Craft time

With spring break, Megan’s 8th birthday and Easter all coming at us in the next couple weeks, we had to get moving early when we planned out gifts for the upcoming events.


We decided to try out some of Ana White‘s plans and build Megan’s American Girl horses a stable.  It was a project that was put off for a long time because we weren’t sure how to do it.  We finally buckled down and got it started this past weekend and I finished it up yesterday.  I’m thrilled with the results and can’t wait for Megan to see it!

When I read all the plans and saw the dimensions of the stable, I cringed, knowing that it was huge but I went up and measured the space she had in her closet from wall to wall and realized it would just barely fit.  Unfortunately I didn’t measure from baseboard to baseboard.  It does fit in that space, but it can’t touch the ground because it won’t slide by the baseboards.  Oops!  I’m not really sure where it’s going to go now…  it may require an addition on the house.

In the midst of this, I got started on a couple sewing projects for Easter.  Now that the kids are doing jobs and earning money for them, they actually have money to spend so I wanted them to have wallets to keep it in when it left the house.  I searched Pinterest and came up with this pattern.  It was fairly straight forward and I’m pretty happy with how they turned out.  I did add a lot more velcro than the pattern initially asked for because I was afraid of money falling out.  Hopefully that won’t happen with this setup.

It even has a pocket for Meg to hold her library card!
