Yesterday I told you about the blog carnival called We Heart Art… Check it out at Domestically Challenged, 3baybchicks, and I Am Living Proof God Has A Sense Of Humor. Blog about your art or your kids’ art. I promised to showcase some of my craftiness… Here we go…

This week Arleigh was in a musical at school. She was a zebra. I was supposed to make stripes on a shirt or find some other black and white clothes for her to wear as a zebra. Have I mentioned that I don’t sew? This is my art… my no sew outfit I made for her. I even made Hanan a vest in the leftover fabric. I was pretty proud of myself considering I had no pattern and I don’t even sew my buttons back on.

No need to give you a tutorial. It’s cut from fabric and then the sides were glued together. I cut the front to make the vest cut out the neck. For a new sew project, I think it turned out okay. The skirt is just a wrap skirt I made pretty quickly with pins. Top it off with a zebra bow and I promise she was the cutest girl on that stage. I was going to say zebra, but she beat out the monkeys, elephants, lions and jungle guides too.

I did paint a butterfly and a lady bug for the girls’ bathroom but I passed them on to someone else when they started to outgrow the theme, or maybe I did…either way.

I’m also going to make a shameless plug for art since I’m linking up with you guys. I have a very, very talented friend who is also very sweet. She is starting a new website filled with art, and handmade jewelry. If you have a little girl or know someone who does, you will love this! I have already placed an order. Stop what you are doing in the name of art and visit Simply Shanan. I promise you’ll love it.
