Kermit the Frog I-Spy Bag {Scribble Shop Challenge}

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

Glitter brads

Martha Stewart glitter

Chalkboard paint

Feathers

Blue and green fabric squares

Green roving

Ferrero Rocher Truffles

Supplies on hand

Felt (green, white, and black)

Poly pellets or rice

Small wood/chipboard sign (I used a shamrock)

Ribbon (like this one)

Green acrylic paint

Green thread

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.
