crafty when I wanna be....




So.... I got this idea to make this rug for the baby room while me and my mom were at JoAnns... Turns out I LOVE how it turned out! It's pretty big too! Then I still had lots of extra so I figured I'd keep experimenting... and tried making a monkey head pillow! It's pretty big too... It still needs to get the lumps worked out so it's a bit rounder... but for doing it from scratch and now pattern I think they both turned out pretty cute! And even better... both of em only cost like... 15 bucks total! (I'm a cheapskate... so I like when I save money... what of it?!) Course when you factor in all the time it took to make it I guess it aint so cheap... but it was fun ;) In case you couldn't tell we are going for a jungle! ;) Next up... I wanna try n make a Lion pillow!

Oh my gosh, Steph! Super cute! Is that monkey a pillow?? Did you have a pattern for that or just make it up yourself? Very impressive either way!!

yeah it's a pillow ;) It's about 2 1/2 ft wide! No pattern though... I just kinda winged it... I wanna do it over and do the ears different! But I also want to make a lion one so we'll see!
