On Saturdays, sometimes we head down to the art museum for Doodles. Art supplies are freely available, along with help from artists, to help you make the “art of the month.” This month we were weaving.
Felted wool, crude diy-cardboard looms, and lots of scrap materials were wrapped and tucked and woven around. We added bells to ours.
Next, we pulled off the “weaving” and cut a piece of felt for the back, and using embroidery thread, began to stitch the felt to the weaving…
leaving a little hole in the back to add stuffing.
We stuffed it, and created a face.
Then we hung it on the door for Rosie to ring whenever she wants to go out…
which she hasn’t quite figured out yet.
