Things With Wings!

It's time for the twins' birthdays again! And despite the fact that I didn't think I was going to be able to pull it off, I did. Because I rule. The twins are really into imaginative play, as any 5 year old is, and since mom is really into handmade stuff I pushed myself to complete a project for each of them. I can honestly say that it took longer for me to work up the motivation for these projects than to actually complete them. Especially since I completed both in a matter of a few hours (ONE DAY!) and put the project off for about two months...

Thing One is really into dragons and knights, so for him a handmade dragon capelet that he can easily get on and off (modeled by Diva-- note the fierceness). The capelet is made of felt, green glitter and matte orange, elastic and some velcro.

Thing Two is prefers things a little more feminine so for her, a monarch-inspired butterfly (also modeled by Diva).This is also made of felt, black glitter, purple and white, as well as some elastic.

I can't wait to see if they like them!


  1. these are awesome! what if i say that i only want handmade gifts for my boys...

  2. These look amazing. My youngest particularly liked dressing up (trip to the city farm dressed as Batman on his 6th Birthday!) and is now studying performing arts. I guess you never know where it will lead! He would have loved the dragon cape - probably still would!

    1. That's awesome! I still love to dress up, and I'm 30!!


I can't wait to hear from you!
