Krafts By Mum

So as many of you may already know and some of you may not know I am no longer selling Scentsy. But in my efforts to still make some money while being a SAHM (Stay at home Mom) I've taken up a new adventure. My new adventure is that I've set up an Etsy Shop. Etsy is a place where people can buy and sell Handmade and Vintage Items. Since I enjoy being crafty I decided to set up a shop and sell some things I've made. Right now there's only a couple of items on there, but I'm working on making some more things. So, spread the word for me and check back often to see what new things I have for sale! Oh, and if there's anything out there you'd like, let me know and I'll see if I can't make it for you!

Here's the link to my store:

Super Kids

The kids like to have me tie blankets around them like capes so I decided to make them each one. I just used what I already had in my fabric stash! To make them I just measured the width of their shoulders and then added 1 inch for the top. Then I measured how how long I wanted the capes to be and I just slowly increased the width as I went to the bottom. Basically making an "A" frame shape. Then I applied the applique letter (these ones I used an adhesive and then did hand sewing around the edges). With right sides together I then sewed the two sides together (be sure to pin the ribbons between the two layers at the top before you sew them together). I left a small opening so I could turn the cape inside out. I finished with a stitch around the outside edge. As always if you have any question leave a comment and I'll try and answer them!

I even made one for the new baby to wear when he gets here. For now Teddy is sporting his cape!
