I’m a crafty slacker. I didn’t get to my Finished on Friday project until Sunday. Not only that, but I’m not completely finished! Even worse, I don’t have any pictures!!

Yesterday I tackled the growing number of stuffed “friends” that needed mending. Bears and bunnies were losing their hearts. Easter Bunny and Polar Bear both had holes under their arms. The only one I didn’t get to was poor old Puppy Dog, who is losing his nose again. I’m not sure why his nose wears through so much. Maybe I can get a before and after shot of him this week.

Other than sewing up the stuffed critters, not much crafting has been going on around here. We had a crazy snow storm last week and my daughter has been busy squeezing in every last bit of snow fun before it all melts. Thank goodness the temps will be warming up this week. I’ve got to back to my fused plastic bag project.

I’m surprised how many of you have not heard of fusing plastic grocery bags. Here’s a video from Etsy Labs to tide you over until our snow melts and I can get back to my project.

    Wow interesting!! I have a big box with those plastic bags hanging around. It’s a great activity to do with kids. Thanks, I think I’ll try this idea :)
