Valentine Chair Pouch {Creative Carousel}

The Creative Carousel is back!

I am so excited to share some Valentine's Day-themed inspiration today!!

I love the Creative Carousel because it's my opportunity to join forces with some truly talented ladies.  After assigning a theme, we all set to work on a project.  It's so fun to see everyone'e individual creativity  shine.  After taking a look at my project, I hope you'll stop by to take a look at the other fabulous tutorials also!  Here is my contribution to the Creative Carousel:

 

As you know, I adore felt and have plenty left over from my quiet book and countless other projects!  Well, it's making another appearance today!  I first spotted similar chair pouches at Sheek Shindigs, and knew I wanted to create my own!   These will be our own little Valentine's Day mailboxes.

These were really quite simple to put together!  I sewed all 3 pouches for our family in an afternoon.   So let's get started!

For this project, you will need:

-- Felt (I used red and white)

-- Jumbo ricrac

-- Sewing velcro

-- Flocked heat adhesive vinyl from Silhouette (optional)

-- Ribbon or other embellishing supplies

-- Sewing supplies

To start, I created a heart pattern from freezer paper.  If you would like to use the same pattern, just click here to download mine.  I did resize the pattern so it would fit a 12x12 sheet of paper.  After creating the heart, I pinned it to white felt and just cut out the scalloped heart (the back) by hand.

I also cut out a second red heart and chopped off the top to create the pouch.  To hang the pouch on the chair, I cut a long strip of felt about 19 inches long, but this was custom for our individual kitchen chairs.

Felt Heart Garland

Hello, my friends!

I needed something cheery to get me started this week!  Over the weekend, I worked hard on my Valentine's Day mantle.  I needed a garland of sorts.  During the fall, I saw all sorts of felt leaf garlands on Pinterest.  To me, there is nothing more "homey" than felt.  So over the weekend, I sat down and created something to help spice up my Valentine's Day decor.

This was the perfect project to work on while Mr. Oopsey Daisy was out of town. I watched a couple of chick flicks, and hand stitched these hearts together.

You can make your own with some scraps on hand!

Let's get started!

I started with the felt.   I secretly wanted to use all wool felt, but my frugal conscience got the best of me.  So I purchased the red and mustard wool felt, and I had the other colors on hand.  I LOVE the color scheme!  The mustard and turquoise were fun and unexpected pops of color.

Then I sat down and just started cutting out a whole lot of hearts!  I didn't use a pattern--just used the old traditional method of folding the fabric over to achieve a symmetrical heart.  I think I cut out about 90 hearts total.

It was 12:30 AM, and I couldn't thread the yearn through the needle for the life of me.  Finally I tried this trick of taping the end with masking tape. Duh!  It worked perfectly.

I knotted the end of the yarn to prevent fraying and then started stitching!

I made sure that I had plenty of excess yarn so I could sew as long of a garland as possible.  (I didn't want to have to thread that needle any more times than completely necessary!)

I wanted to be unpredictable, so I didn't repeat the colors in any certain pattern.  Crazy, I know!!

I just knotted the very end of the yarn, and started draping!

So what do you think?

Do you want to know something silly?

I really don't have a mantle--just this built-in area for our TV.  I avoid showing pictures of this area for some reason.  This might be its very first reveal on Oopsey Daisy. I am never sure how to decorate this little spot especially with the distraction of the television.  But one of my goals for 2012 is to be more real.  So this is us!

And I love how this little garland make our home so cheery and homey!

Thanks for reading!

JOY-ful Christmas Display {Creative Carousel}

It's that time again!

This month's Creative Carousel is hosted by Amanda at Every Creative Endeavor.  Every day this week, you will find some incredible creative tutorials-- all centered on holiday decor.

For my project, I created this JOY-ful Christmas display on my mock "mantel".

I miss having a mantel.

Our home doesn't have a real mantel--just a high ledge... A ledge so high that I have to get a chair and stand on my tiptoes to decorate.  But I do love decorating the top of my DVD cupboard!

I have always loved the red and aqua color scheme for Christmas, so I set out to create a happy, colorful display to welcome in the holidays.

