Oh my, what a lazy summer I've been having. Hardly any making has been done around these parts, unless you count messes. I blame it on pregnancy fatigue but now that I'm entering the second trimester my energy level is picking up and I'm starting to feel the urge to sew or crochet something.
My girls are taking part in our local library's summer reading program. They earn 'library bucks' (which are used to buy prizes) by reading books and doing book-themed projects. The Donut Chef was one of the books on their list and after reading it, the girls really wanted to make donuts to take back to the librarian. Well, being that I'm no donut chef (I'd much rather buy donuts that make them) I suggested that we make felt donuts. We used Skip to my Lou's tutorial as a guide.
I macine stitched the donuts together and the girls were in charge of stitching on the sprinkles and stuffing the donut. This was my girls' first time sewing and I was pleasantly surprised at how easily stitching came to them.
Sarah stayed focused on stitching correctly all the way around her donut.
While Carlee, my perfectionist, wanted to make sure that her sprinkles stayed completely random just like on a real donut.
They both were very proud of their creations and couldn't wait to show the librarian. They earned 3 library bucks each.
