A girl needs a bib…

1U2A1228

(Yes yes, I’m a BIG “Game of Thrones” fan.)

A girl needs a bib. Or a boy.  Or, anyone who drools on a regular basis.  I imagine, this is what Lady Catelyn Stark did in her spare time in Lord Eddard Stark’s solar when her kids were babies/toddlers… I guess she could have still been making them for Rickon had she not gone to investigate.  (No spoilers here, don’t worry, just in case I have a reader who hasn’t seen it and wants to see it.)

I like this bib.  I like this bib so much, I kinda want to wear it.  No, I don’t.  I was just kidding about wearing it.  I should make an apron with a direwolf, definitely more fitting for a crazy fan who is also a housewife.

Busy Toddler Purse

1U2A1206

This here is a “Busy Toddler Purse”.  What’s a busy toddler purse?  It’s a spin off of the Quiet Book.  I thought of it one day when my toddler was playing with the buckles on her high chair.  She just wouldn’t stop asking me to unbuckle it so that she can buckle it over and over again.  So I thought, wouldn’t it be nice if there is a toy where there is a bunch of buckles?  Of course I turned to Pinterest and of course there are!  But a buckle purse for toddler?  Nope, none, they don’t exist!  You heard it first here!  Oh wait, Amazon has a Buckle Toy “Buddy” Backpack.  Oh darn, and I thought I invented something!  Well, at least I didn’t have to spend $27.99.  I only had to buy the buckles and straps since I have tons of scraps of fabric.

So this purse here has 2 handles, 4 buckles, 2 Velcro fake pockets, 2 snap buttons, and a functional zipper!  She can wear it like a purse or hold it like a tote bag. This thing kept my daughter busy for an hour.  One hour of free time!  Imagine that!

On the other side is 2 pockets for a fake ID and a fake credit card.  I am thinking i can laminate 2 cards, punch a hole in each card and tie it to the red ribbon so they don’t get lost.

And, I made 2!

One ways, Turnabouts, & Roundabouts

Turnabouts, roundabouts and one ways… Using painter’s tape, I’ve turned my house into speed zone for preschoolers and toddlers.  Okay,  just one preschooler and a toddler.  I thought this will stop the 4 yr old from running over the 1 yr old…hahaha!  1 yr olds will go whichever way she wants.  But for some reason this makes it more fun for me to watch!

Zipping through…
