Pillow pets, Mommy version

Well the month when I should of had the most to show you I haven't taken the time to post.  Lets do a little recap shall we?

For the little girls I made pillow pets.  Thinking they would be cheaper than purchasing (they were) and pretty simple (the pillow part was, the head? another story)

The bunny turned out really cute I think.  I used an embroidery design for the face and that is what made it turn out so cute.  
For the puppy I couldn't find a design so I had to come up with my own face.  I am not very good at this!

But it still got some loving!

I embroidered on the tags.  (the shinny stuff between the letters will come off)

Here is the tutorial I used.  Next time (if there is one, I think the puppy might just get a new head although KeyKey really wants a penguin.) I would adjust the pillow to be wider so it folds up to more of a standing animal. Our cousin go a genuine (but not as cute) pillow pet and it is more of a rectangle than a square.

I was going to make our cousin one too.  But went with an owl pillow instead.

Family Memory Game

My Mom loves games.  She always plays games with the kids when we go up to her house.  So when I saw this idea I knew I had to do it for her.
I started with a purchased memory game...I have been searching the thrift store for a month with no luck!  The game I purchased ended up not having one of those trays to hold the cards so I came up with my own box.

I took the cards and spay painted them.  First pink (because that is what I had, that or orange?) It didn't cover well so I spay them white.  Then for fun I went back over with a quick spotty pink job.  I like how it turned out.

I printed the pictures on sticker paper 2" X 2". It covered the cards perfectly. I sprayed the cards with a clear acrylic. This made the paper a little transparent. I would paint that side of the card first if I were to make this game again.

She will be here today so we will see if it is a hit or not!
