Shoes, Shoes, Shoes

Well I have certainly neglected writing on this but it is time. I volunteered to make shoes for a friend of my mother's and ended up making 50 pairs. They were a lot more time consuming than I thought and I had my friend Renee and her daughter Elizabeth helping me. It was a challenge but felt good to get it done. Now I have no fear of making doll shoes although mostly I have been making paperdolls instead of cloth.

Now its on to bible school crafts. For the younger ages I am doing prepackaged crafts but wanted to do something different with the middle school age children so one of the projects will be memory bible verse books out of brown paper lunch bags. Here are pics. You make the books out of stacks of paper lunch bags that you sew down the middle. The open ends of the bags give you pockets which i put tags with bible verses on. You can pull them out and read them. YOu can cover the pages in card stock and you can't tell that they are made from bags. I think the kids will have fun making them!! My next project I hope is a paper doll in a cigar box but probably not til bible school is over!!
