Halloween Apron and a Yummy Treat

Months ago, I was in Joann's with my mother; we were looking through the clearance section for treasures and Mum spied some Halloween fabric. She promptly purchased the rest of the bolt and handed it to me and requested that I make it into an apron for her birthday.
I wouldn't have thought finding the perfect apron pattern would be so hard....but it was...ridiculously so. Then Dana at Made had a Celebrate Yellow Month and Delia Creates joined the party with a tutorial for her Pumps and Pearls Apron. The PERFECT apron for my mother. It was easy to make and I LOVE the style.
So super happy with how it turned out!
Making an apron inspired me to bake! Don't these Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies look yummy?
Here is my mother modeling her new and fabulous Halloween apron and the fun kitchen towel I made her!

Next up: A special project just for my sister and her 3 Day Walk team and a little something for the season.

My Boys Monday

Nothing from me this week...except for the terrifying knowledge that Christmas is only two months away...and I'm already feeling disorganized and completely unprepared! Lots of presents to make...and very little time. Here are a couple things I would like to complete for the boys. I would love to make Munch this cozy car caddy from homemade by jill. She has lots of cute ideas on her site, including a car mat. Christmas next year, perhaps?
I love this car pillow by Noodlehead. Wouldn't it be perfect for Baby Nox? Maybe I'll add something that krinkles or a bell for added baby fun.
Any creative plans on your Christmas List? I would love to hear them!!

Activity Bag for Mama's Little Pirate

Munch celebrated his 2nd birthday last week and since we planned a pirate themed party for him I decided to make a couple pirate themed gifts.
First up I decided to make him an activity bag. Munch always seems to need something to do when we go out...especially when we decide to brave a restaurant. I got this pattern from One Yard Wonders. It's really the first pattern I've made from the book, which is pretty sad considering I've had the book for a year. I love all the patterns and have several on my to do list. However my list is about a mile long!
Then I made a cute crayon roll. Complete with Toy Story crayons...we've only lost one so far :o)
Of course I had to add a couple coloring books too!!
And it's a hit!! As long as he's got his activity bag, Sonic sunglasses and Mama's keys he's good to go!

Scrappy Saturday

I've slowly been getting better at finding time to do craft stuff. Very slowly, but it's happening :o)

3 Day Basket Collab with Crandallation

As I have mentioned previously my little sister is participating in the 3 Day Walk for the Cure. I'm SO super proud of her.
In hopes of raising a little money for the cause my best bud Alisha and I did a little collaboration and put together a girly gift basket. It will be sold at The Enchanted Artist and proceeds will go to The Pink Galas for 3 Day Walk for the Cure.
My additions are a bib, tag blanket, brag book and set of three burp cloths.

Here is the completed basket! To see a list of Crandallation's items check out her blog!
I want to thank every person walking for this cause and everyone who has made a contribution to help find a cure!!
