Crafting with Wyatt

Ruh Roh, now what? Not another project to distract my mom from taking me hiking!

Mom saw some super cool pillows with dog pictures. Then, she got all interested in how to print photos and images on fabric. So she looked it up online.
Then, she bought some fabric that will go through the inkjet printer.....

...and she printed out some pictures of me and Stanzie right on the fabric.
Now, mom wants to make pillows and tote bags with Wyatt and Stanzie fabric!

Only problem forgot how to sew....BOL!
Seems it has been 8th grade home economics class...ha-ha! Mom doesn't even own a sewing machine.

It turns out, that 'Christmas Tree Grandma', is the real crafty one in the family and has lots of sewing machines. So, she gave this one to mom, with the instructions that it can never be returned!

It's a 1957 Singer and still runs like a top. In fact, it is the one that mom used for her Home Economic's projects a few years back...Ba wah ha ha!

 Now, we have to read the instructions and figure out how this thing works again. Mom hopes it is like riding a bike....I got my paws crossed for her...hee hee.

Don't wait up to see any finished projects...this might take awhile :D

Happy Crafting!

P.S. If you are curious what that springy thing is in the is the fold up Murphy Bed in the guest room (now the sewing room). Poor Stanzie, that is where she likes to sleep like a princess. She just got kicked out of her own room!


  1. Oh man, getting kicked out of your bed so that your Momma can make some pillows with your face on it. The irony!! I really like this idea, and I bet they are going to look amazing when you are done!!

  2. Wow! What a cool idea Wyatt. The Mama never would have thought of that. We can't wait to see the finished product.

  3. Looks like a fun project! Sewing is a lot like bike riding, so hopefully she has no problems getting it all set up and going. The worst part is getting that darn bobbin into the machine right!

  4. How sweet that you Mom wants to rest her head on an image of you when she goes to bed at night.
    I was going to offer to send over Gail's sewing machine, still undisturbed in the box in which it was packed when she moved up here from London 13 years ago....
    Toodle pip!

  5. What fun, you have such a cool momma! She will figure out that sewing deal,one tricky part: if the bottom stitches are too loose check the tension. Can't wait to see the finished project. You'll be out hiking soon!

  6. We are expecting to see a QUILT of Airedales.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella &Roxy

    SHE tried to give away HER sewing machine, but it came back!!

  7. Hey Wyatt!
    Wow, any project with you and Stanzie on it will be sooooo worth the wait! I think these will be wonderful items and I'm sure your mom will work this out. BOL
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  8. That looks like the machine I learned to sew on when I was a wee lass. Good luck with the projects. If you need some long distance assistance give me a holler.


  9. Hurry! We can't wait to see the finished pillows!

  10. Wyatt, you mom has a murphy bed????? How cool is that????

    I like her crafty idea, and her 1957 sewing machine. My mom is sending good vibes...she just started sewing last year and has a like / hate relationship. BOL!

    We like the vision of the toy graveyard in your pond...kinda like the toy titanic. BOl!

  11. What a great idea! We can't wait to see the finished products. Mom has an old Singer like that but hers might be even older. BOL

    Woos- Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  12. Don't you just pump a peddle on the floor to make it go? BOL. Waiting to see the pillows.

  13. Yup, your mom has her work cut out for her, so to speak. After you and Stanzie wipe your beards on the pillows and they have to be washed, let us know how the printing holds up!

  14. Everyone is going to see the tote and want one!

    Stop on by for a visit

  15. Wyatt, we think you need to snoopervise this project just like you do all the other projects around your house! We can't wait to see what the finished products look like.

    And how dare Mom fold up Stanzie's princess bed! What was she thinking!?!? ;-)

    Elyse and Riley

  16. Oh dear, poor Stanzie.

    Anyway, good luck Wyatt Mom! My mom also has her own antique sewing machine. It was from her Grandma and now she's passed it to my sister.

    I can sew to patch things up and sew some stuff but not so perfectly.

    We can't wait to see those new crafts.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  17. how awesome! your momma is talented!


  18. How super cool! I really need to learn how to sew, and then get a machine!

  19. Aww poor Stanzie. We hope she has another bed.
    What a great project. Can't wait to see the finished do realise sewing machines all over blog land will be being unearthed now!lol
    Happy crafting

  21. I luvs when my Momma sews... fer me! She should always sew only fer me... bol!

  22. Woof!
    My hooman has the same prob.
    Now I wonder when we're going to see some pillows and bags with your face on it?

  23. Wow!! Those are clever and cool! I love all those designs!

  24. What a great idea. look forward to seeing them. have a fun week! Ros and Oscar

  25. Howdy Wyatt and Stanzie, looks like a great idea. Can't wait to see what your mum designs. Our mum can't sew to save herself. She feels pretty chuffed if she manages to sew a button back on hehe. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  26. Well, this is just fantastic. I can't wait to see the finished product. Wyatt, you and Stanzie will make adorable pillows.

  27. Hee hee hee! Mom says just after she and Dad got married, Grandma talked her into taking a quilting class with her. Dad's Great Grandma had a 1940s sewing machine she lent to Mom and it caught on fire one night while she was sewing. She ended up getting her own sewing machine for Christmas!

    It's funny, our Mom is working on some pillows right now, too. We'll have to see how they turn out.

    Oh, and we are all official for the Idita Walk! Now to start logging our minutes come Wednesday!
