Crafting behind the scenes

Wow, October got away from me fast! I can’t believe it’s already November. My blog has been quiet, but our house certainly hasn’t. We have been doing crafts galore. First came the Halloween costumes. Eleanore wanted to be a mermaid this year. I found this great mermaid skirt tutorial, and then modified this Tinkerbell costume to make a top out of the same mermaid-y material. I think it turned out well, although certainly far from perfect. Eleanore loved it, so that’s what mattered most!

Adelaide’s cow costume was easy – I just added ears and spots to a white sweats outfit I picked up at the thrift store and then added felt hooves (sewn to elastic to go around her leg) and a simple felt and yarn tail.

Both girls had a great time trick or treating. It was cold, so we didn’t stay out long, but they enjoyed it.

We’re heading to Florida for a week after Thanksgiving, so I need to get moving on my crafting. First up was the quick quiet books. Way back in June, I was in a quiet page swap with a local group. Each mom sewed up 15 quiet pages and then traded, so we all ended up with 15 different pages to put together into our own book. I did them rather simply – duck cloth backing I picked up from the remnant bin for a steal and eyelet holes to string them together with binder loops. I like that I can take them out and switch them around if I need to, so both girls can trade and have their own book. It will be perfect for our road trip to Florida.

Once the costumes and quiet books were complete, I started crafting for Christmas and Adelaide’s birthday. Next up was the crown. I went simple with that this year, too. Adelaide’s birthday pants are very bright and wild (rainbow stripes!), so I thought basic on the crown would be perfect. Just a basic “royal” crown cut out of wool felt with a floral ribbon added as detail.

Next up is the real work… I’m attempting a waldorf baby for the first time. I’m not very good at winging things, so I picked up this book

I debated about spending $25 on it when I could have just spent $50 on a kit with a pre-made head, but I’m so glad I did. It is wonderful and super easy to follow. I’m using basic materials – an old t-shirt, wool I already have, etc. The only thing I had to buy was a doll needle from Joann’s ($4!). I’m only two days in and am already putting the body together. It’s starting to look like an actual baby now, so I can’t work on it during the day anymore though.
