Hey sweet lady!! Right now you are just getting your four top teeth. I know that you would much rather chew on things like rattles, socks, and mommy’s yoga pants. Maybe this little Home Away from Home will make it better??
See you can go right inside, right through your little heart door. This project only took mama 30 sewing hours, 5 cursing hours, and 3 cutting hours. Not that I was counting. Nothing would make me regret starting this
hell of a project I mean easy little project for your little sweet face…
Maybe you want to send me some letters about how bad your little gums are killin’ ya??
See, they even have heart stamps. Sent with love right??
Or maybe you just want to pick some fruit from the orange/apple/pear/lemon tree I made for you? Our little tree grows anything we want it to! How did I make all of that fruit? Only eight little sewing steps in each little piece. No biggie.
First you just…
1. trace shape onto wonder under
2.cut out around the line
3. iron on to all of the different colors of felt
4. cut out the felt on traced line
5. sew velcro to a matching color of felt
6. iron on fruit to velcro felt piece
7. cut out shape again
8. sew around both pieces of felt
repeat for all piece of fruit, don’t forget to sew on stem and leaf to apples and oranges too!
Or maybe you want to peak out of the curtains and wave hello?
You could also water your plants and flowers? The little watering can comes off for you to play with!
OK, so you just want to sit by the basket and chew everything in sight. I get it. I don’t know who I am more proud of. You for turning one, and do all kinds of grown up things like get four teeth at once. Or me for finishing this crazy task I decided would be “fun” for your first birthday. This from the lady that turned on a sewing machine for the first time last November.
I just know it is worth it. I get to see you follow your brother inside and talk to him in your little house. I hope you love in the years to come little Ellie.
your tired of sewing,
happy and content,
