Handmade Gifts – cloud decoration

2nd 02 2018. Posted in Family Life, Magical Moments at Home by elliekelly

 

I love crafting. I don’t really have a favourite type of craft, I just love to try new things out. I think my plan to handmake lots of gifts this year is going to really help me get back into crafting and making.

This is decoration I made for my friends little boys 1st birthday.

 

I have made the felt clouds before for Neive’s mobile so I went back to watch my YouTube video to remind myself what to do. The design is a mashup from different pintrest cloud decorations while looking for some inspiraiton. I loved the rainbow ribbon details I saw on some crafts and I really felt like making some pompoms. I also love these hoops and plan on making a few other things with them this year. If you love crafting and haven’t work with felt before it’s a great medium to work with and really versatile.

You can see how I make the clouds on my other post here. And them I simpley glued in some ribbons and sewed along the bottom.

These mini pompom are so cute and easy to make. You just need a fork and some wool. Here is a video I used on YouTube.

 

What to make next?

Handmade Gifts – Cookie Jar

21st 01 2018. Posted in Family Life, Magical Moments at Home by elliekelly

 

A year of handmade gifts

 

The second gift I made for my friends little boy (see the Story Stick gift in this blog) was two cookie jars. One a choc chip cookie monster jar and one smarties rainbow jar.

It took me a while to find a recipe that sounded good and then of course as it was a gift i had to test it out to make sure they tasted good (they did!).

This is a link to the recipe I used, you can get a cup to grams converter on a Google search. I then made two tags to match and added the rest of the recipe and cooking time to the back.

 

 

Next i have a 1st birthday party gift to think up and make! i think i might need pintrest for this one.

  This is the perfect baby sensory play on days as hot as these! It’s sooo hot!! I do love the sun and the heat but i would rather be on holiday when it’s this hot, by a pool with a cold drink. Running around after a baby and hosting kid’s parties in 30+ heat […]

Baby box sensory play

6th 06 2017. Posted in Magical Moments at Home by elliekelly

  The classic baby in a box game. I must say Neive wasn’t as keen to go inside the box as i thought she would be. We haven’t done lots of play with tunnels yet though so i think she was a bit unsure. I cut some holes in the top of the box and […]
