Lady Bug! Knee Socks/Hair Clip/Handpainted Box

Who doesn’t love ladybugs?! And “Ladybug Girl”! I saw this book and just loved it-a little girl out to prove that she is not too little. The knee socks each have a hand made ladybug with embroidery detailing, a little hair clip to match,and of course a hand painted personalized box to store everything in! Oh, I’m already thinking of how much fun it would be to make a ladybug tutu, shirt (LBG on it, of course), lady bug wings, how about a fun stuffed dog named Bingo like LBG’s?! Too many fun things to do and not enough time! A mom told me how much she loved knee socks for her daughter instead of tights-easier up and down for pottying and they don’t sag (myself having three boys, I had no idea…). Thanks mom (Debbie)! Hope Samantha loves her lady bug fun stuff! Email me at shannon@coffeycreationsforkids.com for your own custom kids creations!

Claudia’s Pet Shop Palace!

This “Pet Shop Palace” was made for all of Claudia’s Littlest Pet Shop creatures.  The shelving was all handcrafted and hand painted especially for Claudia! There’s a balcony especially for Niku-the littlest hamster who has been with Claudia ever since she was a baby-he even has his own sign “Niku’s Pad”. The Palace is set up as a shelving system with two opening doors attached to the front middle made in the shape of a house. The house doors have six larger windows (two with flower pots and flowers), four circular windows and two mini doors that open at the bottom. There is a fireplace set up with a couch on the left, two additional mantles  or mini shelving, three additional mini shelves (one with a magnetic strip to attach more pet shop guys!), and a magnetic flower on the bottom right. The palace is enhanced with artwork depicting several different scenes to go with all of the different types of Pet Shop animals that Claudia has. Open the large house doors to see an aquarium on the top level (with a mini shelf to place a fish or other sea creature), the next level down sports scatter flat ferns and the flat trees as seen in Africa for Claudia’s safari animals, and the next level down is a desert scene also with a mini shelf to perch a lizard getting warmed up in the sun! On the bottom right of the palace is a flower garden with a magnetic flower to attach a butterfly or ladybug pet shop pet to. Notice when the large doors are opened the additional wooden pieces on the left and right- these were made to perch pet shop creatures on and actually hang them from, Claudia’s name is “hidden” in the swirly designs painted on them. A sign with “Claudia’s Pet Shop Palace” and the address of her palace is hung from the shelving from cathedral chains.  This project isn’t quite yet completed-check back again for more details!

Baby Girl Bibs

These little bibs are fit for a princess! These bibs were made to coordinate with baby Valan’s room and bedding colors. The bright pink bib has a “V” hand embroidered in a stem stitch using silk embroidery ribbon, the backing of the bib is a soft white cotton. One of the lighter pink bibs has a flower accent (made to match her bedding and baby pillow), the flower is worked using a lazy daisy stitch, a few straight stitches, and french knots. The monogram on this bib is done in a french knot. The other light pink bib has Valan’s name done in a back stitch that then name is framed in a wrapped backstitch and two little flowers made using lazy daisy stitches and french knots. Both light pink bibs have the darker pink backing. To see baby Valan’s matching pillow click here.

Turkey Pancakes!

Forget those pancake molds! Those things never seem to work well, if at all. You just get a gloppy mess and a pancake that looks like a blob. Make your pancakes in smaller circles (about 3 inch circles), and cut one in strips to make the turkey’s feathers and head/neck. Cut a teeny triangle for his beak ,  two smaller pieces for his legs, add some chocolate chip eyes (you can leave out the turkey poop if you want…), and some powdered sugar for snow. Your pancake turkey is enjoying the season’s first snowfall and your child is actually eating his turkey-what?!

Frame it!

What better way to save some of that art that by showing it off on your walls?! I pick a few favorites here and there and my guys just beam to see their art displayed so proudly! This would also make a great gift for a grandparent or even for mom or dad for the office!

Handmade Felt Stockings

I started making these felt stockings years ago when I had only one little guy’s to make. Through the years I’ve added “Uncen Shaun’s”, and two more little boys’ stockings! These stockings are made by sewing a 3/4 inch edge around the felt in a red thread and finishing it off with a blanket stitch. The cuff is also finished off in a blanket stitch. The names are embroidered using a chain stitch, and the snow flakes are made using straight stitches. The representative snowmen/women are made using white felt and scraps of material for the hats and scarves. The snowpersons’ buttons and eyes are made using french knots and the arms and hands are made using straight stitches.  For your own custom personalized children’s items e-mail me at shannon@coffeycreationsforkids.com !
