It started with Counting Fish that I first saw on the blog Counting Coconuts. My neighbor and I churned them out in about two nap times. They have buttons on the front and the corresponding numerical value stitched into the back. They also have washers in thier noses so the boys can use a magnetic fishing rod to catch them! Then, with the leftovers, we made some sea creature magnets for the refrigerator (jelly fish, sea horse, starfish, Nemo, angelfish and other tropical fish) and they turned out great! Felt is super easy to work with, even with beginner skills like mine. Here's a sneak peak at my newest project. I'm almost done with the cutting process and just need to work on the time consuming sewing/embellishing process. Can't wait to show you how it turns out!!
I am a stay-at-home-mom on a mission to raise my kids with a purpose. My desire is that my kids will look back on their childhood with fond memories of their time at home and as a part of our family - and my hope is that you have that same desire.
This blog will be a catalog of ideas (some original, some merely recorded from other resources) to use for every stage of parenting. Ideally, I would love for you to contribute your ideas too, so we can all benefit from the online community of moms - the mother 'hood, if you will!
