May the Force Be with You

When I found out I was having a boy, I was happy that I would not have to deal with teenage girl drama or pay for a wedding.  But, being the crafty lady that I am, I was disappointed that I would not get to make all those adorable dresses, dolls, etc out there in crafty land for my baby. The world of craft is definitely dominated by things for girls. There are so many different accessories and types of clothes that girls can wear. The possibilities really are endless. As a result, boys tend to get overlooked. That's why a couple of my favorite blogs decided to create a series called "Celebrate the BOY."

Dana of MADE and Rae of Made by Rae are a couple of amazing crafting mamas who also have boys. To help remedy the lack of crafty boy stuff out there, they have collaborated to round up some great projects for the BOY. I'm loving it.

Since February's all about the BOY, I whipped up a little something for my little man. I bought some rockin' awesome Star Wars undies from Wal-Mart for V last month. They were briefs, and he's really more of a boxer guy, so they've just been sitting around the house. Last night, I got inspired and got to work. The result:

an awesome Darth Vader onesie!

His daddy was quite pleased. :)

In other news, for Valentines Day, V got me a serger! I am so excited about all the potential things I can make now. Thanks to "Celebrate the BOY," I've also got lots of great ideas. What have you made for your boy?
