'I pitty the fool' onesie

I was searching like I do most nights on Pinterest and came across a onesie that they sewed in the shape of Mr. T. with felt on the site: toolsandtoys.net.  I loved watching him when I was growing up so what better thing to do than spread the love and make a couple for some friends and family.  The bottom onesie I forgot to add water to the iron so it bled to the white fabric.  Oops!  So make sure if you use a dark felt to have your iron on steam...it helps a bunch!  Live and learn!

End Table

So my hubby and I were thrifting one weekend (I know he actually went with me and kinda got into it!)  We found an end table for the Colorado room as we call it.  I wish I took a picture of the before I painted it!  Duh!  The wood stain was worn out and the hardware were a beautiful brass.  So needless to say it needed some TLC.  Well a couple hours later and wallah!   I painted the hardware with black spray paint.  The paint dried and I sanded the corners and edges to antique it a little.  Turned out really cute in the room.  :)

onesies, flower pins and scarf

Here are a couple crafts I made over the weekend for some friends and family.  Enjoy!
The little legs are ribbon knotted on the bottom

horrible picture but you kind of get the idea.  I bought pom pom yarn from Michaels and crocheted the scarf
I used felt and fabric to make these different flower pins
