I was recently cruising around my local Michael's, looking for some easy craft projects I could do with an injured wrist, and stumbled across the utterly adorable line of American Girl crafts. You may remember the American dolls or book series from when you were younger, (I certainly do.) and they are one and the same. I always loved them for featuring strong, independent girls in their books, and now I'm thrilled to see the franchise moving to support arts and crafts for our young girls. Of course, it helps that the products are SO CUTE!
Naturally, I had to pick up a couple project kits for myself. Here's what I got:
Both kits include everything you need to create one large size and one small size softie, including the needle and a handy needle threader. My only complaint is that the package read for ages 8+, and I completed the owls last night and couldn't imagine the 8 year old with the patience to complete this. However, I think it's a wonderful activity or gift for an older girl, or for those of us who never quite grew up. ^_^
You can check out some of the other fun craft supplies and kits at their website, American Girl Crafts.
