A Fairy Wand, Lunchbag and Pajama Shorts

I’ve stared at the mess that is my sewing/craft area for days on end and decided I wouldn’t tackle anything until I finally got my shelves hung (things are stalled due to a malfunctioning planer), but obviously I wasn’t able to keep away.

The Fairy Wand

The Set

The Fairy Wand: The fairy wand is for an upcoming birthday girl to go with her twirly skirt. I’ve been wanting to try to make one of these for a while and they are totally simple. I really lucked out because I found this glittery, stiff felt at JoAnne’s that was perfect for this craft. I just tied some ribbon streamers, embroidered a little C and after a little hot glue…voila!

The Lunchbag

The Lunchbag: Our 11 year anniversary is this weekend and I saw this VW fabric months ago online and really wanted to get some to make something for my vintage VW obsessed husband. I never bought any and then it got really hard to find any at all online. Low and behold I make a trip to our local quilting shop and come face to face with it. I knew I had to get at least 1/2 a yard. He takes his lunch every day so I thought I would try my hand at a lunchbag. I bought some iron on vinyl and put it on the front and back of the fabric, then I used this pattern. It turned out much better than I had expected, but we’ll see if he actually uses it 🙂

PJ Shorts

The Pajama Pants: My dear Little Rooster often begs me to make something for him, as he sees me making so much for his sister and other people. While walking through JoAnne’s one day I found this firefighter fabric and thought that he would love it. Then and there I decided to get a couple other fabrics and do some PJ shorts for him. I used this pattern from McCalls and just shortened the pants. I’m hoping to get a robe done and some PJ pants for this winter.
