Craft Day with Melanie

Melanie and I had so much fun this weekend. We had a craft day and made teddy bears and potato prints.

Mel made 2 velvet bears and I made 2, two sided bears each with a different color fur and face.

We had a ton of fabric, buttons, fabric yo yos and ribbons to choose from.

Emmitt even shared in the fun. He brought us every toy out of his toy box!

Then I showed Mel how to make prints with a few red potatoes, a knife and some cheapy watercolor paints. We cut the potatoes in half, gouged out some shapes, painted them with watercolors and stamped away.

I think they will work as fun embellishments for our altered book workshop that is coming up next week.
