making : fabric + zippers + paper + wood… oh my!

There’s been lots of making in preparation of our trip this summer.  It’s funny, because I don’t really think we need anything made for it, but it is a such a great reason to search and do make something special for this special occasion.  Such has been the case of the family passport wallet and the pencil case.

So, why stop at two pencil cases, right?  Here I have two more just made.  One of these is mine though.

I’m practicing to put zippers, and I love it!  I can’t believe they are not that hard after all!


They are so much fun to make.  And well, I figured since I learned to sew on zippers, I can make anything.  And I feel like I can!

This card was made by Lucas for a friend on his birthday.  Do you want to guess how old he was turning?

Siena made this card with a peacock she drew and then added tiny glass beads.



Lucas made this present for Siena for her birthday.  He’s been thinking for many months how to do it, and this is what he came up.
