cue the beastie boys


I put the buttons on the table and passed out the gloves; the rest was crafty magic. I think I need to invite this kind of creativity, and mess, again. The kids are still talking about it.

{It's Wordless Wednesday, yo.}
Edited to add: Here's directions to two of the patterns, off of the Martha Stewart website.

You are crafty - I was also thinking of "No Sleep Till Brooklyn" but pretty sure you're not traveling.

Super fun idea; totally impressive Mom work.

Crafts! Yeah, they do love it don't they, but can someone invent something that could keep them busy for more than 10 minutes.
Oh, that's right- it's called TV!

Very crafty.

Are you still 'always down'?

Sandy M said...

My daughter saw this on Martha Stewart when she was sick with the flu and fell in love.

I finally made good on my promise and we made them with an extra buddy, another 7 year-old boy.

I cut the gloves for the boys, but the rest, seriously, I had them do themselves. Even when they whined. And they turned out great.

(I did help with the buttons. They were tough.)

Here's a link to the book:

Lexi has since made a panda and a bunny.

Superfun.

Erika said...

That's SOOOOO Awesome. Did Martha say what these were cuz usually she would post the "how-to" on her site, then we wouldnt have to buy the book :) I want to do this!!!! This could be HOURS of fun! Way to go mom, you rock!

Ok Beastie Boys: is it:
"Brass Monkey. That Funky Monkey. Brass Monkey Junky, that funky Monkey." Was it "Me & the boys were drinkin' brass monkey?" :)
