Pinterest Try Tuesday- Balloon Balls

I’m starting a new thing! Pinterest Try Tuesday! You might have already figured it out…. My goal is to try a new ‘pin’ each week. I don’t know about you, but I ‘pin’ a lot of things. Then I never look at most of them again. Wellll…. I pinned them for a reason, and typically that reason is that I want to try to make it.

PinTry-BalloonBalls-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

So I’m going through my ‘pins’ and picking one to try each week. Then on Tuesday, I’ll let you know how they turn out! I thought for the summer that I’d start with ‘pins’ for the kiddos! And we decided to start with these cool balloon balls! The link associated with the pin is now gone….

PinTry-BalloonBalls-Balls1-ImFeelinCrafty

You can google sensory balls for other people’s how to’s, but I went on memory.

PinTry-BalloonBalls-Materials-ImFeelinCrafty

We decided to try it with both playdoh as a filler and rice as a filler! To give it a try you’ll need either/or rice and play dough, balloons (two different sizes is key), and a funnel.

PinTry-BalloonBalls-Doh1-ImFeelinCrafty

First, the play dough ones! For these I cut the balloons first!

PinTry-BalloonBalls-Doh2-ImFeelinCrafty

Then load them with play dough. I’d recommend dollar store play dough, instead of the more expensive ‘real’ stuff. Or you can make it yourself! Then stuff the stuffed balloon into another empty balloon. You can keep adding more balloons if you’d like!

PinTry-BalloonBalls-Rice1-ImFeelinCrafty

And for the rice ones… These take more patience! Put the balloon around the funnel. Getting the rice through the funnel can be frustrating! It does pour in as quickly as we thought it would. I almost lost my helper during this step! You just have to take it slow and pour small amounts of rice at once!

PinTry-BalloonBalls-Rice3-ImFeelinCrafty

Then tie it off and trim the end. And again, now you stuff the full one into an empty one.

PinTry-BalloonBalls-Balloons-ImFeelinCrafty

KEY! The key for the balloons, at least for us, was to have two sizes of balloons. Fill the larger one and then wrap it with the smaller one to get the really cool looking tight fit.

RESULTS:

PinTry-BalloonBalls-Results-ImFeelinCrafty

The results make for one happy kiddo! And if your kiddo juggles, I bet they would be even happier with these! We’ve had fun with them! If you are looking for a bouncy ball, this is not it!

PinTry-BalloonBalls-Results-Rice-ImFeelinCrafty

The rice one…. It doesn’t squeeze down quite as much. It’s lighter than the play dough one. It keeps it’s round shape better than the play dough version. He likes it.

PinTry-BalloonBalls-Results-Doh1-ImFeelinCrafty

The play dough version… Despite his expression, this is his favorite! It makes for a really cool squeeze! More like the stress balls that you can find in stores.

PinTry-BalloonBalls-Results-Doh2-ImFeelinCrafty

But, it doesn’t keep the round shape. You have to work it back into a round ball….

All in all, I’m glad we finally made these!

Who needs Super Man when there’s Tiger Man???

We have great friends that moved across the world, but they come back to visit every now and then! And last month they came home and we all got to celebrate their kiddos birthday together!

TigerMan-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

I got to make a Party Animal Birthday Party theme for him, which I’ll show off soon! But his parents also asked if I could make him a Tiger Man costume! Of course I can!

TigerMan-serious-ImFeelinCrafty

Wait…. Who’s Tiger Man?

TigerMan-Cape-ImFeelinCrafty

Tiger Man is a made up super hero, made up by my friend and his son! Ok, sure I can do it, but what does he look like? They didn’t know. They tell stories about Tiger Man, but he’s never been seen before!

TigerMan-Mask-ImFeelinCrafty

I used the same basic mask design that I used for the arctic fox and the fox. I obviously changed the colors. And of course, I had to add some tiger stripes. Since he is Tiger Man, of course!

TigerMan-Jump-ImFeelinCrafty

TigerMan-Cuffs-ImFeelinCrafty

I decided Tiger Man totally needed some super hero cuffs. And I’m glad I did, I heard that the real Tiger Man (my son was just modeling) uses the cuffs for all his adventures and they’ve become a very integral part of Tiger Man!

