Hi Guys, yall are in for a real treat today! My friend Courtney from A Little Glass Box emailed me a few weeks ago and had the great idea to work together on a little Kids DIY project. We each made a fun craft and thought we would share both on both of our blogs. I instantly fell in love with Courtney’s blog a long time ago when she posted pictures of her home. She is such a talented decorator, photographer and has such an eye for design. Her home tours and Tween Girl Bedroom Makeover are some of my favorites! I know you will lover her and you can thank me for the hours and hours you spend checking out her blog :)
On to my kids crafts… The Frozen Fox. My boys love band aids, what kid doesn’t? I’ve seen these little mommy-made ice packs around blogland and thought it would be a great little surprise. Now, when someone gets hit (by their brother) they have a little something to take their mind off of it.
All you need is the Frozen Fox Template, fabric, felt and a button. Click on this picture to enlarge,save and then print it off.
Cut everything out.
Place everything on the front of the fox face. Pin it and sew.
For the ears: pin the inner white part on top of the larger fabric ear and sew. Then get the other large fabric ear and put right sides together. Sew around the two longest sides leaving the bottom open and flip.
Sew a button to the face right where the white cheeks meet.
With the white sides of the ears facing down, place the ears on the face lining up the edges.
Sew around the fox. On the bottom, leave a 2″-3″ opening. Clip the corners and flip right side out.
Pour rice in to the opening at the bottom. I tried both beans and rice… I like the rice better but the beans are a little heavier, and both will work. (husband’s man hands not mine haha)
Hand sew the bottom up to close the fox :)
TaDa! Now you have a very easy mom tool right in your freezer :)