I started out with these large letters from JoAnn's.  I had the O from this P-O-P frame project!  And I used coupons to purchase the other letters.  I am proud to say I spent less than $10 on everything!  Not bad!

Here is a rundown on how I decorated each letter:

1.  I gathered some felt I already had on hand.  I probably used close to 3/4 yard of red felt to completely cover this letter.

2.  I put on a movie, and just started cutting out tons of red felt circles about 2-inches each.

3.  I folded each circle in fourths and pinched the bottom point.

4.  I just started hot gluing each folded circle to cover the J.  (Don't tell, but I only covered the front of the "J" because I realized no one would see the back!)

5.  I love the texture of all that felt!  Doesn't it remind you of rose petals?  Love.

Next up:  Letter O!

1.  For this letter, I grabbed an old book that I found at Good Will a year or so ago.  I cut each page into strips about 2 inches wide.

2.  I used mod podge to wrap each strip around the O.

3.  I gave the entire O a coat of mod podge over the top, too.

4.  After allowing the letter to dry completely, I covered the other side of the letter, too.

5.  I added a jingle bell flower in the corner!

 

I think this is my favorite part of the entire project!

Lucky for me, the Y was the quickest!  I had it done in about 10 minutes!

1.  I found some plush aqua yarn for this letter.  I wanted lots of texture!

2.  I used spray adhesive to adhere the yarn to the letter.  I just wrapped it around and around, as tightly as I could.

3.  Once I had wrapped the letter tightly with the yarn, I went over it again loosely to give it a messy look.

I put together the rest of the display using items found around my house....

I wrapped an empty box, found a spare frame (I used the frame and its beadboard matting), and threw in a few other random items!  I wanted the letters at varying heights, so I used a candlestcik holder and wrapped an empty box to create levels.

 I have a lot of gold in my Christmas decor, so I thought the gold beads might tie in nicely!

I created a few quick garlands--a paper doily garland along with a messy ruffled felt garland.

I am so thrilled with how this turned out!  This makes me want to drink hot cocoa and listen to Christmas music!

This is only the beginning of a whole week of fabulous holiday decor projects!

Felt ABC Mat

Just this once, I'm skipping my weekly Wednesday's Wowzers.  Consider yesterday's roundup of gratitude projects my wowzers!  Instead, I wanted to share the ABC mat I shared at Brown Paper Packages a few months back.

Alright, my friends.

As far as I'm concerned, this is go-time for Christmas.  This year, my husband and I are saving up to buy our very own home!  So I am attempting to create a more meaningful, handmade Christmas this year.  I am hoping that I can whip up some fun handmade gifts for Little Man and Mr. Oopsey Daisy (although I must say that the hubs is much more difficult to create gifts for!)

A while back, I created this ABC mat to help Little Man practice his ABC's.

Even though I created this months ago, wouldn't this make a fun handmade gift?

We are enjoying our ABC mat so much!

In fact, Little Man begs to get it out each and every day.  We play all kinds of games so that he can stretch, run, hop, and jump all over the alphabet!  (Think hopscotch mat for ABC's!)

I whipped up this ABC mat in one afternoon.  Want to make your very own?

Let's get started!

Last year, I made a quiet book, and I still have plenty of felt to go around!  So I picked out some of my favorite colors to highlight each letter.

I wanted the mat to be bright and colorful.

 

I purchased 2 yards of turquoise felt on sale at JoAnn's.  I cut out a large rectangle that was approximately 43" x 73".

This would be the main base of the mat.

 

To cut out the circles, I traced several tupperware lids that were all different sizes.  I used disappearing ink to trace them.  I wanted a variety of colors and sizes to make it interesting.

 

Here is my stack of 26 circles (one for each letter of the alphabet), ready to go!

I wanted to space out all of the circles in an interesting way, so I pinned them roughly where I wanted them before sewing.  I was also careful not to pin them too close to the edge so I could add a border later on.

Then I got to work sewing all those circles on!  It became a little cumbersome to sew circles in the middle of a lot of fabric.  I was careful not to let the felt bunch up as I was sewing along!

I love polk-a-dots!  So I hot glued this polk-a-dot ribbon as a border all the way around the entire mat.