TigerMan-OuttaHere-ImFeelinCrafty

And before he runs off to protect us, Tiger Man’s cape includes tiger stripes and the special letter T!

Have you and your family made up special super heroes?

 

A Walk Down Memory Lane!

This weekend was totally sunny and felt like summer here in Seattle. The rain has come back, but in the meantime I was reminiscing about some of the fun summer projects the kiddo and I have done together! I thought I’d re-share some of my favorites that I want to do again this summer!

the water blob- I'm Feelin' Crafty

I really can’t believe we haven’t made another water blob! It was so much fun! Totally on the list for this summer!

ice cube paints- I'm Feelin' Crafty

We made the ice paint at the same time as the blob! I’d love to see what kind of paintings the kiddo would come up with this time!

GlueShirts-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

 

OK, I think might be one of my most favorite projects! The glue shirts were super cool! We’re so doing this again this summer!

TdayTurkey-Turkeys-Last-ImFeelinCrafty

Yes, this is a little fall like, but we love the salad spinner art. I think it would be fun to come up with a whole zoo of salad spinner animals. I wonder what other animals this would work with? What about a parrot? Or a peacock? hmmmm….What else???

Melted Bead Sun Catchers-I'm Feelin' Crafty- Windchime

And lastly, the melted bead projects. A great summer project, since I use my stove I need to open the house and send the kid outside while they melt. It’s a pretty popular post on the ‘ole blog, too. If you want to do it, read all the comments too, there’s a lot of questions answered and tips from other readers!

What projects do you have on the list for the summer?

Pikachu!

I’m not much up on the whole Pokemon thing. The kiddo isn’t into that whole thing yet. But…

Pikachu-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

One of his buddies up the street is! And she just had a Pokemon birthday party. So of course I needed a birthday present. I know our friend loves stuffies. I know she loves Pokemon and her favorite character is Pikachu. And I’ve been following along with ikat bag‘s Menagerie Stuffie Pattern.

Menagerie Pattern

Have you seen it? I was waiting everyday to see what she would come up with next! Using the same basic pattern she came up with a frog, a dragon, a shark, and my favorite, the squid! And many more! 17 actually. Fantastic! It’s so cool. The pattern is not out yet, but she did participate in Sew Mama Sew’s 6 Weeks of Love for Softies and gave us a sneak peek at the pattern with the Raccoon Pattern.

Pikachu-Smile-ImFeelinCrafty

So I jumped! Stuffie + Pikachu + Menagerie Raccoon Pattern = AWESOME Birthday Present! The pattern was perfect for my project! It’s so simple!

Pikachu-Materials-ImFeelinCrafty

I got to use two new materials that I have never used before! The plastic eyes and the stuffing beads. I ordered the beads not long ago to use in the lap desk, but the bag ended up being tiny. These are like little beads of plastic, not the tiny polyfill microbeads that fly around. I was going ot return them, but it cost more ot return them so I figured I’d use them sooner or later. Yep!! Good call!

Pikachu-Face-ImFeelinCrafty

The obvious changes from the raccoon are the ears and the tail. I did add heavy interfacing in the ears to help them stay straight. I also deleted the nose and instead hand embroidered it.

I debated adding the open pink mouth.  After I started all the pieces, I was sewing on the cheeks and was about to sew on the open mouth when I saw this picture. Totally inspired the closed mouth. So sweet looking!

Pikachu-Back-ImFeelinCrafty

Pikachu-BackDtl-ImFeelinCrafty

And I moved the stripes from the tail to the back! For the cheeks and the back I used high quality wool felt, instead of a fleece. But for the tail I did use a little bit of brown fleece. It was much easier to pull through the tail than the felt would have been. I think if I made it again, I would add one piece across the back instead of 4 little pieces. You can download the pieces I added here. There are no seam allowances included in my pieces.

Pikachu-Last-ImFeelinCrafty

I think it turned out freakin’ adorable! I’m in love with it! And I know the birthday girl was pretty happy with him too! There are such cute critters in the whole Pokemon thing, that  I almost want to try to make a whole series of them! What would you make with her pattern?

No Sew Lap Desk Tutorial with a Speed Sew Giveaway!

