have some plans to redo a shirt like this. 

I worked on a few custom orders this morning.  My cousins play baseball and their mom wanted towels for their bags.  {To wash off the balls/their hands/ whatever else they use them for} So I printed their logo onto printable fabric and dyed some flour sacks.  Those suckers were big (30X30) so I folded them into fourths to make them 30X7.  Long enough to tie to their bags, short enough to handle.  Just have to sew around the outside.


But here are today's features!  Craft on! :) And remember 2/28 is the blanket party.  Link up any blanket you've got!  AND 3/1 is the Feb. Blogger of the Month party.  Come back and link up your best project you made in Feb!  My Vinyl Designer is sponsoring it again!  Thanks gals! :) Their vinyl designs seriously rock -- go check them out!!
