Scrap Fabric Toddler Fun

Last night I was in a crafting mood, because dinner was done and the kitchen was clean I actually had time to sit down at the sewing machine and make something. Thanks to my hubby who loaded the dishwasher for me. :)

So there has been an empty wipe case laying on the floor of my daughter's room, I know I was too lazy to pick it up and put it away, and I thought that it would be fun for her to play with. Well a thought came to me, I have a ton of fabric scraps that I really can't make much with so why not make a fun toy for my daughter to play with.

I pulled out my fabric bins and rummage through them to find long strips of fabric. I was in luck I found a few. So I got to work. Here's what I started out with.



It doesn't look like much now but it will.

I sewed the pieces together. I didn't even care that the pieces were even or completely straight know that it was going to be for a toddler. When I was done I had a long piece of umatched fabric strips.

I stuffed them into the wipe box,


and then handed it my daughter who was super excited to play with it as you can see from the pictures.




Don't mind the half naked baby, dad has just given her a bath. A fun, cheap and easy baby toy that will provide endless hours of fun. You can even add on to it for more colors or even textures.

Homemade Sugar Body Scrubs

A couple weeks ago I decided that I would try to make some homemade body scrubs to give as gifts to a couple ladies that I visit at Church. I had pinned a few recipes that I used.

I settled for the recipes that were on Little Birdie Secrets blog. She tells you what you need and how much.

I used the Lemon recipe, Ginger and the Vanilla. I also added my own twist to them. I added some extra essential oils from a friends DoTerra supply.

With the Lemon I used the Citrus blend, in the Ginger I used a lavender blend and with the vanilla I added in peppermint, mmmm. They all turned out great and super yummy smelling. Almost too good that you could eat it!


I used 1/2 pint jars which were the perfect size!
 Then I used the vinyl that I had received from Cricut to create a cute label for the jars. Using my Accent Essentials cartridge I cut out my border and my letters were cut out using my Plantin Schoolbook and Alpahlicious Cartidges.

I love how it all turned out! I will definetly be making more to give out as gifts!