When we go most places the kiddo leaves with a handful of legos…. Then he drops the legos in the car…

NoSewLapDesk-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

So I wanted to make him a lap desk to hold those legos so they don’t end up all over the car! And that’s what we did!

NoSewLapDesk-Playing3-ImFeelinCrafty

I kept looking for a fun lap desk with sides, but I couldn’t find any since they are mostly made for laptops. Then I was wandering through Goodwill one day and noticed a tray! Oh, yeah! It hit me, I can make it myself. Hello? WHy hadn’t I thought of this before???

NoSewLapDesk-Materials-ImFeelinCrafty

Want to make one? It’s super easy! Of course, I got the tray at our local Goodwill. You’ll also need poly fill microbeads, cardboard or foam core, fabric, speed sew, hot glue and some trace paper.

NoSewLapDesk-Step1-ImFeelinCrafty

First, you’ll want to trace the outline of your tray and then cut it out of your cardboard or foam core. I used the foam core just becuase it’s what I had closest to me!

NoSewLapDesk-Step2-ImFeelinCrafty

Cut your fabric. I cut mine about 3 1/2 inches larger than my foam core on each side. In hindsight, I’d probably go a bit thinner, maybe 2 1/2 inches.

NoSewLapDesk-Step3-ImFeelinCrafty

NoSewLapDesk-Step3a-ImFeelinCrafty

Next, pull up the corners so that you have a triangle of fabric like in the picture above. Pin along the long side of the triangle. Do it for each corner.

NoSewLapDesk-SpeedSew-ImFeelinCrafty

And in comes Speed Sew! Have you used this stuff? It’s little blurb is, Don’t sew it, Speed Sew it!’ You put this glue on the fabric, hold it for a minute and it’s like it’s been sewn together! I love it! I’m trying to figure out how to make a no sew quilt for those readers out there that want to make a quilt but don’t sew! Not sure if I’ll be able to do it, but I’m working on it!

NoSewLapDesk-Step4a-ImFeelinCrafty

NoSewLapDesk-Step4-ImFeelinCrafty

Unpin your triangles and glue along the line between the two right sides. Put the glue on a piece of paper or cardboard and use some sort of spreader to apply the glue. I didn’t have great luck with getting the glue where I wanted it when I applied directly to the fabric. Other people might be better at this than I am, but until you know, stick with a spreader!

Don’t cut the rest of the triangles!

NoSewLapDesk-Step5-ImFeelinCrafty

NoSewLapDesk-Step5a-ImFeelinCrafty

NoSewLapDesk-Step5b-ImFeelinCrafty

Center the cardboard back in the middle of the fabric. We’re gluing the fabric to the cardboard. Start with the corners and gather around. Then do 3 sides. Not all four! Just three! Then go around and make sure you have a nice border of hot glue all around.

NoSewLapDesk-Step6-ImFeelinCrafty

Use a funnel to fill the lap desk with the micro-beads. This can get messy! They kinda fly around…. So SLOWLY fill the funnel. I tried to speed it up and pour directly into the lap desk. But it made a mess! So I recommend the funnel!

NoSewLapDesk-Step7-ImFeelinCrafty

Once the lap desk is filled, hot glue that side closed too! Then push on the lap desk and if you have any holes, micr-beads will start flying! Fill in the gaps if needed!

NoSewLapDesk-Step8-ImFeelinCrafty

Lastly, hot glue the lap desk to the tray! i had to work fast, before the hot glue dried!

NoSewLapDesk-Playing2-ImFeelinCrafty

NoSewLapDesk-Playing1-ImFeelinCrafty

Then give it a test drive! The kiddo was very pleased with it and it ready to take it out on the open road!

NoSewLapDesk-Last-ImFeelinCrafty

What do you think? Would your kiddos like one? I bet they would!! I want one for when I’m crafting in the car on road trips! hmmmm… I might have to make another one!

NoSewLapDesk-SpeedSew-ImFeelinCrafty

And now for the giveaway! 2 tubes of Speed Sew! It dries in minutes, doesn’t wash out and can be used for crafts and fabric repairs. I bet it would be a great way to hem things if you don’t want to sew it! I just thought about that!

