With a few basic craft supplies & some fabric scraps, you can make a toy for your kitties in no time.
Back in December, a friend asked me if I could make some new bedding for her daughter’s American Girl doll for Christmas. I told her that if she gave me the bed, I could make it. This is what her daughter woke up to on Christmas morning.
The world seems like it’s cover with snow. It’s been cold enough that the snow hasn’t melted yet. Don’t get me wrong, I love looking at snow, I just hate the cold. I think I’ve got a good case of cabin fever. There are so many things that I want to do outside.
Instead of fighting it, I decided to go with it. This week, I’ve created a Winter White Tablescape.
Back in December of 2013, I posted a tutorial about how to make a fabric stiffened angel. This is still my top pin on Pinterest. To see the tutorial, go here.

These are so easy to make, and very inexpensive, especially now that there are after Christmas sales going on. And the best part is that they can be customized for any sports team!
Here’s what I came up with:
