HI. This is CALVIN. This is a butterfly. I made this for my first ever friend Caroline because she had a butterfly party. First, I drew it. And then I drew it on fabric. Then I cut it out. Then I sewed it. Then I put the patches on. Then I put the ears on, or whatever they are. Then I put the eyes on. And you probably know how I drew the card. Oh, and I used glue to glue the ears on.
These are our Wilburs. Do you know who WIlbur is? Wilbur is the pig in Charlotte's Web. I made the one on the bottom. First things first, I drew it. Then I drew it on fabric. Then I cut it out. Then I sewed it. And stuffed it. It took a loooooooooot of stuffing to stuff it. Then I sewed the top up.
After that, Ezra wanted one too, so Mama made him one like mine. That's the one on the top. I like the tail better on mine.
This is a cradleboard. I made it with the sewing machine mostly but I forgot how I did it. But it took a loooooooong time. I used fabric, cardboard, string and beads, and more fabric. The beads are for the baby to play with so they don't get bored. Oh, and rope for the shoulder straps.
I made this chainsaw because Mama says I can't use the real one. In this picture, I'm cutting a piece of wood up. I used cardboard, and plastic, and stickers, and duct tape and string. Oh, and I drew on it with wax crayons. I found some of the things in the recycling bin and the rest of it was in the art cabinet, except the plastic soda cap was in Grampie's recycling. You can't see the bead, though, in this picture, but it's right by my foot on the end of the pull - cord. It says ECHO because that's what Grampie's chainsaw says.
That's all I have to say. Goodbye.
