A friend celebrated a birthday a few weeks ago. She is a swimmer and I wanted to make her something that would be useful for her!

I started thinking about making her a bag out of t-shirts that she could toss her wet swimming gear in, and then she could just toss the bag into the washing machine and clean it!

This is what I came up with! It actually came out very spacious and was super easy to put together!

Check it Out!!!

 
 
A few weeks ago I was enlisted by a friend to assist with a puppet workshop for elementary and middleschool students. I knew I wanted to do brown paper bag puppets as one option; they are easy and demonstrate that anything can become a puppet and a puppet can be made from anything.

But I wanted to have a second option for the older kids who may have already had experience with the brown paper bag puppets. I still wanted it to be easy and I still wanted it to showcase that puppets can be anything so I came up with this little guy:

The Clothes Pin Puppet!

Isn't he cute? And he was super easy to make! Take a look at my how-to in the techniques section. It's a great idea for moms and babysitters on rainy days, and also for teachers. Speaking of teachers, I am thinking of starting an education page for my blog which will demonstrate ways to use certain how-tos in lesson plans. What do you think?
