Crafting with Courtney

Gosh, it's been awhile since I've done a "Crafting with Courtney" post. I guess we just haven't done a lot of crafting lately! We always manage to keep busy when she's here on Tuesdays, though, and of course our time is limited, since it's only for a while after she gets off the school bus.

Well, we did a craft project yesterday. A couple days ago, I came across this cute little tutorial here for making a tissue pouch for/with a child. Courtney chose the colors and helped with some of the cutting, etc. Here's how ours turned out:

She just happened to have brought along a little container with some sequins and other things in it, which gave her the idea of adding them to the eyes and nose. I think it was a great idea! Here you can see them a little better:

The glue wasn't dry yet, so you can see where some of it was, but hopefully it dried clear after she got it home.

Of course the tissue comes out of the kitty's mouth. :)

It was a fun project, and quick, and it filled the bill for a "Grandma, can we do a craft project?". Plus it may even be useful to keep tissues in good shape in Courtney's bookbag. Win, win!
