    Hi! My dad’s birthday is coming up this month, and I’m not sure what to do. I know I want to make him something, but I don’t know exactly what. I am not very advanced at sewing, but I do my best. If you don’t mind, could you give me a few ideas? Thanks.

    I loved the hats and pumpkins that you made. They so inspired me. My local AC Moore had the booklets with the cutest halloween things from Make it Fun. This is a picture of the little girl ghost my girls and I whipped up. We had everything at the house to make it. It was so much fun. I posted a picture of the ghost on with some yummy Pumpkin Gobs with Maple Cream Filling. So yummy and cute with the little girl ghost.

    Great show! Kris’ technique would be a great way to make the Mad Hatters hat (Alice in wonderland)!
    And Kim. Well I know that I’d definately go crazy with the glitter!
    P.S: I’m not an adult. I’m only 11!