The 5 Minute Quiver Tutorial- No Sew, Even!

Soooo… Do you have kids? Do they ask you to make them all sorts of things? Mine does. The other day he started making arrows out of straws so that he can shoot them in the house. But if you have a bunch of arrows, you need something to carry them in. Right?

Quiver-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

So a quiver it is! OK, yes, I had to google it. We kept calling it an arrow holder, but I knew it had a name. A quiver is an arrow holder!

Quiver-Main2-ImFeelinCrafty

Honestly, I put him off for a little while. I wasn’t exactly sure how to do it….

Quiver-Strap-ImFeelinCrafty

Then I was looking for something and found this strap I salvaged from a bag headed to Goodwill. I knew it would come in handy for something! Boy was I right!

Quiver-Top-ImFeelinCrafty

As soon as I found the strap, I knew exactly how to make a quiver! Easy Peasy!

Quiver-Strap-ImFeelinCrafty

I used black felt, a little bit of ribbon, hot glue and scissors. If you don’t have a strap, you could also use a long piece of ribbon or webbing instead of the little pieces of ribbon and the strap.

Quiver-StepOne-ImFeelinCrafty

First cut out your pieces.

Quiver-StepTwo-ImFeelinCrafty

Then glue the little pieces of ribbon to the one of the long sides. (or your long piece of ribbon.)

Quiver-StepThree-ImFeelinCrafty

Then hot glue along the long edge.

Quiver-StepFour-ImFeelinCrafty

And hot glue along the bottom.

Quiver-StepFive-ImFeelinCrafty

And yep, add the strap and you’re done! Seriously, 5 minutes.

Quiver-End-ImFeelinCrafty

So next time your adorable little kid asks for a quiver (or the more kid friendly term, an arrow holder.) you can say, ‘YOU BET.’  And if you whip it up right away, the kiddo will think you are a super hero!

Quiver-Last-ImFeelinCrafty

Mine was pretty excited!

 

Ice Castle Kit In a Bag!

Calling all Frozen fans!! Or should I say, calling everyone giving a Frozen fan a gift this year!!

IceCastleKit-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

My son was invited to a Frozen birthday party last week and I was debating what to give. I wanted it Frozen themed, but I didn’t want it to be too ‘Frozeny’…. If you know what I mean!

IceCastleKit-Label-ImFeelinCrafty

Then I figured it out! Years ago I saw the DIY Fort Kit by Saltwater Kids. For real. I’ve wanted to make a DIY Fort Kit for YEARS! But I changed it up a bit and made it Frozen themed….

IceCastleKit-Main2-ImFeelinCrafty

IceCastleKit-Contents-ImFeelinCrafty

IceCastleKit-Fabrics-ImFeelinCrafty

Most of the supplies came from the dollar store. We stocked it with clothespins, clips, suction cups, rope, double stick tape and fabric. And of course, you can’t have an ice castle without snowflakes! Now, here comes the expensive part… The fabric. The fort kit uses sheets. For this one, I wanted more of a see thru icy feel so I bought sheer fabrics. 7 yards of fabric that is! I used 4 yards of the iridescent fabric and 3 yards of the sheer. Then we did throw in a white sheet.

IceCastleKit-Hooks-ImFeelinCrafty

I also used ribbon for the ‘hooks’. I cut 6″ pieces of the ribbon, folded it over and sewed it on to the fabric pieces. I put a hook on each corner, one in the very center and one on each center of the long side… Does that make sense? But then on the white, I added a couple more hooks where I thought I’d need them. There’s no real rule here!

IceCastleKit-InTheBag-ImFeelinCrafty

And I made the bag too… I kept putting off the bag because I couldn’t find the right fabric for it. One night I was going to stop by the fabric store and my son didn’t want to. I wish I could remember what he said, but whatever it was, it totally inspired me to make my own!

IceCastleKit-StampSupplies-ImFeelinCrafty

IceCastleKit-Stamp-ImFeelinCrafty

I just happened to have bought these foam snowflakes about 3 years ago and never used them. Perfect! And then I just happened to have a block of wood the right size. I just used some double stick tape and stuck the foam flake on there, painted it and stamped it! Easy!

