Felt Fun with the Cuter Book

I bought this book last week for my teenage daughter.
She just LOVES it and has made many of the cute little animals.My 12 and 10 year old daughters saw how easy they were to make and they started making them too.
They traced the patterns out of the book onto tracing paper,then used the patterns to cut out the felt.The animals are little,about 2 inches,and are very easy to hand sew and stuff with batting.

Some of the faces are embroidery.The book has very good simple instructions.
Some of the faces are just glued on with craft glue.
We bought googly eyes for some of them.

Some are a little scary! :)

My girls have had hours of fun together.

MyOwnPet Balloon and Canines for Disabled Kids

I was asked to share about these cute balloon pets,called MyOwnPet Balloon.I went and looked at the website and they even have a Reindeer just in time for Christmas. I know my own children love to play with balloons and Mylar balloons last for weeks and weeks.There are several different animals to choose from.One of my favorite,it's hard to choose a favorite,is the Poodle  .Which one is your favorite?When they start to deflate you can have them re-filled.
 What a great cause to help too. $5 from every purchase goes to Canines for Disabled Kids, a non-profit organization,helping children with disabilities gain independence and participate more fully in society.
