Last week was the week of birthdays. Natey was first and then 3 of his little buddies also turned 3 in the same week! The first party was for Luca. Her mom and I met in prenatal yoga when we were pregnant with our now 3 year olds. When you have 3 birthdays to go to in 3 days it's hard to come up with gift ideas that are fun, unique and won't break the bank. If I have the time and inspiration, I love to make handmade gifts for people. I saw a tutorial for these awesome beanbag numbers and thought I'd give them a whirl. I wanted to involve Natey so I let him pick the fabrics!
Aren't they fun? I'm going to make some for Nate now because he liked them so much!
Luca's family is into music. Both of her parents play instruments and she is learning the guitar. So what is more appropriate than showing that girls rock!
I hope she liked the gifts as much as I enjoyed making them! Stay tuned for the other handmade goodies I came up with for the boy's birthday gifts!
I'm a crafter stuck in a scientist's body. I cook, sew, make pretty things, do crazy things like run half marathons, work full time, sleep when I can, and clean only when I have to. I can often be seen trying to shove 10 pounds of stuff into a 5 pound bag!
