This past weekend, asides from having to do some work at home, I completed my first order of crayon roll-ups. Technically, my first order was from my sister-in-law, she did pay me for it but my first "real" order is her friend who received one and decided she wanted to use them as birthday party giveaways. I made four last weekend and did the last three yesterday. They are really easy to make and I have pretty much got it down to a science. I plan to just make a bunch more when I have some more time so that if anyone wants to order them, they are ready to go. I have to admit, I am pretty proud of myself.
In between making these roll ups, I had to attempt to make a plush robot that my godson/nephew Blake wanted. He and his mom found a photo of what he wanted and I basically had to figure out for myself how to put it all together. He has been asking me every week if I made it, I felt bad each time I had to tell him no. Luckily, his birthday party is coming up this weekend and the "yobot" below will be part of his gift. Since it's pretty small, I was too scared to sew up the pieces together with my machine so I hand stitched everything. It took me almost three hours. Man, I hope this kid like the robot.
