Craft Tutorial Sewing a Wall Pocket Tidey Tote for Kids

JC Handmade offers a wonderful tutorial to create the Kidlet::Wall Pocket Tidey Tote.

"I wanted something large enough to hold a bunch of books or softies, but small enough to use unobtrusively throughout our home. Kidlet has a deep gusset to accommodate lots and lots of the "stuff" that's always lying around and has a handy strap to fit over a doorknob. "

One Lil Cupcake Adorable Handcrafted Felt Hair Clips

I adore little girls clips, especially handcrafted clips that feature adorable animals and pretty little flowers. We certainly have a wonderful assortment of bows and crystal clips. However, I love the look of wool felt clips shaped into little flowers, frogs, and my favorite, lil' cupcakes.

We received the brown and pink flower clip for review from One Lil' Cupcake and Makenna wore it everyday for a week. She loves it. She is 3 years old and has a lot of hair, so I was actually surprised that such a small snap clip stayed in place. The felt helps keep the hair in place and is especially helpful for babies with fine hair. A small 1 1/2" snap clip is sandwiched between two flower shaped felt flowers. A little flower button is securely attached to the middle and carefully hand-stitched around the flower in a contrasting pink thread. This size clip is best suited for babies and toddlers, however big girl sizes up to 6 years of age are available upon request.

I love the gift set. For $64 you will receive twelve clips, one for each month of the year. Each seasonal clip is handmade to coordinate with each of her seasonal outfits. Gift sets arrive on a colorful designed calendar, perfect for giftgiving.

Order 4 or more hair clips and receive free shipping! (USA only)

Mabel's Labels Personalized Custom Labels for Sippy Cups, Clothing, Organization, and More

Mabel's Labels, a Canadian based company founded by moms, offers a great way to keep track of your child's items. They are perfect for labeling clothing, cups, and bags for school, daycare, camp, play dates, and more. The personalized labels enable you to customize labels with your choice of vibrant colors and choose from a variety of fun icon designs for boys and girls.

We received some samples to try and I love them. We tested one on a sippy cup and ran it through the dishwasher. They weren't kidding about labels staying put. After about five minutes of painstaking peeling, I was able to remove it. It did leave a sticky residue, which came right off with my fabulous Goo Gone sticky remover.

Famous Sticky Labels:

  • UV and fade resistant.
  • Withstands the dishwasher.
  • Colorful labels with a variety of fun icons to choose from.

  • Clothing Labels:

  • Includes iron-on, Tag-Mates, and shoe labels.
  • Resists wear and tear.
  • Withstands washer and dryer.

  • Do your kid's have allergies? The allergy labels allow you to list up to six allergies and stick the labels to food containers, cups, and more!

    Mabel's Labels isn't just for kids. Grown-ups can label their food containers, cups, silverware and won't have to worry about losing them at work. Plus, check out the household labels, which include classroom pack, crafter pack, and my favorite, the cord control.

    Mabel's Labels just made my life a little easier.