 

Now for the letters!!

I cut the letters out of fabric using my Cricut.  To make the cutting process easier, I had already ironed on Heat 'N Bond and peeled away the paper layer.

 

Then I ironed each letter on a circle.  Because I had already ironed on the Heat 'N Bond, they ironed on very easily.  I was sure to spend plenty of time ironing the letters on.  I wanted these to stand the test of time!

I really love that I didn't have to sew these on.  They have held up just beautifully!

And that's it!  Fold it up, roll it up like a sleeping bag, and you can store it away and pull it out for special occasions.

Here are a few ways that we have used our ABC mat:

* Ask your child to find a letter and perform an action.  (Hop on the letter "J")

* Ask your child to put a different body part on a specific letter.  This ends up looking a lot like Twister! (Put your nose on the letter "N")

* Play a "Simon Says" game.  (Simon says to hop to the letter "B")

* Play music and let your child hop from letter to letter to the music.  Stop the music and ask child to identify what letter he/she is standing on.

* For more advanced children, hop from letter to letter to spell out entire words.

Little Man loved playing, and putting his hand/foot/nose, etc. on different letters!  Here he is with his ear on the Letter J!

TIP:  If you prefer a no-sew version of this project, no problem!  I used a shower curtain liner as a teacher.  I drew the letters and circles on the mat with a sharpie.  The children in my class could slip off their shoes and spell out their spelling words on this spelling "mat."  It was one of their favorite activities.

Felt Car Mat {With Tutorial}

Finally!

For a while now, I wondered if this tutorial would ever get published.  Not only did this take a solid week of crafting effort to complete, but this tutorial has been a doozie!  It's taken several late-late nights (yes, even later than usual!), but it's finally here!

Today I want to share Little Man's new favorite place to play: 

For all you glue-gun lovers, this fun car mat is 100% no-sew!

And this was created just for Little Man!  As I was working on this, he started calling this his car MAP.  So I took his advice.  I turned this into a semi-realistic map of the streets near our home.  PLUS Little Man is very, very visual.  He thrives on logos, so he selected dozens of logos that would be used on this car map.

I'm happy to say that this car map/mat is very realistic.

I love this mat is HUGE, but it rolls up easily like a sleeping bag.  Perfect for easy storage!


In just 2 short days, the car mat has provided hours of entertainment.  So much entertainment that we never want to get out of our pajamas! :)

And it's perfect for his little imagination!

Toy Story Character Pennant Banner

Another crafting first...

To create this fun Toy Story character pennant banner for Little Man's birthday party, I used fabric transfers for the first time!  I had been wanting to try this for a long time, and Little Man's birthday seemed like the perfect occasion.  This was a piece-of-cake project--and no sewing is required! 

I created a triangle pattern using cardstock and cut out several red, yellow, and blue pennants out of felt.  (Once again, I have found a fabulous use for my felt scraps left over from my quiet book!)
You can find a package that looks just like this at your local office store or even Wal-Mart!  You can find dark or light fabric transfers.  I chose dark for this project.
I simply found images of our favorite Toy Story characters on Google images, printed them out on the fabric transfer paper, and cut them out.
I followed the instructions on the package to iron the characters onto the felt using a piece of transfer paper in between.  Then you just peel it away, leaving the character.  It's like magic!
I did sew the ribbon across the top, but you could use a hot glue gun just as easily. (Again the cowprint matches Jessie and Woody).  We hung this banner in our kitchen.  I have to admit that we still haven't taken it down.  Oops! But Little Man sits and names all the Toy Story characters while he eats.  So cute!

Guess what?!  I finally have my party photos edited...
So look for a post about the entire Toy Story party tomorrow--it's the final shebang of my Toy Story birthday party ideas!

