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!
