1. Align the fusible interfacing with one side of a 6"x 4" piece and with the 4.5"x 4" piece (this will be the frame) and press with an iron. 2. Mark the back of the frame measuring 1" in, on all sides. Cut out the frame leaving about a 1/2" seam allowance. Cut the corners to the edge of the inner corner and press seams inward. 3. Align the clear vinyl to the wrong side of the frame and pin.

Having done quite a bit of wardrobe purging this spring, I put aside those that were not stained or riddled with holes. My little one needed some new t-shirts for an upcoming vacation, and as always, was put off by what's in store for boys. I decided to make some shirts which would prevent the waste of the old, and reduce the use of new materials. here, on spoonflower.com. So never, never toss out ratty clothes. Make new from the old! Reduce, Reuse, Upcycle! On a side note, clearly I need to do some sewing for myself since I seem to have so many stained and holey clothes!

The Robins in the yard are gone and have been replaced by brilliant white, powdery snow! A perfect day to pull out the wool bean bags! Countless games and pretend play abound. Packaged in a set of three, these softly felted bean bags are soft to the touch and filled with lentils for a lovely weight and feel. Children of all ages will enjoy the colorful bean bags that stimulate creative play.

After a very mild winter, even up here in our little micro-climate of ours, I was ready to put away the woolens and inspired by all the robins in our yard to start designing for the warmer days ahead. I wanted to design a garment that could be worn for those chilly days in spring but could also wear well through summer. These colorful frocks do just that! Right now, they could be layered with your favorite corduroys or wooly tights. The sleeveless top can be layered atop a turtleneck or tee and the blouse paired with a cardigan. In the summer, wear them alone with a skirt or shorts. The fabric is a light breathable cotton with details for added comfort for the active child. It has two wooden button closures that are easy enough for little hands to button. Visit kri-hem.com to place an order!
