Mittens, Mittens, Mittens!

Happy winter! It is very cold here, so naturally my thoughts turned to mittens... and hot cocoa. Let's talk about mittens first - here's a great group of all things mitten-ish!
By the way, homemade cocoa is really easy and delicious!

Have a wool sweater that is too worn or outgrown to wear again? Turn it into Mittens, Cut and Sewn from Shrunken Sweaters. It is an easy project to machine or hand sew. Added to Sewing Projects and Recycled Crafts

Walk in the snow with your sweetie and keep warm holding hands with the Lovers' Mitten Added to Knitting Projects

These Crochet Mittens are designed for a women's size small, though you can modify them. They're crocheted in parts and then crocheted together. Great way to use up leftover yarn. Added to Crochet Projects

Ultra-practical, though a bit challenging, Broad Street Mittens, turn into "hobo" gloves when you need to get keys out of your purse, put on chapstick, etc, etc. Added to Knitting Projects

Protect your fingers from hot drinks and keep them extra warm, too when you knit a Coffee Sweater Added to Knitting Projects

Rather stay inside and get some crafts done? Me, too! Cross-stitch these Gingerbread Man Mittens for a sweet gift. I think this chart would also work up nicely in plastic canvas for a Christmas tree ornament or package decoration. Added to Needlecrafts Projects

While you're keeping the homefires burning, enjoy this cute video of Martha Stewart making Monster Mittens with a chatty first-grader who steals the show.
Close the video to view the directions and pattern. Added to Sewing Projects

If your kids always lose their mittens, perhaps they'll hang on to them if you turn them into puppets with these animal and people puppet knitted additions. Added to Knitting Projects

Most little girls will love these Bunny Hat and Paw Mittens. Too precious! Also great for a cold weather Halloween costume. Added to Sewing and Halloween Projects

The inevitable lost mitten can be turned into cute puppets using felt and fabric glue. Added to Kids Crafts and Recycled Crafts

Finally, when it's just too cold to go outside, keep them busy with mitten-themed activities. Added to Kids Crafts Categories: Halloween Crafts, Kids Crafts, Knitting and Crochet, Needlework, Recycled Crafts, Sewing

Homemade Halloween Costumes E-Book Review

Homemade Halloween Costumes Ebook
Growing up, I never wore a store-bought costume. Nor did I wear an elaborately-sewn homemade costume. My strongest Halloween memories are my mom brainstorming a creative costume out of next to nothing. Rarely did my sister and go out trick or treating as the latest trendy character. We were more likely to show up as a television set. My mom's inguenity and creativity had a big impact on who I am. I still love Halloween, and I was tickled by this Halloween Costumes ebook that I found recently.

I've seen many Halloween costumes books. Most have color photos and are sold in the big bookstores. This book is a homemade family affair, like I remember Halloween with my family. It is in pdf format to read or print from your computer. You can download it today. I print the pages that I'll need when I need them.

There aren't many color photos with the costumes, though some have simple diagrams. Some have links to websites to show you the idea. Since you'll be making most of the costumes from items you already have or can easily get, your costume will have its own unique flair. Reading these pages of costumes, I felt like I was listening to my mom and her sisters figure out my costume this year.

There are more than 90 different costumes listed in alphabetical order with a table of contents. They range from people to characters to objects, to plays on words and animals and occupations and more. Just read the table of contents to your kids and you'll be on your way to a happy Halloween.

The costumes are very child-friendly and safe. Many are based on a sweatshirt and pants or leggings. They use simple supplies like posterboard, cardboard boxes, and basic craft supplies like paint, pom-poms, and pipe cleaners. One high-tech innovation that I like is how they suggest taking a playing card to the copy center and having it blown up to blueprint size to make a Queen of Hearts costume. This technique is used in a few ideas and costs just a few dollars. If that's not available to you, they do suggest alternatives.

There are a few extra ideas in this book for last minute costumes, sibling costumes, face painting, papier-mache masks and Halloween treats. Plus, this e-book comes with two extra books. One is on face painting. It includes a few popular designs with step-by-step photos and instructions. The second bonus is Halloween Food for Kids, with recipes and party foods.

If you're looking for a great resource for making easy homemade costumes for your kids, you'll enjoy this book. The Halloween memories from making your own costumes are priceless, and this book makes it easy. Happy Halloween!

Find out more at their website.

They've also just released an entire book on face painting.

Free Wood Craft Project: Halloween Pumpkin

I know it is nowhere near Halloween - But, this is a great project to do now since it is designed as a 3 foot yard pumpkin. I'd rather paint this outdoors or in the garage with the door open. Much warmer here in June than October!

I added it to Halloween Crafts and Tole Painting.
