It has become crafting week at my house. Therefore I haven't found time to do the typical weekly blogs so I thought I would give an update from an item on last weeks Treasure Trove Tuesday.
I really wanted to buy one of these:

So I made this:
There are plenty of mistakes because I just didn't take the time to make it perfect. But, the tutorial above is great and you can make it in under 2 hours.
Things I would have done different:

- Made one handle like in the original rather than two
- If it had been for a holiday I actually enjoy I would have done the hand stitching around the edges like in the original.
What more do I need?
I am planning to make mini versions for his classmates so I can hand out our churches Halloween Tailgate Party information. Hopefully, they will want to come.
