To the M.I.S.C.R.E.A.N.T.S of the blog world... don't hate me because I'm crafty! Please.
Shortcake sewed this doggy door hanger with minimal help from me (making knots and that stuff). It has a pocket in the front for leaving little notes.
The Professor's history text asked him to make a *model of a Viking ship. Here is his version made out of Sculpey. This was our first "fun with Sculpey " session and I think we might be hooked!
This was my fun craft. What to do with blue jeans that have gone weak in the knees? Make a little bag! I opted to roll the top instead of fringing it and made the handle a little thicker and shorter to fit the girls better. After painting some Showy Primroses (aka Buttercups), the girls have claimed it as their wildflower hunting bag complete with field guides and mini binoculars. I want to add a buttonhole to the top if only to learn how to use that feature on my new sewing machine.*(aside) Have you seen the amazing ( & free) paper craft downloads from Canon. The Professor wants to tackle this project next. Might make an interesting summer project! I am always looking for things to do during those sweltering summer months. I have a feeling this website will be receiving many hits from us come June, July and August!
