Bear Monster Hat

Had to whip up a baby gift! Alas, this bear monster hat. The ribbons can be taken off, just in case it's a boy!

Fleece with handsewn felt applique. Whee!

My stained glass class is going well (though I'm not really working with stained glass... I decided on a mirror piece because the glass colors they had didn't really appeal to me). I did a lot of glass grinding yesterday and it was evidently flying EVERYWHERE! I keep finding tiny glass slivers in my hair, even after showering. Not very fun, those suckers are sharp. But my project is coming along nicely :) I think I'll finish early next week. Then I think I'll do the pottery class.

Very cute! I want to do a craft class. So far I haven't been able to find one that wasn't for old people or kids. :(

I have to say; Your blog is just so inspiring and magical!! I am about to start teaching an after school art class, (on top of already being a full time primary school teacher!) and while I myself am always making creative bits and pieces, I was completely at a loss for any ideas to try with my art class kids. Your creativity has instilled in me a new sense of excitement about making arts and crafts with kids and I now feel motivated and strong enough to try out new ideas! I thank you enormously for get the ball rolling again for me!! Keep being you! Melissa @

That hat is way too cute!! I can't wait to see what you are making in your class, that sounds really fun! (well minus the tiny shards in your hair!)
