Today I have a book I dragged out from my art shelves. I keep thinking that I want to do some of these crafts just for me. But for me or not, there are some rather neat crafts in this book for you and yours.
Check out these terry bunnies…. I look at them and think, I know some 4H kids who would love to have these handy bunnies hopping around.
The easy to follow instructions would make them a breeze to make. The steps are lined up easily, and any pattern that needs a template has one provided for them.
The Kitty Doormouse
I thought about sharing this kitty doormouse with my lad. He loves to create things that might intrigue our cats. What do you think? Would it work? The only problem I see is just where would we put it in our house? We already have dangling shoelaces and cat dancers hanging off door knobs… so a big mouse? Um… I dunno….
There are all sorts of fun ideas to peak your interest in gifts kids can make. Some are ever so easy I could make them myself, and others would probably have me saying, hey son…. lend me your fingers for a moment. 🙂 He would then look at the clearly written (visual as well as textual) and help me problem solve my way through it.
Projects that intrigue
Some of the projects intrigue me for the doll making class I want to do like cotton babies and panty hose babies. Other just look fun like the birdies and hobby horse. The decorator basket seems a bit more complicated, but if I could make it I’d feel rather accomplished. 🙂 If I did them well enough, maybe I could even sell them or give them away as cute gifts! Now wouldn’t that be cool! 🙂
Anyways, it’s a neat book, perhaps it’s one that would inspire you as well!
