Last year some time I posted a need for fabric and sewing notions on our neighborhood yahoo group. I asked for anything folks might have left over from other projects. Some things were dropped off on our porch and I was happy. A few weeks later a neighbor contacted me to ask if a retiring teacher friend of hers could drop off a “few” items. I said, “Sure!”. The teacher’s husband arrived with a truck and proceeded to unpack box after box! It was great. I sorted out what we could use in our camps and donated the rest.
Well, this week we finally dove into the boxes of felt and had some fun. It was our annual ‘Gift-making Camp’ and the kids were ready to get to work. While trying to come up with some good ideas I stumbled upon whimsyloft.com and found the “Sock Owl” tutorial. I just showed the kids the picture of the owl and set out the materials and they ran with it!