Book Advent: Day 16 {Gingerbread Man Party!}

If you are new to Oopsey Daisy, I am taking it kind of easy with big projects to focus on Christmas this year. We just moved into a new home before Thanksgiving, and as much as I'd love to do a ton of intensive crafts... right now, I can't even walk into my craft room!  In fact, everything is still in boxes.  And the boxes and I are friends until Christmas.  I am doing my best to focus on enjoying the magic of Christmas with Little Man, who is almost 2, and soaking up all the joy and wonder of Christmas-time this year!
I have been looking forward to this day in the book advent for a long time.  We read one of my all-time favorites, The Gingerbread Man.  This story is just perfect for kids... how can you NOT love a gingerbread man?!  There are tons of fabulous activities you can do with this, too.  We whipped out just a few for our little gingerbread boy party! 
By the way, this worked out perfectly because we were stranded in the house all day.  Mr. Oopsey Daisy accidentally took my keys with him to work!  I get restless easily and love my daily errands, but we really had a ton of gingerbread fun!
It all started with these little gingerbread man bean bags.  For this project...
* I used a template I found online and cut out 5 little gingerbread men (and women!) out of felt.  
* I hot glued the eyes, mouths, ricrac, and buttons before sewing.  
* Then, I just sewed all the way around their little bodies and left an opening to fill them up with rice.
* Filling them with rice was a bit tricky.  Because they're so small, I used a knife to work the rice into all of those little nooks and crannies!
* Finally,  just sewed up the opening!  
That's it!
This little guy is supposed to be Little Man!
Here is our little army of gingerbread people.  Aren't they cute?!  One is supposed to be Little Man, one is me (the brown-eyed beauty!), and one is Mr. Oopsey Daisy.  But because I had extra felt, I made two more for fun!

After reading the story, we did all kinds of things with our little bean bags!  We named the colors of the buttons and pointed out ways that the gingerbread men (and women!) were the same/different.  But Little Man's favorite part was doing a little bean bag toss.  We tossed them into laundry baskets.  Later on, even when I was using the baskets for laundry, Little Man shuttled them around!  What a sweetheart! :)
Next, we made gingerbread playdough!  Have I ever mentioned that I have no sense of smell??  Well, I am a 4-sense gal who relies on her husband's rather weak sense of smell.  I asked him to help me with my spices, but he tells me that it smells just like gingerbread!  We had so much fun playing with this today--it's been ages since we had playdough out! 
I let Little Man use cookie cutters to cut out his own gingerbread cookies. He kept trying to "eat" his cookies... it must have been that yummy-smelling dough!  
He was totally wrapped up in this for a while.  Success!
Finally, we mixed up our own batch of gingerbread cookies.  We made just 1 giant gingerbread cookie.  I did my best to sculpt a body!  As we baked it, I turned the oven light on, and I told Little Man to make sure that the gingerbread boy didn't try to run away!  He did this dutifully!  Then, once he had baked and cooled, I let Little Man design this cookies just the way he wanted.  He loved being in charge of the sprinkles!  After seeing the addition of the M&M's, his favorites, he couldn't wait to eat the gingerbread man tonight!

I didn't think he would like gingerbread all that much, but I was wrong.  He loved it!  I asked him which part of the gingerbread man he wanted to eat first--the head, arms, or legs.  He just replied with, "M&M's!"  He enjoyed this a lot!!  Of course he had to practice acting out the favorite line from the story, "Run, run, as fast as you can.  You can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man!"  He got some good exercise with all of his running laps today!

Here's one of my favorite sights... when he chooses to re-read a story I've taught him.  Life is good.

Thanks for making Oopsey Daisy part of your day!
PS If you would like any of the recipes I used today, just let me know!  I'll post them tomorrow if you're interested...

Book Advent: Day 6 {Candy Cane Mouse}

Hello, my Oopsey pals!!  
I was a little behind today and didn't get today's book under the tree until this afternoon.  Little Man woke up from his nap, ran over to the tree, picked up his book and said, "Book! Book!"  He immediately ripped the paper off and wanted to read today's book!  It melted my heart that he's already figured out this routine and loves it!  I needed some of that affirmation.  It makes all of the legwork 100% worth it!
Today we read The Mouse Before Christmas by Michael Garland.  This book has stunning illustrations.  It is the story of a mouse who wants to meet Santa and ends up joining him in his travels across the world.  Very sweet.  
For our project today, we made candy cane mice!  We used to make these with my Mom as easy holiday favors.  I took one apart to use as my pattern, and it was so simple to re-create!
To make your own candy cane mouse....
* Cut an oval out of felt.
* Cut 2 slits in the center.
* Cut a long oval for the ears.  It should by wider than the length of the slits.
* Tuck the ears through the slits and just gather them like a bow.
* Slide a candy cane in between the ears and the body.
* Hot glue a pom pom nose and google eyes.
This is how the back will look.

