Overdue Readers' Feature

I never know when I've REALLY had a good idea until later when I start seeing which ones were good enough that you all use the ideas to make your own.  It really makes my day when I see all your projects, so I just had to show them off a bit. 
It's been a while since I posted my free pattern for a T-shirt dress, so I was really surprise and WOWed when I saw these three that Naomi from Work Your Mommy Magic whipped up for her daughter...and I thought the reason she needed to make them was really cute...but you'll have to click over to her blog to see that.
This is making me want to make a few more of these for my girls, now that the summer is getting warmer.
It was such a nice surprise to be browsing through Emily's blog at More from the Moore Family and see this post about the Valentine shirts she made her boys.

And as long as I'm on the subject of freezer paper stencilling.  My friend Leah at 1 Mommy Many Blessings made up her own pattern and made this cute shirt from the freezer paper tutorial.

Then as I was taking a peak at my blog traffic, I noticed people clicking over from Be Crafty, Be Creative, Be Cute.  I clicked over thinking I'd see one of my projects featured...but WOW!  Instead I saw that she'd actually made these herself! 
She made these in less than a week after I posted the tutorial for the Front-Facing Shelves.  I'm seriously impressed and I love the little Dr. Seuss quote, she added. 

And you know it made me smile when I saw these pop up on The Rabens Family on Pi-Day.  (Tutorial for making the Mini-Pudding Pies is here.)

We had a great Pi-Day at our house.  An added little bonus was the email I got from Jen of Which Craft? who celebrated her first Pi-Day after seeing our mini pies.  I love how their pi symbols stand up out of their pies...and that we're spreading nerdiness one family at a time. :)

And I got another little surprise when I saw these shelves on Craft Spotter.

If you've used one of the tutorials from Helping Little Hands, I'd love to see pics!  You can reply to this post...or reply to the post you used...or just send me an email at polly.helping.little.hands (at) gmail (dot) com, so I can include you in my next Readers' Feature.
