Crafting Bucket List

I recently watched "The Bucket List" and began to think about all the things I wanted to do or try before dying.  For now I would like to share a few of the items on my crafting bucket list.  After moving I will try my best to update and achieve these things!

  • Make a suitcase chair
  • Finish Drake's playhouse
  • Learn 3 different weaving styles for headbands
  • Knit something other than a scarf
  • Crochet something other than a coaster
  • Make a dress out of ties
  • Letter associated "I Spy" bags
  • Peek-a-boo blankie
  • Butterfly Rag Quilt
  • Owl Rag Quilt

Drake's Playhouse...Part 1

I saw this amazing play house over at homemade By Jill when I was pregnant and thought she did an amazing job!  One day after noticing my little man being brave and going into dark rooms and tunnels by himself (just a pop up tunnel ;) ) I decided he would love a playhouse!

Could I remember the amazing blog I had seen almost a year previously? Yah right, ask my family I'm lucky to remember my name let alone other important things.  So I had to search and search, finally I found her blog and studied her work.

A lovely trip to Hobby Lobby and at least 5 yards and 2 packages of 8 1/2 X 11" felt I came home and got to work!

I didn't take pictures of "in the process" but I do have a semi finished play house!

Welcome! Here we have the front of his house the mail slot being in the door, we have a "Name" rock in front of his house and the window!

Man's best friend's house! Our dog actually crawls through the door!

His flower box and tree

Here we have the rest of the tree and a vegtable garden!

The house is being finished slowly but surely, I hope to have it done before September, when I finish I will upload pictures!

If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask!
