I did a bit of felt sewing for each child for Valentine's Day. This horse had been hanging around our house unfinished for nearly a year (pattern from this book, Feltcraft), so I added the last details to give to Marian, my horse lover. I wanted something practical, if I could, and decided on a guitar pick case for Audrey. Even though I started with a lavender felt base, I meant to make it Valentine-y, but in the end just went with the star instead, because it's her signature shape these days. The other side has a flap that buttons down with a yellow button and elastic loop. Reuben's love robot is my attempt to be boy-y. I wanted a case for his immunization record, so it didn't just look like one of the other folded bits of paper that always end up crowding every bag in this house. I had a "helpful technology" theme idea in my head that linked little robots with vaccines...but Nathan just gave me an eye-roll for that. It's a bit of a stretch :O. The other side has "Reuben the Wilde" in green.
This photo was just from yesterday, but I wanted to show off Reuben's V-day wear: an "I Stole Mommy's Heart" shirt. Sure 'nuff! Plus, M is wearing her heart socks, so it fits the theme :).
