Hello Skip to my Lou readers ~ I’m Mary Beth from Cupcakes and Crinoline and today I am sharing a cute kids craft with you.  You can make this craft for your kids but it would also be a great way to teach them some sewing basics.  As a matter of fact as I was making these my youngest son expressed a desire to learn how to sew so we will be making more of these, plus some other crafts, this summer.

Here are a few of my favorite posts and hopefully you’ll like them as well.  My kids love peanut butter and these peanut butter bars with a fluffy frosting are one of their favorite desserts.  If you have extra t-shirts laying around that the kids have grown out of make them some fun pillowcases in 5 minutes.  Also, here’s an easy DIY bird feeder to make with the kids ~ mine had so much fun watching the birds eat from their feeders and they look forward to making them every year.