IceCastleKit-Castle-ImFeelinCrafty

Of course I had to try it out before I wrapped it! AWESOME! It made putting a fort together so simple. You have all your pieces right there. The hooks make it simple to rig it up to your furniture and doors and windows! My son really wants one, but he did request one, ‘that’s not a Frozen theme.’

IceCastleKit-Label2-ImFeelinCrafty

What do you think? Are you off to the dollar store for supplies right now!!?? You can print the label here!

Would you add anything else? Let me know!

Lion Mask Tutorial with My Own Fringemaker

There are all sorts of projects to do with the My Own Fringemaker, but in the spirit of Halloween I’m thinking of costumes! Like maybe a Lion costume…..

LionMask-Mask1-ImFeelinCrafty

 

I was going to make a lion stuffie. Maybe I still will, because our neighbors are having a baby any day now! Anyway, I’ll keep you posted on that! I’ve been wanting to do something lion since I found out about the My Own Fringemaker! Register to win a Fringemaker here!

LionMask-Masks-ImFeelinCrafty

And if you’ve been around here for long, you know I like masks! Especially masks! We’ve done the Mr. Fox and the Arctic Fox and now it’s the Lion. Ready to make your own?

LionMask-Step1-ImFeelinCrafty

You’ll need a fringemaker (register to win here, or buy it here), yarn, felt, 14,5″ elastic, the pattern, pipe cleaners, and cutting materials. For the felt I used four colors, cream, orange, yellow and a brownish yellow.

LionMask-Step2-ImFeelinCrafty

Cut out all your pieces.

LionMask-Step3-ImFeelinCrafty

 

Sew the elastic to the back piece of the mask.

LionMask-Step4-ImFeelinCrafty

LionMask-Step4b-ImFeelinCrafty

LionMask-Step4c-ImFeelinCrafty

LionMask-Step4d-ImFeelinCrafty

Make the mane! Start by tying off the yarn on the Fringmaker in a knot. Wind the yarn around and around and around! With this one I used 2 kinds of yarn, you don’t have to. Then sew down the middle. I just sewed down once since I knew the yarn would be sewn in the mask. And lastly, Remove the mane from the Fringemaker!

LionMask-Step5-ImFeelinCrafty

Position the main on the back mask and pin it in place.

LionMask-Step6-ImFeelinCrafty

Place the front of the mask in place and the chin/cheeks piece and the middle piece on top and sew around the edges. This part isn’t super easy, so go slow so that everything stays aligned.

LionMask-Step7-ImFeelinCrafty

LionMask-Step7a-ImFeelinCrafty

Embellish! Add the inside of the ear and the nose. These pieces could be glued on, but I sewed mine on. And sew down the chin and the middle pieces. Then add the wiskers. Cut a little slit in the cheeks, insert the whiskers and then sew down on top of the whiskers.

LionMask-Step8-ImFeelinCrafty

Cut out the eyes and sew around the edges.

LionMask-Mask3-ImFeelinCrafty

And your done! Find a sweet kid for the mask!

LionMask-Mask2-ImFeelinCrafty

You’ve got a lion! What mask would you make with the My Own Fringemaker?

Uno by Sew Inspired

I can’t believe that the series is already coming to an end!!! How did September fly by? AHHH! Today’s guest is a real life in person friend of mine from our local quilting guild! Vicki blogs over at Sew Inspired and makes amazing pieces. I’m in love with her new moths project! And you’ve got to see her rhino quilt. One day she’s going to teach me how to do free motion quilting beciase she’s a PRO at it! Until then, let’s check out her project!

Welcome Vicki!
Thanks, Louise, for inviting me to participate in Sew Ready to Play! I enjoyed looking through all the past years’ projects while I was brainstorming what I wanted to make. I ended up deciding to make a case for our new Uno cards. My dad bought a few games to play with my kids when he and my mom visited us this summer, and the Uno card box isn’t holding up that well. So I put together an easy fabric card case that can hold our Uno cards without tearing, complete with a pocket on the back to hold the instruction sheet. Here’s how you can make your own.
Materials needed:
1 fat quarter of fabric (do you like my corndog fabric??)
9″ x 18″ of moderately heavy interfacing (I prefer sew-in interfacing, but you can use fusible if you want)
1.5″ of hook and loop fasteners
Thread

card case 1-4
Step 1: Cutting. From the fabric, cut two 7.5″ x 12″ rectangles for the main pouch, and one 5 ¼” x 8 ½” rectangle for the pocket. From interfacing, cut one 7.5″ x 12″ rectangle and one 5 ¼” x 4 1/8″ rectangle.
Step 2: To make the pocket, fold the 5 ¼” x 8 ½” rectangle in half with right sides together, then place the interfacing on top of the folded fabric rectangle. Pin. Using a ¼” seam allowance, sew the three sides of the rectangle, leaving an opening so you can turn the pocket right side out.
Step 3: Trim the corners on the pocket piece.
Step 4: Turn right side out. Poke corners out and press, with the edges of the opening folded in. Edgestitch close to the fold edge of the pocket.
card case 5-8
Step 5: Layer the two large fabric rectangles right sides together and place interfacing on top. Pin and sew ½” from edge, leaving an opening so you can turn it right side out.
Step 6: Trim corners. Trim interfacing to about ¼” wide.
Step 7: Turn right side out, poke out the corners, press. Make sure the edges of the opening are folded in.
Step 8: The opening with edges folded in is at the bottom. Place pocket (hemmed edge on top) on main pouch piece 4″ up from the bottom edge. Pin in place.
card case 9-12
Step 9: Edgestitch pocket in place, about 1/8″ from edge of pocket. Backstitch at both top corners to reinforce the pocket. Make sure your instruction sheet fits in pocket.
Step 10: Pin hook part of hook and loop tape to the main pouch piece, centered and about 1 ¼” up from the bottom edge. Also, sew 1/8″ from bottom edge to close the opening left from turning.
Step 11: Zigzag hook tape in place, backstitch to secure.
Step 12: Fold bottom edge of pouch up 4″ and stitch sides in place. Backstitch at top corners. My seams are about 3/16″ here. Topstitch around edges of the top flap.
card case 13-done
Step 13: Pin the loop part of the hook and loop tape to the top edge of the pouch so it will fasten correctly. Also, make sure the cards fit in the pouch.
Step 14: Zigzag loop tape in place.
All done, congratulations! I’d love to see pictures if you make a card pouch with this tutorial!

Balderdash by Paisley Roots

Today I’m excited to introduce Karly from Paisley Roots. Yep, she was another amazing contestant in Season 8 of Project Run and Play. And yes, she won! She makes some beautiful clothes for her kiddos! They are probably some of the best dressed kiddos around! She also has a pattern line, Paisley Roots Design,  and just issued her second pattern, the All Spice Dress. I’m waiting to see what she comes up with for boy patterns….Hint hint…

Welcome, Karly!

Hey! I’m Karly from Paisly Roots and I’m so excited to be over here talking about my families favorite game. Balderdash.
The game is for people 12 and up so my kids haven’t quite gotten the grasp of it.
If you’ve never played it before I will give you a run down.
There are 5 different categories:
WORDS – what is the definition of this word?
PEOPLE – what is this person known for?
INITIALS – what do they stand for?
MOVIES – what is the basic story line?
LAWS – complete the law!
 
There’s one person that will be in charge each round and that person decides which category they want the round to be. Once the category is chosen the word on the front gets read out and everyone then has to write out some lie that sounds believable and pass it to the person in charge.
They all get mixed up and read and then everyone goes around choosing which they think is the correct one.

We adore this game and have so much fun with it! Unlike Monopoly where fights would constantly ensue, this game just makes us laugh and laugh and is played at every family gathering.

Seriously, the things we come up with…..

So now onto our shirts. I used the Tinley Tee pattern to make both. For Zoe’s I used a purple knit sheet to match the game colors and used Freezer Stenciling with fabric paint. For Aevaries, I wanted to try and show a little on how the game is played. We chose the initials and had fun coming up with acronyms for it. I used a pencil that I dipped in fabric paint to then draw out the words, since there was no way I was going to cut all of them out in a stencil! Aevarie also added a little extra to hers (aka: hearts and smiley face).
It wont take long for these guys to have this game down like pro’s.
Thank you so much Louise for having us along!