 The candy cane is supposed to look like the mouse's tail.
We made one for Little Man plus Mom and Dad!  Little Man keeps carrying his around and comparing it to the mouse in the book.  Such a smarty pants! 
Thanks for reading Oopsey Daisy!

The Quiet Book Makes Its Debut!

My friends, I thought today might never come.  When I decided months ago to tackle the quiet book, I think I was a bit ambitious--or perhaps crazy!  I planned 20 detailed pages for my book, and attempted to finish one page each week.  Page by page, piece by piece, the pages came together and I have been dying to show you the finished product!  I can't begin to tell you how happy I am to have actually finished this big (more like enormous!) project!  
No, you aren't seeing double!!  By the time I painstakingly finished each page, with each and every tiny velcro piece, I realized my book would be enormously thick!  I finally decided to make TWO quiet books.  This way, Little Man won't tire of the same book over and over... I can alternate which quiet book I bring with us to church, the doctor's office, or even on a road trip!!  I can also switch out pages and create a whole new combination of quiet book fun!

So come take a peek inside the books with me!  I will share some helpful hints at the end of this post...

{Just click pictures to enlarge}
Build a Hamburger Page
Skill:  Decision making, food knowledge, imaginative play.
Using burger accessories stored in the McDonald's bag, you can build your own hamburger, complete with meat, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and pickles.  Accessories are secured with velcro.
Ladybug Page
Skill:  Buttoning.
The ladybug's spots can be buttoned and unbottoned.
Stoplight Page
Skill:  Matching colors, learning about traffic rules.
This page was the first page I tackled because it was the easiest!!  You can match the green, yellow, and red stop light colors to the stop light using velcro.

Road Page
Skill:  Motor skills, imaginative play.
A matchbox car, attached with string, is parked in the garage.  You can drive the car around the little neighborhood.

Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head
Skill:  Knowing body parts, practice with dressing.
This is still my favorite page!!  There is a bare potato body sewed on the page, and you can secure the spud face and accessories with velcro.  Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head have a variety of accessories, and I love that I can continue to make more!  You can see this page in detail here.

Basket of Accessories!
  
Skill:  Using clothes pins.
This page is directly next to the Potato Heads.  All of the extra accessories are stored in the basket, and you can hang them up by clothes pins also.  
This is how the 2 pages look next to each other.
Balloon Page
Skill: Snapping, knowledge of shapes, matching.
Shape balloons are matched and secured using snaps.  The ribbon can also be tied and untied.

Counting Page
Skill:  Counting.
Beads are used to count the watermelon seeds by sliding the beads from one side of the ribbon to another.

Peek-A-Boo Bus Page
Skill:  Motor skills, guessing/predicting.
Behind each window and each wheel, I sewed vinyl windows.  I slid pictures into each window so you can open and close the flaps to play peek-a-boo like this:

Telephone Page
Skill:  Imaginative play, snapping, number knowledge.
The phone receiver, attached with a curly shoe string, can be snapped to the phone receiver.  You can pick up the phone receiver and have pretend phone calls!

Tic Tac Toe
Skill:  Reasoning/logic
The playing mat is also a pocket so that the X's and O's store neatly inside.  You can play tic tac toe quietly all through church if you wish... Mr. Daisy and I tested it out today!

Baseball Page
Skill:  Motor skills, matching.
The baseball and bat can be removed and matched using velcro.  You can put your hand inside the leather baseball glove!

Chick-a Chick-a Boom Boom
Skill:  ABC's.
The coconut letters are stored on the next page.  The letters can be added to the coconut tree, attached with velcro.

Boat Page
Skill:  Zipping.
The coconut letters are stored inside the boat, which is opened with a zipper.  Here is a view of the 2 pages side by side:

Barn Page
Skill:  Imaginative Play.
The barn doors open to a pocket full of barn animal finger puppets!  (That is the one thing I still have left to do!)

