moday made it make-up

I missed last week's Monday Made It! I could share what I was "making" all last weekend but you might be bored to tears (my action research presentation!). I did get a lot made this week for my classroom- although it is a mess now.

BTW, I am currently in Pensacola (hopefully on the beach or shopping!) while your reading this! When I get home I will have gobs of pictures of vaca and my classroom (hopefully in a non-flooded state!).
Here are a few things I made this past week:

My mini-pocket chart hanger. This was super easy (since I got the boys at Home Depot to cut everything). All I really did was stick the pieces together and spray paint. Ta-Da! Want to do this? Click here for the pin to the  amazingly simple directions. 

This is my lone window in my classroom. It is actually a door with a window in it. I made a faux-roman shade like curtain to cover it up. No sewing, just some stitch witchery, velcro dots, tension rods and fabric. I love the fabric! 

I made these plain chair pockets a couple years ago (I say I but actually, my mom made them for me! She is a genius at sewing!) I added the mustaches with some heat n' bond! Love them! I have different colors so I can make my tables by color. 

And, not for the classroom:

These onesies were for a girl at the hubs work. Wish I had been this crafty when Addie Mae was born! 
That's about it for now!


  1. I wish I had cute chair covers like that! Your curtain came out great - especially considering no sewing - right up my alley.

  3. Such cute projects! I LOVE the chart idea. Thanks for sharing.


  4. I love the idea of a faux roman shade. Funny timing, I also made onesies this week.
    Enjoy your trip!


  5. I am in LOVE with your chair covers! That would be so handy to have, and organized! Super cute things this week. Hope you are loving the beach! I really want to get down there before my summer is over!

    Reaching for the TOP!

  6. I love your roman shade! It lets some light in, but not so much that it's overwhelming.
