Practical Crafts: In Process

This week instead of making small projects that take a few hours, we’ve been working on a number of larger projects that take more time and patience. While they aren’t ready for the grand unveiling yet, I would like to share the inspiration for what we’re cooking up.

Liliana’s Room

My daughter will be starting Kindergarten in the fall and we have agreed to let her transition her room from the nursery decor to a big girl room. She’s been having a blast putting together projects from fabrics, recyclables, and other materials we’ve come across. These are a few of the things we’ve been tackling.

T-Shirt Rag Rug

This is inspired by one of my favorite Etsy Shops, One Great Thing, and the beautiful rag rug Cassi made. Sadly her rugs aren’t in my price range, but we have a ton of shirts and patience. Following these directions from Molly Kay Stoltz we are about halfway done with a fun and functional rug for Liliana’s room.

Bottle Cap Window Curtain

If you meet Liliana and are drinking something with a plastic bottle cap, she will try to steal your bottle cap for this window project.

Flower Canopy

Liliana loves the princess look of this flower canopy; I don’t like the price tag. We’re making one using lace, a basket, and paperclips.

In addition to these things, we’re busy making decorations for Alex’s 2nd birthday party. Check back next Thursday for directions and pictures on garlands, vegan cupcakes, and rocket favors.
