She’s Crafty

Long time, no type, eh?


Been busy crafting. Yes, that’s right, crafting. I haven’t really crafted at all since the TT was born (what a TRAVESTY!) but lately have had the opportunity to do a little. To wit:


Mei Tai for Leslie Mei Tai for Leslie


This is a baby carrier I made for a dear friend copied off the carrier I myself have. I hand-stitched little words all over it as well but I’m probably not going to do that again because I’m not convinced the stitching will be all that durable.


And then:

My new backpack

My new backpack

This is the new backpack I made for myself out of fabric left over from a different carrier I made for a cousin last spring.  The bag I had before was just a shoulder bag and every time I bent over to help Miles, it would wallop him and pretty much knock him over because it is just so dang heavy. So the backpack will alleviate my poor son’s being taken out every time we go out. It turned out pretty well if I do say so myself and I planned it all out on my own WITHOUT a pattern, thank you very much.  Best of all, it was free because I had the material left over.

I”ve also started beading some rings based on a pattern from a ring a friend gave me but have no pics of that yet.  AND I’ve already started crafting away for another DEAR FRIEND who shall remain nameless for her baby next spring.  Since it usually takes me the whole entire pregnancy to get my gifts done, it is not too soon for that.


Plus we’ve been busy doing stuff:

    You be a GENIUS. That accounts for both your splendid backpack made without a pattern, AND your capacious forehead. Something’s got to hold all that grey matter together. Do not be silly about your forehead. It is a lovely. I bet that both Troy and Miles who is growing up MUCH TOO FAST agree with me.

    1. My backpack had better be in the mail. WITHOUT A PATTERN??? You need to market it on ETSY.

    2. I hate secrets. It better not be anyone I know or I’ll be mad!

    3. Your forehead is the same loveliness it has always been.
