Mr & Mrs Potato Head

Mr Potato Head

It has been a crazy last couple weeks!  The Princess was sick and then of course I got it.  So heres a look back at a project that we did one day while she was with me.

I am always looking for things to do with her so I went to my Pinterest Page to find a project.  I had pinned this project awhile back from  and Jacee was excited to do it.  

Jocelyn had great instructions!  The only thing I did differently was I didn't double up on the felt pieces like she did and sew them together.  Instead I just cut out single pieces without sewing.  Also, we added a few extra pieces ourselves (like goofy teeth, hair, extra purses & a cowboy hat).

Whenever I do projects Jacee likes to help so since her cutting skill are not good enough to cut felt, I would tell her the piece I needed and had her find it on the pattern sheet.  then, I had her pick out the color she wanted it.  This worked out well.  I could be cutting out the previous one while she was finding and choosing the color for the next one.

This is one of her favorite things to do and a great travel quiet game.

Yay, the day has finally come!  Yesterday I set up my space in a local resale store called Tille's Attic.  It is located in Mesa at 1941 W Guadalupe Rd.  My little space is #59.  Please Go, Shop, Buy!  Make sure you check it out frequently because the styles and items will change. 

Don't you just love my little sign for the space!  That was a gift for my birthday from my creative daughter Ashlee.  Go check out her creative ideas on her blog
