Alright, I admit it, I have a problem. I'm absolutely addicted to Pinterest. But the other night my kids busted me on there looking at my "make with kids" board and they committed me to stop looking and start making. These are pretty atrocious little creatures (inspired by these) but we had such a good time going through the scrap piles together. They are 100% designed by a 5 and 7 year old. I did the sewing and they did everything else.

show me the money

I bookmarked this tutorial many moons ago and last week's 3 little boy birthday parties was the perfect motivation for me to do something about it.
I'm positive that I was way more excited about these than the recipients were.

They turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself. Might have to make ME a wool houndstooth wallet.

The Amy Butler scrap drawer strikes again, or, a quilt with feet

This is destined for a friend's pink nursery...4th girl!
Yummy pink linen on the back.

I'm pretty sure I won't be able to resist making more of these, some may even make it to the shop...
