It's been a while since we've done a blog post, so I'll just go through some of the crafts we've made, even though a few of them are from earlier than Thanksgiving. Oh well.
Just after we moved into our apartment, Peri saw some cool My Little Pony fleece at JoAnn's and wouldn't leave the store without it. We got enough for her to make a pillowcase, and she adores it. She helped me make it by sitting on my lap and taking out the pins while I sewed. She just loves to watch the sewing machine go, and I'm looking forward to the time when I can teach her to do some actual sewing on the machine!
|In all it's fuzzy glory.|
|The first thing she did was use it as a spring board.|
|With pretty good success.|
|Here she is "enjoying" it on Daddy's office chair.|
|Feathers are cool!|
|However she was only excited to wear it for 2.8 seconds. I guess maybe paper feathers aren't as cool as I once thought they were.|
We also made a pilgrim hat, and she wore it for a while, but considering she has no idea what it is or what it's for, it didn't get much attention after the fist time it fell off her head. She's more interested in getting pictures taken of her than anything at this point.
|Yaaaaay. What is this mom?|
|I think it turned out pretty cool. I'd wear it.|
|Peri mostly enjoyed the eating a sucker while we worked part.|
|If you are wondering what she's doing with the sucker, she's trying to dip it in whatever stray icing she can find on the house. She liked the icing better as dipping sauce than as mortar.|
