10. Planes, Trains and Automobiles Play Mat Quilt
This little play mat/quilt was made for my friends Clint and Angela’s boys. Clint was battling testicular cancer when we came up with this idea. This post was the hardest one I’ve ever tried to publish, because I didn’t like talking about even the possibility that he might die. I miss you, Clint.

Velcro. It’s AMAZING.
Whovians want their fabrics! I’ll be showing you a TARDIS messenger bag soon, I hope, but here’s a little zipper pouch I made with some of the other fabric. These are large enough to hold a phone and an iTouch, and I made a little stack of them for my kids and their friends at the start of the school year.

I made three of these bags this year. I got to keep this one!
When I was fairly new to sewing, I was upset that I couldn’t find a sunglasses case tutorial. So I made my own.
Easy monogram pillows!
This is a really easy to do with or for kids. Grate Ivory soap, mix in a bit of water and form into “snowballs”. They’re even better if you hide a little toy inside!
Bags made from the Summer 2011 issue of Stitch magazine, designed by Ayumi Takahashi. This one was for my best friend Kim, and in the post you can see the one I made for my Mom, too. I love these bags!
I still adore this headboard and am so glad for the time I invested in it! (But it did take AGES to hand paint on these textured walls!)
There are many, many more than 52 reasons why I love him, but I was happy to share of few of them!
Thank you for bothering to read my little craft blog, and Happy New Year!
