Michael Ann of Michael Ann Made shared with us this cute little bunny felt craft. This could be a fun craft to do with your kids who want to learn to sew by enlarging the pattern a few percent on a copy machine, and using yarn and a yarn sewing needle to stitch it together. The full tutorial and pattern can be found here.

This craft requires adult’s supervision as the use of needle is needed.

Thank you Michael Ann for this lovely sharing.

A Crafty-Crafted Friend’s submission of lovely potato stamp art 🙂

Milton of Our Little Corners is such a cool brother. He does art and craft with his younger siblings. Today, he’s sharing their potato stamp fun art 🙂

Milton used potato, water color, knife and bond paper for this fun art.

Milton’s instruction 🙂

– Get a potato and cut it into half ( with pencil or any pointed material like a small knife)

– Outline your design into the raw surface.

– You can start of with some simple designs like a star, a fish or even a clover leaf.

– Using a small knife, cut around the outline of the design to a depth of 1/4 inch and then cut the background of the shape it self.

– For colors, you can use water colors , which you can mix with a little water.

– Just dip or spread the color with brush and apply it to a suitable surface.

Tadah!

Thank you Milton for spending quality time with your brother doing art projects together. Thank you too for sharing this art work with us 🙂

Teacher’s Day – Time to show our appreciation to the ones who have dedicated their time dedicating our children.

Let’s take a look at what one Crafty-Crafted Friend’s Mommy did for the recent Teacher’s Day celebration.

Here’s what Irene of http://zekerene.blogspot.com did 😀

Teacher's Day Gift

The genius part of her uses the floor tiles as a 'ruler' to measure and cut the material into smaller pieces. See? When crafting, all you need to be is CREATIVE 🙂 No ruler? Improvise. The floor tiles can even act as one! That's totally NEW to me 😀

She got lots of earrings and bracelets from Bali ready

She wrapped them up

And then she made some cards

The beautifully decorated and handwritten cards

Beautifully done 😀

Thank you Irene for the wonderful idea 🙂

A Crafty-Crafted Friend's submission of a cool storage box 🙂

Milton of Our Little Corners must have eaten ‘millions’ of popsicles for this project 😀 You may use craft sticks instead if you can’t get yourself to digest a million popsicles 😛

I’ll let the pictures do all the ‘talking’ here as he has definitely put in a lot of effort in this project! Words just can’t describe them 😀

So lovely, I likey 😀

Thank you Milton 🙂
