Grass Catcher for Toy Lawn Mower

My little guys love to be just like Daddy! If Daddy’s lawn mower has a grass catcher-his needs one too! This little project was pretty easy to do, I bent up some wire hangers into a frame and used duct tape to cover any ends of the hangers, then covered it with an outdoor sturdy material and attached it to the frame by folding the edges around the wire and using fabric tac (fabric glue).  The catcher has a portion of the wire exposed to hang it right onto the lawn mower handle, this makes it extra easy to take on and off. (I think I may add a bit of velcro to hold the bottom of the catcher closer to the mower so it doesn’t drag behind-photo to be added later!!) We have already filled the catcher with lots and lots of “helicopters” and emptied it out into a garbage bag. Leonard is thrilled that he has his very own grass catcher-just like Daddy!!!

The Orange Kitty Collection

All the fun Orange Kitty items were made from an orange and white striped repurposed men’s shirt! What fun it was turning one men’s shirt into so many girly little items!! My personal favorite, though are the bloomers! Girly bloomers with fun springtime blooms to match the fun dresses! The blooms are made of the orange and white striped shirting material and the stamens are hand embroidered orange and blue (to match the little Polo insignia) french knots, the green stems are done in a stem stitch and the little leaves are done in backstitches.  The little ruffly dress shows off the original “Polo” insignia and  is approximately a 6-12 month size. It has elastic on the shoulder ruffly straps, the back of the dress and under the arms. The halter dress has a ribbon that can be tied at the back of the neck or on one side or the other in the front (or back for that matter)-the halter used as a dress will fit sizes approximately 12-18 months or as a halter swing top from sizes 2-3T. The back of the halter dress shows off the original buttons of the men’s shirt, and the back of the dress is a bit longer than the front of the dress due to the nature of the Halter dress itself.  The orange kitty has hand embroidered eyes, nose and mouth. The matching bib also has hand embroidery accents and velcro dots to allow for a growing little girl!  The two coordinating hair bands are both made of elastic bands for stretch and comfort. This collection is one of a kind as I do not use patterns to make my childrens clothing.

Sorry-the only items left on this set are the adorable orange and white kitty, bib, and matching mini blanket.
