Pompom Puppet Tutorial

Pompom Puppet

Months later and I finally got around to putting together a tutorial for the pompom puppet. This would be a fun project to do with children. Bags of multi-sized pompoms with enough for twelve puppets can be found at craft stores for under five dollars. You can use a glove instead of sticks for controls. During the winter season you can find a pair of gloves (makes 2) for a dollar at a variety of stores. The tutorial as a pdf can be found here.

Little Red Riding Hood

Little Red Riding Hood Too

My Little Red Riding Hood

Even though a health issue has been interfering with life and has kept me from posting as often as I'd like, I have been creating some fun things. Here are two different versions of Little Red Riding Hood. I participated in a swap with the theme of Little Red Riding Hood. I couldn't bear to part with these two.

Cloth Doll-Merry Berry

Merry Berry

Merry Berry-a cute little cloth doll I made just because. This fun easy project turned in to a learning experience. Lesson learned-make your own pattern from the start. I started with a pattern I liked but... Any how I ended up making a lot of changes. Trust me she doesn't look anything like the original pattern. She does stand up on her own two feet, all ten and half inches of her. I really like the way she turned out. And here is a close-up of her face.

Cute Little Dollhouse

Cute Little Dollhouse-front view

Along with the other umpteen ongoing projects in my studio, I've been working on this cute little dollhouse. The basic structure is made from foam core board and illustration board scraps. Both of which originally came from the dollar store. The interior and exterior walls are covered with scrapbook paper.

The windows and doors are also made from scrapbook paper.

The finished size is 6"w x 8.5"h x 4"d. Cute little things are so much fun and very addictive. Watch for pictures of the furniture and occupants.

Teacup Potholders

A set of potholders made from the scraps of the apron. They were a Mother's Day gift for my mom to go with the apron.
