#boxybagswap

Three Dandelions Shop hosted their first swap in September 2016.  This was the first swap I signed up for.  We made Kelby Sews’ Boxy Bag.

This is my sneak peak photo.

My partner is a San Diego Chargers fan, love all things Star Wars, and had all the heart eyes emoji for the Rifle Paper Co’s first fabric line.

I had a great time with my first swap that I signed up for three more within two weeks of signing up for this one.  I’ve since completed eight more swaps.  They are addicting!!

Car Caddy aka Pinspiration numero – sesenta y cinco

This caught my eye as I was looking for things to make for little boys.  I wanted something small and fun that they could carry around with them.

My newphew-B2 loves Star Wars.  So I knew I wanted to make him a Star Wars themed caddy.  When I went to look for cars, all I could find was actual Tie Fighter, etc shaped toys and wasn’t sure how to make that work.  Then I went down the next aisle where the Hot Wheels are and wha-la!  I found what I was looking for!!  I posted this photo on my Instagram and my nephew-B2 saw it and told his mom to buy that for him.  Haha!

I followed the tutorial on Smart School House.  Here is my inside altogether just making sure that the cars fit.

And here it is all done!  I went with this blue Star Wars print as the “road” since they’re in space, even though cars are what I provided.  This was for my nephew-B2’s 2016 birthday.  Then for Christmas 2016 I gave him two more cars to fill the other spaces.

From the top you can still see the cars.

This is a different caddy that I made for a friend’s kid for Christmas 2016.  For his birthday 2017 he got two more cars.

My OH neighbor-L loves construction trucks so I made one for him using construction trucks for Christmas 2016.

These were pretty fun and easy to make.  They make great gifts, even for girls if you could find something girly.  =)
