A woman who works with her hands is a LABORER; a woman who works with her hands and head, a CRAFTSMAN; but a woman who works with her hands, her head and her heart is an ARTIST. ~ St. Francis of Assisi

Yarn Buddies

I made these Yarn Buddies with Conner on Good Friday. Conner says Aunt Karen can we do Easter Crafts. And who am I to tell a kid no you cant do Easter crafts? He made paper versions of my yarn versions. It was his idea to make the paper versions first. I wished I took pictures of them before he took them home.
He says he can crumble up a piece of paper and make a chick and I thought I can make a pom pom out of yellow yarn and make a chick.
So I made a Pom Pom. Instructions will follow later on pom pom making.
I free formed cutting out feet and a beak out of orange craft foam. I glued them on and glued on two wiggle eyes.
Then I thought a chick needs a bunny. So I took pink and white yarn and made a larger pom pom for the body and took just pink and made a smaller pom pom for his head. I free formed cut feet and nose. I took scrap black yarn and made whiskers. I took chenille sticks and twisted them into bunny ears. I used a cotton ball to make the tail. And I got some Yarn buddies.
One problem with Yarn buddies. They are made out of Yarn.
Cat stole the chick yarn buddie. I am afriad I didnt get that on video.
A fly got in the house and the cat decided that is much more interesting then an old yarn buddy.

I will add the rest of the pictures tomorrow. It took forever to upload this picture and a picture of clay aiken that I did not want uploaded. Go figure that one. The reason I even saved the clay aiken is because I liked the layout and thought it would be neat for a scrap book page or card.
