Little Red Riding Hood Cape and Basket

*Project by Christy @ Inklings & Yarns for the Red challenge of Season 14* Who doesn't love dress up clothes? Nobody, that's who. My Little Red isn't even old enough to understand what dress up is and she still loves this cape and basket I made her. The cape is made from red stretch velvet and a little satin ribbon. I used one of her many hoodies as a template for the top, measured her from the shoulders to the floor, and just … [Continue reading...]

Valentine’s Outfit

*Project by Camille @ Sugar Baby Boutique for the Red challenge of season 14* The first thing I thought of for "Red" was "VALENTINE's OUTFITS!!" So excited. I've been wanting to make some cute love day outfits and this was my shot. I pulled out my cute striped jersey and made a little pattern for some cardigans. I thought it would be cute to add some fun heart patches on the elbows. Originally I was going to use some plain red jersey, but, I … [Continue reading...]

Charming Red Necklace

*Project by Catherine @ CathGrace for the Red challenge of season 14* For my red project I was originally fairly stumped, you see, I'm not really a red person.

After thinking and thinking about it for a bit, I came up with a project that I not only love, and think I will get a lot of use out of, but it also makes me rethink my opinion on RED! For my project, I … [Continue reading...]

Wild Things Bowl

*Project  by Deidre @ A Craft A Day for the Children's Literature challenge of season 10* It is inevitable, if you have children, that you have wonderful books that have torn or missing pages.  They are no longer useful for their original intent.  Those books often make their way to the garbage.  Instead of throwing it away, here is a great way to make use of that wonderful book. Made from the book Where the Wild Things Are, this paper bowl … [Continue reading...]

Courious George Shower

*Project  by Kirstin @ KoJo Designs for the Children's Literature challenge of season 10* My husband often says that our kids have more books than anyone he knows. Between the stash I'd collected from my years teaching and the fact that children's books seem to be the one purchase I cannot refuse, we have bookcases teeming with Kevin Henkes and Robert Munsch and Patricia Polacco and Mem Fox. Narrowing to a project for this week's theme, … [Continue reading...]

Roald Dahl Table and Stools

*Project by Jessica @ Running with Scissors for the Children's Literature challenge of season 10* My favorite children's author is Roald Dahl,  the World's Most Scrumiddlyumptious Storyteller. He wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, The Witches, and more. Most of his books were illustrated by Quentin Blake, who uses a sloppy sketch style of illustrations. I was a nerdy little kid that loved books and … [Continue reading...]
