Braided Belts and an 8-year-old makes her own Felt Kitty

A friend came into the shop and was complaining that he had no belt to hold up his shorts so I grabbed some fabric scrap, braided it together, and made him an old fashioned rope belt like from the Beverly Hillbillies...only more colorful and way cooler. Loved it so much I had to make one for myself. Now we can't stop playing with the color combinations of all those scraps that were too small to make much of anything else. We're selling a few in the store in case anyone else stops by and finds they love them as much as we do.
Also this past week we had an awesome 8-year old visiting from Minnesota and she so confidently made her own plush kitty with felt and we wanted to share how amazing even the youngest crafters are. We are so blessed to have such diverse creativity in our shop every day and are thankful for the new friends we make.
