When Boredom = Creativity

When a bored teenager gets ahold of a box of felt, a needle and thread:

Monster Backpack

 Monster Wallets

Monster Snail

Loch Ness Monster?
Haven showed me this one just moments before she was about to cut up an old stuffed animal for the stuffing. I rescued the duck from its impending doom and gave Haven polyfil instead! I'm super proud of her because she figured out how to make it 3-D without any kind of pattern. This little guy really makes me smile!

The thing about Haven's sewing that really impresses me is that it's all hand sewn! I tried to get her to use the sewing machine but she sews to fill time, not for the finished product. For a teenager that really impresses me.

She's such a clever girl! Everything is really cute but the snail and the loch ness are my favourites!

Emily has been bugging me for a purse but I didn't want to spend money on one. So I told her we could get out my "make a monster" book and make her a purse. She is really excited about! So cool to click on your blog and Haven made one! I'll have to show Emily. Tell Haven I'm proud of her!
