zombie crafts

I am nothing if not a total copy cat.
{ssshhhhhhh!!!!}
I long time ago I bought a shirt for one of the kids that
said..
"i heart zombies"
well..
it was super cute.. kinda pricey..
(but made by a SAHM so I bought it)
Now that it has been grown out of...
(still remains a hand me down for fionie)
I decided to just make a new one.
Finally figured out how the freezer paper stencils work..
(TOTALLY COOL!!)
it was a little bit tedious to cut out the letter.s...
did not have an exacto knife as recommended..
I used a leatherman supertool! Quite brave on my
part.. I have gotten more than my fair share of
bloody wounds from using a leatherman.
But... a bloody wound.. an I heart zombies tee..
kinda works I think.
Ok so no blood.
a cool shirt though!
AND I used some fabric paint that turned velveteen when
steamed with the iron..
it was rad!
SSSSTTTEEEAAAAMMMMM!!!
and
POOF!
velvety letters..
wow.. I don't pretend to even know how it works. its just neato!

more skirts.. and a few aprons...

not much to say today.
starting a 6 week countdown
here are some pictures of what I completed this week









"it's a pillow.. it's a pet.. it's a pillow BUDDY!"

I don't know if you've all heard this little jingle as many times as I have...
it's catchy (kinda) and gets stuck in my head..
especially when little Lola sings it and will not stop asking for one.
... after seeing the commercials I know that I would like to
make her one but I am not good with 'on the fly' 'off the cuff' type things..
I need a pattern to insure not having to re-do a million times...
since the little peachs b-day is fast approaching I decided it was time
to figure this pillow person out..
so....
THANK YOU SO MUCH to Elizabeth @ Twelve Crafts!!!
I thought at the very best I would have to piece together tutorials on doll heads and pillow cases! She way outdid herself here and unknowingly answered my pillow(pet) buddy prayers :)

I really need to say THANKS!
and re-post this here just incase anyone else
out there wants to make one too.


click on the photo to find the tutorial ... check out the rest of her blog too..
She's cool :)
