A Fun Kid's Craft

Happy Friday to you. Can you believe it is already March?! The week has been good but busy, I've been reorganizing my sewing room and it feels good. I am not done yet, but hope to get it finished by this morning. In order to do this, I needed more plastic bins for fabric and had to take all my fabric out, cut some pieces to square them up and iron them before placing them in the bins. Oh boy, what a job; I also weeded out fabric that I have no use for-I will give it to friends or donate it. Last night I was invited to a craft night, free of charge, for adults at our local library. Trust me when I say I don't need any more crafts-love to do them, but been there and don't need to go back. However, two neighbors were going so I went; it was a fun evening out and the crafts are cute. I am giving them to both families and granddaughters today-like I said I just don't need more things. Both of these crafts would be so fun to make with children or grandchildren. The first one was simply a large plastic egg-I think the supplies came from the dollar store. We added in spanish moss, rocks, plastic eggs and silk flowers. Close it up and tie a ribbon around it.

This is the craft I preferred, the supplies were a small wreath and you wrap burlap around it-bad idea for me, because I'm allergic to burlap. Then add some green yarn, silk flowers and a butterfly. Use a ribbon to hang it up.
This afternoon I have a tea with both daughters and their girls-should  be lots of fun.
I hope you have a great day and wonderful weekend!
Joy to you!


  1. Noreen, Those would be cute crafts to make with kids. I like to look at burlap, but really do not like to touch it. LOL. Blessings to you for a fun weekend, xoxo,Susie

  2. Those crafts are really cute. Have a blessed weekend.

  3. Both of these crafts are super cute. But I sure know what you mean..I did do many crafts in the past but I just really don't do much anymore. Sewing takes up my time and all of my available space. I really, really REALLY need to organize my fabric and go through it all and get rid of some too, but I can just never bear to take the time it would take. Enjoy your week-end and tea sweet friend!

  4. Those are both cute project, Noreen. Glad you have those sweet little visitors to 'play with'. Have a great weekend- xo Diana

  5. Cute crafts! I don't know if I'm allergic to burlap or not...I don't like to work with it at all. Your quilting is so beautiful and I can imagine that it is more fulfilling.

    Hope your weather becomes more spring like. We've had nice temps but oh, so much wind! A lot of rain is forecast for next week.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  6. Beautiful crafts! We heard today that somebody put those glow sticks in the eggs that they hid and the kids loved finding them in the early morning!

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

  7. Cute crafts ! Spring like weather for us as of Sunday all through the week I can handle that . Thanks for sharing hope you enjoyed your tea with the girls . Have a good weekend !

  8. It is such a temptation to delve into other crafts, but quilting already consumes so much space and budget that I don't dare. I hope you share pictures of your sewing area once you finish with the reorganization.

  9. I love both the craft ideas. The wreath is lovely, proving once again that simple can often be better. Hope it's a good weekend for you.
