On a slow Sunday afternoon, I decided to pull up this tutorial and have the girls help me out with making themselves some snakes.  They had a blast choosing the fabrics and sitting on my lap while we sewed them up.  And we’ve all had fun playing with them since.

Great project to do with your little ones, and definitely fast.  And I had ALL the supplies on hand!  That was the best news of all!

The only difference with my snakes from the tutorial was that I used animal eyes I had around instead of buttons or embroidery.

The snakes are going to get you!

And then when the snakes get you, you can just stick their tongues up your nose. Because, apparently, that’s what one does with snakes.

  1. How cute….snake and little girl!!!!!! I’m going to check out the tutorial and make one with my little girl. Thanks for a childrens project I think they’re a great idea for getting them off those games consoles and away from the goggle box (commonly known as a tv!).

  2. So cute! Abby would LOVE those, too bad I do not sew. 😦
