So two weeks ago I come upstairs and smell plastic burning. I say to Alden “what is that smell?” He announces that he was helping me out by unloading the dishwasher (yes he is a sweet boy) and he found his plastic lunch bag and noticed it was still wet so he put in on top of the toaster and turned it on…. to DRY IT OFF. (if I could insert big EYES here I would). Needless to say, it was the end of the spider man plastic lunch bag.
I’ve been meaning to get him a new one for, oh about 2 weeks, but I never got around to it. (i’m getting forgetful in my old age).
I found this great new blog about a month ago (maybe??) Anywho, Kristin at Pea Pod Creations is just great. She is super nice and has some GREAT projects on there!!! (Right now she is competing in the SYTYC competition right now! So go and vote and see the cute stuff there!)
This morning I spot Kristin’s post and thought hey I can make that and I already have enough scraps around to do it. So I did. 🙂
I wanted to make it personalized. So I took one of Alden’s MANY drawings
and traced it onto my outside material. (I used a thick muslin – almost canvas material I had)
and did some embroidery. Then it SCREAMS ALDEN to me 🙂
I linked it up a few places!
