Fun Craft!!

Cute huh??? This weekend was Institute with the Georgia Federation of Women's Clubs and the Sunday morning brunch theme was denim and pearls. These were the centerpieces! The girl that made them found toddler jeans at the thrift stores and used Plaid Stiffy Stuff, then formed them. Some were bent, some wiggly like toddlers, some just straight like the one in the picture. I think these would make a GREAT baby shower thing ~ using a cloth diaper. The possibilities are endless.

You can get Plaid Stiffy at most craft stores, some Walmart stores, and online. Just one little hint ~ DO NOT google stiffy stuff.
If you do make something fun, share it with me!!!
Have fun, Bitsy

Here's a brief description of Summer Promise:"Fourteen-year-old Christy Miller has the dream summer ahead of her in sun-kissed California, staying at her aunt and uncle's home. Aunt Marti loves to shop, and those surfers are cute, especially Todd. Christy promised her parents she wouldn't do anything she'd regret later, and some of her beach friends are a little wild. But Todd and his "God-Lover" friends are giving a Christy a new image of all things eternal. Can this summer live up to its promise?"
