Feeling creative juices flowing...

So, I just had to share the cute project Danielle and I made last night. We got together to make our kids Easter presents, which we decided would be a cute beach towel project we found in one of my sewing books. Danielle has 2 kiddos to sew for, so she only finished one last night, for Keagan, but you can see how cute they are. We were quite proud! Carter picked out the monkey fabric himself and Keagan picked out his flame material too.


Then, this morning, Carter went and got the rest of the monkey fabric out. He's been getting it out every day and asking me to make him something. He loves the fabric he picked out and just can't wait to see what his "Easter surprise" is. So, I was trying to think of what I could possibly do with the scraps I had left after I made the towel, as I didn't have enough for pajama pants. So, I am quite proud to say I made my own little pattern up for a backpack for him! I think it turned out pretty well! It took some trial and error on the straps, but I think we got it right now! This picture is sideways, but I think you can see it good still!

I finished both last night. I so want to make more.Thanks for teaching me and thanks for the fun movie night. We should pick fun projects to do like each month and then we can watch a fun movie at the same time. I know that mom loved watching the movie with us too. Maybe one tree hill next time (it should come in like a week)
