Craft Party: Doll Clothes

Somehow I missed posting these! The girls had a great time creating a wardrobe for their dolls. It took  lot of patience and determination to see the projects through to completion - these real clothes have to be worn after all! So fun to play fashion designer and dress up!

What I found while cleaning up: a happy face pin cushion

Take Your Monster and Stuff It

Awesome afternoon making creatures sprung live from the imagination of two cool boys who snipped and imagined, arranged and re-arranged, drew and painted, glued and sewed until they had stuffed their own monsters.  Then they carried them off on their scooters to scare off the things that go bump in the night. Sewing is freedom of expression and its not just for girls.
