Hello my friends!
I have been almost giddy to share today's tutorial with you. Recently, I participated in a craft challenge from Scribble Shop. At the Scribble Shop, you can find 75,000+ crafting supplies. I was sent a mysterious box full of very random supplies and asked to create my own project--using every possible supply! (Think "Iron Chef" for the crafting world!) This was a fun challenge that forced me to be creative!
So here is what I came up with:
I just love making projects for Little Man! Since we saw The Muppets movie 3 months ago, Little Man has become obsessed with Kermit the Frog. He tells me almost every day, "Mom, my name is still Kermit the Frog." At our house, we do a lot of hopping. We watch Kermit the Frog on You Tube. We dye our fingers green. We wear Kermit the Frog t-shirts.
You might remember these themed I-Spy bags I made a while back. For a while now, I have wanted to make color-themed I-Spy Bags. I realize that the season of green is over, but it is Little Man's favorite. And what better shape for a green I-Spy bag than Kermit the Frog?!
Anticipation was high when my box finally arrived and I ripped it open! In fact, I made a video when I opened up the box! You can check it out here on YouTube. Please be kind. This was my very first video! Trying to tape, open up a box, and talk to Little Man was a balancing act!
Here are the supplies that Scribble Shop sent me as well as the supplies I used from my own craft stash:
Scribble Shop Supplies
Ferrero Rocher Truffles
Supplies on hand
Poly pellets or rice
Small wood/chipboard sign (I used a shamrock)
Ribbon (like this one)
Spare buttons, foam stickers, or other knick-knacks
Let's get started!
1 - First, using a rough outline that I made, I cut out 2 Kermit heads (front and back) from green felt.
2 - I took one of those shapes to create Kermit's face. I cut out a very wide mouth by folding the shape in half. This would be the window of the I-Spy bag.
3 - I cut out large eyes from white felt.
4 - I cut out eyeballs and the mouth from black felt and sewed all of that together to create Kermit's face.
