So I had theses two slings that I had bought, one for Eric and one for me, that we never really used. They had a great print and I am trying to re-purpose things. I seam ripped it and used only a portion of it to make a crayon roll-up and marker roll-up. Now the original fabric had seems already so I did not want to hassle with re-doing those so it is a little longer than the pattern calls for. I just made extra pockets. For Kira's I used a ribbon and button to close it up. Enzo can not do buttons so I used elastic to close his up. I did not take more than two hours in total between distractions and all. Fun and easy and re-purposing. So my camera is working but the dial up on my computer is taking forever to download the picture. Sorry, yet another craft without a pic. I will try to go to the library this week and use their wifi.

Skip to My Lou is having a super giveaway. An ALEX sewing machine for kids and a sewing kit. I have been teaching Kira how to sew using yarn and those plastic cut out shapes, like a star. She has been using a plastic needle and loving going down the rows and doing it right. Well I have wanted to get her a sewing machine because she constantly asks if she can help when I sew and she wants to know how it works. Here is my chance and yours to try to win a sewing machine or sewing kit from ALEX toys. Go to Skip to My Lou and either leave a comment, add her on Facebook, add ALEX toys on Facebook, add either of them on Twitter for entries. I hope you enter but I hope I win....haha! I really never win anything so I am hoping this is the one!
Good Luck All!
