In the middle of cleaning yesterday, I stopped and took some time to craft. I have a to-do list as long as my arm and this is just one of the things I hoped to have finished for his birthday. Beki did it and Kirsten did it. It was time I did it.
Mason has always been obsessed with his age (starting since he was 3) and the letter "M." These shirts are just perfect for him. I found the t-shirts on clearance at Target -- the set of two for less than $2. They were with the boys undershirts in a bag. (The one on the left is actually bright orange. The picture doesn't do it justice.)
This morning baby was awake early to nurse and after he went back to sleep, I decided to get to work on the pencil rolls. The most tedious step has been done: all the pencil dividers have been sewn. Now I just need to finish assembling them. I'm feeling a little more optimistic now. And I might just be able to work on another idea I've been brewing. A "Happy Birthday" bunting. We'll see...
(Kim, if you want to email me I'll give you more information on making the pencil rolls. My email is on my sidebar.)
