DIY Embroidered Espadrilles

 As one of their Master Makers Fairfield World provided me with supplies used in this project as well as compensating me for this post, but all ideas and opinions are my own. This post also includes affiliate links. 


This past month I have had such a hard time keeping up with blogging, I think partially this pregnancy has just taken a lot out of me, then you throw in the end of the school year with everything the kids have going on, it has just been a crazy few weeks. Hopefully I can get back in a good routine and get back to posting more regularly but going into summer with all of the kids home and 2 months left of this pregnancy, I'm not making any promises. I actually have lots of projects to post about, some that are already finished and some that I am working on, it is just getting them written up that I have been having a hard time with. Today I am sharing a project that I have been meaning to do for a while and finally got done. I made a pair of shoes for my daughter. That probably seems like kind of a strange thing to make but it was actually really easy.

Boxy Monkey


About a year ago I posted a pattern for Boxy Fox. People seemed to like it so I decided to do a little set. I ended up making a trio of woodland type animals, a fox, an owl, and a bear. They still tend to be some of my more popular patterns so for quite a while I have been thinking about doing another set of animals and I finally decided to do it. So without further ado meet the newest member of the boxy family, Boxy Monkey.

She is a Wildflower Embroidery

*This post contains affiliate links*

The first of each month I participate in a craft challenge with a group of craft bloggers. This month the theme of the challenge was "Garden". I decided that I didn't want to something actually for the garden but instead something that was flowery and reminded me of a garden. I decided on a flowery embroidery project. I wanted to try something kind of new so I combined the embroidery with a little bit of paint and I really liked the end result.
