DIY: Cloud t-shirt

You might have noticed that I am in love with clouds when it comes to kids' stuff. So here is another quick t-shirt upcycling idea. I just cut a cloud out of an old t-shirt and sew it onto a new one. I simply used straight stitches for that. It's made within no time and looks great!

Happy Birthday Ragna!

Our little bunny turned three last week. She is a big fan of the little white rabbit 'Miffy'. So we had a Miffy party at our place on Saturday. But somehow we forgot to take photos of the deco. So I can only show you the Miffy birthday cake.
We also have started a birthday tradition. We take a pretty photo of the birthday child and then we add the name, the age and what they love at that particular age. So later on that will be a cute memory of those years.

DIY: Cloud cushion

I am in love with clouds for kid's stuff. Whether it's cushions or shirt deco I can't resist. So I had to make one for Ragna's room. I used a simple towel from IKEA to make this one. It's pretty easy. Just cut two pieces in cloud shape, sew them together leaving a small gap open. Turn it inside out, fill it and then close the seam and do a contrast zig zag stitching all around the cushion. I used yellow thread for it. But the options are of course endless...

DIY: Cardboard doll house

This simple doll house is made of two pieces of A4 size thick cardboard. I simply cut off the corners for the roof and then added a slit as wide as the cardboard is thick (approx 2-3 mm) and as long as half  of the entire height. The first slit goes from roof to the middle on the first cardboard piece. The second slit goes from the bottom to the middle of the second cardboard piece. Decorate the pieces with wallpaper or wrapping paper, stickers, paint whatever you like... Then you only need to put the two pieces together in a 90 degree angle. Make sure that the slit is not too wide because then the two pieces won't stay in place properly. We use our new little house together with the LEGO DUPLO blocks but the options are endless: doll house, circus, garage, zoo, barn yard, coffee shop...
