Hey! It’s been awhile hasn’t it? I honestly do have a good reason for not being around lately, and he’s one handsome devil.
Meet Mr. Isaac. He joined the family one month ago on May 28th weighing in at 8 lb 12 oz and 22 inches long. He made a pretty dramatic entrance in 2 hours from first contraction to birth. It was quite the experience :). He is amazing, but sure loves to be held and cuddled. I’m definitely not complaining, though it does make it hard to get anything done around here :).
One lucky morning I finally got him to stay asleep in his swing for a nap (hallelujah!) so I seized the moment and made a little wall hanging I have had in mind for the kids room for awhile now.
I know that I normally make a tutorial of things like this, but I was on such a crafting high I totally spaced taking pictures while in process. I thought that I might make another and take pictures of that one, but I haven’t had the chance to craft again and I really wanted to share. I’ll just try to explain it as best I can.
Thread or embroidery floss
Sun & Clouds Die (from Lifestyle Crafts)
Hot Glue and Gun
1 – Cut out 2 suns from the felt sheet.
2 – Glue the top of the sun (along the sun rays) along the edges.
3 – Stuff the main part of the sun with batting and hot glue the bottom shut.
4 – Thread a needle with the thread and tie a knot at the end. Sew through the felt balls and position them along the thread. There is no need to tie them or knot them at their location on the thread; they should stay in place.
5 – Sew the string of balls onto the bottom of the sun and repeat.
6 – Finally, add some string to the top for a hanger.
And you’re done!
It really is so easy. I hope that the steps were easy to understand and complete.
