a boys week :: no sew cape!

i am so excited for this little feature! i am busying learning the ins and outs of raising this new little boy of mine and i asked some of my friends to chime in with their favorite boy related crafts and activities.

i absolutely adore summer and it is so fun watching how she navigates life with all these boys around her. i will be sure to drop in from time to time with updates to how we are all doing and adjusting, but in the meantime please enjoy these guest posts!
Hey everyone!  My name is Summer and I blog over at the Crosbie Crew.  I'm so excited to be guest posting for Melissa today.

I am a mom of two young boys and what I'm going to be sharing with you takes about 5 minutes.  I know the attention span of a boy so this is pretty fast! (inspiration found here)

Have your boys ever said the following:

Here is your super easy and fast solution:
What you need:

-an old shirt (I used one that was donated and a couple sizes too big)

-felt

-scissors

-glue gun



Directions:


1. Take an old shirt and lay it on the floor with the back facing up.

2. Cut along the sides of the shirt all the way to the sides of the neck.

3. Cut around the neck in the front

4.  You're done!  This is what it will look like.

Then you can embellish it any way you like.  I made an H with felt and hot glued it on.   Go Super Hudson!
I hope you enjoyed this and make one for your little guy!

-Summer
