It snowed yesterday. It was a pretty good snow storm and the snow was great for snowball fights or snowman building-- not so great for driving to work.
Here is our snowman. It was a blast to make, because the snow was sooooooo good! The only problem is we had a hard time getting the middle ball up it was very heavy-- so we used a wheel barrow which helped, but I think the neighbors thought we were crazy as we were the only ones outside and we were using a wheel barrow !!! Who uses a wheel barrow to put their snowman together? Tonight we will be putting on the face and arms.
A request was made to make Halloween trick or treat bags... so as requested this is what we have. My oldest helped cut them out and do the felt applique. She is becoming pretty good help, but she is too much like her mother... no patience at all and wants everything done right now!!!!
The kids love the bags-- and they were simple to make..... I have several tutorials that I had printed out on making totes... I ended up using a modified version of this one from cluck cluck sew. We skipped the paper adhesive since we did not need the extra stabilization with the felt and just sprayed the felt with spray adhesive (it worked fabulously) and I will be using the spray adhesive more often-- less work!!! and faster!!!!
