Homemade Handicrafts


Each Saturday I spend two very precious hours with my older twin daughters.  They have me all to themselves and I have them all to myself.  We guard this time very protectively and have tried to make it as special as possible.  First we walk, always hand in hand, three abreast, to the local charity shop in our village.  We LOVE charity shopping.  There are always bargains to be had, and you’re helping the charity at the same time.  It’s a win win situation!  We then pop to the video shop for the girls to choose a dvd for our family video night and off we go home.  Once home we settle in to a tea, snack and our sewing.  Over the past few weeks we have been working on making some Mr Men toys for the little girl’s Easter Adventure Box.  The girls had particularly wanted to make A2 a present for her second birthday, which was at the weekend.  Of course they chose to make the Little Miss Twins!

I cut out some shapes of the Little Miss Twins from yellow felt.  The girls sewed on some eyes and a smile:
