Silly Snakes and a Slouch Bag

I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday weekend. I had a 4 day weekend and it was marvelous!!

We went to the zoo on Saturday and the kids fell in love with these huge stuffed snakes. Of course, my first response was "We are not buying those. I can make you a snake." They did not forget my promise. So on Saturday afternoon they helped me make these snakes. They were kind of thrown together, kid stuffed, and designed, which adds to the charm in my opinion. Here are my silly snakes posing with their snakes.

Matching red tongues. Miller was very specific about how he wanted his snake eyes. He said they had to be touching. Who knows why?

I also made this bag for Mom. I used the same pattern that I used here. My mom gave me this fabric over a month ago and the pieces have been cut out for about as long. So I decided it was time to finish it up. The fabric was so nice to work with. It is a heavier almost canvas like material so I did not use interfacing. I used an owl from the lining fabric and appliqued it on the outside of the bag.

If you missed it, I posted my Hootie the Owl tutorial on Friday.
Happy Crafty Tuesday everyone.

OMG...I NEEEED that owl fabric! Seriously, do you know where she found it? My bird obsession is quickly encompassing owls thanks to you. I got some really awesome owl material last week, but that! THAT is awesome. And I love the applique.

I also love how you said, "we are not buying that I can make it!" That has become our mantra around here - even Jamie says it to the girls now...."Mama can make that, here we'll take a pictures (with the iphone) so she can figure out how to do it. Both of our phones have all kinds of "projects" on them. BUT I bet they love their snakes so much more because they helped make them, don't they! They are great.
