They were fun and simple to make:
- Cut out four triangles of black felt & two smaller triangles of pink felt.
- Match a pink triangle to one black triangle, then sew on the pink triangle.
- Repeat with the other ear.
- Match up the black triangles with a partner. Then sew up the black triangles leaving the bottom open.
- Repeat with other ear.
(We left the bottom open because we thought we might have to put wire in to help them stand up. We did not need it after all.)
- Hand stitch them onto the headband with a whip stitch, using the teeth on the bottom of the headband to help hold them in place.
Now she wants more: orange kitty, brown kitty, white kitty.... oh, meow!
I am so very close to finishing my first leg warmer. Just a few more rows!
I am not a fan of metal needles but could not find size 1 in bamboo or wood. Do they even make wooden needles that small?
Lego building is in overdrive and the castle the little man built has seen some major upgrades. This is a whole post in itself. Hopefully we can share that on Friday. He is so excited about it he asked me to do a photo tour of the castle, and a shot by shot record of a siege.
And we can't forget Halloween!
We did not make new decorations, with the exception of some zombies the kids drew to tape up - it seems we were lacking in zombies, and they had lots of fun decorating the house this week with our box of decorations from past Halloween celebrations. While Halloween is not my favorite holiday, the ghostly ladies above are one of my favorite simple decorations. One of these days I am going to sew a spider web apron to wear for everyday!
Mostly we have been quiet but yesterday we listened to Katie the Witch stories on StoryNory. They have been favorites for years, and not just at Halloween.
Please share what you have been making and the tunes on your playlist. And don't forget to leave a link to your post if you played along so others can visit your Make and Listen posts!
