Tool Belt DIY

Elsa and Bob {Part 1}

I’ve actually sewn these shirts a while ago and haven’t had a chance to show them to you. Here is my cute couple Elsa and Bob. It was so adorable to see the two of them pose together and finally to get Elliott to stand still! Unbelievable what girls can do to boys! 🙂

DIY Elsa Frozen Shirt Bob the builder Shirt Toolbelt

I’ll first show you Bob the builder. I created the shirt with a tool belt for all of Elliott’s play tools. He loves to pretend building and working on his tool bench. And yes he loves to watch Bob the builder on TV too. 🙂

The belt was made out of scraps which I had left over from a shirt I made for E a long time ago.

What does the Fox say…

I was so happy to hear a couple days ago, that I was selected to test a pattern for two awesome gals in Germany. FinnLeys and Trollis Nadelwald worked together on the collaboration Freya meets Wildlife, which is just overly cute.IMG_2019

With this pattern you can create an super comfy costume for boys and girls. You can create a fox, dragon, raccoon, kitty or a bunny. And I just had to create a fox for the boys.5

And I have to say we are a bit fanatic with the foxes since Liam was born. As you can see 🙂 Finnley meets Wildlife

Elliott and I have listened to “What does the fox say..” over and over, it just gets stuck in your head and it”s funny, especially for a 3 year old Toddler.7

Halloween Pictures

I am so excited about these pictures. My coworker Vanessa Carmon took them when Elliott came to work! By the way I am back at work for a couple weeks. I just LOVE the pictures!

Elliott roaring

The last one shows Elliott smiling and roaring! We’ve taught him to “ROAR” when we ask him “how does the dragon do?” and he also does it when we ask him “how does the tiger do?”. At the moment he roars at everything!

I unfortunately didn’t wear a costume that day, because I woke up late and didn’t want to show up in the same costume, which I wore the 2 years in a row before. Instead I chose to wear something red, same colors which are in Elliott’s dragon costume. I am glad I did, because the colors reflect perfectly.

Tim had his crazy wig and his sequins jacket on. He looked just awesome! Did you see the Christmas Sweater T-Shirt underneath his jacket?
