Birthday making

My little boy's 4th birthday gave me the chance to do some more crafting just for him. 


Including 1 birthday carrot cake as requested!

I have been  meaning to make Joshua some more personalised t-shirts for a while, and his birthday was the perfect reason to get one done!  He was asking for a robot a lot lately so that gave me the idea for the theme of this t-shirt.  It also meant that I could use a nice square font for the name meaning no fiddly curves to sew around!!


I am really pleased with this, the colours are lovely and bright, just what I like Joshua to wear. 

As I admired my work a brainwave hit!  I grabbed the leftover fabric and began cutting and sewing...


All sewn up, and we had a robot plushie!


Joshua loves it and has named him Scrappy!

On the tummy I added a little stamped name label -


Along with Scrappy and the t-shirt I also managed to make a quick little amigurumi froggy!  Isn't he cute? We have been doing a lot of counting songs so I thought this would be a great prop for the '5 little speckled frogs' song. 


Here's a link to the tutorial I used for the frog.  I found it quite easy and also used my first ever magic circles, the tutorial is here

Here is my little cool dude trying out his new birthday roller blades!

    What a fantastic mum you are, Rachael!!! The cake looks amazing - and I love that you made a robot to match with the t-shirt! :-)

  2. I bet he was thrilled to bits with his robot t-shirt and matching friend. What a fab idea.
