Monday Made It

Happy Monday Made It to you!  This week's MMI proves that I spend way too much time on the computer.

MMI #1 Shutterfly Pillow
Did you know Shutterfly has pillows now?  To be honest, setting a plate of pizza on my kids' faces seems a little weird, but I had other ideas for this new service.

I whipped up an image in Photoshop, and uploaded it to Shutterfly.  About a week later, this little beauty arrived:

So cool, right?  I'm kind of obsessed with anything personalized, so it makes me happy whenever I see it on my couch.

MMI#2 Canvas
I wanted something balance out the shelves over my craft table.

I knew I wanted something on canvas because that wall is pretty busy already.  Canvases aren't cheap, so I scoured the Internet.  I ordered from Canvas Print Factory.  The next morning, I realized I shouldn't have ordered 6 canvases from a company I had used before.  These types of logical decisions don't really happen at 1:00 a.m.  Thankfully, I am super happy with the quality.  The price was right, the shipping was free, and they turned out cute.

My last home made it is something my older daughter and I worked on together.  She's growing up, sniff, sniff, and getting more into clothes and accessories.

Sadly, I didn't take any pictures while we worked on it.  Basically:
1.  Cut a long rectangle.  Hint: Measure a scarf you like.  Double the width and length (if it's an infinity scarf), plus a little extra.
2.  Fold wrong sides together the hot dog way.  Iron.  Sew the long side.
3.  Fold a 1 inch cuff, iron, then turn inside out.
4.  Tuck the non cuffed side into the cuff.  Sew.
5.  Boom.  You've got an infinity scarf.

Now for the school Made Its.  I made a couple of new things for my TPT store.  I'm super excited about this set:

They turned out so stinking cute.  Here's a close up:
I also made some new things for my Retro Brights series.

Now, hop on over to 4th Grade Frolics, so you can see what everyone has been getting crafty with!
