For the last year a little two year old girl up here in Northern BC has been battling cancer. After only a short time home from treatment down south, it’s decided she needs to have more. The community is coming together to host a fundraiser to help this family during this time. It will be an evening with friends and neighbours, music, sweets and an auction filled with local handmade items. Inspired by our friend, Cam and I decided to put a few things together for the auction. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to attend because we have family coming to visit this weekend.
Cam made two alder cutting boards (14 x 18 x 1.5) and a sitka spruce cutting board (15 x 20 x 3) from lumber he milled himself.
I made a disguise kit for either boys or girls. At least I hope it appeals to either. I suppose it could also work well for adults if anyone is so inclined! You never know who’d be interested in becoming a Master of Disguise! This was really fun to make and I’m excited to share the result! Click any of the pictures to see bigger or more.
Flaming Red Beard. Probably my favourite part of this kit!
Crown and Wand.
Last but not least, the kit, literally speaking. I needed something to hold all this gear. I decided to make a bag based on one Krista gave me a couple years ago. It wasn’t too hard to duplicate (after a quick call to a friend before the stitches went in!).
I’m so happy with how it all turned out. The disguise piece options are endless but I was working on a dwindling supply of wool felt, fabric and time. All the pieces are lined to make them a touch softer to wear and I used ribbon for ties. I hope that someone enjoys this disguise kit as much as I did making it.
In honour of Wren and her family.
