Elijah the Fireman!

All little boys grow up and want to be a fireman!  Elijah asked me to make him a fireman's outfit for his 6th birthday. (It had to be red!) Found the fabric @ Waste Centre + Craft Concept.Then the creative juices had to come out to draft the pattern. Instead of drafting the jacket, I searched through old Burda magazines for a pattern I could alter. (Fireman jackets are loose!) The jacket has pockets (all boys want to put things into their pockets!)  Found the perfect belt at Waste Centre for only R4! (can't make one for that price!)
I made the fireman badge as well as his name tag coating it with epoxy.  (Elisa has a name tag as well as a Nurse 911 badge)
The trousers I drafted and they also have pockets.
Elijah could not wait to wear his Fireman's Outfit!

Mother's Day

This as a coaster and magnet was very popular at the I Heart Market on Saturday!

Even though my mom has passed away, I feel her around me all the time!
