Iron Craft #46- Homemade Holiday

Wow, hard to believe it is week #46 on Iron Craft and also that we are talking about the holidays. I feel like I am stuck in September- however the cold weather is telling me something else. This challenge came at the perfect time as I have a way too long list of things I hope to make for Christmas.

 This week I am making a present for my husband, who I hope does not read this. He loves photography but is always misplacing the lens cap and when I saw this lens cap holder I knew it would make a perfect stocking stuffer for him . The project came together really quickly which is good since I had to hide making it from him. I hope he likes it.


 Now off to make the Things their annual Christmas pajamas.

Iron Craft #44 Rest Your Head

I feel like it is getting harder and harder to get something done for Iron Craft lately. This week my focus was on making Halloween costumes for Thing 2 and his best buddy. They had decided they wanted to be Mario and Luigi. Nothing against those who buy store costumes but I have a hard time not trying to create the costumes each year so I tackled this years costume head on. Here is what I came up with....

Now on to Iron Craft. This week we were challenged to make a pillow or something around that theme. Having made at least 3 pillows for earlier challenges I decided to head in a little different direction. We love to camp each summer. Part of our camping supplies are a stack of small pillows that we use instead of bed pillows. Iron Craft #44
The only problem with these pillows is that the covers don't come off and since they are used for camping they tend to get dirty. In the past I had made removable covers for the boys' pillows but needed something for myself. I used some fabric from my stash and whipped up a couple covers for my pillows. I still have to finish new ones for everyone else but this was a start.
