Yesterday I was able to finish up some little Trick-or-treat bags for the kiddos. I used this orange polyester material that I got in a grab bag of fabric at a thrift store. What else could I possibly use it for but this?
The letters are their initials, and the handles are black webbing. I'm happy that they'll be able to be folded up and take up less space in our storage closet when Halloween is over.
Also yesterday, Princess and I finished up her Viking Longboat. We are learning about the Vikings right now, and she really wanted to make this. We used construction paper, glue, a couple of popsicle sticks, and lots and lots of tape! :) She made some of the shields white and some (on the other side) red because white shields meant peace and red meant war. (So she says, I can't keep up with her!).
The viking boat then took Strawberry Shortcake on a journey. My kids have this ability to predict when I'm ready to 'weed' their toys. She hasn't played with this doll for a long time, and I was just thinking that maybe it was time to let her go. Of course she picks now to start playing with her again!