Ice Cream Page
Skill:  Imaginative Play, knowledge of food.
The food truck is opened with a flap that holds numerous other ice cream flavor scoops.  You can build your own ice cream cone by securing your scoops with velcro.

Clock Page
Skill:  Telling time, number skills.
The minute hand and hour hand rotate, and can spin to tell a new time!
Gumball Machine
Skill:  Matching colors.
Gumballs are matched by color, using velcro to secure them in place.

Tie A Shoe Page
Skill:  Tying shoes.
The shoe can be tied and untied.

Notes Page
Skill:  Drawing, writing.
I sewed 3 pockets to hold a notebook along with a pen, pencil, or crayons, or little love notes.
Here are some helpful hints for the entire process:
* I chose to sew my pages on white muslin.  Each page is 10 x 12.5 inches.  
* When I was done with each individual page, I sewed the pages back to back with another layer of muslin ironed onto a sheet of interfacing for extra thickness, stiffness, and durability. 
* I used A LOT of felt.  I think I bought 3/4 yard of each of the major colors of felt.  I have used most of it!
* I decided to make a 3-ring book because of the flexibility it offered me.  I could take pages out to pass them down to children down the pew.  I could take them out to wash them or even to fix up the sewing in case of wear and tear!  I could make the book bigger or smaller, or even add pages to it!  (I am already dreaming of a Halloween jack-o-lantern page or a Christmas tree page!)
* I used large eyelets  and used a piece of notebook paper as my guide to create the holes and then put it all together with book rings.
* I sewed my covers with regular cotton fabric, slightly larger than the pages.  Again, I sewed a sheet of muslin with interfacing in between them.





* Each quiet book has a button strap to keep it closed... I don't want all of those goodies spilling out any time soon!  On the back of the book covers, I sewed a pocket just in case I feel like throwing in a treat, a love note, or in the event that some pieces that DID fall out last minute.  Or maybe it will just hold some candy for ME!





Whew!
Can you see why this took months to finish?!  I think it was probably crazy for attempting this, but I am so glad I was that crazy!  I {heart} these books!  Little Man gave his stamp of approval today in church, and I can only imagine that they will get years of experience and use!  
*********************
Now, I realize I didn't go into a whole lot of details about the creation of each and every page.  I wanted to show off the entire product first!
SO now it's your turn, my dear and lovely readers! 
* Do you have a specific question about the process? 
* Would like to see one page in more specific detail?
* Would you like me to create a downloadable template for a specific page?
Leave me a comment with your questions, and I will probably type up a question and answer post if there is enough interest.  
Enjoy your week!

The Eensy Weensy Spider

Hello, my friends!  I am beginning to see the end of the pile of laundry.  I have food in the fridge and even a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies baked up!  That's progress!  Now Little Man just needs to get used to going to bed early again!!  The joys of coming home from va-cay!


Remember these little guys:

 Joining their ranks...

It's no secret that I love visual aids to help me sing with Little Man!!  Now say hello to our newest friend:

This was so easy and fun to make!


I created the face on a black felt circle.  I made some silly googly eyes and a mouth with a tongue because I wanted this to be a silly spider. Honestly, spiders are not my favorite creature in the whole world, so I wanted it to be goofy instead of scary!  


I stuck the pipe cleaner legs in between the face and another black felt circle, and sewed almost all the way around.  Before closing up the circles, I stuck in a bag full of rice to create a bean bag, and then sewed up the rest!  I curled up the legs so they would be as creepy and crawly as possible... and that's it!  Easy breezy!

Honestly, Little Man was slightly afraid of this at first.  Can't say I blame him too much!  BUT the other day, he was watching Barney and they were singing "The Eensey Weensy Spider", and he ran over to his music basket, and grabbed out the spider and danced around with it, quite proud of himself!  I was so tickled that he made the connection.  He really is a musical genius.  He recognizes a tune immediately.  And that, my friends, is why I make these silly little musical visual aids!  They are wonderful learning tools!!


Have a great day today!  Friday is just around the corner!
