Today I am excited to introduce you to my real-life cousin, Amber from Crazy Little Projects! She is the cutest. You are going to love her. She is all about the kids and the bright colors, just like me. She’s awesome.
This is Amber and her cute family. I am so lucky to be related to them! Read all about her here.
Amber is a seamstress extraordinaire. She did an amazing series in January called Learn to Sew. It includes a series of seven lessons on sewing, with a project tutorial designed to accompany each lesson. The lessons cover the following topics: Sewing a Straight Line, Sewing a Zig Zag Stitch, Top Stitching, Inserting Elastic, Sewing Ruffles, Sewing in a Zipper, and How to Make a Buttonhole. I happen to know that a Learn to Sew Series Part II project is in the works, so check this out now so you will be ready!
I can’t forget to mention Amber’s Hooded Towels! Aren’t they darling?! She reveals a new hooded towel pattern each month, so be sure to watch for them! My favorites are the floopy eared bunny (which she sent my daughter as a gift) and Minnie Mouse (which I need to MAKE for my daughter). Check out her entire collection!
One of my favorite things that Amber does on her blog is a new series called Crazy Little Kid Projects. Her son is hyper-creative like her (the scary looking Jedi up there), and one day he accompanied her to Hobby Lobby. He was talking about all of the projects he would make with the supplies he was spotting and the idea popped into her head: tutorials for kids by kids. And the rest is history! In fact, your kid can even do one! Each Thursday she has a Crazy Little Kid Tutorial, but she only has three sons old enough to do them, so the fourth week can be filled by your kid, and they will even make $20! Check out the detail on her site.
Last but not least, check out Amber’s recipes! She loves to bake and is very, very good at it! These two recipes happen to be two of our family’s favorite traditional recipes, Mom’s Famous Orange Rolls (although I’ve always called them Granny’s Orange Rolls) and Chocolate Peppermint Creme Cookies (which I always call the Aunt Jackie Birthday Cookies since her mom always makes them for me for my birthday). YUM!
Go have fun on Amber’s site! With all of the colors and kid-friendly projects it is impossible not to!
