Three days in the house with my sick little guy! We found this fun idea in a Martha Stewart Good Things for Kids Craft booklet (the kind that are available at the grocery store checkout!). My son drew his "creature" on a regular sheet of paper. I then cut around the picture leaving a 1/4 inch seam allowance. He chose his fabric and buttons from my stash & we put the hole thing together! Just needs some stuffing & we are done! Something fun to do on a cold, yucky day!
