Quiet Book/Toys for Kids

I love the these tutorials for making toys for kids. One day I hope to make them:

Kitchen with felt food
Felt Playhouse
Car playmat

I have started making a quiet book and need to continue making it. The whole reason behind a quiet book for me is to give my kids something to play with while in church so that they aren't disruptive, and also so that they can learn. I've come up with a few myself by printing off outlines of the alphabet and numbers to use as a pattern. Here are a few blogs that have patterns and tutorials I found helpful and fun ideas:

Diaper Clutch

Love this diaper clutch and finally purchased one for myself!

Refashioning and Skirts!

I have a friend at church that sews and she makes the cutest skirts and shirts. I've decided that I want to make a cute skirt and have started making it. I still have to shirr the top and add a hem to the bottom of it.

I also wanted to learn how to make shirts but for now I have been satisfied with refashioning shirts. The blogosphere is full of creative people and that's where I get some of my ideas!

Ruffle Shirt Refashions
- She has a few other refashions on her web page that are easy to find once you click the link. I have purchased $5 t-shirts from Old Navy and clearance shirts to do my refashions, cheap and cute!

Materinty Shirt Refashion
- Does't have to be for a maternity shirt
