Craft studio

Hi,

lately, I had the idea to have a weekly craft studio organized by me and my neighbour for my model (2 years old) and her 3 year old. We alternate in being responsible for preparations. First off, I was hosting and preparing. I bought some T-Shirts and colour and prepared 2 tails and 2 heads. If somebody wants to do something similar: take more time than one evening….

OK, we then painted the hands of the kids black and made imprints on the T-Shirt. The thumb is the neck, the fingers the legs and we added tail and head. The tail was knitted and the head hand-sewn together with felt.

Enjoy!
